21 February 1878 - The Tipton Advertiser

DIED--At her residence in Villisca, Ia., on February 5th, 1878, Mrs. HARRIET INGMAN, aged 56 years.

She was born in Starksboro, Addison county, Vermont, March 12th, 1822, her family name being Farnham. In the fall of 1831 she removed with her parents to Hardin county, Ohio. In the year 1840, she professed her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, under the ministry of Elder Dudley, and united with the Freewill Baptist church, continuing a steadfast Christian to the end of life. In 1854, at Akron, Ohio, she was united in marriage to Mr. G. P. Ingman, and with him lived in the most precious fellowship until her death.

Mr. and Mrs. Ingman removed to Tipton, Iowa, in 1856, and from there to Villisca, September, 1870, where Mrs. Ingman united with the M.E. church, and where also her last earthly home was reached.

Through a long and severe sickness her character and faith were put to severe tests, but submission to a Heavenly Father's providence enabled her to endure without complaining. Her many natural and Christian virtues revealed a character of rare beauty and excellence, and compelled all who knew her to love and honor her, and made all desirous of retaining on earth so precious a life. We cherish her memory and friendship as one of the most precious of this life.

Her remains were gently laid away in the Villisca Cemetery on Friday, February 8th. A very large congregation attended the funeral services and many anticipating the reunion in the "Sweet By and By," of which the Divine Teacher has said, "If it were no so, I would have told you." --Villisca Review.
