James W. Ingram

Hooray! Hooray! I finally found something on James W Ingram!!!!

John B. Ingram, oldest son and second of the twelve known children of James Wilson and Nancy (Presley?) Ingram, was born in 1811 in Bledsoe County, Tennessee. He and his father both purchased land in Kentucky, west of the Tennessee River, in the early 1830’s and may have lived there briefly. By 1833, most of the family was resident in Washington County, Arkansas, many becoming members of the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church. John was married on 20 Oct. 1833 in Washington County to Laurissa Ann (AKIN?), who was born about 1813 in Kentucky. They made their home in the Elm Spring area, and John is said to have been a millwright.

In the spring of 1852, Ingram families from all over the eastern and midwestern states joined together in a wagon train bound for Oregon, known as the Ingram Train and led by a Capt. James Ingram (this may have been John’s brother James W. Ingram Jr., born in 1821, or the older James Ingram of Iowa, who was born in 1809). Besides John and Laurissa, members of his family who joined this train were his brothers William R. (1812-1875), James W. (1821-1886), and Willis (1823- ), and brothers-in-law Enos SLOVER (married Ann) and James CARTWRIGHT (married
