INGRAHAM'S TAVERN, UPPER RICHLAND COUNTY, SC
Seeking information on Ingrham's Tavern located in 1815 approximately ten miles north of Columbia, SC on what is now highway 321 towards Winnsboro,SC. Ingrham may have purchased the land from the heirs of James Massey, the original grantee. Most of the original grant was purchased in the 1880's by the William Henry Sligh family.
I found records that mention an "Old Stage Coach Inn" having been located on the Sligh property and that there was a dilapidated structure associated with the "Inn" on the Sligh property. I believe I have also located the marked grave of James Massey and two others beside him that appear to be earlier graves. The building was barely standing in the nineteen teens and the graves were nearby next to three old apple trees.
The 1815-1825 Mills Atlas shows Ingraham's Tavern very near this present day location. Wondering if this is the building that was still visible in the early 1900's. If so I was told recently that the graves are still visible. I could not find them last week because of the snow on the ground, but I know where they are supposed to be.
