Ingram Family Genealogy Forum
Am working on the family of my 4th great-grandfather Joseph Ingram. The abstract of his will lists his wife as Ann, children are Griffin, Hanna, Tempe, James P, George and Isaac. In his daughter Temperance's May 1888 obit, it mentions her parents Joseph and Ann Allen Ingram; does not name her deceased brothers but lists her deceased sisters as Mrs. Robert Branscomb, Mrs Michael Lovell, Mrs John S Eaves and Miss Hannah Ingram.
Confusion lies in the birth dates of Mary Ann and Temperance. Dates on Tempy's tombstone are 5 Feb 1794-5 May 1888. Almost all of the family trees listing Mary Ann Ingram have her date of birth as 10 Jan 1794, which obviously cannot be correct. The memorial for Mary Ann at Find-a-Grave lists DOB as "unknown."
Does anyone know the origin of the 10 Jan 1794 birthdate for Mary Ann?
