Places of residence
Jason Ballard was a friend to the Crosby family, early converts to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and later missionaries to French Polynesia. Ballard did not accompany the rest of the congregation to Kirkland, Ohio in 1836, and the rest of his Mormon affiliation is unknown.
The day before they [the missionaries, Elder Brent and his companion] left br[other] Jason Ballad was baptised, also his mother and aunt. We all felt very severely the loss of their society.
