About Andrew Jackson Ingle

He was a merchant in Eldridge, Winston County, Alabama. Alfred O'Mary wrote in 1972 that Andrew Jackson , on a trip back from fighting the Seminoles in Florida, met a woman named Catherine Poore and that she later had a son that she named Andrew Jackson Poore. Catherine died when Andy was about a year old. Catherine's parents not wanting the child, took the baby to Peter Ingle and his wife Jane Ingle (maiden name Odum). Peter was supposedly an old friend of Jackson. In exchange for taking care of Andy, Andrew Jackson helped Peter procure a land grant in Jefferson County, Alabama. Andrew was a strong Union sympathizer during the Civil War. He aided Union soldiers with money, food & other provisions and informed them on confederate force locations. He was arrested by the confederate forces on several occasions and held and questioned. Andrew was the first man in Alabama arrested for disloyalty to the confederacy. On occasion their were rebel guards posted at his house so that he could not inform union forces of rebel locations. He also persuaded several of his neighbors to join the union army and he helped their families while they were away, by supplying them with food and cultivating their fields. He served as a guard for the confederate mail from Tuscaloosa to Courtland for about three months in 1864-65 to be exempt from conscription by the confederates. In 1863 he was elected as County Commissioner by the Union men of the county and he served about a year & half. General Roddy of the CSA camped on his place for about two weeks in 1863 consuming the entire products of his plantation and took some of his livestock which he received no pay. In 1865 when General Wilson made his raid he seized some of Andrew property which later Andrew filed a claim for with numerous affidavits from several people stating his loyalty to the Union. The Committee on War Claims of the House of Representatives on the grounds that he must have taken an allegiance to the confederacy to have held the position of mail guard & county commissioner, even though Commissioner J.B. Powell in Washington, D.C. stated that such office did not require it in the confederacy.

Andrew is also considered the founder of Double Springs, Alabama he moved there after the war and started a mercantile business. He was a representative in 1875 and 1882 to the State Constitutional Convention. Andrew was also one of the leaders in establishing Ingles Mill, later called Nauvoo Mill.
