Isaac was the 3rd of 4 children (3 sons and 1 daughter) born of Isaac Ball (1710-1789) and his wife Rachel Howe (1710-1779). Isaac's siblings were: Adonijah (1739-1760), Rachel (b. 1744) and Moses (1748-1820).

Isaac, while residing in Athol, Worcester County, Massachusetts, marched as a Private on the alarm of April 19, 1775 (the Lexington Alarm) in Captain Ichabod Dexter's Company, Colonel Doolittle's Regiment of Massachusetts Militia. After serving 5 days, on April 24, 1775, he enlisted as a Private in Captain Dexter's Company, Colonel Woodbridge's Regiment in which he served at least 3 months and 14 days and probably into October, 1775.
