      Probably you know this already but there is an Oliver Ballou in the 1820 Census living in Cumberland, RI.  Other sources list a birth date of 1763 so may be him.

      I am trying to find out more about my g,g,g,grandfather who was

      listed as a Private in 1781 under Peek or Moury in the Rhode

      Island militia. I think he was just a young country boy when he

      enlisted. His name was Oliver Ballou.
