Art, Just for reference, I am not, as far as I know descended from the Inglis family, but am from families in the same area of Jackson Co Al. My Grandmother was born in Carnes, where the Samuel Inglis family lived. Sammie Brown and I corresponded on other damilies she wrote about. Her book was puublished privately, but is well researched.
If you will contact me by e-mail <firstname.lastname@example.org> and give me your address, I will copy and send you the several pages of information on the Inglis and Renshaw families in the Jackson area. It's really too much to type out
Briefly, she gives Samuel Brown Inglis' parents as Alexander and Jean,probably Brown. He arrived in America on the ship "Fanny" in 1773 to Maryland. His brother followed ion the ship "Adventure" in 1775. By the 1780s Alexander was in Rowan Co NC married to Jean.In his 1796 will hw gave his property to her and his sons Samuel Brown, Alexander, Andrew and Josiah. The will was never probated, the reason believed to be that both Alexander and Jean came to Alabama with Samuel and family and are probably the older male and female living with them in the 1830 census Jackson Co. The Renshaw parents were deceased by then.. Alexander and Jean probably died before 1840
A series of losses struck Samuel's family in the 1850's. They are detailed in the book. All are buried in the Mud Creek or Old Inglis Cemetery in Jackson. (You might find listings on the Jackson Co. site USGenWeb Fay)

He is right next door to my GGGrandmother, Isabella Patton Womack, widow of Abner. They are the only Englis/Inglis family listed. I own the printed census.
If you prefer I can continue to send details from the book. It will probably take as long as getting copies and mailing though. Glad to help. Fay
