Joshua Ingalls, Aged Covington Resident, Dies [SRGP 82252]

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\cw100.gif

 Joshua Ingalls, died at Covington, on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 1929.  He was born January 2, 1838.  One more month and four days would have made him 91 years of age.  Mr. Ingalls leaves a widow, Alice Culver Ingalls; one brother, Electrus Ingalls; two daughters, Mrs. Carrie Crooks, of Covington, Mrs. Stella Yaudes, of Liberty, besides a number of grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
 Mr. Ingalls was born in Williamson, Wayne County, New York, coming to Tioga County, Pennsylvania, with his parents, Erastus and Elizabeth Ingalls, when only three years of age, settling at what was later known as Kelleytown, a mile north of the Boro line.  At the age of fifteen he went to Wellsboro and entered the office of the Tioga County Eagle, published by James P. Magill, to learn the printer’s trade.  During this time he also attended school at the old Academy on the hill, where the Catholic Church is now located.  He remained at the County Seat for two years, earning his board and attending school.  But young Joshua’s father was one of those old-time people who didn’t go much on “book-learning,” and at the end of two years thought he should be earning more money to help support the family, which was a large one – consisting of father, mother, and thirteen children – and he was taken away from the printing trade and put to work at anything where he could earn an honest dollar.
 During the fall and winter in which his eighteenth birthday occurred, he worked in the Covington glass factory, first as a “shoving boy” and afterwards as a “tender” on a blower.  His blower was Thomas Gabeler, who some of the older Covington people will remember.  In the fall of 1861 he went to Washington, D.C., and hired out to drive team for the United States Government.  His team consisted of six mules, and he only worked at this about three months when he threw up his job, and returned to Tioga County.  In the spring of 1862 he hired out to work on a farm at Cherry Flats for Col. N.A. Elliott, who was once postmaster of Mansfield and the father of Dr. Fred Elliott and Hon. M.F. Elliott, all of Mansfield.
 On August 8, 1962, he enlisted to fight for Uncle Sam, and was one of the Company of which A.J. Schofield, of Wellsboro, was the captain.  Mr. Ingalls’ name was first on the list of over one hundred boys from Tioga County who gave themselves for “Old Glory.”  These boys were taken in wagons to Troy, where they took the train to Harrisburg, where they remained a few weeks drilling.  From the State Capital, this company, which had been designated as Co. A, 149th Regiment, Bucktail Brigade, proceeded to Washington, arriving there on August 31, 1862.  Mr. Ingalls’ first duty there was guard duty, and this he continued to do until February 15, 1863, when his company was ordered to the Army of the Potomac, arriving at Belle Plain on the 16th.  Their next move was on April 20, 1863, to Port Conway, on the Rappahannock River, about twenty miles below Fredericksburg, which was a night’s march through a violent rain storm.
 On April 29th they were ordered to Pollock’s Mills to support the first division which succeeded in crossing the river.  Here occurred this regiment’s first battle, or skirmish.  From there they were ordered to Chancellorsville, where they were again in battle.  From there they went to White Oak Church, where they made camp.
 At this camp Mr. Ingalls was taken seriously ill and was placed in a hospital.  He was absent from his regiment until the Battle of the Wilderness, in which he took part.  The next battle was Laurel Hill, in which his brother, Elihu Ingalls, was severely wounded.  Then came the engagements at Spotsylvania, then North Anna River, all coming thick and fast.  Mr. Ingalls was shot through the lungs at this battle.  He laid on the battlefield six hours before he received any attention whatever, and at the end of this a surgeon and his assistants came along and discovered him lying there on the ground.  The surgeon examined him thoroughly, then said to his assistants; “No use bothering with this fellow, he’s as good as dead now!”  Mr. Ingalls was alive enough to understand what the doctor said, and he roused up and whispered so that they could hear what he said; “Damn you, I bet I live longer than you do!”  And he did.
 Some of his comrades helped him off the battlefield, and he was taken to Port Conway and from there he was taken by boat to Washington and sent to Finlay Hospital.  From there he was transferred to Germantown Hospital, Philadelphia, and later to Alexandria.
 In July, 1864, he was granted a furlough for thirty days to go home.  On his way home he met his father going to Washington to see his brother, Elihu, who was in a serious condition from a gunshot wound in his leg, in which gangrene had set in.  On arriving home Mr. Ingalls found the family greatly afflicted, his brother, Electrus, had come home with the small pox and nearly all the other members of the family then at home were down sick with varioloid.  But for all that, Mr. Ingalls enjoyed being home again with his brothers and sisters and parents.
 He returned to Alexandria for a while, and was again granted a furlough to come home to vote for Abraham Lincoln in the fall of 1864.  His wound, however, bothered him so much that he was unable to do anything but light duty, but he remained at Alexandria until after the end of the war.  He received his final discharge on June 5, 1865, having served his country 33 months and 17 days.
 Mr. Ingalls has never been in good health since he was shot.  The bullet passed through one lung, and clear through his body.  Some time after he had been taken to the hospital he told the doctor in charge there that something was wrong and upon examination the surgeon fished out a piece of his army coat from the wound, about 2 x 5 inches in size, which has been carried inside by the bullet.
 After his return at the close of the war Mr. Ingalls worked around by day’s work, doing whatever he could get to do.  He later on went into partnership with his brother, Elihu Ingalls.  They purchased a piece of wood land near Elk Run and engaged in the work of clearing it.  He lived with his brother and family, they worked together until 1870, when they dissolved partnership, each taking half of the land.  It was at this time that Mr. Ingalls’ wound again became troublesome, and finding that he could not stand hard work, he started in as a traveling salesman.  He traveled through Tioga, Bradford, and Lycoming Counties, and also in the New York Counties of Steuben and Chemung.
 On June 20, 1872, Mr. Ingalls was married to Miss Alice M. Culver, and in September they went to housekeeping in the home he formerly owned with his brother, Elihu, and which he afterwards purchased.  In January, 1874, he moved with his family to Kansas, where he and his family, now consisting of wife and three little girls, lived from hand-to-mouth, part of the time nearly starving.
 October 3, 1880, his health failing so that he could not work, he sold what little property he had acquired, and purchasing a covered wagon, loaded in his family and started back east.  They arrived at Vedersburg, Indiana, where Mr. Ingalls had a sister residing.  They remained there for a couple of weeks, selling his team and traveling outfit and taking the railroad train for Covington, where they landed in November, 1880.  He resided in Mansfield from about 1885 to 1896, when he moved back to Covington.  Since then he has lived in different places about the county.  Mr. Ingalls has been a member of the Methodist Disciple and Baptist Churches and has always been a conscientious and honorable man.
 In September, 1910, Mr. and Mrs. Ingalls visited the historic battlefield at Gettysburg, where he met several of his old comrades, and enjoyed the visit immensely.  They went to Williamsport, August 17, 1911, to attend the reunion of his company; they were also in Rochester the same year, attending the National Encampment.  The funeral was held Sunday, at 1:30 at his late home, and 2:30 at the Church of Christ, Rev. M.S. Blair officiating; interment in Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield.  The Austin-Cox Post American Legion had charge of the services at the grave.

 "JOE" JAQUISH KILLED IN AUTO ACCIDENT  (SRGP 55135)
The community was saddened last week to learn of the accidental death of Joseph R. Jaquish, who was instantly killed Wednesday night about nine o’clock in an automobile accident near the overpass at Columbia Cross Roads on the Elmira-Troy road. Mr. and Mrs. Jaquish were driving toward Elmira and in trying to avoid hitting a box in the road he failed to make the turn and crashed into the guard posts. The force of the impact sheared off four posts and the machine rolled over the steep embankment at this point coming to rest headed toward Troy. Mr. Jaquish was thrown through the window on his wife’s side and was instantly killed. His skull was fractured and his neck was broken. Mrs. Jaquish was cut and badly bruised, but managed to crawl through the window and run to the nearest neighbors for help. Mr. Jaquish was born in Covington Township, April 2, 1907. He was a graduate of Mansfield High School, spent one year at the University of Pittsburgh and two years at Mansfield State Teachers College. On Nov. 6, 1931 he was married to Doris F. Soper of Mansfield. For the past eight years he was a well-known employee of the Cross Trail Restaurant in Mansfield. His pleasant smile and cheery disposition were characteristics of his life. He not only will be missed by his wife and family, but by his friends and neighbors who bore loving tribute to him by many beautiful flowers. The deceased is survived by his wife, Doris Soper Jaquish; his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph S. Jaquish of Mansfield, Pa.; a brother Dr. Charles Jaquish of New Castle; Mrs. Russell Marvin, Covington; Mrs. Mary Smith, Mansfield; Mrs. George Michaels, Throop, Pa.; Mrs. Harry Miller, Lancaster, Pa. The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the residence, 319 North Main St., Mansfield with an unusually large attendance. Interment was made in the Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield. The Rev. D. W. Bayliss officiated. The people of the community extend their sympathy to the bereaved family in the loss which they have sustained.

--Last Friday afternoon during the violent thunderstorm Mr. Thomas J. JELLIFF, (SRGP 18992) the station agent, and Mr. Barney Whittaker were standing upon the depot platform at Canoe Camp under the telegraph wire. There was a blinding flash, and Mr. Jelliff fell forward dead. The boards of the platform under his feet were considerably splintered. The body was taken to his home across the track. Not a mark of the electric fluid was to be found upon the body, but the neck was somewhat bruised by the fall. Mr. Whittaker, who was standing within two feet of Mr. Jelliff, was not affected by the shock in the least. Mr. Jelliff leaves a wife and two daughters. He was a man about forty five years old. He had been station agent seventeen years and was well liked by all who knew him. We understand he held and accident insurance policy for $2,000. [Buried Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield] [July/August 1885]

Instantly Killed. Thomas J. Jelliff, (SRGP 18992) station agent at Canoe Camp, two miles above this boro, was struck by lightning and instantly killed while standing on the depot platform during the severe storm last Friday afternoon. Barney Whittaker, who was within two feet of the unfortunate man at that time, escaped injury. The platform was shattered under Mr. Jelliff's feet, but no marks of the deadly fluid was left on his person.. Every effort was made to restore him to consciousness, but his death had been instantaneous.

Forester Fatally Shot
Frank D. Jerald Mistaken for a Deer and Shot by Arthur Callahan
JERALD - Frank D. Jerald, [SRGP 84662] State Forester, whose headquarters was at Slate Run, was fatally shot in mistake for a deer last week Tuesday morning while hunting on Navie Run, about two miles below Slate Run. He was taken to the Williamsport Hospital on Wednesday night and died at that institution Thursday night about 8:20 o'clock as the result of the injuries he received. Mr. Jerald was hunting with Callahan and two others. He was up on the mountain side, working his way down, while the other three were below in a hollow. Callahan thought he saw a deer in the brush, sighted his gun and a few seconds later fired only to find that he had shot his friend. Mr. Jerald's cries instantly brought help and his companions quickly improvised a litter and carried him to Slate Run, where a physician from Leetonia was summoned, arriving quickly. The doctor dressed the injury and made the forester comfortable until the night train when he was taken to the hospital. Mr. Jerald was hit by a stray bullet while hunting in the woods near Slate Run a year ago. That accident occurred on November 17 [1913]. The bullet entered his leg above the knee. He quickly recovered from that injury. At the hospital it was said that while at first the injuries of the forester were not believed to be really serious, it later developed that the heavy and high powered rifle had sent a ball from below, which striking Mr. Jerald as he was descending the mountain, had passed through the liver, along the ribs and come out back of the shoulder blade. The wound caused severe internal hemorrhage which was the cause of death. Mr. Jerald was well known at Slate Run and throughout that section of Pine Creek and had many friends. He leaves a wife [Janet Zacharias Jerald]. The remains were taken to Mansfield on Friday and funeral was held from that place. A coroner's jury, sitting, Friday morning on the case, exonerated Mr. Callahan from blame and decided that the shooting was accidental. On Saturday the District Attorney made a technical charge against Mr. Callahan with having killed the forester, despite the fact that he was exonerated by coroner's jury. Callahan was arrested on Saturday and was taken to Williamsport and placed in the county jail. Monday afternoon he was arraigned before Alderman Paul on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. He was held for a hearing next Saturday afternoon. - Wellsboro Gazette, November 19, 1914
