The earliest known of my Ingram ancestors was John Ingram and his wife, Mary. John was born in Northern Ireland in 1745 and married his wife about 1764. Of their children we know of only five sons: Richard, David, William and John, all of whom were born in Northern Ireland and James, who was born in North Carolina. The Ingrams immigrated to America arriving in Savannah, Georgia in December, 1768.
It was the grandson of John and Mary Ingram, Washington Ezekiel Ingram, who, with his brother, Hugh relocated from Georgia to Texas, the first to settle in 1850 in what is now Rural Shade, Navarro County, Texas.
