Buried with her father and brother, James, Jr., in the James Ingles, Sr. plot. She was also known as Caty Ingles. She was married to John Hall about 1825. Kate Ingalls and John Hall had one child, DeWitt C. Hall. As children married they occupied the tenant house at the corner of Buyea and Eddy Roads. After a short period of time they moved to their own farm. This pattern seems to be followed with all the children. The tenant house still exists at the corner of Buyea Road and Eddy Road although it is in poor shape and looks more like an old chicken coop. From DJ Ingalls notes.
