Ingram Family


June 2012, September 2012:
I have "reorganized" my original Ingram family information page which had grown over time and had become unwieldy and confusing. I created separate pages for: Descendants of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1799/1801VA) and Ann Stewart (est1742-) of Montgomery (now Pulaski Co., Virginia) (my line), Other Ingram names - Montgomery/Pulaski Co. Virginia Other Ingram lines - Missouri and Illinois and selected Other Ingram lines - mostly Virginia. The reorganization is incomplete, is still a little rough and there will be some duplication across these pages, but for now it will have to do.


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.

Ingram Books

The only printed Ingram surname books and family histories I am aware of are the following. However, this list was prepared a long time ago, ca. 1997. It also does not include other historical books where Ingram's may have been mentioned. Further books and histories may have been written as well as all the information available on the internet, particularly family trees. Any of these sources may contain errors, so should be used with some skepticism.

Revolutionary War Patriots

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.


The DAR in the past printed volumes of the patriots that have been used to support membership applications. That information has been put on the web in a database searchable for free by the public. See DAR Note that neither the printed volumes nor the database list ALL patriots who served; only those proven for membership. Also, the DAR has become much more rigorous in proof requirements, so some individuals are no longer accepted and either their service was disproven (often identification confusion) or may need to be re-proven.

Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files

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.
