James Ball1

M, #57027, b. 2 March 1817, d. 8 July 1898
     James Ball was born on 2 March 1817 at Butler Co., OH.1 He was the son of Dennis Ball and Margaret Line.1 James Ball married Catherine Hoff, daughter of N. Hoff and Jerusha Larison VanArsdalt, on 11 February 1840 at Montgomery Co., IN.1 James Ball died on 8 July 1898 at Montgomery Co., IN, at age 81.1
     From the "History of Montgomery, Parke and Fountain Counties" published in 1893: James Ball, who resides on Section 31, Wayne Township, is the son of a pioneer of Montgomery County and is numbered among the farmers and stocksmen of the present day who are so ably sustaining and extending the work so well begun by their fathers in making this a well-developed agricultural center. Our subject is a native of Butler County, Ohio, and was born March 2, 1817. His father, whose given name was Dennis, was born in Pennsylvania in 1779. He was a volunteer in the War of 1812. The father of our subject came to Montgomery County in 1826, in the early days of its settlement. He was one of the first settlers of Wayne Township, where he bought of the government eighty-five acre tracts of land. His first work after the land came into his possession was to cut down trees with which to build a log cabin to shelter his family. He proved himself a useful addition to the pioneer workers of the county, and his death in 1839 was considered a loss to the community. When our subject started out in life, he received some assistance from his mother. He first settled on the old homestead after his marriage in1840 to Miss Catherine Hoff, who was born June 17, 1820, and is a member of the Baptist Church. Her parents, N. Hoff and Jerusha Larison Hoff, came from New Jersey and settled in this county in 1833. James and his wife spent the first three years of their wedded life in a log cabin.1
