From "The Bench and Bar of Wisconsin, History and Biography" by Parker McCobb Reed, 1882: "Lumley Ingledew is a Wisconsin lawyer in Chicago, and has been successful; has attained to it in a quiet and unostentatious way by his industry and energy. The truly successful man is one who makes the mostof his abilities and opportunities when turned into the channel of his inclinations and native fitness and is faithful to himself and native fitness and is faithful to himself and to his early formed purposes, which is true of him. He was born in Bradford, England, in 1837; his parents emigrated to Troy, Walworth County, Wisconsin, in 1845, and engaged in farming, where Lumley worked on the farm until sixteen years of age, when he set about obtaining an education; entered Milton College, and graduated in 1861, after which he read law in Janesville, with the now Judge H.S. conger and Henry K. Whiton, and was admitted to the bar at Madison in 1863, and was immediately thereafter commissioned by President Lincoln Commissary of Subsistence with rank of Captain, and was with the Army of the Cumberland during the War, with the exception of nine months when he was prisoner of war; part of the time in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was one of the six hundred Union officers placed by the confederate authorities under the fire of our own batteries during the siege and bombardment of that city, and remained so exposed for three months to protect the buildings. He was promoted by Lincoln to the rank of Brevet Major in the same branch of the service, making an honorable and creditable record; mustered out of the service in October, 1865, when he went to Chicago and took a course in bookkeeping in Eastman's Business College, and was subsequently principal of book keeping and commercial law in that institution for eighteen months when, in 1867, he engaged in the real estate and law business, and has been so engaged since. While in Janesville, he was one of the originators and promoters of the Young Men's Literary Society, and was as he now is, a man of excellent habits, and highly respected."
From THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, October 9, 1881: " Lumley Ingledew.
