On March 22, 1839, the legislature declared Caledonia to be a separate township. It was probably named after a town in New York. By 1842, the township had expanded into it's present day boundaries. The first settler to the township was John Swain, from Chenanago, NY in 1834. He was a carpenter and preacher, who held the first worship services in the township. A member of his family was the first to be born in the township in 1836. He sold his farm on Kerby Rd. after his wife had died and been buried there in 1836 and moved to Vernon. Captain John Davids, who had been the agent for the Shiawassee County Seat Co. bought the farm and gave up his position of agent to become a farmer. Other first settlers were, Philo Rockwell and Stephen Hawkins. Rockwell didn't remain in the area very long. Hawkins built the first County Courthouse, several homes, the first school known as Hawkins School and the first bridge known as Hawkins Bridge. Titus Yerkes and his wife had come from New York and Pennsylvania in 1849. He was a miller and had a dam built across the Shiawassee River. Lemuel Eddy built a grist mill known as Valley Mills. The first township meeting was held in 1839 in the home of Alexander McArthur, who was elected Supervisor. Samuel Warren was secretary and treasurer. D.P. Congdon, Alexander McArthur and W.R. Seymour were assessors. S.N. Warren, McArthur, and John Davids were the school inspectors. Stephen Hawkins, Ninion Clark and John Davids were the highway commissioners. Justices of the Peace were Samuel N. Warren, McArthur, Davids and Don C. Griswold. James Thompson of Jefferson Co., NY, came in 1857 and with the help of another settler named Moe, built a cabin on 160 acres in section 14. He later brought his family and established a school for his children. The area surrounding the farm later became the Caledonia Coal Mines. Samuel Kerby, with his family of 12 children came from Canada in 1870. He was a preacher. Samuel Kerby Jr. operated a grain elevator on their farm in section 24. In 1847, the county purchased an 80 acre farm to be used as the county poor farm. Many elderly people lived there in their last days and a cemetery is located on the property in section 32 on Lyons Rd. Corunna is the county seat and is located in Caledonia township. Early settlers of Corunna were Alexander McArthur, Andrew Mack, J.C. Schwartz, John McDonnell, S.B. Miner, Horace Comstock, John Davids, and Nelson Ferry. Mr. Ferry was a teacher and surveyor and taught at the first school in Corunna. Elected officials for Corunna in 1858 were A. McArthur, B.O. Williams, E.F. Wade, A.A. Belden, C.W. Coe, George Wilcox, P.S. Lyman and Daniel Bush. Joel K. Akrim was the first postmaster. Other early pioneers were Luke Parsons, Hugh McCrudy, Andrew Parsons, Silas and Daniel Ball, A.H. Beach, John Frasier, James Wheeler, Chauncey Hurlburt, John Ingersoll, Henry Gilbert and Todd Kincaid.


The city of Owosso is the largest city in Shiawassee County and is located in Owosso Township. When the county was first surveyed the land was inhabited by Chief Wassa and his band of Chippewa Indians. The city was named for the chief with the original name being Owasso. This was changed to present day Owosso. Benjiman Williams had traveled to Owosso in 1833 with Chief Little Bear. When he returned to Shiawassee Twp. he talked his brother, Alfred into buying land in Owosso. They purchased land in section 24 in august 1833. Elias Comstock and Lewis Findley from Oakland Co. were the next to purchase land in 1835. They purchased in sections of 13 and 24. Soon many families were coming from Oakland county to settle. It was in July 1835 when Elias Comstock, Lewis Findley, his daughter Lucinda, her husband Kilburn Bedell, John Overton, his wife and child, David Van Wormer and his family came to Owosso. Lewis Findley built a small cabin for them all to share until others could be built. A double cabin was built for the Van Wormers and Overtons on the river bank across from what is now the City Hall. Mr. Bedell built in section 12. Mr. Bedell is believed to be the first white man to die in the township. He took ill on a trip to the Exchange in Shiawassee Twp. and died shortly after returning home. He was buried on his farm near the river. A historical marker is located on the property near his grave. Mr. Findley had the first farm in the township and was active in politics, he later moved to New Haven. He is buried in the West Haven cemetery beside his wife, Lucy. Their tombstones bear witness to them as first pioneers. The city of Owosso, Mr. Findley and his family have a special meaning to my family. He was my husband's 3rd great-grandfather. After Mr. Bedell died, Lucinda married Andrew Madison. It is from them my husband descends. The cabin of Elias Comstock still stands today and is located in Heritage Park on Curwood Dr. Mr. Comstock was born in 1799 in New London, CT. He was the first Justice and later served as Supervisor, County Judge and Probate Judge. He help establish the first school. In 1836, the Williams brothers built the first dam across the river for water power. They started a store known as Williams Trading Post. Silas and Daniel Ball also became active business men in Owosso. Daniel was the first postmaster in 1838. The first city elections on April 4, 1859 elected the follow men: Amos Gould, Mayor; John Ingersoll, Clerk; Daniel Lyon, Treasurer; E.W. Barnes, Supervisor of the First District; Elisha Leach, Supervisor of the Second District; Charles M. Moses, Charles L. Goodhue, Alderman of the First Ward; Daniel L. Thrope, Thomas D. Dewey, Alderman of the Second Ward; John Gutekunst, George R. Black, Alderman of the Third ward; Stillman J. Harding, Eli D. Gregory, Alderman of the Fourth Ward; Ira Merell, Justice of the Peace for Second District; George K. Newcombe, Amos M. Kellogg, School Inspectors; Daniel Wait, M.W. Quackenbush, Directors of the Poor; Robert Hodgkins, of the First District and Ephriam Gould of the Second District, Constables. Two of Owosso's most famous people are Thomas Dewey, who almost became President of the United States and James Oliver Curwood, beloved author of many books and movies. The is a castle in Owosso that was built by Mr. Curwood. It also stands in Heritage Park on Curwood Dr. Mr. Curwood used the castle for a studio. Today it is a museum open year round. Owosso township was formed in 1937. On May 1, 1837 a meeting was held at the home of Daniel Ball in Owosso Twp. At that time the township covered the whole northern have of Shiawassee County. As other townships were formed and settled Owosso township came to it's present size. The officers elected at the first township meeting were: Supervisor, Lewis Findley; Clerk, Alfred L. Williams; Assessors, Daniel Ball, Samuel Warren and Abram Wilkinson; Highway commissioners, John B. Griswold, Henry S. Smith, Jehial Dunning; Justices of Peace, Daniel Ball, Elias Comstock, Alfred Williams, John Davids; School Inspectors, Elias Comstock, Alfred Williams, Samuel N. Warren; Constables, Henry S. Smith, Jehial Dunning, Abraham T. Wilkinson; Poormasters, Henry S. Smith, Samuel Wilkinson and Lewis Findley. The townships earliest settlement was founded by Rueben Griggs, who came from Henderson in Jefferson Co. NY with his brother-in-law Abram Wilkinson. They built one log cabin to house the two families and their five children for the first winter. Ezra Mason came next in 1836 from Rochester, NY. He brought his pregnant wife, two daughters and his brother-in-law and his family with him. They shared a cabin the first winter. His son, Ezra, was born Nov. 3, 1839 and was the first white child to be born in the township. Apollos Dewey from Vermont came with his family in 1839 to land he had purchased in 1835. He became a business man in the city of Owosso. A small hamlet, named Mungerville was founded by Philander Munger. He became the first postmaster in 1864. The town was later renamed Burton. The town was home to State Senator James McBride. At one time there were many businesses in Burton, however little remains today.


[The History of] Shrewsbury


D. Hamilton Hurd, (ed.), History of Worcester County Masachusetts with Historical Sketches of many of its Pioneers and Prominent Men (Philadelphia: J. W. Lewis & Co., 1889), vol. I, pp. 780-810. with corrections to the text added by Hiram Harlow; computer transcription by Robert J. Cormier.


The three years within which Shrewsbury was required to have at least forty families and an orthodox minister began to run November 2, 1717. The forty families were here in due season, but the first minister, Rev. Job Cushing, was not settled till December 4, 1723, more than six years after the time began to run. It would seem from the church records that the church was organized and a covenant adopted at Mr. Cushing's ordination. Let us note in passing that this covenant does not contain any credo unless the following be regarded as such: "We resolve to make the blessed Scriptures our platform, whereby We may discern the blessed mind of Christ and not the new-framed inventions of men," a favorite form of words with those who did not wish either to commit themselves to dogmatic theology nor to repel others from uniting with them by an ironclad creed. This liberal covenant, probably drawn up by Mr. Cushing himself, closely resembles that of many of the early churches of New England, commencing with the earliest, whose platform, brought in the "Mayflower" and landed in 1620 on Plymouth Rock, remains unchanged in any clause or letter, the creed of the liberal First Church of Plymouth, to this day. It does not appear that at Mr. Cushing's ordination or afterwards any question was raised as to his being an "orthodox minister," within the meaning of those words in the act of the General Court, but tradition is that some of the brethren suspected him of favoring the Arminian heresy. During his ministry only one controversy arose of which any memory has reached our times. This was not theological. One Simon Goddard, who came to Shrewsbury in 1731, from Framingham, with the aid of his two brothers, who were here before him, and five or six others, whom he converted to his views, kept Mr. Cushing and the whole church in hot water for more than ten years about ruling elders. According to Brother Goddard, it was indispensable that every Christian church should have two elders to rule both it and the minister, and he wrote to Mr. Cushing and the church long letters about it and talked about it till one wonders at the long-suffering patience of pastor and people with such a crank and such a bore as he was. This contemptible controversy finally resulted in an ecclesiastical council, but what was the "result" of the council was unknown at the time and has never been discovered to this day. Rev. Job Cushing, whose father and grandfather were both named Matthew Cushing, and the latter of whom came from Norfolk, England, in 1688, was born at Hingham, July l9, 1694, and graduated at Harvard College in 1714. He was a farmer as well as minister, and at the moment of his death he was at work in his field binding sheaves of grain, where, without sickness or premonition, he fell dead. The minister's lot, No. 22, laid out on Meeting-house Hill when it was expected that the meeting house would be built there, being found after it was built on Rocky Plain too remote for the minister to live on, Mr. Cushing bought twenty acres and one hundred and fifteen rods of William Taylor, adjoining on the east side the meeting- house lot or Common, and built his house where Mr. Arunah Harlow now lives. Mr. Cushing also bought of Nahum Ward fifty six acres and seventy-one rods on the south side of the road opposite hit house. What with these purchases and his lot (No. 22), "made up the full of ninety acres," and second and third division lands received "in right of his lot" he became in time the owner of considerable real estate, which he cleared and tilled as well as any of the other original farmers of Shrewsbury. A portion of Mr. Cushing's land on both sides of the Great Road, together with a moiety of Jordan's Pond laid out to him as second division land "equal," say the records, "to six acres of valuable meadow," has descended to his great-grandson, Mr. Josiah G. Stone, and still remains in his possession. At the time of Mr. Cushing's settlement in Shrewsbury he was twenty-nine years old, and at his death, which occurred August 6, 1760, he was sixty-six. In the interval between the decease of Mr. Cushing and the settlement of his successor, the church covenant was reenforced by the addition of the Calvinistic tenets. After the words in the extract before given, "new-framed inventions of men," were added the following, "And yet we are of the judgment that the whole of the well-known Westminster Catechism as explained by Calvinistic divines, contains a just summary of Christian doctrine as revealed in God's Holy Word," and after the name of Christ was inserted the words, "whom we believe to be God, equal with the Father and the Holy Ghost." Among the minority who protested and voted against these additions to the fair original, as incongruous therewith as patch of sow's ear upon silk purse, I note the name of Colonel Job Cushing, true to the teachings of his sainted father. Before settling or even calling another minister, being jealous not only of ruling elders, but of the minister as well, the church voted not to settle any minister with power to negative its vote. At the same meeting when this vote was passed the church extended a call to Rev. Joseph Sumner as pastor, and his ordination took place June 23, 1762. For want of room in the old meeting-house, and because it was not considered safe to crowd the old house with a large audience, the ordination services were conducted in the open air on a platform erected on the Common. Rev. Joseph Sumner was born at Pomfret, Conn., June 30, 1740, being son of Deacon Samuel Sumner, of that town, and graduated at Yale College in 1759. The degree of D.D., was conferred on him by Harvard College in 1814, and shortly afterwards by Columbia College, S.C. Like his predecessor, he was a man of liberal views and tolerant practice, and if all the ministers of New England had been like them, no division of the churches on the basis of mere theological dogma would have ever taken place. During Dr. Sumner's time the Calvinistic additions to the covenant were erased by vote of the church doubtless through his influence. He was a man of great authority with his people, and of great personal dignity and weight of character. Of colossal stature six feet four inches in height he presented a most imposing presence. To the last he wore the costume of the last century: knee-breeches, silver buckles, cocked hat, white wig and all. A child was once so awe-stricken at sight of Dr. Sumner, as to run away and tell his mother that he had seen God. A characteristic story is told of him and Dr. Samuel Austin, of the First Worcester Parish. In a conversation at the house of the former, in Shrewsbury, where the latter had made a call, Dr. Sumner said, "I was brought up in the orthodox faith, and have always lived in it, and I expect to die in it." "But," said Dr. Austin, "you clipped off its corners." "Yes," was Dr. Sumner's reply, "and they need clipping more." Let me add another story characteristic of Dr. Austin as well as Dr. Sumner. At a meeting of the Worcester Ministerial Association Dr. Austin and Dr. Aaron Bancroft, pastors respectively of the First and Second Parishes in Worcester, were both proposed for membership. Dr. Austin having been admitted without objection, he vehemently opposed the admission of Dr. Bancroft, and a majority of the association voted against it, whereupon Dr. Sumner arose, and declaring that he would not belong to such an illiberal body, withdrew from the association, and it never met again. It was during Dr. Sumner's time that division of Congregational Churches into Trinitarian and Unitarian took place. In the last years of his ministry he had repeatedly suggested to his people the expediency of selecting a colleague pastor, and January 18, 1820, the church chose Rev. Samuel B. Ingersoll as colleague to Dr. Summer, and the parish concurring, the ordination took place June 14, 1820. This ordination being a sort of milestone in the history of the Congregational schism then in progress, I must give a brief account of it. Of the fifteen ministers who formed the ordaining council, five namely: Dr. Aaron Bancroft, of Worcester; Rev. John Miles, of Grafton; Rev. Ward Cotton, of Boylston; Dr. Joseph Allen, of Northborough; and Rev. William Nash, of West Boylston were Unitarians. At the examination of the candidate it appeared that he was a pronounced Calvinist. To his ordination on this account the Unitarian members of the council made no objection, but asked if he would fellowship with Unitarians. Mr. Ingersoll's reply was "I would not trust a Unitarian in my pulpit one hour." This was explicit enough for Dr. Bancroft, who arose and was followed by all the Unitarian members of the council, pastors and lay delegates, nine in number, down the long aisle out of the meeting-house. A majority of the council was still left, and the ordination proceeded. Such is the account of this ordination given to the writer nearly forty years ago by Dr. Eleazer T. Fitch, professor of divinity in Yale College, who was a member of the council. Mr. Ingersoll, after his ordination, preached but one Sunday, and died of consumption, November 14, 1820, at Beverly, where he was born in 1787. He graduated at Yale College in 1817, and was thirty years old at the time. He was at his death thirty-three. Before going to college he had been a sailor and shipwrecked at sea. It is said that as he lay floating and perishing on a piece of wreck in mid-ocean he heard a call to go and preach the gospel, and answered it with a solemn vow that if he were saved from perishing then he would obey the call. A funeral service was held simultaneously at Beverly and at Shrewsbury. "I preached and Dr. Bancroft and Mr. Cotton prayed." Such is Dr. Sumner's brief entry in the church records. I wonder if prayer or sermon contained any allusion to the drama played within the same walls only five months before. This ordination of Mr. Ingersoll was followed by important consequences both in Shrewsbury and elsewhere. In Shrewsbury, as we shall see later, a portion of the parish withdrew and formed a new society. Dr. Sumner was greatly annoyed at what had taken place. Doubtless he had hoped, by bringing together the clergy of the vicinity who were of opposing views, to do something towards healing the schism that was dividing and weakening the churches of New England. After Mr. Ingersoll's death Rev. Edwards Whipple was settled as a colleague to Dr. Sumner. He had previously been ordained and settled in Charlton, and dismissed at his own request. His installation took place September 20, 1821. He died September 17, 1822, of a fever after a sickness of only seven days, aged forty-four years. He was born in Westborough, November, 1778, graduated at Williams College in 1801, and studied his profession with the famous Dr. Nathaniel Emmons, of Franklin. Dr. Sumner continued in his ministry in Shrewsbury till his death, which occurred December 9, 1824, a period of more than sixty-two years, being at the time of his death nearly eighty five years old. His funeral sermon was preached by his life-long friend, Dr. Bancroft, pursuant to an understanding between them that whichever might die first, the other should preach his funeral sermon. But before Dr. Sumner's death still another colleague to him had been settled in Shrewsbury. Rev. George Allen was ordained here November 19, 1823. He was the son of Hon. Joseph Allen, born at Worcester, February 11, 1792, and graduated at Yale College in 1813. He remained in his pastorate at Shrewsbury till June 18, 1840, when he was dismissed by advice of an ecclesiastical council. For sixteen of the seventeen years of his life here Mr. Allen's relations with his church and parish were exceptionally pleasant and amicable. At his funeral said Rev. Dr. Buckingham, of Springfield, formerly settled in Millbury: "Years ago, when Mr. Allen was pastor of the church at Shrewsbury, we" (meaning the clergy of the vicinity) "remember to have thought that parsonage an ideal one. Looking off from that hill-top with his wife and children about him and a large and intelligent congregation listening to him, it seemed as if such love and influence and happiness ought to satisfy any mortal. They did satisfy him so long as he was permitted to enjoy them." But in the seventeenth year of his ministry there arose in Shrewsbury one of the most implacable minister quarrels in the history of New England. It had its origin in a scandal about Mr. Allen's family, of which want of space, if no other reason, would forbid detail here. Indignantly denying the truth of the scandalous stories in circulation, Mr. Allen in the pulpit and out of it castigated their circulators with a severity of language such as few men can equal and none ever exceeded, and his unsparing denunciations of all who had talked about his family, which included probably the entire inhabitants of the town, had the effect to estrange many of his warmest friends and to cause them to become disaffected. In a few months the disaffected party grew, so as to number full one-half the parish, "signed off," hired a preacher and a hall and had religious services on Sundays by themselves. It was a bitter feud, causing enmity between old friends and near neighbors, and finally resulted in an ecclesiastical council, before which the opposition to Mr. Allen, under leadership of Mr. Henry Dana Ward, laid charges against him. The council fully vindicated Mr. Allen from all intentional wrong and recommended him to the confidence of the churches; but, on account of the widespread disaffection which had impaired, if not entirely destroyed, his usefulness in Shrewsbury, they advised his dismissal with payment of full salary for the current year. These proceedings were directly followed by a slander suit brought by Mr. Allen against Mr. Ward. At the trial of this suit in the Supreme Court at Worcester, April term, 1841, the town of Shrewsbury turned out and packed the court-house. Nor was interest limited to the town. No trial at Worcester, for years, had excited such general interest. Verdict for plaintiff, damages $700; which, at the time, was regarded as heavy and exemplary. Rev. George Allen was unquestionably the ablest man whom Shrewsbury can boast to have ever had for a citizen. After his dismissal he returned to Worcester and lived there till his death, which occurred March 31, 1883. His age was ninety-one years. He had long survived his wife and children, of whom he once had four, two of whom had died within a year and a half before his dismissal at Shrewsbury, and one of whom was the subject of the scandal before referred to. For about thirty years Mr. Allen was chaplain of the State Lunatic hospital at Worcester. A man of great learning and accurate scholarship, and holding the pen of a ready writer, he became in Worcester a public and influential man. He was interested in and performed efficient service in all the reformatory movements of the times. In the anti-Masonic movement which followed the murder of Morgan in Western New York, where he preached a few years before he came to Shrewsbury, he took an active and prominent part. He was one of the earliest and most pronounced anti-slavery men, and on formation of the Free-Soil party in 1848 he gave valuable aid to his brother, who, more than any other man, must be regarded as founder of that party. Though maintaining his connection from first to last with the Orthodox Congregational Church, he was a man of extremely liberal views, and had the honor to have his orthodoxy challenged many times in his life. Before settlement in Shrewsbury he was rejected by an ordaining council at Aurora, N.Y., where he had received a call, for "unsoundness on original sin. All his life he publicly repudiated the Westminster Catechism, and in 1865 at Plymouth, where the National Council of his denomination met, in eloquent words he solemnly protested against its reaffirmation as being too sectarian for the catholic spirit of the Pilgrim Fathers, over whose ashes they had met, and too narrow to comprehend the breadth of their principles of religious freedom. Mr. Allen's successor in the ministry at Shrewsbury was Rev. James Averill, who was born at Griswold, Conn., May 29, 1815. He graduated at Amherst College in the class of 1837, studied his profession at the Yale Theological School and was ordained over the church and parish in Shrewsbury, June 22, 1841. He was dismissed at his own request November 15, 1848. Mr. Averill died in 1863 in the service of his country, chaplain of a Connecticut regiment. Rev. Nathan Witter Williams was the successor of Mr. Averill. He was the son of Rev. Joseph Williams, and born at Providence, R.I., March 12, 1816; graduated at Yale College in 1842; studied theology with Rev. Albert Barrens, of Philadelphia; was ordained at Shrewsbury, February 28, 1849, and dismissed at his own request April 27, 1858. After Mr. Williams' dismissal he was elected Representative from Shrewsbury to the General Court and served as a member of that body in the session of 1859. The next minister of the Congregational Church and Parish in Shrewsbury was Rev. William A. McKinley, who was ordained June 2, 1859, and dismissed by his request July 27, 1865. He was an accomplished scholar and eloquent preacher. He had originally selected the law for his profession and had read a year or more for admission to the bar before he studied divinity. He is now settled in Portsmouth, N.H. Rev. Ebenezer Porter Dyer was the successor of Mr. McGinley. He was born at Abington, August 15, 1813, graduated at Brown University in the class of 1833, studied divinity at Andover and was first settled and ordained at Stowe, where he began preaching in 1835, and where he remained till 1846. Installed at Hingham in 1848, he remained there till 1864. He was again installed here November 7, 1867, and resigned his pastorate June 19, 1877. Beginning at Stowe in his youth, afterwards at several other places, Boston, Winter Hill, Somerville and elsewhere, he performed missionary labor, founding, it is said, by his direct efforts, three churches, and indirectly causing to be founded three others. He was author of several books, among others a metrical version of "Pilgrim's Progress," published by Lee & Shepard, Boston, in 1869, while he was in Shrewsbury. He died at Abington, August 22, 1883, aged seventy years. Rev. John L. Scudder, who succeeded Mr. Dyer, was born in 1855, in India, where his father, Dr. Scudder was a missionary of the American Board. He graduated at Yale College in 1874, and pursued his professional studies at Union Theological Seminary. Ordained here December 26, 1877, he remained till March, 1882, when he requested a dismissal and went to accept a call to Minneapolis. He is now settled at Jersey City. The successor of Mr. Scudder was Rev. Frank H. Allen, a graduate of Amherst College in the class of 1874, and a classmate of his predecessor at Union Theological Seminary. He was ordained here October 25, 1882, and resigned his office as pastor August 23, 1888, to accept a call to Milwaukee.

Can-do reunion Mar 97 @ Military Reunion News

USS Ingersoll veterans requested the new USS Ingersoll (DD-990) to host their reunion. Approved by the US Pacific Fleet, the new Ingersoll was waiting at the San Diego pier. It was a dream come true. The decks of the new ship came alive with 186 spouses and veterans of the old Ingersoll (decommissioned in 1971) caught up in the excitement of a shipboard tour, memorial service and meal with the crew.

Royal Eason Ingersoll II, attended the christening of the first Ingersoll (DD-652) in Bath, Maine, and represented the family at the new Ingersoll (DD-990) in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He is the grandson of Admiral Royal Eason Ingersoll, the namesake of the DD-990 and the great-grandson of the namesake of the DD-652. In his remarks, Ingersoll described the DD-652 as a legend among destroyers and source of pride to the Ingersoll family. In World War II, service was not without loss of life and the memorial recalled those shipmates and their sacrifices.

Both destroyer class, the new Ingersoll is more than twice as large as the old and equipped with the latest weapons technology,
engineering and navigation. The Navy has always recognized the importance of good food to shipboard morale. Comments from veterans were complimentary. "Far superior to the food when we were in the old Navy!"

The Ingersoll is a credit to the Navy and the personnel who man her. These destroyer men are can-do people who take pride in being small ship sailors. It felt good being with them because they have the right attitude and attitude is everything.

KEY WORDS: Furniture, Shaker, Ingersoll Catalog $2

Since 1969 Ian Ingersoll has guided a master woodworkers' guild. As a chair and cabinetmaker he has designed tall clocks, beds and custom case pieces; however, most representative of his talents are his Shaker chairs, stools, and trestle tables of northeastern maple and southern cherry, of which "each piece is a reflection of love of craft." The shop's specialty is a rocking chair whose time-tested design was developed in the 1860's by Robert Wagan for the Shaker community at Mt. Lebanon, New York; originals are still in use today. From extensive research into Mr. Wagan's work, Ingersoll has designed arm and side chairs in the Shaker aesthetic, which he states will not only provide comfortable seating during a long repast, but also are expected to enjoy a greater longevity than the more than 130 years held by those still serviceable predecessors (details such as the interlocking of tenons within upright posts contribute significantly to these chairs' endurance). Ingersoll's seat weavers, who have had the opportunity to inspect and reseat many original Shaker chairs, in addition to the hundreds of chairs they handle annually, have devised improved weaving techniques which Ingersoll likewise assures will outlast the originals. Aside from their durability, the seats and backs contribute greatly to the appeal of Shaker chairs; here, 100% cotton webbing in solid, 2-color, or stripe/solid combinations is woven in patterns which have graphic, and often dynamic, appeal (see, for example, the arm chair and Mt. Lebanon rocking chair in the Gallery) which fits nicely into country and contemporary settings. These are pieces intended to be seen and enjoyed for generations.

Frederick Ingersoll

What John Miller was to roller coasters, Frederick Ingersoll was to amusement parks. In the April 20, 1929 issue of "Billboard," John Miller -- then at the peak of his career -- said, "We all owe the success of the amusement park to Fred Ingersoll." Ingersoll opened his own Luna Park -- the first park of that name outside of Coney Island -- in Pittsburgh in 1905. Another Luna Park in Cleveland, Ohio was opened that same year. (Cleveland's Luna had a Jack Rabbit and a Pippin coaster. It is likely that Miller designed and built both rides.) By 1915 there were Ingersoll Luna Parks all over the world. Ingersoll also designed and built roller coasters. His "Racer" -- a figure eight "pleasure railway" -- opened in 1902 at Kennywood. He designed or built almost 300 more coasters over the next 25 years. The Ingersoll Brothers built a second coaster at Kennywood, the John Miller designed "Racer." It was built in 1910 for $50,000, and was the world's largest racing coaster at the time. A side friction coaster, it was torn down in 1926 and replaced by a Kiddieland.

Another highlight was the agreement by a GE-led consortium including Dresser Industries and Ingersoll-Rand to acquire 69% of Nuovo Pignone, an Italian electrical equipment maker, from ENI. This move further strengthens our position in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Asia, and particularly in Russia, where Nuovo Pignone recently received commitments for $1.6 billion in pipeline equipment.

Ingersoll Hotel, Ketchikan, Alaska

Conveniently located on Ketchikan's waterfront, Alaska Sportfishing combines the facilities of the Ingersoll Hotel and local top charter boats to give anglers an outstanding economical Alaska fishing opportunity. (907) 478-2124

"The person who owned the hotel in the 1910-1920 area was Charles Ingersoll. It was called the Revilla Hotel then.  It was a three story wooden structure with round cupolas -very impressive- on the corner of Front and Mission Streets, which is right on the waterfront.  Around 1927 it burned to the ground.  The fish packing boat, "Admiral Rogers", received a commendation for bravery in helping rescue all the occupants so no one was killed.  Ingersoll contracted with Warrick Construction Co.of Seattle, to rebuild the hotel, but then the story goes on, he confiscated all the insurance money and left town, so Warrick ended up owning the hotel, which they named the Ingersoll, after the crook who ran off with the dough! There is a restaurant in the hotel, one of the best in town, named "Charlies" after him, also.
