An Elaborate History and Genealogy of the Ballous in America
By Adin Ballou, 1888
Simeon Ballou settled, lived and died on a homestead near what is now Slaterville, R.I. It occupied a hill on the southerly side of Branch River, and was both conspicuous and valuable. No biographical incidents or characteristics have been vouchsafed to us, but we have no reason to doubt that he and his wife were worthy people. He d. May 3, 1786, and was buried in the vicinity of Woonsocket. Mary, his widow, survived him over 40 years. She found a comfortable home with her dr. Rachel (Ballou) Westcott and husband, and finally died with them in Charlestown, N.H., where they settled. She d. there July 22, 1827, and her grave-stone may be found in the old No. Charlestown Burying Ground. She must have been over 80 years of age, though by report of the inscription it made her but 72 or 73. This would reduce her to childhood at her mge., 1762, and must be erroneous.
