INGRIM was born in Fayette County, Ohio, October 12, 1834; came to this county in the spring of 1843; two years later, went to Kewanna (Fulton County) and resided there about ten years, receiving about three months schooling each winter; thence he went to Logansport (Cass County), then to Kansas City, then to St. Louis and then to Peoria, Illinois, where he served an apprenticeship on the DAILY NEWS for one year. He then traveled as a "jour" to Louisville, back to Indianapolis, where he worked on the JOURNAL, then to St. Louis, where he secured "cases" on the DEMOCRAT; thence he went to MEMPHIS, where he worked on the dailies, and was for a time foreman of the AVALANCHE; thence to Grenada, Mississippi, where he had charge of the WEEKLY LOCOMOTIVE; he then worked on the Panola (Mississippi) STAR, then returned to the AVALANCHE, at Memphis; thence he went to Vicksburg, in December, 1862, and worked on the WHIG until every able-bodied printer was forced out in advance of a file of soldiers to do guard duty or work in the trenches. There he remained until the close of the siege, July 4, 1863, when he came North and reached Winamac January 1, 1864. He then set type on the CHICAGO TRIBUNE, INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL and CINCINNATI GAZETTE until February 16, 1865, when he returned to Winamac and purchased the DEMOCRAT office from HON. GEORGE BURSON, and continued its publication until 1870, when he sold a half-interest to DR. F. B. THOMAS, and in 1871 sold the remaining half to BEN FRANK. He then took his family to Memphis, where he remained until February, 1872, when he returned to Winamac, and on the 7th of September, 1878, founded the JOURNAL, a seven-column folio, which has, in his hands, proved a success."
