Ballard Re-union, 1903 .... 58 


Majsty years ago the compiler of this record learned 
that his great-grandfather, Zaccheus Ballord, was a 
soldier in the Kevolntionary War and also in the 
French and Indian War. This information came from 
the grand children of Zaccheus, the oldest of whom 
was but five years old at the time of Zaccheus' death, 
and he was probably the only one who had any per- 
sonal recollection of his grandfather. Years later, the 
record of Zaccheus Ballord, as it stands in the Revo- 
lutionary Records of Massachusetts, was obtained- 
upon application to Secretary Olin of that State. In 
the mean time the writer had gradually accumulated 
a partial register of the children — grand children and 
further descendants of Zaccheus to the number of 
several hundred. This register is embodied in these 
notes. They might have been much more extensive 
if all the inquiries for information had been replied to. 

As it is, no one realizes more fully than the writer 
that they are incomplete and not without faults. At 
first two copies were made of them and then it seemed 
best for their preservation to put them in book form. 

For those interested and those who may come after, 
for those only, it has been done without price. 

E. S. Ballord. 

Davknport, Iowa. 


In the last French and Indian war, 1754-60, he was 
enrolled in Captain Henry Eames' Company of militia 
of Framingham, April 26th, 1757, Col. Joseph Bnck- 
minster's Regiment. At the investment of Fort Wm. 
Henry, this regiment was quickly on the march for 
its relief. Tidings that the French did not follow up 
their advantage, they were ordered home. I find no 
other mention of their services in this war. Certainly 
his experience did not prevent him from taking part 
in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted in Captain 
Jeremiah Kingsley's Company, Col. Jonathan Holmes' 
Regiment, in which he served 43 days. He then 
enlisted for the war from Oxford, Mass., in Col. Shep- 
ard's 4th Mass., Capt. Moore's Company. This was 
in the Continental Army. In it he served from March 
5th, 1777, to April 20th, 1780; then was dismissed 
from service for disability, too soon to be at Yorktown 
with his regiment and witness the surrender of Corn- 

Zaccheus'' Ballokd ( William,'^ Nathayiiel^^ Wil- 
liam}^ of Lynn, was born in Framingham, Mass., 
March 21st, 1730-1 (with his twin brother Timothy, 
who also was a soldier in the Revolutionary War), 
died April, 1800. Grave in the Bates burying- 
ground, Thompson, Conn. A small headstone, with 
name almost obliterated, was the only marker, until, 
in 1901, a descendant caused a large boulder to be 
placed upon the grave and inscribed upon it : 


A Soldier of the Revolution, 

4th Mass. 


Elizabeth Valentine, his wife. 



1. The immigrant ancestor of this family is proved 
to have been William^ Ballard who was baptized at 
Sanford Priors, Warwickshire, Eng., and on August 
12, 1603, with his wife Elizabeth, daughter Hester 
and son Jo. he came on the ship James in 1635, and 
landed at Boston, Massachusetts, whence he made his 
way to Saugus, Essex County, Mass., which was later 
incorporated as Lynn. His estate was on the Boston 
road, on the west of Saugus river; he was admitted 
as freeman May 2, 1636, and the same year was a 
member of the Quarterly Court. His nuncupative 
will was given the first of the first month, 164:1 ; he 
gave one half of his estate to his wife and the other 
half to his children. His wife Elizabeth survived 

They had children :

, who died in Lynn, May 16, 1724; he died 

there January 12, 1721-2.

14. William^ Ballard, son of Nathaniel- ( IVil-

23, 1686. He removed to Framingham, Mass., in 

1728. He married (1) ; she died ;

25. Zaccheus'' Ballord, son of William'^ {JSFa- 
tlianiel^ William^) and Deborah (Ivory) Ballard, was 
born in Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachu- 
setts, March 21, 1730-31. AVith his twin brother, 
Timothy, he changed the spelling of his surname from 
the type Ballard to Ballord, and many of his children 
followed his example ; his son Lynde adopted this 
form ; but about 1825, the eldest son of Lynde 
chose to revert to the more ancient form, and his ten 
brothers and sisters went with him, as did their de- 
scendants, until the compiler of this genealogy, a great 
grandson, reverted to the later method of Ballord as 
did his family; besides these there were only two or 
three others who adopted this usage. In Burke's 
General Armory both forms are given. 

Zaccheus* Ballord married in Hopkinton, Middlesex 
County, Mass., in 1758, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas 
and Elizabeth (Gooch) Valentine; she was born in 

Here we take occasion to correct a mistake in Tem- 
ple's History of Framingham, which records the maid- 
en name of Zaccheus Ballord's wife as "Elizabeth 
Clays." Again, in the "Valentines in America," is 
the statement that Mary Valentine, daughter of 
Thomas, was the wife of Zaccheus; whereas, it was 
learned from a personal visit to the Pennsylvanian 
family of Joseph Ballard that this same Mary married 
this Joseph of Bradford County whither they removed 
in 1795-0, and where many of their direct descend- 
ants are now residing. The father of these two 


daughters, Thomas Valentine, was a son of John and 
Mary (Lynde) Valentine, and Mary Lynde was a 
grand daughter of Sir Charles Hobby, who was 
knighted at Windsor Castle in 1705 by Queen Ann 
for his eminent services rendered in Kew England 
where he commanded a Massachusetts regiment at 
the seige of Port Royal, Annapolis County, IS^ova 
Scotia, and later became vice governor of Annapolis 
City. His portrait, in his official robes, was painted 
by Sir Peter Lely in 1705 and hangs in the Museum 
of Fine Arts at Boston. At the expiration of his 
governorship in ]^ova Scotia, he returned to Boston, 
where he revived and was at one time Commander of 
the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company. He 
sailed for London and died there in 1714. In other 
lines, Mrs. Elizabeth Ballord was a descendant from 
the Gooch, Lynde, N^ewdigate and other prominent 
Boston families. 

After some ten years residence in Framingham, 
where his farm was adjacent to Shepard's Mills, Zac- 
cheus Ballord migrated to Leicester, Worcester Coun- 
ty, Mass.; in 1775, he bought the Crafts Davis farm 
in the southerly section of the town of Oxford, Wor- 
cester County, which was contiguous to the Connec- 
ticut boundary line; thereby he was an owner of what 
was the original homestead lot No. 40 of its first town 
plat. In 1785, he removed his family to Thompson, 
Windham County, Connecticut, where he died April, 
1800, and his widow married (2), Jonathan Willis, of 
Thompson; she died there March 26, 1807, and was 
buried in West Thompson.

warrant his taking the course of study at the Baptist 
Theological Seminary at Hamilton, New York. This 



Seminary was the beginning of the present Colgate

lishing Sunday Schools in almost every town in North

teach in the same as early as his nineteenth year, con- 
tinuing this for nineteen years longer in various dis- 
trict schools and at Bacon Academy. The only boast 
he ever was known to make was that " when teach- 
ing in Thompson, Conn., he received the highest 
wages, which were thirteen dollars a month, boarding 
around, that were ever given to any teacher in the 
town." After ending his career as a teacher, he be- 
came a member of the School Board, and remained on 
that until he was rendered incapable by his extreme 
age. "He made two trips to New York state and 
Michigan, then Uhe West,'" but the rocks and hills 
of New England possessed superior attraction for 
him. He busied himself in civic affairs, held the office 
of selectman, assessor, justice of the peace. Although 
in his early years he was a sincere believer in religious 
faith, and was an active Bible Class teacher in the Sun- 
day School, yet he was over eighty years of age when 
he decided to ask for baptism and thus be made a 
member of the church. Enjoying perfect health from 
his childhood, never ailing so as to be confined to his 
bed, he at last succumbed to increasing years, and, as 
the oldest man in the town, departed "full of years."

87. Zaccheus A.^ Ballard, son of Lynde^ (Zac- 
cJieiis,^ William,^ uSfatlianielf William^) and Amy 
(Green) Ballord, was born at Thompson, Conn., Jan- 
uary 21 , 1822. When he was eight years old, he went 
to make his home with his half brother, Valentine, 
where he remained until he was sixteen, when he be- 
came a clerk at Hezekiah Olney's store; from there, he 
was at a livery stable with Yernon Styler, where he ac- 
quired that knowledge of men and horses which served 
him so well all his years. He could instantly recall 
the countenance and name of almost every person 
with whom he had once been associated ; after he had 
once driven a horse, he could recognize it whenever 

SIXTH gen:eration. 27 

or wherever he met it afterwards, and this quick per- 
ception remained with him until age dulled his facul- 
ties. Almost every year he went to Vermont to buy 
a " shipment of horses," always styled a horse dealer, 
never a horse jockey; whatever statement he made in 
regard to an animal was always what he himself be- 
lieved, and "he generally knew the truth about a 
horse." As time went on, he became a dealer in cat- 
tle, as well as horses, and also " traded in farms." No 
matter what his possessions were, he was always ready 
to sell, whenever any good offer was made. For sev- 
eral terms, he became a manager of the Poor Farms at 
Oxford, Mass., and at Putnam, Conn. 

He married, November 26, 1843, Mary Ann Whit- 
ney; she was born March 2, 1823, at Petersham, Mass.,

(ZaccJieus,'^ William,^ Nathaniel,^ William^) and 
Amy (Green) Ballord, was born at Thompson, Conn., 
March 1, 1825. For many years she taught school, 
as did more than twenty-five of the descendants of 
her father. She married, April 9, 1850, Albertus 
Bruce, a farmer, horticulturist, botanist, poet, etc. 
They reside on their farm at Pomfret Landing, Conn., 
where in sound health they are now passing their oc- 
togenarian 3^ears. 

Note. — It is somewhat notable that so many of Lynde Ballard's 
descendants spent and are sjsending a portion of their days as teachers. 
The writer has a record of at least twenty-six of them who have taught 
school, ranging from primary to high, including academic and semi- 
nary ; among them are graduates of Harvard, Brown, Columbia, 
Wellesley, Colgate. 


Prof. John Bates Clark of Columbia University, is also a descendant 
of Zaccheus Ballord, but not of Lynde, so is not in the above named 
twenty-six. Of teachers who may be descendants of Zaccheus and 
not of Lynde, Prof. Clark is the only one who has come to our notice.

years of age he taught in a school and so earned 
money enough to enter the State University at Ann 
Arbor, but was not strong enough to continue, and 
feeble health forced him to leave before his second 
years' studies were concluded; but he persevered in 
study while he applied himself to business, in which 
" he was most successful, honored and trusted by all 
with whom he was associated. A friend said he 
was a gentleman of the old school, a sparkling and 
scholarly gentleman." He became a director of the 
]!^assau Bank of New York, of the Brooklyn Savings 
Bank, of the Academy of Music, the Long Island

ment of the State University of Iowa, receiving the 
degree of Ph.C. in 1896. He now is the manager of 
the Ballard Drug and Dental Company, which was 
established in 1857 by Esek Steere Ballord with the 
firm name of Taylor & Ballord. Mr. Taylor retired 
in 1870. The firm name was continued as B. S. 
Ballord until 1871, when Mr. John Ballard was ad- 
mitted, and the partnership was continued as the E. S. 
Ballord & Co. until 1903, when E. S. Ballord retired. 
Thus this business remained in one family for fifty 
years, and, it is hoped, will so continue for the coming 
one hundred years. Harry Winthrop Ballard married 
at Davenport, September 9, 1902, Nettie Olivia Monk. 
They had:

The reunions of the direct descendants of Zaccheus* 
and Lynde^ Ballard have become such a prominent 
feature in their history that, at the request of the 
author of this volume, I give a little sketch of them. 

January 1, 1888, at a reception given by Stephen 
Ballard and wife at their 25th anniversary, at which 
time a goodly number of the Ballards were present, 
the remark was made by Sarah Ballard Spaulding, 
and warmly seconded by Salem Ballard, that it seemed 
so good to see so many Ballards all together, and so 
full of pleasure and enjoyment, that we ought to get 
together somewhere when it was warm weather and 
hold a grand Ballard picnic. This thought was so 
warmly applauded by all present that a committee 
appointed one to be held August 15, 1888, in Elliott's 
Grove, in Thompson. 

The occasion was all that could be desired. Over 
one hundred were present. From Dudley, Wood- 
stock, Pomfret, Putnam, Dayville, Thompson, Daven- 
port, la., and Memphis, Tenn., came representatives 
of the Ballards. 

A history of the Ballards from William^ of Lynn, 
born Sanford Priors, Warwickshire, England, baptized 
August 13, 1603, to the present time, taken largely 
from a report of E. S. Ballord of Davenport, la., was 
prepared and read by Stephen Ballard. 

The occasion seemed to call for something more 
permanent, and an organization was formed with the 
provision that we should meet biennially as near the 
middle of August as possible. 


Samuel Spaulding was elected president, ]S"ewton 
Ballard secretary and treasurer, William Converse 
elected collector, and Stephen Ballard historian. 

The plates used at dinner on this occasion were all 
printed "Ballard Reunion, Elliott's Grove, Aug, 15, 
1888." " Keep your record clean." This motto has 
been permanently adopted, and we are most happy to 
say that it has been faithfully kept. And it is also 
reported that as yet none of the Ballards have been 
obliged to go " over the hills to the poorhouse," unlesf 
it was to make it profitable. 

At this meeting the seven oldest Ballards, children 
of Lynde, were present, namely, Winthrop, Valentine, 
Hamilton, Salem, Zaccheus, Sarah, and Elizabeth. 
But two of them are living at present. 

After the second meeting, in 1890, it was voted to 
hold the reunions yearly instead of biennially, and the 
place of meeting was soon changed to Nichols' Grove, 
where they have been held ever since. 

Quite a number of interesting events have occurred 
in the eighteen years, which, had we space, we would 
like to report. I will refer to only one or two. 

The first one, because it has money in it. 

The historian, Mrs. Clarance Nash, in her report 
for the year, spoke of the unkempt condition of the 
Bates Cemetery, so-called, where lie buried the re- 
mains of Zaccheus and Lynde Ballord, and suggested 
that a fund be raised, the income of which to per- 
petually keep these plots in better condition. This 
was highly approved of, and a good sum was imme- 
diately contributed, the income of which will be 
sufficient to always keep their graves in good condi- 
tion. Samuel Spaulding was appointed fund agent. 
The money he soon deposited in the Putnam Savings 

I am glad to report that the plots of Zaccheus and 
Lynde Ballord have been spaded up, reseeded, and 
indeed all the headstones and markers in Bates Ceme- 
tery have been reset and straightened.

In 1901, the historian, M. Helen Converse, was re- 
quested to compile the reports for the last twelve 
years, tabulating the births, deaths, and marriages, 
with the dates of each given correctly, which she did, 
giving 68 births, 37 deaths, and 37 marriages. All 
were so highly pleased with this report and with its 
value for future reference, that it was immediately 
voted to have this report, together with the first re- 
port in 1888, and some incidents in other reports, 
printed in pamphlet form. Three hundred copies 
were printed, and over 250 of these have been dis- 

These annual reunions have become such an inter- 
esting feature that they are anxiously looked forward 
to by both old and young; and in numbers and inter- 
est increase each year.

Nathaniel Ballard married Rebecca Hudson. 
Zaccheus Ballord's widow married (2) Jonathan 

Strike out "or so." 

Mrs. Salome ( Joslin) , widow of Benjamin Alton, 
was a great granddaughter of Zaccheus Ballord. 

Page 24. Ellen Holmes died in 1906. 

Page 24. First cousin, one remove. 

Page 46. No. 304. Susemihil instead of Sussenmihl. 

Page 50. No. 341. For Martha, read Bertha Ballard. 

Page 51. No. 350. For Oneto, read Oneonto. 

The Ballards of the sixth generation and their descendants 
used the early form of Ballard with the exception of Mr. Esek 
Steere Ballord, who, with his immediate family, spelled it with 
an " o," so adopting the form used by Zaccheus Ballord. These 
two forms were intended to be strictly followed in this mono- 
graph, and where there are deviations they were not noticed 
until too late to change them.
