Biography

Contemporary John Ingram's

Careful research of primary sources proves there were two men named John Ingram who were born in Kent County between 1670-1685. Both men were married to women named Mary around 1704/05. See the profile of John Ingram. Were these two men first cousins?

Origin

The origin of the John Ingram who died in Baltimore County in 1733 is unclear. He is possibly the son of Thomas Ingram who died in Kent County in the 1669. Thomas Ingram died leaving a will naming his loving wife named Mary. It is possible she was pregnant at the time the will was written, but he didn't know it.

He cannot be the same John Ingram who married Mary Homewood (the daughter of John Peasley) for the following reasons:

  1. John Ingram and Mary Homewood were married in Anne Arundel County in 1705 in St. Margaret's Parish and were the parents of Peasley Ingram who was born in 1707 in the same parish. In the same parish are recorded the deaths of John & Mary Ingram just six months apart in 1717. [1] Was the deceased couple the parents of Peasley Ingram or the grandparents? Since no will was written, the question is hard to answer.
  2. Peasley Ingram is called the grandson of Hannah Goodhead in her will dated 17 APR 1719. Five other grandchildren are mentioned, but John Ingram is not.
  3. If John Ingram is related to Peasley Ingram, it is more likely they were half-brothers and John Ingram is the son from an earlier marriage.
  4. The last piece of evidence is the birth record of Dorcus Ingram, the daughter of John and Mary Ingram who was born in St. Paul's Parish in Kent County, Maryland in DEC 1707, just three months after the birth of Peasley Ingram in Anne Arundel County,[2]

Property

The first evidence of John Ingram in Baltimore County is a deed in which Michael Byrne, a cordwainer of Kent County, conveys to John Ingram of the aforesaid county a 100 tract called Michael's Chance located on the south side of the main falls of the Gunpowder River for 8,000 pounds of tobacco.[3] John Ingram would have to be 21 at the time of this deed which places his birth before 2 MAY 1721.

Marriage & Family

The marriage of John Ingram and Mary Bruingten on 10 JAN 1704 is recorded in St. Paul's Parish. [4]They were the parents of the following children whose births are recorded in St. Paul's Parish in Kent County:

William Ingram b. 16 DEC 1705
Thomas Ingram b. 18 FEB 1706
Dorcus Ingram b. DEC 1707
Martha Ingram b. 1 JAN 1714
John Ingram b. 10 SEP 1717
Elizabeth Ingram b. 12 SEP 1720
Benjamin Ingram b. 25 JAN 1723[5]

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with John by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with John:

posted on Ingram-5413 (merged) by Paul Ward
These comments concern John Ingram [Ingram-10], John Ingram [Ingram-5413], Mary Bruington [Bruington-48], William Ingram [Ingram-8225], Dorcus Ingram [Ingram-9], John Ingram [Ingram-1729], Elizabeth Ingram [Ingram-4676], and Benjamin Ingram [Ingram-8472].

The sources cited for the descendants of John Ingram [Ingram-10] are summaries of St. Paul's Parish records. The records themselves shed a bit more light on the Ingram family. The originals are available at

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS3G-MSBV-G?i=250

My transcription of the entries relating to the Ingrams is

page 293 (image 250):

John Ingram and Mary Bruington married Jan. 10th, 1704 [NS 1705]

Three entries down:

Darcus Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Baptized May 30th Anno Domi. 1708 [born Decem 10th 1707]


page 294 (image 251):

Thomas Ingram son of John and Mary Ingram Born Febry 18th 1706 [NS 1707]

Darcus Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born Decem 10th 1707

William Ingram son of John and Mary Ingram Born Decem. 16th 1705

Mary Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born August 11th 1712

further down the page, some repeats except for Thomas:

Mary Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born Aug 11th 1712

William Ingram son of John and Mary Ingram Born Decem. 16th 1705

Dorcus Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born Decem 1707

Martha Ingram daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born Janu 1st 1714 [NS 1715]

John Ingram son of John and Mary Ingram Born Septem 10th 1717

page 295 (image 251):

Elizabeth Ingram Daughter of John and Mary Ingram Born Sept 12th 1720

Benjamin Ingram son of John and Mary Ingram Born Janu 25th 1723 [NS 1724]

My conclusions are:

--all the entries for the births of children of John and Mary Ingram refer to the John Ingram [Ingram-10] and Mary Bruington [Bruington-48] who married Jan. 10, 1704 [NS 1705]

---in birth order their children include William (1705) [Ingram-8225], Thomas (1706/7) [no profile yet], Dorcus (1707) [Ingram-9], Mary (1712) [no profile yet], Martha (1714/5) [no profile yet], John (1717) [Ingram-1729], Elizabeth (1720) [Ingram-4676], Benjamin (1723/4) [Ingram-8472]

-- in the profile for John Ingram (1681-1738) [Ingram-5413] he was not the husband of Mary Bruington [Bruington-48] and not the father of Elizabeth [Ingram-4676]

-- in the profile for John Ingram [Ingram-10], his wife was Mary Bruington [Bruington-48] and he was the father of all the above children

-- in the profile for Mary Bruington [Bruington-48] her husband was John Ingram [Ingram-10] and she was the mother of all the above children

-- in the profiles for the five children with profiles their mother was Mary Bruington [Bruington-48] and their father was John Ingram [Ingram-10].

So my suggestion is to conform all the mentioned profiles to these conclusions.

Why are you telling me? Im not the manager and I don't see that I placed any changes? and the Register that you quote is not the same one that I am adding.
posted by Carole Taylor
Why don't you put them on the profile all I am doing is adding the Register ENTRY to each persons profile or making a profile if I can not pull one up. thank you though. Mine is just a pure quote of the entry and it is attached. with the online site address image/page

Hmmm. I appear to have committed some sort of faux pas here. I am new at this and my only intent was to start a discussion about the eight profiles I mentioned in light of what I thought might be new information. I did not intend to direct my comment to/at anyone in particular. Three of the profiles require pre-1700 certification, which I have not done yet and changing eight profiles seemed overly ambitions given my lack of experience. So I wanted some confirmation that I was on the right track.

I am also unfamiliar with some of the wikitree jargon. So when you say you are "adding the Register ENTRY to each persons profile" I don't know what that means. Apologies for any newbie mistakes. Can you tell me the best way to accomplish what I want to do.

posted by Paul Ward
to add your list to the profiles first tighten it up I'll try to do some to show you.
posted by Carole Taylor
Welcome, I get it. The Register that I speak of has an image on each of the children's on it. But if you take the easy pre-certification........ then you can copy/paste and add it to at least the father.

I am not related to them just doing the source from the Register. wikitree.com is the greatest site........... We are here to help.. sorry I didn't understand.
