Well Known Civil War Veteran of At Aberdeen Is Stricken Suddenly on Wednesday Night.

J. S. Ingram, Civil war veteran, and one of the best known and best liked men in Aberdeen, died suddenly last Wednesday night at 11 o'clock at his home in Westport.

News of his demise was received Thursday morning. Mr. Ingram was apparently as well as usual Tuesday but was taken ill Tuesday evening and Dr. L. L. Goodnow was summoned Wednesday to attend him. Dr. Goodnow found his patient suffering from internal hemorrhages and chronic ailment, the result of his long service in the war and from which he has never fully recovered.

Mr. Ingram, when 18 years of age enlisted in the war, going to the front with the Twenty-fifth Indiana regiment. He served for five years and participated in 61 battles. While his regiment was at Georgetown, Mo. rebel sympathizers poisoned a well with arsenic and of the 1,004 men only 180 recovered from the effects of the poison. Mr. Ingram never fully recovered.

In 1889 Mr. Ingram came West with his children, his wife having died the year previous. Mr. Ingram was a charter member of George Crook post, G. A. R., and was one of its officers.

The surviving relatives are his sons, Councilman William T. Ingram, Chas. and Roy Ingram, and his daughter, Mrs. Roy Coons. The funeral took place Saturday afternoon from Whiteside's undertaking parlors, under the auspices of the G. A. R., George Crook Post and the Women's Relief Corps attending in a body. Services were held at the Methodist church Rev. B. F. Brooks officiating. The church was filled with old friends of Mr. Ingram and family, many of whom accompanied the remains to Fern Hill cemetery.

Members of G. A. R. Form Guard of Honor to Dead Veteran

The funeral of J. S. Ingram was held last Saturday afternoon at three o'clock from the Methodist church of this city, Rev. B. F. Brooks conducting the services, and Rev. Chas. McDermoth preaching the funeral sermon. The body was conveyed from the Whiteside Chapel to the church with a body guard of twelve veterans from Gen. Crook and Washington Post. The pall bearers, sons of veterans, were, A. J. Stewart, J. M. Lupton, Prof. Geo. Miller, Ralph Roberts, C. Davidson and Chris Beltz.

As the procession entered the church the women of the Relief Corps and G. A. R. club to the number of forty arose, and forming along the aisles, crossed flags above the heads of the pall bearers and veterans as the casket was conveyed to the altar. The services were marked by simplicity, impressive music being furnished by a special quartette. The body was conveyed to Fern Hill for interment.

Joseph Shackelford Ingram was born in Newburg, Indiana, sixty-nine years ago. His mother died when he was a few days old and he was adopted by Johnny Youngblood, a Methodist Circuit-rider, with whom he lived twenty years. He enlisted in the army July 1861, and served four years and eight months in Company 1, 25th Indiana Infantry. Mr. Ingram was under fire sixty-one times and was never wounded, being a member of Joe Mower's fighting fourth division of the 17th army corps, the army of the Tennessee. He took part in the battles of luka, Corinth, Shiloh, Vicksburg and was with Sherman on his "march to the sea." At the close of the war he was honorably discharged with the rank of Orderly Sargeant of his company.

Mr. Ingram was married to Amanda Baker at Yankeetown, Indiana in 1866. Six children were the result of this union, Mrs. Roy Coons, Councilman W. T. Ingram, Chas W. Ingram and R. R. Ingram, residents of this city, two sons John O. and Geo. W., are dead. Mr. Ingram came to Aberdeen in 1889, Mrs. Ingram having died the year before. Of late years he has spent most of his time at Westport and at his ranch on the Wishkah. He leaves considerable property which will be incorporated by the heirs. He was a man of kindly, upright nature and admired by everyone who knew him. An interesting figure at the funeral was that of Jacob Heater, whose portrait, taken with Mr. Ingram four years ago, is given above. Mr. Heater was one of Stonewall Jackson's men and his tall figure clad in confederate gray has been a familiar sight to harbor residents. He spoke briefly at the grave of his friend Ingram. The friendship of these two men was strong and a pleasant sight to all who desire that the differences of the Civil War be forgotten.
