ANDREW JACKSON INGLETT, OF WALTONVILLE, ILLINOIS, ANSWERS ROLL CALL
Again the grim reaper has invaded our community and one of the "Boys in Blue"
has answered the "Roll Call" and crossed the silent river to camp on the eternal
camping ground, and has joined the innumerable hosts, of those of 1861 to 1865,
who have preceded him.
Andrew Jackson INGLETT was born Nov. 15th, 1842, near Mt. Vernon, Ill., and passed
serenely to the "Great Beyond" at his home in Waltonville, Ill., Oct. 25, 1932.
Had he lived until Nov. 15, he would have reached the ripe old age of ninety years.
He enlisted in the 110th Illinois regiment, Co. H. at Murphysboro, Ill., Aug. 13, 1862.
He with thirty other "Boys in Blue" was captured Nov. 14, 1862, near Knoxville, Tennessee,
where they were held prisoners for some time. After the close of the war he returned home
where on April 3rd, 1863, he was married to Susan Ann WILSON, at Nashville, Ill.
To this union were born eight children, namely: John W., now deceased; Chas. P., of
Lucas South Dakota; Geo. E., of Sesser, Ill.; Mrs Linnie L. DALBY, deceased; D. O. INGLETT,
Calwa, Calif; Mrs. Letta GLENN, of Sparta, Ill.; Ray J., of Nason, Ill.; and Mrs. Ethel SPICER,
of Arlington, Mo. Mr. INGLETT leaves twenty-seven grandchildren, and 41 great-grandchildren
to mourn his loss. His wife having preceded him in death June 2, 1916, their married life
covering a period of 53 years. Mr. INGLETT was the son of John W. and Clarinda McLAUGHLIN
INGLETT. His father served in the Mexican War. He leaves one sister, Mrs. Ann MUMBOWER of
Taylorville, Ill., one half-sister, Mrs. Eliza MUMBOWER, Springfield, Ill.; and one half-
brother, P. W. SHAFFER, of Gibson, Mo. survive him.
Mr. INGLETT bought his land from the Illinois Central R. R. in 1866 where he resided 54 years
and reared his family and he spent most of his life until a few years ago he moved to Waltonville.
When a young man he farmed very extensively and was counted very successful. "Uncle Jack" as
he was familiarly called was an honest, upright, and very dependable citizen. He worked at
the carpenter trade, and brick laying, when not occupied with his farm work. Mr. INGLETT
had a strong active mind, and possessed of much executive ability, and always a close observer,
a good reasoner, a successful farmer, and an excellent citizen.
One by One, the Final Conquerer, Death, is rapidly thinning the ranks of the "Boys in Blue".
In a few more years the last of the Civil War veterans will have joined their comrades on
"Fames Eternal Camp Ground". All honor to the heroic men of battle, and the day is fast
approaching when the last "Grand Army" Veteran stands alone under the folds of "Old Glory"
for which he so valiantly fought and the story of their heroic deeds will only be written on
memory's page. These boys in blue are falling like withered leaves in autumn and every day
the ranks grow thinner, and they are mustered out to their last roll call.
"Dear Father, you are not forgotten,
Though on earth you are not more,
Still in memory you are with us,
As you always were before.
From another obituary on October 26, 1932 - He died at the home of his daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Ethel INGLETT, widow of John INGLETT. Funeral services will be held at the Methodist
Church in Waltonville, at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, conducted by the Rev. Paul BROWN of
Belleville. Mr. BROWN is a friend of the family.
