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?
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:
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.  Was the deceased couple the parents of Peasley Ingram or the grandparents? Since no will was written, the question is hard to answer.
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.
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.
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,
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. John Ingram would have to be 21 at the time of this deed which places his birth before 2 MAY 1721.

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:
