William's father, Isaac BALDING, and grandfather, Jacob BALDING had come from New York and were among the very first settlers of Otter Creek Township, arriving there sometime in 1816. William was married to Lucy BALDING (daughter of John S. and Achsah (HOLLISTER) BALDING on November 23, 1843. He, like his father and grandfather, was a farmer.
