History of the Samuel Ingram

1. Samuel Ingram
Death Date:	1799/1801
Death Place:	Montgomery Co., Virginia

Early Adventurers On The Western Water, Vol. II (1745-1800) by Mary B. Kegley

p. 305;  Samuel Ingram, Sr. first appeared on the waters of the New River in 1767
when he settled on a tract of 300 acres of land on Bullock Pen Branch near the 
present town of Newbern.  In 1769 he purchased the John Miller-John Strupw tract
of land on Peak Creek, and in addition had a tract of 209 acres on Sinking Spring
"by ye Great road" surveyed by William Preston for the Loyal Company.  This tract
was held jointly with Adam Waggoner.  Two days later, on March 18, 1769. a survey 
was made for Ingram alone for a tract of 210 acres on Peak Creek, adjoining James 
Walker.  The grant for 300 acres was received in 1785.  Beginning with this 300 
acres Ingram built up his plantation by adding three additional tract, finalizing 
the total in an inclusive survey of 634 acres in the year 1796.  
The grant was received the next year (Botetourt County Deed Book 1, 
p. 16; Commissioner's Certificates, 

p. 34; Montgomery County Survey Book E, p.228; Preston Family Papers, Library of 
Congress, 581; Land Grant Books O, p. 182; 36, p.414). In 1770 Samuel Ingram was 
granted permission to build his mill and a jury was appointed to adjudge damages 
and report.  His mill was one of the earliset in the area.  In 1771 Ingram acted 
as a surveyor of a road from Ingles' to Peak Creek, and in 1776 was overseer of 
the road from Sinking Spring to Peak Creek. In 1774 the Montgomery County Court 
ordered that it be certified to the Governor of Virginia that Samuel Ingram had 
produced 1,600 pounds of "neat winter rotted hemp" 

Summers, Annals, pp. 74, 123, 621, 648). 
In the summer of 1774 when there was so much trouble with the Indians, the Ingrams 
were among the families who chose to remain at home while other neighbors went to a 
nearby fort.  In 1775 Samuel produced in court an account of his expense to taking up 
his servant man, Thomas Walsh, when he ran away, and for the 26 days absent time.  
The court decided that Walsh was to serve his master one year and five months for his 
expenses, and fifty-two days for the twenty-six absent days, after his present time of 
indenture otherwise expired.

(Preston Papers, Draper Mss., 3 QQ 54; Summers, Annals, p. 643). 
In 1775 Ingram purchased 80 acres formerly belonging to Frederick Shore.  In 1780 he 
served on a jury and he was one of the appraisers of the estate of Eloner Snodgrass 
in 1793.  Ingram sold tracts of land to Robert Currin in 1784, to Adam Hance 1787, and 
to Jonathan Ingram in 1796 (Summers, Annals, pp. 646, 743, 835, 915, 919, 928; Montgomery 
County Deed Books A, pp. 329, 476; B, p. 257). In 1780 Samuel Ingram and his sons Jonathan and James were tried for being Loyalists.  Samuel was found guilty and was ordered to the Augusta jail for further trail, but the two sons volunteered to enlist in the American army until December 31, 1781.

(Preston Papers, Draper Mss., QQ 68-72, 72-79).  
James Ingram must have been some what of a prankster, for he and John Reins were summoned 
to appear for "raising a false rumour and putting some of the inhabitants of the County 
into fear."  The information files with the summons indicated that Reins and Ingram had 
just returned from duty on the frontier and in one place hung a blanket to a treetop and 
set a hat on it and remained by the roadside with guns ready to fire, and in one instance 
did fire their guns and hallooed like Indians in the night thus alarming the inhabitants. 
Captain Joseph Cloyed and Robert Evans were called as witnesses.

(Montgomery County Loose Papers, April 1779, Virginia State library, Archives). 
For the purpose of evidence in a lawsuit, Samuel Ingram, Sr. vs. James McCorkle and Daniel Trigg, David Crouch filed a deposition of interest on May 30, 1789.  He stated that in 1779 he was at the house of Samuel Ingram, Sr., when Ingram asked him to go to his smokedhouse and "drink a dram;" once there Ingram lifted up "something like a bee gum and took out a large bundle of counterfeit paper money" and asked Crouch what he thought of it.   When asked what he intended to do with it, Ingram stated he planned to take a cart with some skins and furs and go "towards the Northward and try to traffic it off for something or other."  Crouch advised him not to do that or he would be hanged and bring his family to scandal, but Ingram replied "it was as good as any, for it was all good for nothing."  Crouch stated that the money was made on Ingram's platation and there appeared to be several more bundles of the same kind shown to him.  Crouch heard that Ingram had passed some of the money to James Millar and when Sheriff Bell came, the money was returned.  The money Ingram received in payment for land he sold to Captain James McCorkle, he offered to pass to Colonel William Ingles who disputed taking it but fimally accepted it as payment for the round glade tract of land that Colonel Ingles at Crockett's blacksmith shop.

(Montgomery County Loose Papers, Virginia State Library, Archives). 
Samuel Ingram, Sr., wrote his will on January 17, 1799, and it was recorded in August 1801 

(Montgomery County Will Book 1, p.114).  He devised to his two sons Aaron and William all 
his lands, and Aaron was to pay his brother Samuel £100. William was to support his mother, whose name was Ann, and he was to have the dwelling house.  In addition to her support William was to pay his mother £100. Three sons, John, William and Aaron, were to act as executors. 
The appraisal of the estate was done on August 26, 1801, the total appraised value being $1,736.53.

(Montgomery Co. Will Book 1, p. 118).  Among the items listed in the will book were the following selected items: 22 cows, calves, and steers; one bull, 9 hogs, 13 sheep, 4 horses, a wagon and gears for four horses, plowirons, crosscut saw, handsaw, augers, pitchforks, foot adze, drawing knife, clevis, scythes, quarrying sledge, falling axes, mattocks, hoes, a frying pan, steelyards, 4 beds, 2 flatirons, a "lanthorn," coffee mill, 2 coffeepots, 2 pint cups of tin, a stone "jugg," a pair of gold scales, a jackscrew, a chest, a check reel, a big wheel, 4 chairs, saddle, bridle and "sircingle" [girth], iron kettle, a washing tub, a grindstone, a loom, 3 Dutch ovens, 3 pair of pot hooks, a large skiller, 2 pots, a pair "truckle" wheels, a set of harrow teeth, pewter, 2 tables, pot racks, 6 piggins, 2 coolers, a bread tray, and 7 Negroes ranging in value from $100 to $300. The Ingrams occupied the central uplands.
