Participant INGLISH
[Participant #E-0054] - Additional Information
  Research Notes:  
  Generation 1:  
  William INGLISH, Sr. settled in Grayson County, KY, about 1805. He evidently moved after 1810 to Butler County, KY, where he is shown on the 1820 census, and where two of his daughters were married, but seems to have returned to Grayson County thereafter. The birth order of children born to William Inglish, Sr. & Elizabeth Swope is not known with certainty, but son Joseph Inglish was the oldest.  
  Generation 2:  
  Joseph Inglish: Some secondary sources have referred to Joseph Inglish as "William Joseph Inglish," but in the documents made contemporaneously with his lifetime or within a generation thereafter, he is always shown as simply "Joseph Inglish." Documentary evidence shows that he had a brother named William Inglish, Jr., who remained in Kentucky and died there in 1847. Joseph Inglish was born at a time when the great majority of Americans did not have middle names, and it seems highly improbable that his parents would have named a second son "William" unless the elder son had died, which is not the case here.
  Joseph Inglish seemed to have accompanied or closely followed his father-in-law Bailey Anderson in moving from South Carolina to Kentucky about 1797 and then to Indiana about 1806 and then to a western area along the Red River now in Southeastern Oklahoma about 1816. After the U. S. government informed the settlers along the Red River that they were not living in Arkansas, they moved to Sevier County in that state about 1820. Joseph Inglish and his son Bailey Inglish moved to north Texas about December 25, 1835, when this region and all Texas was still part of Mexico. Both remained in Texas for the rest of their lives.
