Lieutenant John Ingersoll (1788 – 1815) married Nancy Gage (1788-1845), daughter of Uriah Gage and Hannah Tinney (m Jan 1814) in what is now known as Haverhill, MA. Nancy moved to Bradford (West Bradford was annexed by Haverhill in 1897) with her son John Gage Ingersoll after her husband John died in Boston Harbor of yellow fever in 1815. John died ‘at sea’ in 1815 in service of his country and did not live to see his only son, John Gage Ingersoll. A diary that was kept by John survives.
