Thank you so much, Sarah for your response. Your information is so much more than I expected. If you might be interested in information on the family of Amza Ball there is a tri-county site that covers Chemung County New York, as well as Tioga County, and Bradford County, Pa. that has several pieces of information on the Ball family, including a list of the children of Amza Ball's father, Samuel Ball Jr., and a will of Samuel Ball Sr's wife, Martha Van Duzer. I would be willing to share some of my information on Amza Ball and his second marriage to Sophia Rachel (or Rachel Sophia) Dwinell.
Once again, thank you so much for your assistance.

Hi again, Sarah,
Based on the information that you sent me, I see now that the Juliaett M. Ball that is buried in Greenwood/St. James Cemetery in Amherst, Portage County, Wisconsin is Julia Danforth, as the death date is the same as your information. I am curious as to the cause of her death, as she was only 40 years old at the time.
As to the mother of Amza (or Amasa as you have it shown) Ball, I have seen sources on-line that show her as Abigail Thompson, but don't really have any documented information saying what her maiden name was, so it may very well have been Bennett.
I have an obituary for Amza Ball showing that in 1882, he crossed the plains with his 2nd wife, Sophia Dwinell, and settled in the Boise Valley in Idaho.
I appreciate your efforts and assistance. Thanks again.

I have a project of taking photos of headstones in Canyon County, Idaho and happened across your research on the message board on Ancestry.com. I have the following listings for the Ball surname in Kohlerlawn Cemetery in Nampa, Canyon County, Idaho. I see the A L Ball is probably your Amza or Amasa Ball and Sophia Rachel Ball, his wife is there also. These photos are free upon your request.

Ball, A L 1827-1911 KL
Ball, Landon C 1860-1937 KL
Ball, Sophia Rachel 1840-1922 KL
Ball, Susana C Fahrney 1858-1928 KL

Also you may want to search the site further for other connected relatives as there are other Ball family members buried locally that may or may not be related. All photos are free and there is a small search engine for the website there. Enter the surname you may want and good luck! Simply go to my website at
