Ringgold Record, 1893
DIED--Saturday morning, June 3rd, 1893, at her home in Mt. Ayr, Mrs. Andrew INGRAM, aged 60 years, 5 months and 27 days. Mrs. INGRAM was born near Phillippi, in West
Virginia on December 6th, 1832. Her maiden name was Hester Ann HADDIX. She came with her parents to Richland county, Ohio, when whe
was three years old, and grew to womanhood in that county. In the year 1854, she was married to
Andrew INGRAM. In the year of 1856, she removed with her husband to Illinois and
soon united with the Chirstian church at Macomb. It was during an interesting metting held by Elder SHOCKLEY of Indiana, that she once for
all decided for the christian life. Ever since this time, she has held fast her faith and attachement to the church of her choice, and in
Jesus Christ as her Redeemer. In both sorrow and sickness, her faith has been strong and unwavering. She spent some years in
Monmouth, Ill., where she testified faithfully for Christ.
In the year 1869, she removed to Mt. Ayr, with her family where she
has since made her home. She has been a great sufferer for over thirty years, having been an invalid and confined to her bed most of the time.
And yet while the rod of affliction was laid on her, she drew near to the loving hand which held it, and thus softened the strokes. Her faith was
strong in her Savior, and her great comfort in sickness was to know that she had built her faith on the Rock of Christ, and hence nothing could
intimidate her or shake her faith in the life beyond. She was noted for her calm submission to the will of God, strong faith, and cheerful dispostion
under protracted trial. In her sufferings, a suffering Savior was her ever constant companion. She leaves a husband and two sons to mourn her departure.
The funeral took place from the Christian church, Sunday, June 4th at 2:30 p.m., conducted by her pastor, Rev. N. G. BROWN, assisted by Rev. C. L. NYE of
the M.E. church. The discourse was from Rev. 21:5-7. "Behold I make all things new, etc." The decaused has specially requested that the living should be
addressed and that little be said of the dead. Although Mrs. INGRAM had been much withdrawn from society, yet she had many friends and acquaintances, and
there was a large attendance at the funeral. Her end was peace.
