Actually saw that after you mentioned it. Looked up the Hennepin County, Minnesota census from 1870 and saw that Samuel, Elizabeth, Missouri and Victoria were listed on the census. However, for some reason, Victoria was listed as Victoria Eagle, not Victoria Helton. Victoria was my great grandmother but I am trying to find out where she was in 1894 when my grandfather was born. No one know which one it was, but according to my family he was the son of a William Ingles (as in Mary Draper Ingles great grandson or great great grandson). There were two listed that I have found for the Radford area of Virginia. According to the 1900 census, Samuel, Elizabeth, and a boy named William B. were living in the poorhouse in the Radford area (part of the poorhouse farm was later turned into Claytor Lake starting around 1923 and finishing around 1925). What my mother remembers of the family stories, the grandparents, Victoria's parents and Missouri's parents were in the process of moving out west. I thought Oklahoma but if that's the case, they should have bought a new map if they ended up in Minnesota. Some how, not sure if it was illness or why, but both sets of parents died on the way. The grandparents brought Victoria and Missouri back to Virginia and rented them out as house servants. In fact, all of the census lists that I have found after 1870 show Victoria as a house keeper or servant. I don't know if any of this information helps you out, but I thought I would pass it along. And, for the record, the person that I am looking to link to the Ingles family is William Bruster "Bruce" Helton, born in 1894 and died in 1975. That is my grandfather.
