Peter Ball1

M, #13037, b. circa 1780, d. circa 1860
     Peter Ball was born circa 1780 at RI.1,2 He was the son of Peter Ball and Elizabeth Sims.1 Peter Ball married Naomi (????) on 13 November 1837 at Oaksville, Otsego Co., NY.1 Peter Ball died circa 1860 at Exeter, Otsego Co., NY, age about 80.1,3
     Comment by DGB: There is some confusion around Peter Ball. If one just looks at the 1820, 1830 and 1840 censuses for Exeter, Otsego Co., NY, one finds a Peter Ball with a first wife of similar age in 1820 and 1830, and a second wife some 15-20 years younger for the 1840 census. This latter event matches a marriage in Otsego Co. NY in 1837 between a Peter Ball and a Mrs. Naomi Fish. It would appear that over the years this Exeter NY Peter Ball had at least six daughters and two sons; the data on the five known daughters for the Peter Ball of Rhode Island can be made to match.
     For some of the censuses there were two other similar age Ball families (Joseph in 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850 and William in 1820). The Peter Ball, son of Peter Ball and Elizabeth Sims, did not have brothers named either Joseph or William that could be these neighbors. That Peter did have a cousin Joseph S. (son of John Ball and Fidelia Littleford) that is probably the Joseph Ball also at Exeter NY in 1850 at age 82 and born Rhode Island; however, the age in 1850 would have been a couple years older than shown for the Joseph in 1830 (age 50-59, rather than 62). That Peter Ball's brother Joshua did have a son William that left Block Island RI as an early age and nothing is known about him; perhaps he was the William Ball on the 1820 census.
     The problem is that there is no concrete connection between the Peter Ball, son of Peter and Elizabeth Ball of Block Island RI, and the Peter Ball living at Exeter NY. Nor is there evidence that either Peter Ball or his family still was living in the Exeter NY area for either the 1850 or 1860 censuses; yet, that Peter Ball was supposed to have lived there until about age 80 according to his card in the Druse collection. End of comment.
