Orville A. Ball1

M, #22873, b. 18 February 1808, d. 24 January 1903
     Orville A. Ball was born on 18 February 1808 at Moretown, Washington Co., VT.2 He was the son of Amos Ball and Mercy Mary Whitney.2 Orville A.

     Comment by DGB: The 1850 census lists a daughter Alvira in this family, but it is my opinion that this was an error in recording son Oliver, mostly because Oliver was not listed in the 1850 census, but was there in 1860 and on, but also that there does not seem to be any other record showning Alvira. Further, going by the majority of the subsequent censuses, the birth year for Seth should be 1828 and the birth year for Theron should be about 1831; Theron does not show on the 1830 census and is under 10 for the 1840 census.

Ball, son of Amos Ball and Mercy Mary Whitney, circa 1824.2 Mahala Shaw died on 29 April 1886 at East Lemon, Wyoming Co., PA, at age 77.3
     From an obituary: Mahala Ball, wife of Orville Ball, passed peacefully away from earthly home and friends on Thursday last, in her seventy-eighth year. Though for a long time she had been ill without hope of recovery, yet at this time she appeared so much better that death came suddenly and unexpectedly. She leaves a husband and several children, grand-children, and great-grand-children. There seemed to be room in her heart of all a mother's love to all. Old-fashioned hospitality (not so common as it once was) seemed to be a failing with her and many a wanderer has found food and lodging beneath her roof. East Lemon.3
