INGRAM, ALLEN -- In Headright Certificate No. 205 for one-third of a league of land issued to him in 1838 by the Board of Land Commissioners for Washington County it is simply stated that Mr. Ingram arrived in Texas before March 2, 1836. As a matter of fact he arrived December 20, 1835 as a member of Captain William A. O. Wadsworth's company of the Georgia Battalion. On page 5 of the army rolls in the General Land Office Mr. Ingram is listed as a former member of Captain Wadsworth's company. Opposite his name is the notation: "Left at Guadalupe". In Comptroller's Military Service Record No. 749 it is certified that Mr. Ingram enlisted in the army December 21, 1835, and was discharged at Fort Bend, the headquarters of the army May 16, 1836.
