William Ball1

M, #2396, b. 13 April 1755, d. 25 January 1832
     William Ball was born on 13 April 1755 at Hollis, Hillsborough Co., NH.1,2 He was the son of Ebenezer Ball and Sarah Gookin.1 William Ball and Sarah Woodman posted marriage intentions on 23 December 1780 at Salem, Essex Co., MA.3 William Ball married Elizabeth Colburn, daughter of Robert Colburn, on 9 February 1781 at Hollis, Hillsborough Co., NH.4 William Ball married Rebecca Kinney on 7 December 1786 at Hollis, Hillsborough Co., NH.4 William Ball married Elizabeth Day on 14 December 1800 at Ipswich, Essex Co., MA.5 William Ball and Elizabeth Day posted marriage intentions on 15 November 1800 at Salem, Essex Co., MA; "Betsey Day.3 William Ball died on 25 January 1832 at age 76.1 He was buried at Congregational Church Cemetery, Hollis, Hillsborough Co., NH.6
     Comment by DGB: This is a very difficult family to sort out. the easiest way I can reconcile the patchwork of data is to make an unsupported assumption about the marriage to Elizabeth Colburn either being to a different William Ball and that this William Ball married Sarah Woodman or assuming that this William Ball was simultaneously married to two women in different towns. Alternatively, one could fabricate a more complicated assumption that William Ball was courting two women at the same time (Sarah and Elizabeth) and got engaged to Sarah and married to Elizabeth; but it was Sarah that was listed as the mother to the Ball baby that was baptized in Salem MA in December 1781, so perhaps Elizabeth died early and William quickly married Sarah. End of comment. He was a Revolutionary Wary soldier from Walpole, NH.1
