Rev. James M. Ingram
(abt. 1826 - Sept. 4, 1870)
James Miller Ingram was a captain in the Confederate 6th Provisional Cavalry Partisan Rangers. Years after the war ended, as a self-taught minister he went to preach at a church and was murdered - shot in the back by 19 year old John M. Stone. During the Civil War, John Dudley Stone (John M.'s father) was a Union soldier killed by Ingram in retaliation for Stone having killed some Confederate soldiers in a cave along the White River. Young John M. witnessed his father's wartime killing and vowed revenge some day against Ingram.
