Son of Caleb and Phebe (Walton) Ball. Married Asenath Moore, Feb 24, 1820. Originally buried at Ball Chapel Cemetery, Posey Twp., Rush County, IN. Re-interred here with mother and wife.
From the Centennial History of Rush County: "In the fall of 1836, Jonathan Ball, with his wife and seven children came to Indiana, driving through with an ox team and "Democrat" wagon and arrived at Rushville after about four weeks of travel. They spent the greater part of the following winter in and around Rushville wher Jonathan Ball, who had learned the tailor's trade when a boy, was able to support his family with his needle. He later purchased a form on Little Blue river in Posey Township and by his industry, clearing the forest by day and working at his trade at night, gained further holdings to which he gradually added until he became the owner of more than 1,000 acres of Rush County land.
"Jonathan Ball was a man of much force and was one of the best known and most influential among the pioneer settlers of that section of the county. He became the owner of 2,300 acres of land in Posey Township and did much to promote the advancement of social and economic conditions thereabout in the formative period of that now prosperous and well developed community."
