    ELIAS BALL (1676?-1751). Father of John Coming Ball; grandfather of Henry
    Laurens (1763-1821) and John Laurens; father-in-law of John Ashby
    (1698-1729), George Austin, Philip Dawes, Henry Laurens (1724-1792), and
    John Vicaridge.
    Elias Ball was born in the parish of Stockentine, Devonshire, the second
    son of William Ball, a farmer. About 1698 he immigrated to South
    Carolina, where his father's half-brother, John Coming, had already
    settled. He inherited Comingtee at the 'tee' of the Cooper River from
    John Coming's widow, Affra. In 1701 he married Elizabeth Harleston who
    was a relative of his aunt, Affra Coming. They had many children, but
    only four survived childhood: Anne (m. 1st Philip Dawes. 2nd George
    Austin), Elias, Elizabeth (m. 1st John Ashby, 2nd John Vicaridge, 3rd
    Richard Shubrick), and John Coming. Elizabeth Harleston Ball died in
    1720, and within eleven months, much to the consternation of his first
    wife's family, Elias Ball remarried. His second wife was Mary Delamere, a
    girl no older than his eldest daughter. Their union produced seven
    offspring, but only Eleanor (m. Henry Laurens) reached adulthood..
