In the first book* ever published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), Dr. Henry Bond presented what was known in 1850 about the families of early Watertown, with a still-definitive account of the history in which they participated.
This is his “memorial” of four Ball generations in Middlesex County; the first two Johns are our Mary Ball’s immigrant grandfather (#1) and father (#3).
