The Inman's Of History.

The other day I was received a mail telling me thank for some of the information I had just put up, I was working on a surname ( Bailey ) page at the time. Then I happen to notice his name ( Inman ), I thought how unusual, and as I was going to need a new name for my next page I decided his, Those of you Inman’s who see and read this page will find it helpful, and was enjoyable to read.

Revolutionary War & War of 1812.

Note. I know some of you had Bailey’s ancestors in the Revolutionary War & War of 1812. And you would like to have some information on them. I get this kind of information from the pension rolls of the United State and as it's so vast I could not list every State here, so this will be a look up. If you would like to look for a ancestor write to me, with his name and the State & County he died in, if you know them. My address can be found in my profile.

Pennsylvania Biographies.

JOHN W. INMAN, merchant, Cannelton, was born in this county in 1840. His grandfather, Henry Inman, came from east of the Allegheny mountains, and was one of the first to settle west of the Ohio river. He died at the age of ninety years. He had three sons and two daughters. The eldest son, Abraham, married Elizabeth Thatcher, and by her had seven children, of whom John W. is the eldest son. Abraham was reared to agricultural pursuits, was a cabinet maker by trade, and afterward a farmer. He died on his farm of 175 acres near the headwaters of Brady’s run, aged seventy-six years. John W. was reared on the home farm, and remained there until twenty-two years of age. He was married in 1862 to Hannah Y., daughter of William Edwards, and they have seven children: William G., Elizabeth, Clyde Maud, William Henry, Harrie, Raymond and Leland. Mr. Inman learned the carpenter’s trade, which he followed for thirty-two years. Since 1885 he has been a merchant at Cannelton, where he is also postmaster. He is a member of the Baptist church; politically a Democrat.

NELSON INMAN, carpenter and painter, Fallston, was born in Chippewa township. His parents, Abraham and Elizabeth (Thacker) Inman, were natives of Beaver county and of English and German origin. The father and grandfather were farmers, the latter a soldier in the war of 1812 in Captain Henry’s Company. The family were among the earliest settlers of Beaver County, and were here when the Indians were numerous in the vicinity. Our subject’s uncle was killed by the Indians in that township. Nelson, who is the sixth in a family of eight children, was reared in Chippewa township, and early in life learned the carpenter’s trade, afterward taking up painting. He now works at both trades and resides in the borough of Fallston, where he has a neat and substantial residence. In 1861 he enlisted in the 134th Regiment P. V., in Company I. He was in several battles, among them being Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Antietam, and was honorably discharged at the close of the war. Returning home he went to the oil regions of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and engaged in drilling wells for six years. For five years he was at Burning Springs, W. Va. Returning to Beaver county he followed farming for a time, and since 1872 has worked at his trade. He was married, in 1867, to Elizabeth Jane, daughter of Thomas and Nancy (Ayers) Small. Mr. Inman is a Democrat in politics and has served as school director. He is a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge and encampment.

Numbers 137. Report of Brigadier General George Sykes,
U. S. Army, commanding Second Division, of the battle of Gaines' Mill, engagement at Turkey Bridge, and battle of Malvern Hill.
Lieutenant Henry Inman, Seventeenth Infantry, acting commissary of subsistence, was
zealous, gallant, and active. His duties, constant and dangerous, were performed just as I desired.
---------------------------------
HDQRS. 88TH AND 74TH ILLINOIS INFANTRY VOLUNTEERS, Duck River, December 21, 1864.

CAPTAIN: I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by this command in the battles of Nashville on the 15th and 16th instant:

The regiment was not immediately engaged, but moved into position at different points on the line with its brigade and was under fire much of the time. In the first day's engagement a detail from the command was upon the skirmish line under direction of Lieutenant-Colonel Boone, division officer of the day, and conducted itself well. In the afternoon volunteers were called for to pass in rear of a rebel battery, and, if possible, capture it. Some twenty were engaged in the work, and the result was a success.

Many prisoners came into our lines during the two days, but it will be impossible to estimate correctly their number, nor am I inclined to claim them as captures of the regiment. The casualties were: Privates Josiah Inman, Company D.
-----------------------------------
Shiloh.
Company A- Alexander Inman, killed.

Great blog! I've got a few Inmans that I'm interested in learning of their Civil War background. There are 2 brothers, Peter W. Inman (1835-1865) and Joseph Inman (1838-1865). Peter was in the Union Army, Co. I, Missouri 8th Infantry (I believe). Joe was a Confederate soldier, Co. B, Harrell's Battalion, AR Cavalry, Adams Regiment. Died of pneumonia. Don't know how Peter died. Also have a James H. Inman, also a confederate soldier, who died a Gratiot St. Prison in St. Louis and is buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Any more information on these (or others) would be appreciated. Also, I'm desperately seeking photos...if you have any or know where I can find some, I'd also appreciate that. Thanks for your help. -- Hank Inman

Hi Henry, Peter Wesley enlisted August 10, 1862, last present Feb. 29, 1864.
Joseph Inman ( inmon )enlisted March 2, 1863, from Madison Co.

As for James H. Inman there were just too many to look up, but there were three in the Missouri regiments, they were in the First Co. C., Fourth Co. A., and the Fifth Co. A.
You may be able to find more on them by going to the site called ( Find a Grave ) If their on the list you will learn about their family? there may also be photos of them if your lucky.
