In the matter of the estate of JONATHAN INGALLS of Watertown, Jefferson Co. NY:
On 4 April 1814, Hart Massey and Amasa Herrick completed an inventory of the property of Jonathan Ingalls. LYDIA INGALLS made affidavit to the court on 5 September 1814.
On 27 March 1834, JAMES BRINTNALL of Watertown swore in a deposition that he married LYDIA INGALLS, widow of JONATHAN INGALS, who died about the year 1814. That Jonathan died leaving minor heirs:
Heirs/next of kin:
WARD E. INGALS
James Brintnall continued that on or about the year 1818 he was appointed guardian of all the minor heirs by the Surrogate of Jefferson Co. He had settled with the said five heirs of Jonathan Ingalls as they had all reached 21 years of age. James Brintnall as guardian for the minor heirs, was holding the property in their interest in 1834. At that time, Lydia Ingals Brintnall with Titus Ives as administrators of Jonathan Ingalls' estate, determined that the then-legal age minors were entitled to about one thousand dollars.
NOTE: The court paperwork spells the name "Ingalls" while later paperwork spells the name "Ingals".
