Solomon Balch, from New Boston, N. H., emigrated to this town among the early settlers, and located on road 18, upon the farm now occupied by Mrs. J. A. Balch. Mr. Balch held a prominent position among his townsmen, whom he served in many official positions, among which that of justice of the peace, which office he held for a period of over thirty years. Enos C., grandson of Solomon, and only son of Solomon, Jr., now resides on Railroad street. Robert, the oldest son of Solomon, born in 1804, held many of the town offices, and died in 1874.
