Ingram Family

Descendants of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1799/1801VA) and Ann Stewart (est1742-)

Following are only very brief, basic notes and not a complete, well-organized narrative of this family. Further, a lot of the "information" that exists about the family is reported in various places without any primary source citation, particularly from the dreaded Ancestral File. Michelle Thomas' website (below) does include some important primary and secondary source citations.

This page will be primarily concerned about the earliest known ancestor Samuel Ingram (est 1730-1801) and his son Jonathan (est 1760-1830/1840) who migrated to Pike County, Missouri, though some other issues are addressed as well.

The earliest record we have for our Ingram family is Samuel Ingram; born estimated 1730 died 1799/1801 at Montgomery Co., Virginia (will); married est 1760 to Ann Stewart. Ten children, descendants (Ingram) in Virginia and to Logan County, Kentucky; Wayne County, Kentucky and Pike/Lincoln Counties in Missouri (my line). He had a son Samuel, so he is precisely identified as Samuel, Sr. and it is important to ensure correctly distinguishing between father and son.

Samuel Sr.'s birth year is unknown and 1730 is an estimate, probably correct within a range of five years. We do not have record of his marriage to Ann Stewart or birth years of his oldest children, so do not have that information to guide. His death is between the 17 January 1799 signing of his will and its August 1801 probate. (Transcript later on this page.) He would have been age late 60's or 70. The various publications show his date of death as 1799/1801 or just 1801. Wills were typically probated reasonably expediciously, allowing for availability of a judge and court session, so he most likely died in 1801, but that date is not absolutely proven. The location of death and burial is presumed Mongtomery County, Virginia. Note that Pulaski Co. Virginia was formed in 1839 from parts of the original Montgomery County which includes the part of the Montgomery County where our Ingram family lived which is reportedly in the area of present-day (2011) Newbern/Newburn. Some records for these Ingram's may be shown in Pulaski Co. Some modern descriptions (family trees, narratives, etc.) may incorrectly state pre-1839 events as having occurred in Pulaski County which did not exist, instead of the correct Montgomery County.

There were a LOT of contemporaneous Ingram's in Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, etc. who are not known to be related. These Ingram's have been very illusive to track down and many researchers have been and are looking into them. Many people have also mixed them up severely and have posted that erroneous information on the internet.

My line of Ingram's went to Lincoln and Pike Counties in Missouri (ca. 1830), which is the focus of this page. There were two additional contemporaneous Ingram lines in the areas of Pike County, Missouri and Pike County, Illinois that are not known to be related. These two counties are across the Mississippi River from each other. The "other" Missouri line in Pike County was that descended from Stephen Ingram (1786-1853). The Illinois line was descended from Isom L. Ingram (1822-1878) born Smith County, Tennessee; s/o Joshua P. Ingram (1802-1879).

Samuel Ingram Parents and Origin

No direct or meaningful circumstantial evidence of origin or of the parents of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1799/1801) has been found. Despite this total lack of any evidence, nevermind any convincing proof, various unsupported claims of his parents have been posted on the internet as fact. These claims contradict each other and appear to be only based on the existence of a "Samuel Ingram" around the time period and wishful thinking. It is also unknown whether Samuel was born in America or, as some have speculated, was born elsewhere and immigrated. The speculation usually mentions England, but just offhand I wonder if Canada may be a possibility. For discussion of various theories see: Issue: Samuel Ingram Parents.

We only only for certain that "our" Samuel was first recorded in 1767 in Montgomery County, Virginia; that is the first known record.

Samuel Ingram

       Samuel Ingram, Sr. first appeared on the waters of New River in 1767 when he settled on a tract of 300 acres of land on Bullock Pen Branch near the present town of Newbern. In 1769 he purchased the John Miller-John Strupe tract of land on Peak Creek, and in addition had a tract of 209 acres on Sinking Spring "by ye Great road" surveyed by William Preston for the Loyal Company. This tract was held jointly with Adam Waggoner. Two days later, on March 18, 1769, a survey was made for Ingram alone for a tract of 210 acres on Peak Creek, adjoining James Walker. The grant for the 300 acres was received in 1785. Beginning with this 300 acres Ingram built up his plantation by adding three additional tracts, finalizing the total in an inclusive survey of 634 acres in the year 1796. The grant was received the next year (Botetourt County Deed Book 1, p. 16; Commissioner's Certificates, p. 34; Montgomery County Survey Book E, p. 228; Preston Family Papers, Library of Congress, 581; Land Grant Books O, p. 182; 36, p. 414).
       In 1770 Samuel Ingram was granted permission to build his mill and a jury was appointed to adjudge damages and report. His mill was one of the earliest in the area. In 1771 Ingram acted as a surveyor of a road from Ingles' to Peak Creek, and in 1776 was overseer of the road from Sinking Spring to Peak Creek. In 1774 the Montgomery County Court ordered that it be certified to the Governor of Virginia that Samuel Ingram had produced 1.600 pounds of "neat winter rotted hemp" (Summers, Annals, pp. 74, 123, 621, 648).
       In the summer of 1774 when there was so much trouble with the Indians, the Ingrams were among the families who chose to remain at home while other neighbors went to a nearby fort. In 1775 Samuel produced in coun an account of his expense in taking up his servant man, Thomas Walsh, when he ran away, and for the 26 days absent time. The court decided that Walsh was to serve his master one year and five months for his expenses. and fifty-two days for the twenty-six absent days, after his present time of indenture otherwise expired (Preston Papers, Draper Mss., 3 QQ 54; Summers, Annals. p. 643).
       In 1775 Ingram purchased 80 acres formerly belonging to Frederick Shore. In 1780 he served on a jury and he was one of the appraisers of the estate of Eloner Snodgrass in 1793. Ingram sold tracts of land to Robert Curtin in 1784, to Adam Fiance in 1787, and to Jonathan Ingram in 1796 (Summers, Annals, pp. 646, 743, 835, 915, 919, 928; Montgomery County Deed Books A, pp. 329, 476; B, p. 257).
       In 1780 Samuel Ingram and his sons Jonathan and James were tried for being Loyalists. Samuel was found guilty and was ordered to the Augusta jail for further trial. but the two sons volunteered to enlist in the American army until December 31, 1781 (Preston Papers, Draper Mss., 5 QQ 68-72, 73-79). James Ingram must have been somewhat of a prankster, for he and John Reins were summoned to appear for "raising a false rumour and putting some of the inhabitants of the County into fear." The in- formation filed with the summons indicated that Reins and Ingram had just returned from duty on the frontier and in one place hung a blanket to a treetop and set a hat on it and remained by the roadside with guns ready to fire, and in one instance did fire their guns and hallooed like Indians in the night thus alarming the inhabitants. Captain Joseph Cloyd and Robert Evans were called as witnesses (Montgomery County Loose Papers, April 1779, Virginia State Library, Archives).
       For the purpose of evidence in a lawsuit, Samuel Ingram, Sr. v. James McCorkle and Daniel Trigg, David Crouch filed a deposition of interest on May 30, 1789. He stated that in 1779 he was at the house of Samuel Ingram, Sr., when Ingram asked him to go to his smokehouse and "drink a dram;" once there Ingram lifted up "something like a bee gum and took out a large bundle of counterfeit paper money" and asked Crouch what he thought of it. When asked what he intended to do with it. Ingram stated he planned to take a cart with some skins and furs and go "towards the North-
(305)
ward and try to traffic it off for something or other." Crouch advised him not to do that or he would be hanged and bring his family to scandal, but Ingrain replied "it was as good as any, for it was all good for nothing." Crouch stated that the money was made on Ingram's plantation and there appeared to he several more bundles of the same kind shown to him. Crouch heard that Ingram had passed some of the money to James Millar and when Sheriff Bell came, the money was returned. The money Ingram received in payment for land he sold to Captain James McCorkle, he offered to pass to Colonel William Ingles who disputed taking it hut finally accepted it as payment for the round glade tract of land that Colonel Ingles had sold Ingram some years before the Revolution. The money was paid to Ingles at Crockett's blacksmith shop (Montgomery County Loose Papers, Virginia State Library, Archives).
       Samuel Ingram, Sr., wrote his will on January 17, 1799, and it was recorded in August 1801 (Montgomery County Will Book 1, p. 114). He devised to his two sons Aaron and William all his lands, and Aaron was to pay his brother Samuel L100. William was to support his mother, whose name was Ann, and he was to have the dwelling house. In addition to her support William was to pay his mother L100. Three sons, John, William. and Aaron, were to act as executors.
       The appraisal of the estate was done on August 26, 1801, the total appraised value being $1,736.53 (Montgomery County Will Book 1. p. 118). Among the items listed in the will book were the following selected items: 22 cows, calves, and steers; one bull, 9 hogs, 13 sheep, 4 horses, a wagon and gears for four horses, plowirons, crosscut saw, handsaw, augers, pitchforks, foot adze, drawing knife, clevis, scythes, quarrying sledge, falling axes, mattocks, hoes, a frying pan, steelyards, 4 beds, 2 flatirons, a "lanthorn," coffee mill, 2 coffeepots, 2 pint cups of tin, a stone "jugg," a pair of gold scales, a jackscrew, a chest, a check reel, a big wheel, 4 chairs, saddle, bridle and "sircingle" [girth], iron kettle, a washing tub, a grindstone, a loom, 3 Dutch ovens, 3 pair of pot hooks, a large skillet, 2 pots, a pair "truckle" wheels, a set of harrow teeth, pewter, 2 tables, pot racks, 6 piggins, 2 coolers, a bread tray, and 7 Negroes ranging in value from $100 to $300.
       Jonathan Ingram, son of Samuel, Sr. is said to have married Barbara Manifee; James Ingram married Rhoda Manifee (1785); John Ingram married Rachel Davis (1789); Samuel Ingram married Elizabeth McDonald (1785); Aaron Ingram married Mary Litner (Letner) in 1795; William Ingram married Mary Currin, 1799. Jemima Ingram, daughter of Samuel, Sr., married Nimrod Manifee (1788); Mary Ingram married Samuel Cecil (1792). Some of the Ingrams and Manifees moved to Kentucky and Missouri (Ingram family records; Marriages of Montgomery County).
       William Ingram remained in the Newbern vicinity and died there about 1808. In 1829 two of his children, James of Montgomery County, and Ann and her husband Annanias Davidson of Rockingham County, sold their shares of 407 acres which was William's estate, to Robert C. Ingram. This tract was on the main road, one mile west of Newbern. In 1834 Robert Ingram sold the land to John and David Glendy of Augusta County (Montgomery County Will Book 1, p. 379; Montgomery County Deed Books K, p. 359; L, p 206). Jemima Ingram, daughter of William, married Andrew Boyd in 1818 (Mongromery County Marriages).
       Aaron Ingram also remained in the Newbern vicinity, and in 1835 sold the land where he then resided to his son Samuel Ingram, Jr. The land adjoined the Glendys, James Wall and Henry Hance. Samuel Ingram and his wife Margaret sold 280 acres of this land to James and Simeon Bryson in the 1840's (Montgomery County Deed Book L, p. 420; Pulaski County Deed Book 2, p. 34).
       In 1839 the estate of Aaron Ingram was appraised and a sale made. In settling up the estate, numerous deeds were made as the result of a lawsuit in which Reazin Ver- million was plaintiff and Aaron Ingram and Samuel Early were defendants. From these transfers made during the 1840's the following have been designated as heirs of Aaron Ingram: Jemima wife of James Fergus of Rives County, Missouri, Juliet wife of William
(306)
Devor, Matilda wife of James Raines, Catherine (Katherine) wife of Jacob Woolwine, Mary wife of Richard McDonald of Logan County, Virginia (now West Virginia), Rhoda wife of William Patterson, Rebecca wife of Samuel Early, Samuel, Robert, and Nimrod. It appears that Nimrod Ingram died during the proceedings and some of his heirs, Samuel H., Robert R. [,] Jonathan G. and Henry, all of Jefferson County, Illinois, released their interests in their father's share of lands (Pulaski County Deed Books 1, pp. 72, 87, 94, 151, 210, 212, 224, 226, 445, 530, 584, 585; 2, pp. 111, 330, 545, 584; Mont- gomery County Marriages).

Samuel Ingram Children

Samuel apparently fathered ten children. They were (uncertain order): Rachel, Samuel, John, Jonathan, James, Nancy, William, Jemima Minerva, Mary "Polly" and Aaron. In most cases, birth and/or death dates are unknown and where shown may be estimates or guesstimates. They may have been based on some underlying record, but the citations are not provided. These children and at least some further descendants are apparently known except for Rachel.

Samuel's will was dated 17 January 1799 and probated in Montgomery County, Virginia August 1801. (Transcript later on this page.) However, it does not name all of his children and leaves ambiguities. He only names one daughter, Rachel, to whom he leaves ten pounds. The rest of the estate is to be divided among nine children: six sons and three daughters. The language leaves the impression that Rachel is not among those three daughters and is, for some reason, disinherited. "... I do allow to be equally divided among my children all except Reachel, who I do give ten pounds to be paid by my executors. The remainder, I desire to be equally divided among my six sons and three daughters so as each shall have one ninth part." It is not known (by me) if the records of estate distribution have been examined; if not, they should be. No daughters other than Rachel are named explicitly, but the other three daughters are reportedly Nancy who married Zacariah Cecil, Jemima Minerva who married Nimrod Perry Menefee and Mary "Polly" who married Samuel White Cecil, Jr. The six sons are mentioned as a group, and only Samuel, John, Aaron and William are explicitly named elsewhere in the will. Other records separately identify and name Jonathan and James as sons: Samuel Sr's trial for being a Loyalist. Transcriptions follow later on this page. Some of the children are recorded in subsequent records, including marriage (I have only seen indexes).

I have researched and found evidence of the birth years of only two of these children. Both survived to be included in the 1850 census as well as a gravestone for one of them. Any reports of birth years of the other children should be presumed as rough estimates only.

Samuel's children were as follows, but ...

Children are:
  1. Rachel (poss.1754-poss.1840)- See following Issue: Rachel Ingram.
  2. Samuel Ingram (Junior), born ESTIMATED 1759; died REPORTED 1801 at Wayne County, Kentucky; married 9 December 1785 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Elizabeth Ogle McDonald (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999). She was born REPORTED 1768 at Botetourt County, Virginia; died REPORTED 7 February 1871 at Washington County, Kentucky. She married REPORTED second 17 June 1806 at Washington County, Kentucky to a John Springer. Offhand, I wonder if Samuel Junior's reported death year of 1801 was entered as such because of his inclusion in his father's will and the consequent reporting of Samuel Senior's death year as 1801. The will was signed in 1799, so we do know that Junior was still living in that year.

  3. Jonathan Ingram, born ESTIMATED 1760; died PRESUMED 1830/1840 at PRESUMED Pike County, Missouri; married ESTIMATED 1784 at POSSIBLY Culpeper County, Virginia to Barbara Menefee. She born ESTIMATED 1760/1762 in presumed Virginia; died REPORTED 1820 at Logan or Simpson County, Kentucky. Jonathan appeared in the 1830 census in Pike County, Missouri and was not found in the 1840 census. More following Jonathan Ingram line.

  4. James Ingram, born 26 June 1761 at Montgomery County, Virginia; died 1 August 1854 at Wayne County, Kentucky; buried at Coffey-Ingram Cemetery (Elks Springs Valley (now Oil Valley)), Wayne County, Kentucky; married 17 October 1785 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Rhoda (Roda) Clark Menefee. (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999 gives marriage date of 17 Dec 1785 (may be bond). Some publications give marriage date 22 DEC 1785 in Montgomery Co., VA by Rev. Richard Witt; bondsman was Nimrod Menifee; UNCITED. ) James' dates match his gravestone which photo is online at Findagrave.com - Memorial# 69423060. She born PRESUMED 1761 in Virginia daughter of Gerrard or Jarrett Menefee and Agnes Sutherland; died 21 July 1850 at Wayne County, Kentucky; buried at Coffey-Ingram Cemetery (Elks Springs Valley (now Oil Valley)), Wayne County, Kentucky. Her record (no gravestone photo) online at Findagrave.com - Memorial# 69423664. James Ingram is found at age 87 alone in the 1850 census in Wayne County, Kentucky. (US Census 1850 - Kentucky - Wayne Co. - Division No 1 - Page 318 (stamped) Enumerated 31st day of August 1850; pilot.familysearch.org, accessed 23 October 2010)

    
    41 506 506 James Ingram V.  87 M Farmer  700 Virginia
    41* Middle initial clearly written but difficult to interpret;
        most likely a "V". Age 87 calculates to birth year 1762/3.
    
    
    Note the enumeration date 31 August 1850, which fits with a a death date of 21 July 1850. His middle name has been REPORTED as "Perkins" but that is probably James Perkins Ingram (1849-1925)

    I am presuming when the the stated birth year 1761 of Rhoda (Roda) Clark Menefee was carved on her gravestone, that someone knew about when she was born or what her age was but did not know the month or day.

  5. Nancy Ingram, born ESTIMATED 1762; died REPORTED 1823 at Piqua, Shelby County, Ohio; married REPORTED 24 October 1762 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Zachariah Cecil. He born REPORTED 1758 at Cecil County, Maryland; died REPORTED 20 August 1823 at Washington Township, Shelby County, Ohio; buried REPORTED Carey Cemetery, Shelby County, Ohio. He listed at findagrave.com Memorial# 19275372; born 1750; died Aug. 20, 1823; buried at Carey Cemetery. However, no photo of gravestone and no assurance the entry was from a gravestone reading. Also, 1758 could be misread as 1750 since '8's are prone to weathering.

  6. William Ingram, born ESTIMATED 1764; died REPORTED BEFore 1808; buried PRESUMED LaRue-Ingram Cemetery (Newbern), Pulaski County, Virginia. He married 18 February 1799 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Mary Currin (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999, may be bond date). She buried PRESUMED LaRue-Ingram Cemetery (Newbern),Pulaski County, Virginia.

    Family legend that this William died in 1807 on a trek with Daniel Boone. However, it appears this William died in Virginia. An alternate theory is that the possible Ingram that died on a trek with Daniel Boone was Jonas Ingram, son of Jonathan. This could make some sense in that Daniel Boone eventually retired to St. Charles County, Missouri which is one county south of Pike County, separated by Lincoln County. I have suspected that Daniel Boone may have had something to do with migrations from Kentucky to Lincoln and Pike Counties. One website says born 1764 in Radford, Montgomery Co., VA; died 1808 in Newberg (Newbern?), Virginia - all doubtful.

  7. John Robert Ingram, born REPORTED 1768; died REPORTED About 1807; married 12 December 1789 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Rachel Davis (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999; may be bond date). She born REPORTED 1770; no further information.

  8. Jemima Minerva Ingram, born CALCULATED 1771/1772 in Virginia; died After 1850 OF Tishimingo County, Mississippi; married 12 October 1788 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Nimrod Perry Menefee (Virginia Marriages to 1800 (via Ancestry.com) "Ingram, Jemima married Menifee, Nimrod on Oct 12 1788 in Montgomery County, Virginia"; may be bond date). He born ESTIMATED 1755/1765 son of Gerrard or Jarrett Menefee and Agnes Sutherland; died Before 1850. Jemima Menifee at age 78 listed in "US Census 1850 - Mississippi - Tishomingo Co. - 4 District Northern Division - Page 9 (stamped)" with her daughter Emily Menifee Owens and two grandchildren.

  9. Mary "Polly" Ingram, born REPORTED About 1773; married 24 October 1792 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Samuel White Cecil, Junior (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999 ("Cecil, Samuel / Ingram, Mary Oct 24 1792 [Montgomery Co. VA]"; may be bond date); died unknown and unreported. He was born REPORTED 23 January 1769 at (reported) Pulaski County, Virginia son of Samuel W. Cecil (1719-1786) and Rebecca White Cecil (1723-1815); died REPORTED 1834 in Missouri.

  10. Aaron Ingram, born REPORTED 1775; died REPORTED 1839 PRESUMED Montgomery County, Virginia; buried PRESUMED LaRue-Ingram Cemetery, Newbern, Montgomery (now Pulaski) County, Virginia; married 4 November 1795 at Montgomery County, Virginia to Mary Litner (Virginia Marriages to 1800 via Ancestry.com 08 OCT 1999; may be bond date) . She born ESTIMATED 1777; died unknown and unreported; buried LaRue-Ingram Cemetery, Newbern, Montgomery (now Pulaski) County, Virginia (see following re: LaRue-Ingram Cemetery).

A Nimrod Ingram has sometimes been reported as a son of Samuel and Ann. A Nimrod Ingram was not named in Samuel Ingram's will and I have seen no actual evidence of the existence of a son named Nimrod. The Nimrod in 1820/1830 censuses sometimes shown as son of Samuel was probably the Nimrod who was son of James or Aaron.

Descendants of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1799/1801VA) and Ann Stewart (est1742-) shows a 5-generation descendants chart generated from the Ingram data I have collected so far. This chart does not include any children and descendants of Rachel Ingram (Johnson?) since her destiny is so uncertain. The children and descendants of John/John Robert Ingram (1768-abt1807) are included separately at the end since I have not entered that data. (One of these days.) They had been shown on an unattributed website that disappeared ca. 2008 but has been archived at: Wayback Machine - "Ingram Genealogy Page". It appears the original information was provided by one Krys Douglas.

LaRue-Ingram Cemetery

From Charles M. Ingrum, Jr., an eighth generation descendant of Samuel Ingram through Jonathan. email 08 March 2009:
"I found the Ingram cemetery in Newburn, Virginia. I guess I'm the only person to do so. I found Samuel's land record, and traced the NE/SE calls on the deed to map it out to the dimensions of a topographical map of the area. There's only one cemetery in the middle of it. It's the "LaRue family cemetery". The LaRue's bought the Ingram property in the mid-1800's, and there are plenty of LaRue's buried there. To the side, there were some old stones piled up, and I went through them and found pieces of tombstones. I took some shaving cream and with a straight edge piece of cardboard scraped across the stones to reveal Ingram names. Again I don't have my notes or pictures handy, but did find Andrew Boyd, Mary Ingram - wife of Aaron Ingram (as it said on the stone), as well as a few others, but no Samuel Ingram. In the center of the cemetery are three identical stones still upright, but you can't read them. One appears to be William Ingram. But the other two were impossible to read."

Revolutionary War Involvement

Samuel Ingram (Sr.) was tried for being a Loyalist, being amongst a number of individuals accused of "misbehavior and treason" in proceedings in August 1780 of Montgomery and Botetourt Counties. I do not have citation of the original court records, but the involved individuals are reported in the Draper MSS 5QQ73-79. Samuel was sentenced for further trial in Augusta, but Jonathan and James agreed to serve in the American Army until December 31, 1781.

However, despite Samuel's initial Loyalist accusations, he is recorded in the DAR database as ancestor number A060259. His service as described in the DAR record as: "WOUNDED IN BATTLE 1777; OVERSEER OF ROADS & JUROR; TOOK OATH OF ALLEGIANCE 1777"; his "Rank(s): SOLDIER, CIVIL SERVICE, PATRIOTIC SERVICE" and "Service Source: JOURNAL OF HOUSE OF DELEGATES, OCT 1778, P. 21; KEGLEY, EARLY ADVENTURE ON THE WESTERN WATERS, VOL. 1, P. 150; SUMMERS, ANNUALS OF SW VA, VOL. 1, P. 648, 734" However, those dates of 1777 and 1778 seem inconsistent with his subsequently being tried as a Loyalist in August of 1780. Possibly it was another Samuel Ingram in those records. As of today (August, 2012) I have only seen the entry for the Journal of House of Delegates which may or may not be Samuel of Montgomery County (transcribed, later). The citations listings shown in the DAR are a little skimpy and are elaborated upon further, later.

Jonathan is not listed in the DAR printed patriot indices or the DAR's online Genealogy Research System. James is listed in the GRS (Ancestor A060178):
Continental Army: 8-1780 - 12-31-1781
But the DAR only lists individuals who have been used to obtain membership. The following has been reported:

"In 1774, he [Jonathan Ingram] served a total of 130 days in the Fincastle County militia under Captains Walter Crockat and James Robertson. Subsequently, during the Revolution, he served under Captain Abraham Trigg in the militia of Montgomery County (which was created from Fincastle County in 1777). As noted above, he seems also to have served in the Continental Army under Colonel Preston about 1781. [Would probably have been 8-1780 to 12-31-1781.] He appears to have owned property (340 acres) in Montgomery County as early as 1796 or 1797, and perhaps as early as 1789, Although the 1790 Census indicates that Jonathan was in Logan Co., KY at that time."
A roster reconstructed from pay lists for Lord Dunmore's War, 1774, Montgomery County, Virginia, lists Jonathan Ingram serving 108 days in Capt. Walter Crockett's Company. The reporting website does not show a source citation for the underlying pay lists. There may be another list, probably "Robertson" that may account for 22 more days. Also Trigg rolls would need to be checked, if such exist. Jonathan's service for the 1780-1781 period is contradicted. It is reported that Jonathan employed a substitute for the 1780-1781 service obligation. Draper MSS 5QQ72 extract indicates he employed a substitute. However, it is also reported that he was serving in Capt. Abraham Trigg's Montgomery County Militia April 1781. (Virginia Military Records; ...; page 225; GPC, Baltimore; reprint 2000, 2007; accessed via Google Books, full biblio. ref. obscured) There are likely more rolls in existence that may not show up on an internet search. (This trial is one place where sons Jonathan and James were named; Jonathan and James are not named explicitly in will but completed the headcount number of sons stated in the will.)

The Draper documents for that trial may clarify the situation and need to be checked. Record details see: Ingram Revolutionary Records.

Wayne County, Kentucky: Cemeteries

Three sons of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1801) migrated to Wayne County, Kentucky: Samuel Jr. (est1759-rep1801), Jonathan (est1760-1830/1840) and James (1761-1854). Jonathan moved on to Pike County, Missouri while Samuel and James remained along with at least some of their children and descendants and rest in the local cemeteries. However, there seems to be a great deal of confusion and error regarding the precise names of those cemeteries among the various sources, particularly the online family trees. The two primary sources available for cemetery records are the Wayne County Cemeteries book published in the 1970's and the online user-supported database Findagrave.com. Another source is the GNIS but those listings, while sometimes helpful, are notoriously incomplete and often inaccurate vis a vis feature names. Most fortunately, the data from the cemeteries book has been posted online at: Wayne County, Kentucky Cemeteries ~ Online. It also includes detailed location descriptions and individual annotation notes. Figuring out how to navigate takes a bit of effort, but the information is there.

The cemeteries of interest to Ingram researchers are the following. I compared the Cemetery Book listings to the Findagrave.com website and assembled this list. It appears that "Ingram Cemetery" where used usually refers to the "Ingram - Vickery - Goddard" Cemetery. "Ingram Family Plot" in GNIS refers to the "Ingram, Nimrod" cemetery. The first name will be the one I use for the website and database.

  1. "Coffey - Ingram" Cemetery

    aka "Ingram-Coffey" Cemetery Elk Springs Valley, now Oil Valley.

    There are four cemeteries in Wayne County named "Coffey." Those, along with the page numbers from the Cemeteries book are: Coffey (pg. 597-600); Coffey (pg. 601); Coffey, Harden (pg. 602); and Coffey-Ingram (pg. 603-605). The subject of this section is the "Coffey-Ingram" cemetery. The local road sign refers to the latter as on "Ingram-Coffey Cemetery Road." Consequently, "Ingram-Coffey" may appear in some records and listings. Findagrave.com uses "Coffey-Ingram" which is apparently the preferred name. Various individual Ingram records give the name only as "Coffey" sometimes extended with description Oil Valley (was) and/or Elk Springs Valley (now) but it should be correctly cited as "Coffey-Ingram." Decimal equivalent of coordinates: 36.773056 -84.799444

  2. "Ingram - Vickery - Goddard" Cemetery

    From the Cemeteries book: "Ingram - Vickery - Goddard" Cemetery pages 617 - 620. aka "Ingram Cemetery" in Findagrave.com which has duplicate listings as "Ingram Cemetery" (87 interments) and "Ingram-Vickery-Goddard Cemetery" (1 interment). GNIS: "Ingram-Vickery-Goodard [sic] Cemetery", Feature ID: 494989 On Google Maps, it is identified as "Ingram Cemetery" on coordinates 36.811793, -84.809668 on State highway Ky-776 (south side) about 1/5 mile east of where it intersects with 92.

  3. "Ingram, Nimrod" Cemetery

    From the Cemeteries book: "Ingram, Nimrod" Cemetery pages 621 This appears to be GNIS "Ingram Family Plot" Feature ID: 2569963; Latitude: 36.8017099 Longitude: -84.785488. The DMS coordinates in the Cemetery book translate to decimal: 36.801667 -84.786111 However, the road names on the resulting map do not seem to match the narrative description in the following narrative, so there may be an error somewhere.

As of August 27, 2012 findagrave.com incorrectly shows three burials at the "Ingram Cemetery" (actually Ingram-Vickery-Goddard): Rhoda Clark Menifee Ingram (27539731), Samuel Ingram (27539076) and Elizabeth Parmley Ingram (27539150). They are actually buried at the Coffey-Ingram Cemetery and are included in Findagrave listings at that Cemetery: Rhoda Clark Menifee Ingram (69423664), Samuel Ingram (69423834) and Elizabeth Parmley Ingram (69423834).

Comments and Open Issues

The first Ingram that we have reliable data about is Samuel Ingram. Some early records are described at Michele Thomas' Web site.

As is unfortunately usual, there is erroneous and conflicting information on the internet about Samuel Ingram, purported ancestors and descendants. Some websites show substantial errors including totally erroneous lists of children for some families along with unsupported, contradictory claims of parents.

Jonathan Ingram line - Pike County, Missouri

Jonathan Ingram (est1760-1830/1840) and Barbara Menefee (est1762VA-1820)

Jonathan Ingram (est1760-1830/1840) was the son of Samuel Ingram (est1730-1799/1801) and Ann Stewart (est1842-?). Barbara Menefee (est1762VA-1820) was daughter of John Menefee (est1721-?) and Mildred Johnston (est1723VA-?). Jonathan appeared in the 1830 census in Pike County, Missouri (page 243) where his enumerated household included only one person, a male age 60-69. Jonathan's previously estimated birth year calculates to an age of about 70. The 1830 census in Pike County is listed in alphabetical order; preceding alphabetically is the household of Garret Ingram, Jonathan's son. The only related Ingram found in that county in the 1840 census was Jonathan's son Jarret Ingram (page 80) whose household's eldest members were one each male and female age 50-59. (Stephen and Elisha are from the "other" Ingram line.) Jonathan, consequently, is presumed deceased between 1830 and 1840 at Pike County. He may have been buried at the Ingram Cemetery in Pike County but no gravestone has been found. Barbara Menefee Ingram has been reported to have died in 1820 at Logan or Simpson County, Kentucky but I have not seen the evidence.

Children of Jonathan and Barbara (Mennefee) Ingram were Rhoda, Jonas, Samuel, Jarrot, James, Anna, Polly and Barsheba (Pioneer Families of Missouri, Bryan and Rose, 1935/1977, pg. 272).

Those descendants that went to Missouri lived in Pike, Lincoln, Warren and Montgomery Counties, all of which adjoin.

Jarrott Ingram (1787KY-1851MO) and Nancy Hudson (1790-1871MO).

Jarrott Ingram b. 15 OCT 1787 @ Logan Co. KY, d. 26 SEP 1851 @ Pike Co. MO marr. 30 JUN 1807 Logan Co. KY to Nancy Hudson, b. 28 May 1790, d. 20 OCT 1871 @ Pike Co. MO. Both buried Ingram Cemetery, Pike Co. MO. Jarrott was son of Jonathan Ingram (est1760-aft1830) and Barbara Mennefee (est1762-1820). Nancy was daughter of Isaac Hudson (1763NC-1848MO) and Mary "Polly" Shipper or Shepard (est1764-1836MO). Children of Jarrott and Nancy (Hudson) Ingram: were Polly, John, Barbara, Jonathan, Elizabeth Ann, Samuel, Nancy, Sally, William and Lucinda.

Ancestor connection: Barbara Ingram b. 1812 Logan Co. KY, d. 6 Sep 1881 Lincoln or Pike Co. MO, dau. of Jarrott Ingram and Nancy Hudson marr. 11 Oct 1836 @ Lincoln Co. MO to Josiah Wilson Park b. abt 1814 KY, d. cal abt 1858. Lincoln or Pike Co. MO.

Have more on these families to add later.

Other Ingram line - Pike County, Missouri

There was another Ingram line in Pike County, Missouri with no known relationship to Samuel Ingram. These were descendants of Stephen Ingram who was born 15 Jan 1786 in Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina; died 1853 in Cuivre Township, Pike County, Missouri. There is one family tree on the internet showing ancestors, but I have not seen any complete tree for family and descendants of Stephen. Census and other records in Pike County appear to provide complete data for this line. Most seemed to live in the Bowling Green area, some burials in Mt. Zion Cemetery. A couple may have strayed into Lincoln County. See Stephen Ingram (1786-1853).

Other Ingram line - Pike County, Illinois

There was yet another Ingram line in Pike County, Illinois with no known relationship to Samuel Ingram or to the Pike County, Missouri line. (Pike County, Illinois is directly across the Mississippi River from Pike County, Missouri.) These were descendants of Isom L. Ingram who was born 12 Jun 1822 in Smith County, Tennessee; died 31 Mar 1878 in Pike County, Illinois; s/o Joshua P. Ingram (1802-1879). This group may have lived around Pittsfield. Some family, ancestors and relatives were in Brown County, Illinois. See Isom L. Ingram (1822-1878). There were also other Ingram families in Pike County, Illinois that came from Tennessee, but whose relationship is likewise unknown. See Isom L. Ingram (1822-1878).

     a soldier, in the month of July, 1777, against the
     Indians, he received a wound in an engagement through the
     breast, in the curing of which he has been at great

       among others, being fired upon by a party of Indians, in

       sum of 40l. to reimburse him the expense of the doctor."

   The following has been reported:
     "In 1774, he [Jonathan Ingram] served a total of 130 days in the
      Fincastle County militia under Captains Walter Crockat and
      James Robertson. Subsequently, during the Revolution, he served
      under Captain Abraham Trigg in the militia of Montgomery County
      (which was created from Fincastle County in 1777). As noted above,
      he seems also to have served in the Continental Army under Colonel
      Preston about 1781. [Would probably have been 8-1780 to 12-31-1781.]
      He appears to have owned property (340 acres) in Montgomery County
      as early as 1796 or 1797, and perhaps as early as 1789, Although
      the 1790 Census indicates that Jonathan was in Logan Co., KY at
      that time."

   A roster reconstructed from pay lists for Lord Dunmore's War, 1774,
   Montgomery County, Virginia, lists Jonathan Ingram serving 108 days
   in Capt. Walter Crockett's Company. The reporting website does not show
   a source citation for the underlying pay lists. There may be another
   list, probably "Robertson" that may account for 22 more days. Also
   Trigg rolls would need to be checked, if such exist.
   Jonathan's service for the 1780-1781 period is contradicted. It is
   reported that Jonathan employed a substitute for the 1780-1781 service obligation.
   Draper MSS 5QQ72 extract indicates he employed a substitute.
   However, it is also reported that he was serving in Capt. Abraham
   Trigg's Montgomery County Militia April 1781. (Virginia Military
   Records; ...; page 225; GPC, Baltimore; reprint 2000, 2007; accessed
   via Google Books, full biblio. ref. obscured)

   There are likely more rolls in existence that may not show up on
   an internet search.

Ingram - Other Notes

=======================================================================

Note: Newbern (ska Newburn), Virginia in present-day Pulaski County.

=======================================================================

"I found the Ingram cemetery in Newburn, Virginia.  I guess I'm the only
person to do so.  I found Samuel's land record, and traced the NE/SE
calls on the deed to map it out to the dimensions of a topographical
map of the area.  There's only one cemetery in the middle of it.
It's the "LaRue family cemetery".  The LaRue's bought the Ingram property
in the mid-1800's, and there are plenty of LaRue's buried there.  To the
side, there were some old stones piled up, and I went through them and
found pieces of tombstones.  I took some shaving cream and
with a straight edge piece of cardboard scraped across the stones to
reveal Ingram names.  Again I don't have my notes or pictures handy,
but did find Andrew Boyd, Mary Ingram - wife of Aaron Ingram (as it
said on the stone), as well as a few others, but no Samuel Ingram.
In the center of the cemetery are three identical stones still upright,
but you can't read them.  One appears to be William Ingram.  But the
other two were impossible to read."

 Charles M. Ingrum, Jr., an eighth generation descendant of Samuel Ingram through Jonathan,
  email 08 March 2009.

=======================================================================
It appears that the above "LaRue" Cemetery is the same as the one otherwise known as the "Larew" Cemetery at Larew Cemetery - Hamblin register
=======================================================================




 The source that shows Samuel was the son
of John was a Will presented to the court on 28 Nov 1763 - Book 4, p 736.  I
got this info from the 'Ingram Family History,' by Mary Ruth Stultz p 170.
John Ingram, born circa 1690 died 1763 in the parish of Meherrin, Brunswick
County, VA.  John married Hannah Pines.  Children as named in his will:
1. Samuel
2. John
3. Joshua (Josh) deceased in 1763; son Jeremiah Ingram named in will.
4. James (given land on north side of the Meherrin joining that of George)
5. George (given 1,070 acres of land)
6. Jesse (given land in Granville County, NC) (see passports in GA)
7. Richard (given land in Lunenburg County)
8. Benjamin (land in Lunenburg County)
9. Joseph (received the manor plantation)
10. Elizabeth (daughter married a (?)Vaughn)
11. Tabitha (daughter married a (?)Gee)

That the above Samuel is "our" Samuel who died 1799/1801 at
Montgomery Co., VA is, INMHO, speculative.  Need more evidence.

FS-AF Reports children of a John Ingram (1709-1763) AFN: 163H-XJX
and Hannah Pines which includes a Samuel.  Some people contend this
Samuel was the one (i.e "our" Samuel) who m. Ann Stewart.  However,
the AF shows him as b. "Abt 1751 Brunswick, Virginia"
 and died 1764 - which conflicts with documented information about
 "our" Samuel.  But I don't have any information as to what the source
 of the claim that Samuel s/o John/Hannah was born abt 1751 and died
 in 1764 is.  The 1751 birth date could not be "our" Samuel
 who would have to have been born est 1730/40 for the downstream
 stuff to work out.


========================================================================

FS-Ancestral File gives Samuel Sr. INGRAM (AFN: WR2T-K3); Birth: 1740 ,Cecil,MD; Death: Aug 1801: Birth place of Cecil Co., Maryland.

Note Chester Co. PA neighbors Cecil Co. MD
 - poss. connection with fam. of Ephraim Johnson who m. Rachel Ingram who appeared to be disinherited.

This is NOT the Samuel Ingram born 1 Aug 1755 or 1765, son of John.  Disproven:
There was a Samuel Ingram R5484 NC Line who was in the Revolutionary War and whose Rev. War Pension Application ("Abstracts of Rev. War Pension Files") states he 1) was born 1 Aug 1765 at Southampton Co. VA, 2) lived in Columbia SC for 40 years, 3) in 183
3 moved to Montgomery Co. Alabama and 4) where he applied for pension 18 June 1835. ... This could NOT be "our" Samuel because "our" Samuel: 1) had children born ca. 1760 and 2) died about 1799/1801 @ Montgomery Co. VIRGINIA as proven by will which names
children.  (I have not been able to prove birth dates of any children of "our" Samuel, but their estimated dates of ca. 1760 fit with proven dates of "our" Samuel's grandchildren.)

========================================================================
--------------------------------------------------------------

AFN: WR2T-K3 Samuel Ingram

FS-AF online gives birth year as 1740 and loc. as Cecil Co.,MD.
This must be regarded as highly suspect.  No other proof of the
Cecil Co., MD connection known or found by me, although the 1740
birth year could fit.

There is a Samuel Ingram of Easton, Northampton Co. PA b. abt 1727
who m. Jane McCullock abt 1753 had dau. Rachel 1754.  FS-AF has
separate AF records which show this family and Rachel as marrying
Ephraim Johnson.  Do not know if there is a connection.

Relationship to Ebenezer Ingram who married 18 May 1785 at
Montgomery Co., Virginia to Hannah Johnson needs to be explored.
Based on Ebenezer's estimated birth year of 1763, he could have
been a nephew.  If he was a nephew, than info. from the "History
of Bell County, KY" by H. H. Fuson would seem to hint that Samuel
could be the son of Bill Ingram who came to Kentucky in 1800 from
North Carolina.

   * Name: Samuel INGRAM
   * Given Name: Samuel
   * Surname: Ingram
   * NSFX: Sr.
   * Sex: M
   * Title: Sr.
   * Note:

          Samuel & Anne apparently attempted to settle in the
          northwestern reaches of the Virginia colony but by as
          early as 1761, they had moved south to what was to
          become Montgomery County, Va. Samuel and Anne were in
          Hampshire Co. Va by 1766 when they sold 260 acres on
          Hughes Run in Hampshire Co., Va (Now W VA). This land
          was obtained in 1762 from Henry Oldacre and his wife
          Elinor. Samuel was Yeoman of Hampshire when he received
          the land.

          According to a book written by Mary B. Kegley, Samuel
          Ingram, Sr. first appeared on the waters of the New
          River in 1767 when he settled on a tract of 300 acres of
          land on Bullock Pen Branch near the
          present town of Newbern. In 1769 he purchased the John
          Miller-John Strupw tract of land on Peak Creek, and in
          addition had a tract of 209 acres on Sinking Spring "by
          ye Great road" surveyed by William Preston for the Loyal
          Company. This tract was held jointly with Adam Waggoner.
          Two days later, on March 18, 1769. a survey was made
          for Ingram alone for a tract of 210 acres on Peak Creek,
          adjoining James Walker. The grant for 300 acres was
          received in 1785. Beginning with this 300
          acres Ingram built up his plantation by adding three
          additional tract, finalizing the total in an inclusive
          survey of 634 acres in the year 1796. The grant was
          received the next year (Botetourt County Deed Book 1, p.
          16; Commissioner's Certificates p 34)

          In 1770 Samuel Ingram was granted permission to build
          his mill and a jury was appointed to adjudge damages and
          report. His mill was one of the earliest in the area. In
          1771 Ingram acted as a surveyor of aroad from Ingles'
          to Peak Creek, and in 1776 was overseer of the road from
          Sinking Spring to Peak Creek. In 1774 the Montgomery
          County Court ordered that it be certified to the
          Governor of Virginia that Samuel Ingram had produced
          1,600 pounds of "neat winter rotted hemp"

          In 1774 Samuel had been compensated for "sundries"
          supplied to the county militia about the same time (July
          1774) when he was one of the few families not to flee in
          panic during the Indian incursions of Lord Dunmore's
          War. Samuel and William Ingram served in the
          Revolutionary War as Privates in the Cherokee Expedition
          under Colonel William Christian in August, 1776. While a
          soldier fighting against the Indians, in an ambush,
          Samuel received a wound in his breast, whereby he was
          rendered incapable of getting a livelihood by labor and
          hath incurred considerable expense for a doctor's
          attendance, He stated "he ought to be allowed the sum of
          30 pounds for his present relief, together with hold pay
          as a soldier for the term of 4 years and alsothe sum of
          40 pounds to reimburse him the expense of a doctor".
          Samuel was appointed Overseer of Roads in Fincastle Co.
          Va. on 3 Sept 1776. Samuel's appointment reads "Samuel
          Ingram is appt'd overseer of therd. from the Sinking
          Spring to Peck Creek & that he with the usualhands keep
          the same in repair according to law"

          A newspaper announced in 1775 that Thomas Welsh, a
          21-year-old Irish servant, had run away from Samuel
          Ingram and Joseph Mears about nine miles from "English"
          (Ingles) Ferry on the New River in Fincastle County. In
          1775 Samuel produced in court an account of his expense
          to taking up his
          servant man, Thomas Walsh, when he ran away, and for
          the 26 days absent time. The court decided that Walsh
          was to serve his master one year and five months for his
          expenses, and fifty-two days for the twenty-six absent
          days, after his present time of indenture
          otherwise expired.

          Samuel and William Ingram are recorded as privates in
          an expedition carried out against the Cherokees under
          Colonel William Christian in August 1776. In 1784,
          Samuel and his wife Anne, both of Montgomery County,
          deeded 60 acres of forest on the New River to Robert
          Currin for 」300.3

          For the purpose of evidence in a lawsuit, Samuel
          Ingram, Sr. vs. James McCorkle and Daniel Trigg, David
          Crouch filed a deposition of interest on May 30, 1789.
          He stated that in 1779 he was at the house of Samuel
          Ingram, Sr., when Ingram asked him to go to his
          smokehouseand "drink a dram;" once there Ingram lifted
          up "something like a beegum and took out a large bundle
          of counterfeit paper money" and asked Crouch what he
          thought of it. When asked what he intended to do with
          it, Ingram stated he planned to take a cart with some
          skins and furs and go "towards the Northward and try to
          traffic it off for something or other." Crouch advised
          him not to do that or he would be hanged and bring his
          family to scandal, but Ingram replied "it was as good as
          any, for it was all good for nothing." Crouch stated
          that the money was made on Ingram's platation and there
          appeared to be several more bundles of the same kind
          shown to him. Crouch heard that Ingram had passed some
          of the money to James Millar and when Sheriff Bell came,
          the money was returned. The money Ingram received in
          payment for land he sold to Captain James McCorkle, he
          offered to pass to Colonel William Ingles who disputed
          taking it but fimally accepted it as payment for the
          round glade tract of land that Colonel Ingles at
          Crockett's blacksmith shop.

          Note: Fincastle Co was formed in 1772 from Botetourt
          Co, VA, but extinguished in 1777, desolving into
          Kentucky, Washington, and Montgomery Counties.
          Apparently the Ingrams were in that part of Montgomery
          Co. that was to become Pulaski Co (1839) neighboring
          Wythe Co (1790) for, in 1802, a road proposed between
          New Dublin (Dublin inpresent Pulaski Co) and
          Fortchiswell (Fort Chiswell in Wythe Co) passed through
          the lands of Aaron and William Ingram, who
          werecompensated $1,358.75; The New River (mentioned
          subsequently) runs right through Pulaski Co.

   * Birth: ABT 1730 in VA
   * Note: Several sources give his birthdate as 1740, but the earlier
     date is provided by Betty Anne Lively Erickson and supported by
     James Barry Bingham in his book "Descendants of Jonas Ingram and
     Melinda Butler". 14 15
   * Death: BET 1799 AND 1801 in Montgomery Co., VA
   * Note: Samuel signed and dated his last will and testament on 10
     January 1799, but he was still alive in February to consent to his
     daughter's marriage. Nonetheless, he died before Aug 1801, when
     his will was probated in Montgomery Co., Va. In his will, Samuel
     specifies 6 sons and 4 daughters, but did not name them all
     individually. His widow was Anne. He devised to his sons Aaron and
     William all his lands, and Aaron was to pay his brother Samuel
     $100 and William was to suppor this mother Ann, and he was to have
     the dwelling house. In addition William was to pay his mother
     $100. When his estate was appraised in August, Josiah Bailor (or
     Baker), Joseph (or John) Russell, and Guy S. Trigg valued it at
     $1,736.53, which included one "negro man Jim" ($300), one "negro
     boy Tom" ($300), one "negro boy Kned" ($120),another "negro boy
     Joe" ($100), one "female negro child Elly & hers mother Jude"
     ($283.33), and one "negro boy Frank, a cripple of no value".
     Additionally, there were five three-year-old steers valued at $12
     each, nine other steers, three heifers, a bull, six cows
     (with five calves), four horses (a gelding, a sorrel, a bay, and a
     grey), nine hogs, thirteen sheep, and a wagon and gear for four
     horses.  Executers were John, Aaron and William Ingram. 14 16 17

History of the Samuel Ingram
1. Samuel Ingram

Death Date: 1799/1801
Death Place: Montgomery Co., Virginia

Early Adventurers On The Western Water, Vol. II (1745-1800) by Mary B. Kegley

p. 305;  Samuel Ingram, Sr. first appeared on the waters of the New River in 1767
when he settled on a tract of 300 acres of land on Bullock Pen Branch near the
present town of Newbern.  In 1769 he purchased the John Miller-John Strupw tract
of land on Peak Creek, and in addition had a tract of 209 acres on Sinking Spring
"by ye Great road" surveyed by William Preston for the Loyal Company.  This tract
was held jointly with Adam Waggoner.  Two days later, on March 18, 1769. a survey
was made for Ingram alone for a tract of 210 acres on Peak Creek, adjoining James
Walker.  The grant for 300 acres was received in 1785.  Beginning with this 300
acres Ingram built up his plantation by adding three additional tract, finalizing
the total in an inclusive survey of 634 acres in the year 1796.
The grant was received the next year (Botetourt County Deed Book 1,
p. 16; Commissioner's Certificates,

p. 34; Montgomery County Survey Book E, p.228; Preston Family Papers, Library of
Congress, 581; Land Grant Books O, p. 182; 36, p.414). In 1770 Samuel Ingram was
granted permission to build his mill and a jury was appointed to adjudge damages
and report.  His mill was one of the earliset in the area.  In 1771 Ingram acted
as a surveyor of a road from Ingles' to Peak Creek, and in 1776 was overseer of
the road from Sinking Spring to Peak Creek. In 1774 the Montgomery County Court
ordered that it be certified to the Governor of Virginia that Samuel Ingram had
produced 1,600 pounds of "neat winter rotted hemp"

Summers, Annals, pp. 74, 123, 621, 648).
In the summer of 1774 when there was so much trouble with the Indians, the Ingrams
were among the families who chose to remain at home while other neighbors went to a
nearby fort.  In 1775 Samuel produced in court an account of his expense to taking up
his servant man, Thomas Walsh, when he ran away, and for the 26 days absent time.
The court decided that Walsh was to serve his master one year and five months for his
expenses, and fifty-two days for the twenty-six absent days, after his present time of
indenture otherwise expired.

(Preston Papers, Draper Mss., 3 QQ 54; Summers, Annals, p. 643).
In 1775 Ingram purchased 80 acres formerly belonging to Frederick Shore.  In 1780 he
served on a jury and he was one of the appraisers of the estate of Eloner Snodgrass
in 1793.  Ingram sold tracts of land to Robert Currin in 1784, to Adam Hance 1787, and
to Jonathan Ingram in 1796 (Summers, Annals, pp. 646, 743, 835, 915, 919, 928; Montgomery
County Deed Books A, pp. 329, 476; B, p. 257). In 1780 Samuel Ingram and his sons Jonathan
and James were tried for being Loyalists.  Samuel was found guilty and was ordered to the
Augusta jail for further trail, but the two sons volunteered to enlist in the American army
until December 31, 1781.

(Preston Papers, Draper Mss., QQ 68-72, 72-79).
James Ingram must have been some what of a prankster, for he and John Reins were summoned
to appear for "raising a false rumour and putting some of the inhabitants of the County
into fear."  The information files with the summons indicated that Reins and Ingram had
just returned from duty on the frontier and in one place hung a blanket to a treetop and
set a hat on it and remained by the roadside with guns ready to fire, and in one instance
did fire their guns and hallooed like Indians in the night thus alarming the inhabitants.
Captain Joseph Cloyed and Robert Evans were called as witnesses.

(Montgomery County Loos Papers, April 1779, Virginia State library, Archives).
For the purpose of evidence in a lawsuit, Samuel Ingram, Sr. vs. James McCorkle and Daniel
Trigg, David Crouch filed a deposition of interest on May 30, 1789.  He stated that in 1779
he was at the house of Samuel Ingram, Sr., when Ingram asked him to go to his smokedhouse and
"drink a dram;" once there Ingram lifted up "something like a bee gum and took out a large
bundle of counterfeit paper money" and asked Crouch what he thought of it.   When asked what
he intended to do with it, Ingram stated he planned to take a cart with some skins and furs
and go "towards the Northward and try to traffic it off for something or other."  Crouch
advised him not to do that or he would be hanged and bring his family to scandal, but Ingram
replied "it was as good as any, for it was all good for nothing."  Crouch stated that the
money was made on Ingram's platation and there appeared to be several more bundles of the
same kind shown to him.  Crouch heard that Ingram had passed some of the money to James
Millar and when Sheriff Bell came, the money was returned.  The money Ingram received in
payment for land he sold to Captain James McCorkle, he offered to pass to Colonel William
Ingles who disputed taking it but fimally accepted it as payment for the round glade tract
of land that Colonel Ingles at Crockett's blacksmith shop.

(Montgomery County Loose Papers, Virginia State Library, Archives).
Samuel Ingram, Sr., wrote his will on January 17, 1799, and it was recorded in August 1801

(Montgomery County Will Book 1, p.114).  He devised to his two sons Aaron and William all
his lands, and Aaron was to pay his brother Samuel L100. William was to support his mother,
whose name was Ann, and he was to have the dwelling house.  In addition to her support William
was to pay his mother L100. Three sons, John, William and Aaron, were to act as executors.
The appraisal of the estate was done on August 26, 1801, the total appraised value being $1,736.53.

(Montgomery Co. Will Book 1, p. 118).  Among the items listed in the will book were the following
selected items: 22 cows, calves, and steers; one bull, 9 hogs, 13 sheep, 4 horses, a wagon and
gears for four horses, plowirons, crosscut saw, handsaw, augers, pitchforks, foot adze,
drawing knife, clevis, scythes, quarrying sledge, falling axes, mattocks, hoes, a frying
pan, steelyards, 4 beds, 2 flatirons, a "lanthorn," coffee mill, 2 coffeepots, 2 pint cups
of tin, a stone "jugg," a pair of gold scales, a jackscrew, a chest, a check reel, a big
wheel, 4 chairs, saddle, bridle and "sircingle" [girth], iron kettle, a washing tub, a
grindstone, a loom, 3 Dutch ovens, 3 pair of pot hooks, a large skiller, 2 pots, a pair
"truckle" wheels, a set of harrow teeth, pewter, 2 tables, pot racks, 6 piggins, 2 coolers,
a bread tray, and 7 Negroes ranging in value from $100 to $300. The Ingrams occupied the
central uplands.
