According to the 1850 Estill County Census & 1860 Owsley Co. Census,
William Ingram and Mary Hoover had the following children before they
Elizabeth was born abt. 1846 in Estill Co. She appears with the family on
1850 and 1860 censuses, but is not seen after that.
Daniel was born about 1848 in Estill Co. He appears with the family on
1850 and 1860 censuses. There is a Daniel Ingram on 1870 & 1880 Jackson
Co. Censuses and 1900 Lee Co. Census who appears to be the same Daniel. If
this is true, he married a woman by the name of Catherine.
Dianah was born 04 Sep 1849 in Estill Co. and died 17 Feb 1930 in Estill
Co. She married Lewis Sparks. They are buried in the Sparks Cem. in
Arie was born about 1853. I'm not sure if it was in Estill or Owsley. She
appears with her family on the 1860 Owsley Co. Census, but I'd not found
her after that.
Hardin was born about 1855 in Owsley Co. He appears on the 1860 Owsley Co.
Census and the 1870 Estill Co. Census with his mother. He also appears on
the 1880 Estill Co. Census with his wife, father-in-law and sister in law.
He married Tabitha Barnes (aka Tabitha Arvin) in Estill Co.
Rachel was born about 1860 in Owsley Co. She appears on the 1870 Estill
Co. Census with her mother. She also appears on the 1880 Estill Co. Census
living with her new husband at her sister's, Dianah, home. She married
William Morris in Estill Co. on 13 May 1880.
Today while looking at the 1880 Annotated Lee Co. census, I found the
household of Charles Griffin, age 37. He was listed with his wife Ara
who's maiden name was listed as Ingram. Her age was given as 29, but we
all know how that goes <grin> The annotation states she was possibly the
daughter of Hardin Ingram, but Hardin had no child named Ara. It also
states they were married about 1870.
Is there anyone out there who can help me place this Ara Ingram? I believe
her to be the same as Arie, d/o William and Mary Hoover Ingram.
Also, does anyone know what happened to Elizabeth, born about 1846?
Thanks so much for help in advance!

The following is submitted in hopes that list members can make
connections to the names mentioned below in this article written by
James B. Spence. The article is derived from the Knott County
Historical Society's Electronic Knott County & Eastern Kentucky's
Chronological History (1673-2000). Love to hear your responses.
David R. Smith, President
Knott County Historical Society
Sturgeon, Owsley County. "All the schools of Owsley have closed for this season except those of Mr. V.T.
Thomas, of Booneville and Miss Minnie Seale of District No. 21.
"The New Year has come and with it cold and snow and the thermometer ten degrees below zero. A very
nice time for rabbit hunting and storing away ice for next summer. Mr. Lee Congleton finished storing his house
full on last Saturday.
"Dr. J.M. Mahaffy, Representative elect to the present Legislature, has left home for Frankfort to take his seat
with that body. We hope he will in the Legislature serve his country as truly and faithfully as he has as a
physician and neighbor.
"The teachers of Owsley have succeeded much better in their schoolroom work this year than any preceding
year, having a better attendance, better discipline and order, more harmony, as a rule, and better still, they are
still not satisfied with the good work of the present year but have gone off to attend the best high schools and
colleges of our State and to further prepare themselves for the good work they have so earnestly begun and we
trust they will continue till they have place the public schools of Owsley on a higher plane of excellence and
make them a model for other counties and a light for all Eastern Kentucky.
"We hope that all teachers will endeavor with all their might to implant temperance in the minds of all the pupils
that come under their charge and so elevate the present school population of Kentucky that intemperance may
be blotted out of our State. Intemperance and its train of evils is the bane of this Commonwealth. It is the duty
of the schools, the ministry, and the press to work hand in hand to banish this curse from our country and build
up a higher citizenship." Jas. B. Spence.
Many new people are being added to genealogy research in year 2000 and those
people should be aware of a little known or should I say a little known
historical fact about our government adoption of the Gregorian calendar and
the timing of such policy.
England and the English Colonies in North America did not adopt the Gregorian
calendar until year 1752. Quite a few years before the Am. Rev. War years.
The problem being that prior to when England and The Colonies adopted
together the new Gregorian calendar, England government used the 25th day of
March as the first day of the year, and its people in the majority used 1
January for the start of a year. This affected the recording of Birth Dates,
among a lot of other problems in record keeping! So, the government ordered
on 2 September 1752, the very next day be 14 September 1752.
(11 days jump in time)
This then prompted many people to add 11 days to their Birth Dates. Unless a
Will is recorded with this information, it is not a fact you will ever find
this noted on a Birth record. That fact makes all Births in this time period
of the 1700s questionable as to the specific day and in some cases specific
month of birth, that we researchers claim to be true fact now in the year
2000 of these persons born in the 1700s.

Well, it's with much sadness in my heart, I'm on my way to Owsley today to
send off my good friend Henry Sizemore who died Wednesday Morning of cancer I
guess... No, I am not sad for Henry in his passing, I am sad for ME and all
of us who knew him... call me selfish if you wish. You might say that when
I was in Kentucky and doing reseach in our family history, Henry Sizemore was
kinda like a big brother on one hand and a tour guide on the other... His
wife Francis is the greatest cook I ever seen and she would always have
something incredible sitting on the table to eat no matter what time Henry &
I would FINALLY get back home from our travels here and there.
No, Henry was not proud that he could not read nor write in this old flesh
body, but I'll tell you that the Lord blessed him with a photographic memory
of names, places, events and faces... he took me all over those hills down
there in and around Booneville showed me places where different events
happened through the years... He introduced me to dozens of people...
One time a number of years ago he even took me to meet his momma in the
nursing home, I don't know how old she was at that time, near 90 I'd suppose
(she died in 1995 @ 94 yrs old)... Her maiden name was Lilly THOMAS and I
remember she had the most beautiful Blue Eyes I have ever seen in my entire
life. Happy Blue Eyes which lit up when she saw her son Henry striding down
the hall to see her... Eyes which etched themselves into my memory forever
as she smiled... On the other hand, I saw Sad Blue Eyes at times, when she
shed tears of love for those of her family who had passed on before her...
Henry took me to lots of old unkept cemeteries and showed me graves marked
with old rocks... He told me of who was buried there... and when they
died... how they died... who their parents were... who they married... where
they lived, etc. He seemed to know it all. When I would get back to my
computer to check out his memories against "supposed" fact, he seem to always
be right, and many times even filling in more details which had evaded me in
my search for the truths about our sometimes elusive ancestors. Yes, Henry
Sizemore told me lots of stories that I will not soon forget...
Though tears may be streaming from my eyes for my loss as I compose this, I
guess I am comforted by knowing the simple truth from God's Word about where
are the dead... It was given to us by the Apostle Paul as wrote so
beautifully to those of Cornith.
II Corinthians 5:6: Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst
we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
2Co:5:7: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
2Co:5:8: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the
body is to be present with the Lord.,
TODAY, my friend Henry Sizemore IS with the Father in heaven, AND guess
what? He can read and write, and furthermore he knows Everything about God's
plans for those of us who remain stuck here in the flesh in this old world
full of corruption and un-godly things... And if I know Henry Sizemore at
all, he is shedding a tear or two for us... I love you Henry Sizemore... And
I will miss you...
