This page will be a general information page about some Ingram resources. Be forewarned that there were a LOT of Ingram's in early Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, etc. who are not known to be related. These Ingram's have been very illusive to track down and sort out. Many researchers have been looking at them for decades and and continue to look into them. Unfortunately, many people have mixed them up severely and that erroneous information has been widely propogated on the internet.
Jonas Ingram (abt1775/1780-aft1807) who married Melinda Butler was son of Jonathan (est1760-1830/1840) and grandson of Samuel (1730/40-1799/1801). This book is primarily a very extensive documentation of descendants of Jonas and Melinda. The first section (pages 1-48) begins with some descendants of Samuel (1730/40-1799/1801) and has a lot of detail information about the first two generations of Ingram's.
Order copies directly from the author. Available through Interlibrary Loan (MAR 2000 from University of Southern Florida).
This book contains a variety of data from the 1700's and 1800's for all Ingram lines from the southeast states, including Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and a few others. Includes early Virginia land records, marriages, military records, wills and census records. Does not have in-depth Ingram family geneaologies, but there is a section of brief "Family Charts". The various data may not be complete for any particular jurisduction; i.e. marriages are listed for various counties in various states, but there may be Ingram data in counties not listed. Does not give underlying sources.
Because it is organized by record type and does not generally identify genealogical connections, it is up to the reader to go through it all and determine applicability to his line. I did not spend a lot of time with this and found only one brief reference to Samuel Ingram and descendants on page 174, as a Family Chart. It does not include Samuel's will.
A number of years ago, someone selling a copy posted a helpful list of its contents:
Origin of Ingram Name - English Background (this chapter gives a tremendous amount of English Ingram information and passenger records.)
Seventeenth Century Ingram Colonists -( These are the earliest Ingram records to be found in America, beginning in 1642 - there are transcriptions from patent books, county record books, wills, deeds, early militia references, etc.)
Counties and Parish Records of Colonial Virginia ( contains county evolution, Parishes in Virginia as of June 30, 1680, information on Ingram Parish in Northumberland County, newly created counties, those listed in the parish records who cared for the orphans and poor and infirm, processioned the land, etc.)
Maps of Virginia Counties (This includes a map of the colony of Virginia; early settlements and principal Indian towns along the James River, a contemporary map of the diocese of Southern Virginia; county ma[s showing the parishes, waterways, adjacent counties, etc. for the following Virginia Counties: James City, York, Accomack, Princess Anne, Norfolk, Nansamond, Southampton, Greensville, Brunswick-Additions from Isle of Wight & Surry, Dinwiddie, Brunswick, and Mecklenburg Counties.)
Virginia Land Records: (References from the Virginia State Archives for Ingram land records, giving the name, date, county, number of acres, waterway, and Patent Number. If that weren't enough, there is a county bny county listing of the Ingram land records and indentures transcribed from the actual deeds & giving most if the information to be found in the deeds; Then there are the Personal Property Tax Records, by county, district and person giving the number of tithes, persons, horses, cattle and the tax, and some individual district tax records.)
Ingram Marriages (Just exactly what it says - by county in Virginia, giving names and dates, parents if under age, sureties, minister, and witnesses. The amount of information varies by county. Then you have the same in formation for Noprth Carolina, by county, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas - all by counties.)
Ingram Military Records (these are done in alphabetical order by given name for a number of states, giving rank, company and unit.Some birth and death dates are given where taken from pension information.)
Miscellaneous Eighteenth Century Records (These are virtually complete transcriptions and cover a wealth of subject.)
Ingram Wills (These begin in 1669 with some early will transcriptions, than those in the 1700s are given by county in chronological order. These include inventories, sales, and other probate records, for a number of states.)
Census Records ( these also include Virginia Records of Taxpayers from 1782-1787, showing the county of residence and the number of slaves owned. Then follows the 1790 census for every state giving the given names of the Ingrams fround and their county and continues through 1850 for some states. There are actual enumerations taken from the 1850 census for some Ingrams.)
Miscellaneous General Records (This covers Georgia land grants, tax digests for Georgia and additional Georgia records. Then we move on to Alabama, Texas, and Kentucky)
Family Charts (These give lineages and family groups as submitted by others, and should be double checked for accuracy (as one should always do!).
Ingram Researchers and Ancestral Connections (Gives names, addresses, and lineages to enble you to contact others working your lines.)

"The book chronicles direct and related families: including the first immigrants to Virginia (JOHN INGRAM ca. 1651 Northumberland County, VA), later settlement in Pulaski County, Kentucky (ISAAC INGRAM ca. 1788), then on to Polk County, Missouri (JOSEPH INGRAM ca. 1835 by way of Illinois) and finally to an area south of Baker, Montana (JOSEPH PRICE INGRAM ca. 1913)."
In 2003 the author's son prepared a CD containing this book and is selling at nominal cost at his web page (still up April 2010) at: MY INGRAM FAMILY, 1651-1925He reports library copies are available: "From my mother's records, she donated copies of the hard cover book to the following organizations:

Multiple sources exist where an ancestor may be recorded or traced in service to the Revolutionary War. Be aware that "service" may include activities other than as a muskett-totin' member of a militia company such as providing supplies, for which a person was paid. These sources are extensive, varied and widespread so cannot be covered here. A few notes may be added as I come across them, but if it's not on this website I have no further information.
Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files; White, Virgil D.; National Historical Publishing Company; June 1993: "Selected records from the Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant application files" NARA M805.
This source is particularly useful because Revolutionary War pension applications and their full files (beyond these brief abstracts) often contain substantial information about the applicant. A copy of the files may be ordered from NARA or, I believe, those files may have been posted online.
