Samuel Ballinger, son of Thomas Ballinger and Elizabeth Elkinton, was born 5 mo. 19, 1733, as recorded in Quaker records of Evesham, Burlington Co NJ, and in a Bible owned by Lydia Ballinger Bell in 1929. He died 2 mo. 22, 1822 in Perry Twp., Logan Co OH (or at Evesham NJ). He was married first 11 mo. 1, 1760 at Piles Grove Meetinghouse in NJ to Elizabeth Groff, daughter of Garrit Groff. She was born 1 mo. 17, 1740 in Salem NJ, and died 10 mo. 20, 1786 in Evesham NJ. Samuel Ballinger was married second 5 mo. 14, 1788, to Mary (Corbet) Shinn, who was born 6 mo. 17, 1741; and died 17 Dec 1822 in Logan Co OH (or at Evesham NJ). Samuel Ballinger is listed in the 1820 census of Zane Twp., Logan Co OH, p. 80A. Note that the Inskeep genealogy states that the Evesham Monthly Meeting records indicate that they were buried in New Jersey, and perhaps died there, not in Ohio. It would therefore be Samuel Jr in the Ohio census. However, we will leave this paragraph in the article since most of the children became early settlers of Ohio.
