Birth: 1658
Death: Sep. 18, 1675
South Deerfield
Franklin County
Massachusetts, USA

Also spelled Baulch, Bolch, Bollsh, etc. Lived in Salem Farms (present-day Beverly), Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony, per Eben Putnam. A colonial soldier, serving under Captain Lothrop, who died in the Battle of Bloody Brook. The soldiers were guarding a haul of grain that teamsters were moving to storage.

Joseph Balch, born around 1658 at the Balch homestead, was one of the youngest to die in this battle; this may be why a probate record for him has not been located. He was the child of Benjamin Balch (son of Benjamin the immigrant) and his first wife Sarah, daughter of Thomas Gardner.
