William was born about 1729. William Ingles ... He passed away about 1782. [1]

The first European wedding took place in the New River Valley in 1750, when the son of Thomas Ingles married the daughter of George Draper, thus uniting the families of two men who had left Ireland and made their way to Draper's Meadow by way of Pennsylvania. Newlyweds Mary Draper and William Ingles resided for a time in the general area where Smithfield Plantation, Foxridge Apartments, and the Virginia Tech Duck Pond sit today. The young couple-we could call them William and Mary of Draper's Meadow-had two young sons, Thomas and George, when the French and Indian War broke out, part of a huge contest between the superpowers of the time, the French and English empires. In the meantime, Mary's brother, John Draper, married Betty Robinson in 1754, and they had a baby.
