This was the first concern in that part of New

business until about 1881, when the firm be-

(IV) Joseph, son of John (3)
BALL Ball, was bom in Watertown,
May 4, 1674. Among his children
were: 1. Peter, who sold his lands in that sec-
tion and located in Southborough, where he
became the progenitor of all of that name in
that section, among them being the Hon.
Phineas Ball, of Worcester, and Rev. George
S. Ball, of Upton; Eben Tourjee, celebrated

scendants. 2. Josiah, see below.

(V) Josiah, son of Joseph Ball, was born

ber 28, 1791. He was a man of influence in
his day and left a large estate to his children.
June 5, 1 73 1, he with his brother Peter pur-
chased and took a deed from William Brewer,
of Boston, for several adjacent parcels of
land, for which they paid the sum of one hun-
dred and eighty pounds. These parcels in-
cluded almost two hundred acres of land, to
which belonged a mansion-house, and also a
two-acre right in the town's common lands
after the eighth division. Josiah Ball gradual-
ly added to his landed possessions until he was

the owner of several hundred acres which he
left to his children, although none of it now
remains in the hands of his lineal descendants.
He owned one slave, named Andrew Dewner
or Duno, who was presented to him by a
friend in Boston, when it was but four weeks
old. Mr. Ball brought the little fellow to
his home on horseback, nourishing him on the
way with milk from a nursing-bottle. Upon
his arrival at his home he found that all of
the family had retired, and finding his wife
asleep he placed the sleeping child on her bed
while he cared for his horse. Before he re-
turned the child awoke and by its cries
aroused his sleeping bed-fellow, who was con-
siderably alarmed by this demonstration ; her
husband's entrance soon cleared up matters,
however, and Andrew grew up a faithful ser-
vant, being awarded his freedom and a horse
upon attaining the age of twenty-one years.

Marlboro, whom he married. Mr. Ball gave

fence" in 1635; a William Downes also ap-
pears in the records of that year, and several
other early settlers of this name located in
various parts of New England. The Canton
family, mentioned below, was founded in this
country by an immigrant who arrived at a
much later date than those just referred to,
and among his descendants was Commodore
John Downes of the United States Navy, born
in 1784, died in 1854; was a son of Jesse, and

mediate vicinity of the Doty Tavern. In 1740

with her, instead of binding them out, as a
woman in her cicumstances was expected to
do at that time. She later received a legacy
from John Newton, of Milton, and her death

Early in life he entered the Boston and" Provi-
dence Railway Company and served in the
capacity of clerk when railroads were in their
infancy. He afterward learned paper-making
and still later became a pattern-maker. He
finally returned to the family homestead in
Canton and resided there for the remainder of
his life. Naturally reserved and domestic in
his habits, his pleasures were derived chiefly
from his home life, and he devoted consider-
able time to the study of history. He was
not interested in politics beyond the exercise
of his elective privileges, and he held no pub-
lic offices. June 6, 1836, he married Hannah
