Death: Feb. 12, 1864

From "Pioneer and Patriot Families of Bradford Co., Vol. II" by Clement Heverly

Thomas Ballard, a native of Massachusetts, moved with his family from Greene Co, NY, joining the settlement of his cousins, the Ballards, in West Burlington, 1800-1.

He was a noted hunter. The trials and privations of the family were many and severe but were met with true pioneer courage, and years of unremitting toil were rewarded by peace and plenty. Mr. Ballard died in Troy at the age of 95 years and his wife at 80.

Mr. Ballard's wife was Katherine Provin and their children, Orrin P., Ira P., Polly, John V., Samantha, James A. P. and Eliza.

Some people believe his father's name was Joseph; this has not been proven. I have done much research and tend to believe that his father was John V. Ballard and his mother Amanda ?. However, that has not been proven either.
