Richard Marsters Ball 1856-1931
born 4 February 1856, Stepney, Adelaide, South Austrialia 3
died 11 September 1931, Alameida County, California 4

Notes: In the British 1871 census, a Richard M. Ball,
aged 15 and born in Australia appears among the scholars at
Christ's Hospital School in Newgate, London.

According to the USA 1900 census returns Richard Marsters
Ball, born 1856 in Australia, was living on Fourteenth Street,
Oakland, California, and had been married for one year to
his wife Alice Ball. She was the mother of 7 children, of which
6 were still living. Living with them was his son-in-law (sic)
Charles Plunkett aged 15. According to this census he had
been in the USA since 1880, she since 1877.

In the 1910 census Richard reported that he was married for
the second time. The 1930 census doesn't record the number
of marriages, but it does record that he was first married at
age 30, which would have been in 1886.

In 1910 he said he had immigrated to the USA in 1880; in 1930
he said it had been in 1886. Gregg Dunn thinks it must have
been in the 1870's. It was probably with the rest of his family
around 1878.
