James Wilson Ingram

Ann Ingram's Dad. Ann is married to Enos Slover.

Am trying to locate the parents of James Wilson Ingram. This is what I have
so far:

James Wilson Ingram
b 1780-1790 NC
d 3/5/1846 in Washington Co., AR
m Nancy
Mary Ann b 1807 NC m Ezekiel Harrison
John B. b 1811 TN m Laurissa Ann Aiken
Rebecca Evaline b 2/4/1813 TN m Young B. Monday
William R. b 2/3/1814 TN m (1) Martha McClendon, (2) Sarah Winn
Susannah b 1816 TN m Gilbert Luper
James W. Jr. b 1821 TN m Manerva Ingram
Willis b abt 1823 TN m Mary R. ?
Nancy b 4/1/1824 TN m Robert Seymore
Ann b 1825 TN m Enos Slover
Lewis b 1829 TN m (1) Serena (2) Nancy Jane Bingham
Elizabeth b 3/10/1829 TN m Robert Seymore (same one as her sister Nancy)

James W. Ingram Sr.'s father might have been William Ingram who he lived close
to in Bledsoe Co., TN and would have been an age to have been his father.
James is first found in the census records for Bledsoe Co. in 1830, however
the earliest land grant found for him was in 1828.

James Ingram is closely allied with the Monday and Luper families and appears
to have migrated to Washington Co., AR about the same time they did. He is
first found in Wash. Co., AR in an 1837 tax list.

I'm not sure where James was from in NC, but the other families that are
allied were found in Robeson Co., Edgecombe Co., and Johnston Co., NC.


Now that we seem to have some new,active researchers on this list would like
to inquire one more time and James Wilson Ingram. He is in the 1830 census for
Bledsoe Co, TN, where William Lee and wife died. Both William Lee and James
Ingram had land grants from state of TN. In the next county, Rhea County, we
find James Ingram's son-in-law, Gilbert Luper, another son-in-law, Young B
Monday. These families all went to Washington Co AR by 1837 or so. Washington
Co AR is where a Shadrack Ingram landed, a few years earlier per tax lists
mentioned in the AIS census index on fiche at LDS family history centers.

One reason I am interested is that there were also some Lupo/Lupers in
Johnston Co, AR.

By the way, I have the Michael King family that married into the Ingrams and
Lees and Powells on my home page at

that has a link to an obituary with some info on James Wilson Ingram.

sorry sharon but robert ingram did not come to america until about 1786. he had a son john who was born about 1800 and this was in north carolina. good luck!
