US Congressman from Virginia. The son of Colonel James Bell, a longtime member of the Virginia House of Delegates, he received a liberal education before following his father into a political career. He served seven terms in the House of Delegates (1805 to 1806, 1810 to 1814) and four in the State Senate (1814 to 1817). During the War of 1812 he was assigned as paymaster for the 92nd Virginia Regiment. An early Republican, Ball was elected to four consecutive terms in the US House of Representatives, representing Virginia's 9th and 13th (now obsolete) Congressional Districts, and served from 1817 until his death in office. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
