Biography

[Note: In the Book History of the town of Bristol, Grafton County, New Hampshire (1904), by Musgrove, Richard W. (Richard Watson), 1840-1914 p.249 he was saying that Jonathan Sr. & Ebenezer were the Sons of Samuel Ingalls, Timothy's Brother, Not Timothy.][1]

On Page 50 of The Genealogy and History of the Ingalls Family in America Giving the descendants of Edmund Ingalls who settled in Lynn, Mass, in 1629, Geo. E. Dunbar, Malden, Mass., 1903. the Author states the Father was Timothy.7

Samuel b Sep 15, 1712. He is supposed to be identical with Samuel the Father of Jonathan and Ebenezer, mentioned below. He was a Resident of Sandown and evidently spent part of his days in New Chester. In March 1782, New Chester voted to exempt him from a poll-tax. Of his children Ebenezer and Jonathan settled in New Chester. p249-250.4

Ebenezer was a settler on the Oren Nelson Farm west of Danforth brook, while Jonathan settled on the east side of the brook. Both were here as early as 1771, and served one term in the Revolutionary army from New Chester. Ebenezer served as selectman in 1776, and soon after removed to his farm. p250.4

So that too, has been changed, both sons are pared with Samuel, their Father. That's what the record says in Bristol. p249.4

Marriage #1

[Note Family Records show that Jonathans 1st wife was Hanna Locke, 1. DESCENDANTS OF JONATHAN INGALLS by Grayden Slowins With information provided by Arlene INGALLS SCHRADER of DeWitt, MI. A fact not known to either author].1[2]


1. Jonathan b. 1750 m. Hanna Locke.1


Children of Hanna Locke

1. Jonathan b. May 4 1762 m. Mar 8, 1785 Abigail Cleveland a Sister to John Cleveland.

From Family Records; "Jonathan INGALLS was born May 4, 1762, at Exeter, Grafton County, New Hampshire, son of Hannah LOCKE & Jonathan INGALLS, Sr.

He served in the Revolutionary War and was married March 8, 1785, to Abigail CLEVELAND, who was born in Connecticut, May 18, 1766, and died in Massachusetts, January 10, 1833.

Jonathan came to Ionia County, Michigan, with his grown children and grandchildren, who in 1838 became the first permanent settlers in Sebewa Township.

These were the families of Charles W. INGALLS, John B. TERRILL – husband of Polly INGALLS, and John BROWN – husband of Sarah (Sally) INGALLS. Other members of Jonathan’s family followed later, some never came.

Jonathan died in Sebewa, October 2, 1843, and his monument is by the side of KEEFER Hwy. near the land which belonged to his son-in-law, John B. TERRILL.

Two of John TERRILL’S sons-in-law, thereby grandsons-in-law of Jonathan, Anson W. HALBERT & William HOGLE, were also in that first settlement. HALBERT ran the first general store. The TERRILL land was that portion of N ½ NE ¼ Sec 25 Sebewa which became the John FRIEND-Lawrence KNAPP-James STANK farm and that portion of Sebewa town which John FRIEND platted from it. TERRILL & HALBERT also built the first sawmill on Sebewa Creek on that farm."[3]

http://ionia.migenweb.net/meat/sebewanews/sebewaitems8.html#30-1

[Note: The Terrill's and The Ingalls served in the Revolutionary War, the families became close for that reason, in fact Jonathan's grandson John married Ethan Allen's Niece, commander of the Green Mountain Boys. More on that later from Jessie Hogles' Journal][4]



Marriage #2

In the book, The History of the town of Bristol, Grafton County, New Hampshire (1904), by Musgrove, Richard W. (Richard Watson), 1840-1914

Jonathan m. Martha Locke a sister to Thomas Locke probably his second m. Town Records say Jonathan Ingalls m. Edna Hastings Nov 23, 1813, probably his 3rd m. He removed to Canada with a portion of his family. p 250.4

[Note: Our Family records record Hanna as the missing #1 Spouse, the second author says that the first 3 children were the children of the #1 spouse. I can confirm Jonathon, but, I'm going to have to get ahold of other members of the family to see if I can get that confirmed.]

Children of Martha Locke

1. Jonathan supposed to have been b. 1765 m. Mar 8, 1785 Abigail Cleveland a Sister to John Cleveland.4

[Note: Family Records say it was Hanna, Author is unsure, here's his Grave.]

Find A Grave: Memorial #37551274

Our Family records of birth Mother Hanna and birth date is also backed up by this Certified copy of his Birth Certificate.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11133-87040-97?cc=1542861&wc=M99R-NJ8:1832887122

2. Joanna who Married Daniel Heath Mar, 8 1785.4

3. Samuel m. Betsy a daughter of John Clough.4

[Note: with notation to see Clough. There it says; on Page 109 and they removed to South Newmarket.4 This is very interesting, that's not Samuels' Margarette DELANO.

I did find a certified copy of a Samuel's Birth Certificate and attached it to his profile he was born 11 Jul 1770 in Sandown, Rockingham, New Hampshire, United States.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11133-87450-45?cc=1542861&wc=M99R-NJ8:1832887122

Here on the 1850 United states Census, Samuel is married to Betsy living in Sandown, New Hampshire.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MWZK-2GB

But, their ages are given as 75, meaning that they were born in 1775.

There is a Samuel Ingalls born in 1775 in Sandown, Rockingham, New Hampshire born to a Nathaniel Ingalls. I also, found the Marriage license of Samuel to Betsy Clough 25 Nov 1802 which I have attached to that Samuel's profile.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-12348-149489-53?cc=1520640&wc=7131638

In addition I have found a copy of that Samuel's Birth Certificate who was born in January 31st, 1775.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-11133-89012-59?cc=1542861&wc=M99R-NJ8:1832887122

It's also clear if you continue to query Samuel m. Clough, you get the dates of birth of the children b. NH, and dates of death. But you get nothing on Samuel m. DELANO, as the family removes to Canada.

5. Abigail b. in Bristol Nov 26, 1774 m. Daniel Heath.4

http://archive.org/details/historyoftownofb02musg



In the Book The Genealogy and History of the Ingalls Family in America Giving the descendants of Edmund Ingalls who settled in Lynn, Mass, in 1629, Geo. E. Dunbar, Malden, Mass., 1903. Page 93. The Author lists the Children as;


James b. Jul 3, 1772 m. Ruth Sleeper.7 [Match]

Daniel b. June 6, 1784 m. 1st Polly Dymon 2nd Eunice Evans.7 [Few day off on Birth]

Samuel prob. m. Margaret, daughter of Joseph Jackman. He was living at Dunham, P, Q, in 1809, and in western New York after 1818. He was an "Unlearned Poet" A Copyrighted Edition of his works being published at Angelica, NY, in 1825.7

[Name Match spouse different.]

Jonathon.7 [Name Match]

Nancy.7 [Completely new, no record in Bristol ]

Olive m. Richson.7 [Name Match spouse different, going with the records in Bristol]

Hanna m. Worthan.7 [Completely new, no record in Bristol]

Polly d.

Mary 1810.7 [Completely new, no record in Bristol]

Mary m. Sandborn.7 [Completely new, no record in Bristol]

The Author says further; He live at Bridewater NH. and died age 84. He has been said to have had a second wife. The first 3 Children being by Martha Locke. Page 93.7

[I think between the 2 Authors they both got it half right. I believe that their were 3 wives. I believe the first three children may have been Born to Hanna Locke, she died, Jonathon married her sister Martha moved on to Bristol, or ran off with her to Bristol, she then had the rest of the children, and in his old age he then married Edna Hastings Nov 23, 1813. That date makes her too late to have any of these children.].1.2

Update of Samuels Ingalls 1/27/2014

If you follow Richard W Musgrove In the Book History of the town of Bristol, Grafton County, New Hampshire (1904), by Musgrove, Richard W. (Richard Watson), 1840-1914;

3. Samuel m. Betsy a daughter of John Clough.4

To his death he and his wife state they were born in 1775 on Censuses, and Married in 1802 in Sandownd, Rockingham New Hampshire; Further their Marriage license says they were both of Sandown.

If you follow Geo. E. Dunbar account of Samuel in The Genealogy and History of the Ingalls Family in America Giving the descendants of Edmund Ingalls who settled in Lynn, Mass, in 1629, Geo. E. Dunbar, Malden, Mass., 1903.;

Samuel prob. m. Margaret, daughter of Joseph Jackman. He was living at Dunham, P, Q, in 1809, and in western New York after 1818. He was an "Unlearned Poet" A Copyrighted Edition of his works being published at Angelica, NY, in 1825.7

First off he says prob. m. Margaret, daughter of Joseph Jackman.

Then he says what he knew; "He was living at Dunham, P, Q, in 1809, and in western New York after 1818. He was an "Unlearned Poet" A Copyrighted Edition of his works being published at Angelica, NY, in 1825."

To get the story you have to google "Dunham, P, Q". The translation you get from google is; Dunham is a city in the Canadian province of Quebec.

This fits the Ingalls record here at The Laura Ingalls Wilder website;

http://www.dahoudek.com/LIW/default.aspx

In reguards to the marriage in Quebec, and the births for there first childern in Canada. Thereafter they show up in New York as stated by Dunbar. I have no doubt in my mind now that the Samuel he speaks of was correct. But like both Authors, they got it half right; ie it wasn't Jackman, it was DELANO.

Further, let me conclude; My Great-grand-mother she never wrote about Laura Ingalls Wilder because she probably never heard of her in her time, nor had anybody she was speaking too; as they were all doing their own version of Little House in the Big Woods then. Samuels' Branch was back East writing Poems as they were settling the Midwest. Must have been impressive for a little girl, they took in stride.

But I have to admit, I just wanted to make double sure of all of this in my own mind and expose them if they were Loyalists; as that's were most when after the Revolution, Canada. And I'm convinced that they were not, why they went there I don't have a clue, but they eventually came west.

But both family records bear it out, and I respect their side of the Family to record their History as it happened. The only thing I fear at this Point is Hiram, Sr. son of Samuel & Margaret. They filed their Son of the American Revolution on Margaret Jackman, it's the same Hiram and that brach is lost on this tree.
