I am looking for more information about a Ballard family that had lived in and around Argyle Maine in the mid 1800s--they probably settled there around 1830, having come up from perhaps Bucksport. One of these men was a Benjamin Ballard (1785-March, 1850) who had several children---and might had other family there as well. I am trying to find more about his children and spouses in Argyle or just even about the family in general in that area...much appreciated!
I do know one of Ben's sons, Elijah Ballard married a Nancy B Buzzell about 1837 and had at least three children---but I do not know when he died. Nancy later married Abner Spencer in December, 1850 in Argyle. They also lived in Old Town from c.1855 onwards.
