Mary Van Horn1

F, #18878, b. 22 January 1726, d. 6 December 1759
     Mary Van Horn was born on 22 January 1726 at Springfield, Hampden Co., MA.1 She was the daughter of Born Van Horn and Sarah Smith.1 Mary Van Horn married James Ball, son of James Ball and Mary Mauge, on 22 March 1739 at Northampton, Hampshire Co., MA.1 Mary Van Horn died on 6 December 1759 at South Hadley, Hampshire Co., MA, at age 33.2
     Comment by DGB: Either the birth year for this Mary is incorrect or the wife of James Ball was a different Mary that was born several years earlier. It is of concern that the current data shows Mary to have married James when she was just 13 years old. End of comment.
