Stephen Ball1

M, #35830, b. 21 October 1749, d. 22 December 1783
     Stephen Ball was born on 21 October 1749 at NJ.1 He was the son of Ezekiel Ball and Mary Jones.1 Stephen Ball married Sarah Ross, daughter of George Ross and Joanna Ogden, circa 1768.1 Stephen Ball died on 22 December 1783 at Chatham, Morris Co., NJ, at age 34.1,2
     He was known as Dr. Stephen Ball, engaged in the practice of medicine. His formal education is not known; medical training in that day consisted or apprenticeship to a doctor for a period of some six years after which a man was considered ready for his own practice. As a side-line, Stephen also sold tickets for the Hanover, NJ lottery.1 On 1 January 1777 he enlisted in the Revolutionary army and was commissioned surgeon's mate in the first New Jersey Regiment, commanded at that time by the Rt. Hon. William Earl Sterling. In the spring his regiment was in Elizabeth, but later that year he probably took part in the disastrous battle of Brandywine, Pa., which led to the loss of Philadelphia to the British. Stephen was reported 'sick absent' in October, but returned to duty November 4. Again in December he was reported sick. Stephen was reported absent without leave in January, but returned in February. Stephen's regiment was back in Elizabethtown by August; there he remained through the winter of 1778-1779. Stephen's military service ended in 1781 when he resigned with the rank of surgeon.1
