John Ince (son of Robert Ince and McCammett) was born Abt. 1774 in Ireland, and died January 5, 1834 in Columbia Township, Lawrence County, Arkansas. He married (1) Agnes Campbell on April 24, 1800 in Mecklenburgh, Craven County, North Carolina. He married (2) Elizabeth (Betsy) Clark on January 6, 1812 in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, daughter of John Clark.

Includes NotesNotes for John Ince:
John Ince came to America at the age of 16 in approximately 1790. He appeared singlely Craven County, North Carolina.

He came on a boat in the later part of 1790. The boat captain was his mother's brother, Uncle McCammett. He landed somewhere in Virginia. The boat came from England.

Some of the places he has lived were Ireland, Noth Carolina, Virginia, Overton County, Tennessee, Missouri, and Arkansas.

He married (1) Agnes Campbell on April 24, 1800 in Mecklenberg County North Carolina. He married (2) Elizabeth (Betsy) Clark January 06, 1812 in Cabarras County, North Carolina.

He was in the 'War of 1812" in the Militia.

According to stories of our ancestors, he came to America with his sea captain Uncle McCammet and escaped while the ship was being unloaded. Another story says that he and a buddy were looking around and missed the boat and cried for days, but when they could return they chose not to. It is not known where they landed, but John Ince is on the 1790 census in Mecklenburg, North Carolina. There is record of other Inces in America long before he came.

There is a record of his marriage to Agnes Campbell.

Excerpt from North Carolina Militia Company Muster Roll, War of 1812 says, "Served as a private in Captain John Garretson's Company of Infantry, 7th Regiment, North Carolina Detached Militia from February 1, to July 31, 1814. Muster Roll shows that he was sick at Fort Laurens from March 28, to May 11, 1814 when his unit was in camp near Fort Jackson. He was present miles from where he lived. He "drawed one pair of shoes" here. When he was discharged he was paid $8.00 per month for six months and allowed 8 days travel time to return home. He served where the present town of Milledgeville, Georgia stands now. He was also allowed 96 cents for subsistence and $2.13 pay while traveling. He had 98 cents deducted for one pair of shoes from his $51.09 aggregate pay due.

He was on the 1790 Craven County, North Carolina census as single person, over 16 years of age, living alone. He was granted 50 acres of land in Overton County, Tennessee on November 10, 1825. That is the same year that William married Sarah Stockton, in Overton County.

In 1833, Lawrence County, Arkansas, he was on the tax rolls with William McCammett, in next County until at least 1837 and in Wright County Missouri by 1841. There until at least 1851. Some of the children were in Green County, Missouri in the early 1880's.
He and a friend, both sixteen, had decided to work their way to the United States and back on a boat that sailed from England. The Captain was John's uncle, his mother's brother, named McCammett. Both boys were sightseeing the day they were to sail home from Virginia, and arrrived late at the dock. When they saw the boat sailing away, they sat down on the docks and cried, as they knew it would be five months before it returned. Both had to seek work and John found a place to live in the home of an old couple. He did the chores for his room and board. When the boat returned he decided against going home because he liked America so much.

He obviously enjoyed traveling, as he moved from Ireland to Virginia to North Carolina, where he married, then to Georgia, Tennessee and finally Arkansas, where he died.

The name Ince appears in only two counties in the "Index of Surnames of Householders in Griffith's Primary Valuation and Tithe Applotment Books," the former compiled between 1848 and 1864 and the latter dating from the late 1820s to the early 1830s: seven times in Queens and once in neighboring Kilkenny. In the Tithe Applotment Books covering all of Ireland, only three Ince's were listed in Queens County: Richard, in Maryborough, William in the Parish of Clonenagh and Clonekeen, and Robert in the Parish of Moyanna. All three parishes are in the Diocese of Leighlin, Queens County.

The origin of the name Ince is French. It is believed the family left their homeland with many other French protestants in the late 1600s or earlier. Some settled in Cheshire and one group particpated in the Elizabethan or Stuart "plantations" of central Ireland.
