     Stephen Ingram, who served in the U. S. Army in the second Seminole War (1835-1842), moved to Van Zandt County with his wife Elizabeth (McKleroy) and their family in 1850, building log homes on this site by the Tyler-Porter's Bluff Road. Stephen Ingram's burial in 1858 was the first in the Ingram Cemetery. He was soon joined by two granddaughters, infants of Mary (Ingram) and David Cade. The cemetery land was given to the descendants of Stephen Ingram by his son James in 1897. From a count of 56 graves in 1997, there are two Civil War veterans (sons of Stephen Ingram), four veterans of World Wars I and II, and two Korean War veterans. (1998) Incise on base: Polly L. Martin, Historian
