|Death: ||Jan. 21, 1875|
"Ingram, Rev. John, was born in
Toronto, Ont., in 1840, and began to
preach with the Methodists. He joined
the Free Baptists in July, 1866, and was
ordained the following January. He
took charge of the Ionia, Dexter and
Loudon churches, which were greatly
strengthened under his labors. He then
moved to Woodstock, and, while devoting
himself to study, preached to the
Zorra churches. A Bible class of
seventy-five members evinced his success.
The studies in school completed,
and engaging as home missionary, he
organized a church at Napier, enjoyed
a revival at Duttan, and was taking up
the work at Bloomsburgh, when, after a
sudden and brief illness, he died, Jan.
21, 1875, aged 35 years. His death, at
what seemed to be the beginning of
great usefulness, was deeply lamented."
