   NOTE: The intermarriages in the Stebbins, Burt and Ball families have been of such a complex nature as to puzzle most writers, in fact so complex that scarcely any two have given the data alike, and none have given it correctly. We have given the subject special study, and with the assistance of Rev. Horace Hayden, M.A. (whose line of descent we give below), are enabled to make the following explanations:
   ABIGAIL BURT, daughter of Henry Burt and Eulelia ________, born about 1623 in England; died November 23, 1707, at Springfield, Massachusetts; married 1644 at Springfield, Massachusetts, to FRANCIS BALL, who was drowned October 3, 1048, in the Connecticut river. She was married second, April 2, 1649, at Springfield to BENJAMIN MUNN (of Hartford, Connecticut, in 1637, and removed to Springfield in 1649), who died in November, 1675, at Springfield. She married third December 14, 1676, Lieutenant THOMAS STEBBINS, son of Rowland Stebbins. Her children were:
   Johnathan BALL, born October 6, 1645; Married Sarah Miller.
   Samuel BALL, born March 16, 1647; married Mary Graves.
   Abigail MUNN, born June 28, 1650; married Thomas Stebbins ( 7 ) son of Lieutenant Thomas Stebbins ( 2 ).
   John MUNN, born February 8, 1652; married Abigail Parsons, daughter of Deacon Benjamin Parsons.
   Benjamin MUNN, born 1654-5; settled in Brimfield.
   James MUNN, born 1655-6; married Mary (Moody) Patton.
   Nathaniel MUNN, born 1661, married Sarah Chapin, daughter of Japhet Chapin. She had no children by her third marriage.
   SAMUEL BALL, son of Abigail Burt and Francis Ball, was born March 16, 1647, at Springfield, Massachusetts; died September 13, 1689, at Springfield, Massachusetts; married January 15, 1671, probably at Hatfield, Massachusetts to MARY GRAVES, born about 1654, at Wetherfield, Connecticut, died May 21, 1727, at Springfield, Massachusetts, daughter of John Graves, of Hadley, Massachusetts and Mary Smith. MARY GRAVES BALL was married second, March 11, 1690 (Graves Genealogy says September 10, 1690) at Springfield, Massachusetts, to ( 12 ) BENJAMIN STEBBINS, born April 11, 1658, at Springfield, Massachusetts, died October 12, 1698, at Springfield, Massachusetts, son of ( 2 ) Lieutenant Thomas Stebbins and Hannah Wright. MARY GRAVES BALL STEBBINS was married third, December 29, 1704, to James Warriner.
   CHILDREN OF SAMUEL BALL:
   Mary Ball, born 6/12/1673; married John Hitchcock. Their son Samuel Hitchcock married Ruth Stebbins ( 300 ).
   Francis Ball, born 4/4/1675; married Martha Blackman. (See Benjamin Stebbins No. 62).
   Elizabeth Ball, born January 14, 1677; married Nathaniel Sikes.
   Mercy Ball, born December 15, 1679; died September 14, 1683.
   Abigail Ball, born 7/18/1682; married Moses Parsons.
   SAMUEL BALL, when a young man of eighteen, was sentenced to the whipping post by the same court that fined another for "smoking on the Sabbath day." His great and unpardonable offence (spelling from text), for which he should have been hung according to the idea of justice held by our ungodly-godly forefathers, was abusing his stepfather, Benjamin Munn, by saying to him "A father indeed, you are no better than and old Indian." This occurred at the same time that a young girl was hung in London for stealing a yard of silk ribbon. There were then one hundred and sixty offences against English law, which were punishable by "death without benefit of clergy." Samuel Ball had the option of paying fifty shillings in lieu of the lashes he was to receive, so like a man he went to the office and paid his money. This is an object lesson to posterity, showing how men as narrow as our ancestors, could still be honest men, and, as far as they knew, godly men. Genealogy proves the truth of John Wesley's statement to his young preachers, that "the Lord can live with a great many people that we can't live with."

________

BIRTH: Birth may be in Ipswich.

BIOGRAPHY:

From "Early days in New England": On Jan. 5, 1641, HE received lot no. 6, which is 8 rods in breath, for planting

In 1645, Thomas Stebbins and William Warrener were chosen assurveyors for Springfield, MA. After this date his name appears frequently in town records, indicating that he was quite a prominent citizen. He received several different grants of land over the years, and he served as townsman, or selectman in 1652, 1653, and 1655. In addition, he served as the Towne Measurer in 1654, 1672, 1674, 1675, 1681, and 1682 (Greenlee, Ralph Stebbine & Greenlee, Robert Lemuel, The Stebbins Genealogy, 1904, p. 65). He took the oath of allegiance along with other Springfield inhabitants on 3 Dec 1678. John Pynchon performed that duty.

Sept. 24, 1653: John Pynchon bought Nonatuck of the Indians; a large tract on the west side of the Connecticut River, including Northampton and other towns. The Sachems, of Chiefs, who signed the deed, were Chickwallopp, or Wawhillowa, Nenessehalant, Nissicohee, and Paquahalant. The witnesses were Elizur Holyoke, Henry Burt, Thomas Cooper, and Thomas Stebbins.

Thomas is listed among those who served under Capt. William Turner against the Indians in the Turner's Falls Fight, 19 May 1676, Upper Falls of the Connecticut River, Massachusetts. Negotiations with the Indians had begun in 1676, but the Americans decided to attack after the Indians took about 70 head of cattle in Hatfield. The Americans attacked while the Indians slept, and they destroyed the Indian village.

Thomas and his wife were brought before a grand jury, along with other citizens, on 26 March 1676. They were accused of extravagancies not becoming a wilderness state: "for wearing of silk & yt in a flouting manner & attire for Long haire & other extravegancies, Contrary to honest & Labor Order & Demeanor not Becoming a Wilderness State at Least ye Professional of Christianity & Religion" (Greenlee & Greenlee, 1904, p. 70).

According to Burt (Burt, Henry M., The First Century of the History of Springfield, Vol. II, Springfield, MA, 1898), Thomas was probably a tailor, judging by the items purchased from John Pynchon. He opened an account in Aug 1652 and by the following Feb. it amounted to over 14 pounds. One of the items shown in John Pynchon's account book is "Delivered to Thomas Stebbins 54 yds of white shag cloth for wastecoates & Stockens..." Later he delivered to Pynchon 17 doz. caps and over one hundred "wastecoates."
