I have some comments for Ingels/Ingles researchers. I will comment on two topics.

1. One is the relationship of a Mary Ramey to George Ingels. She was supposed to be from Huntingdon county in PA. My research shows that there are almost no Rameys mentioned there. However, there are some Ramseys who might be better prospects. I have to say that the lack of evidence, other than some vague long ago assertion, leaves me unconvinced.

I have said this elsewhere, but I will repeat it. Many Ingles/Ingels researchers want to be identified with the Ingles in the book follow the River. I have read the book and It is a good story but contains little if any genealogical information. However, there is a society of the descendents of the heroine of that book. I reviewed a list of those people and could not find a single name that was familiar to me. So if you are descended from Joseph Ingels who married Nancy Crooks, I do not think there is any relationship. The father of Joseph is George Ingels who is supposed to have married Mary Ramey. So, I am dubious about who Mary Ramey was and I reject the relationsip with the heroine of Follow The River.

Sorry to be a spoilsport, but that is the way I see it. If anyone has any factual data, I would be most happy to have that data.

Best to all Ingels/Ingles researchers
