  1. Ing, Jacob   (b. Abt 1786 - d. 5 Dec 1869)
      • Son of Christopher Ing and Mary Whitehead Pope Ing. In 1827 he was appointed a postmaster at the Philips Store in the Arrington Community of Nash County. In January 1869 he was still listed as a postmaster. He was a relative of the Pope family in that area since his mother married 1st to West Pope who died in 1784. Mary Whitehead married 2nd to Christopher Ing. Jacob had several free persons of color that lived on his farm from the early 1800s through the 1860s. They were recorded as Mulatto in the federal census at that time. Closeup of marker. Another photo of grave marker.
