"Rev. John C. Ball, died in Lock's Village, Mass, Feb. 4, 1872, aged 33 years. He became a Christian when quite young and united with the church in Ashfield, Mass. He began to preach in 1862 and was ordained at the September Quarterly Meeting in 1867. His ministry was mostly in this Q.M. He preached as he had opportunity in Leverett, Shutesbury and Ashfield, Mass, till 1868, when he became pastor of the church in Straton, VT and preached also for the West Jamaica church. His death was most painful. While watching with a sick daughter, he fell asleep and overturned the lamp. The oil saturated his clothes so that he was fatally burned before he could be relieved. He was a devoted and consistent Christian, and willing to do what he could."
