When Elizabeth Mills (couldn't write) was originally named as guardian of
Robert (6) and Samuel (4), Levi Ball was one of the sureties. (Worcester Co. F.
495, Aug 1788)

6 Jun 1797, F. 4. Robert Mills (of Robert), over 14, chose Gillett Mills as
his guardian.

The August 8 1807/12 May 1809 will of Elizabeth Ball mentions sons Samuel
and Gillett.

To me, this makes a good case for Elizabeth Mills, widow of Robert (who
apparently died intestate) to have married Levi Ball.

Levi also died intestate, leaving a widow Elizabeth and sons Christopher,
John, Samuel and Levi (she may or may not have been their mother), and admin
was granted to Christopher (8 Aug 1807).

Of course, since they all seem to have had the same names, who could know
which Levi married which Elizabeth?

(not one of them)
