INGRAM -
I am looking for any information for Issac Ingram. I believe that he is my great great grandfather. He had a son named James Ingram listed on the 1870 Census that I believe to be my great grandfather. James had a brother also named Issac that is also listed on the census and his mother's name was Jane. I think this is the same Issac Ingram that is buried with his wife Jane in the France / Ingram cemetery off of 623 near Ingramville.
