JOHN INGLE, farmer; P. O. Cozaddale; the subject of this sketch is a native of Harlan Township, this county, where he was born Feb 16, 1837. His early aspirations

were the farm, and amidst the rural scenes he grew up to manhood; he received the advantages of an education peculiar to the rural schools of the neighborhood in which he was reared. He was united in marriage the first time to Miss Hulda Gregory, April 9, 1859; these parents had five children – William P., born Oct. 23, 1860 (deceased); Izetta J., born April 7, 1862; Mary L., born June 29, 1866; Elizabeth I., born September 27, 1868; and Thomas R., Jan. 6, 1874 (deceased). On March 16, 1879, Mr. Ingle was bereaved by the loss of his companion by death, and full of affectionate and sad remembrances, he laid her away in a beautiful grassy plat near the home that she loved so well. Being left with his family, he was again married in June, 1880, to Miss Millie Long, who was born, August, 1860, at Fort Ancient, this county. These parents have one child – Charlie, born April 22, 1881. He is a member of the United Brethren Church, and of I.O.O.F., No. 308 Edenton Lodge. He has been remarkably successful in life and owns 500 acres of land in a high state of cultivation; he usually has 140 acres of meadow, 100 acres of wheat, and 70 acres of corn. Mr. Ingle takes great pride in fine cattle and hogs, of which he has a number. His father was William Ingle, originally from North Carolina, born Jan. 25, 1805; he married Miss Mary Higgins, of Shelby Co., Ind., and settled in this county about the year 1814; his father was an industrious man and his life was one of hardship and adventure; he labored on the Hamilton and Dayton canal over one year, at $13 per month, and, with what he saved of his earnings, he purchased the first 100 acres of land which formed the nucleus of the farm on which the above now lives. This is an example to the young well worthy their attention. For “he who by the plow would thrive must either hold or drive.”
