Death of Charles Ingram
Charles Ingram, 71, a well-known farmer who lived in the last house in East Dover on the Marlboro road, died Friday morning of a heart disease. He had an attack of grip last fall and had been in failing health all winter. He was born in Newfane and was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Orman Ingram. In 1883 he married Sarah Staples Barnes of Greenfield, Mass., a daughter of Nelson Staples, who formerly lived in Vermont. During the greater part of his life he worked in Newfane, Dover and Marlboro, and 13 years ago he bought the old Joseph Howe place, where he had since lived.
Mr. Ingram served in the Civil war, was wounded and received a pension. Besides his wife he leaves one sister, Mrs. John D. Blake of Minneapolis, Minn. A brother, John, died in Maine several years ago, and a sister, Sarah, was married to George Hastings of Newfane and after his death to Andrew Horton of Brattleboro. She is not now living. Mr. Ingram was a good neighbor and straightforward citizen, and his wife has the sympathy of the community.
The funeral was held at the home at 1 o'clock Sunday, Rev. E. C. Clark of South Newfane officiating. A delegation was present from Lawton post, G. A. R., of Wilmington, of which Mr. Ingram was a member, and H. A. Carpenter of Newfane, a veteran, was present. Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Turner of this place sang and the burial took place in the Dover Centre cemetery under the ritual of the Grand Army.
