From The "History of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania"

Inman Family - Wyoming Valley, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania

    The "History of Hanover" by Plurub, page 434, says Elijah Inman was born in Connecticut in 1718, came to Hanover previous to the Wyoming Massacre with a large family, there being seven sons, the youngest 15 at the time of the massacre". 

    "A History of Wilkesbarre and Wyoming Valley". II, 1110 by Oscar J. Harvey, 1909, says Elijah Inman, Sr. was born in either Connecticut or Rhode Island in 1718, and in 1775 he came with his wife, Susanna and children to the Wyoming Valley and settled in Hanover Township.
    His name appears on the tax lists for 1776, 77, 78, 80, and 81. 
    After the battle of Wyoming he fled from the valley with his wife and younger children, but returned a few months later to find his house and barn burnt, his cattle missing and most of his crops destroyed. --died in Hanover township February 7, 1804, aged 86.

    "They were the parents of the following named: Elijah--, Richard b. about 1759, Israel, David--, John b. about 1758, Isaac b. 1760 and Edward b. 1763."

The "History of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania", 350 says: "The Inmans, a family conspicuous in the days that were so dark and troubled here for the number of it's name that gave their lives as a sacrifice. Five brothers went to the battle of Wyoming. --two lay dead on the ground, three escaped, but Richard from overheat and swimming the rive, returned home only to die in a few weeks from disease contracted thereby. There were seven brothers, two remained at home that day because they could not secure arms; one Isaac, was 19 and the other a mere lad, both of whom would have been at the bloody sacrifice except for the fact stated. The parents were aged at the time, and it was doubly necessary for the two youths to be with them, as the fates turned the battle and caused the following exodus. Elijah and Israel were killed in battle. Richard Inman saved the life of Rufus Bennett in the retreat by shooting the Indian who was in hot chase after him. 
    Isaac--was ambushed and killed by the Indians the following winter."

"History of Wyoming, Pennsylvania, 1845, App.26, by Charles Miner, gives a similar account and "the Poetry and History of Wyoming", 1869, 252 by William L. Stone gives a 2 1/2 page account of the four killed.


    In this city, on the 2nd inst., at the residence of his son, P. H. Inman, Mr. ISRAEL INMAN, aged 84 years.

Richard Inman

    Last night another of Rock county’s pioneers was called to his reward and his family was left to mourn. The deceased, Richard Inman, was about ninety years old, and had until very recently enjoyed reasonably good health. His death was caused by severe cold contracted a number of days ago, and which settled on his lungs. He was well known in Rock county, as a successful farmer, and a good citizen and his death will be sincerely mourned. Besides a wife he leaves a family of two sons and two daughters, a son and daughter having preceded him over the dark river. No time has been fixed for the funeral which will be held at this late home in Afton as soon as the relatives can be notified.

Mr. Inman was born in Luzerne county, Pennsylvania, on September 29, 1828. He came to Wisconsin in 1836, and has since resided in this state. When 27 years of age he settled in in the town of Plymouth, and has resided there since - 36 years. Throughout his life he was known as an honest, upright and honorable farmer, and his word was always as good as his bond. Friends and neighbors have nothing but good words for J. B. Inman.
    The funeral was held from the church in the town of Plymouth Sunday, Rev. R. J. Reynolds officiating. The church was filled with the early settlers of the town, and at the conclusion of the services the remains of the old pioneer were laid to rest in the cemetery near by, the pall bearers being Messrs.

A County Pioneer is Dead

Lyman Inman of Plymouth is summoned Home, Aged 74

John B. Inman

    John B. Inman, son of John Inman, was born May 5, 1885, at Plymouth, Rock county, Wis. and died August 31, 1898 at the same place, aged 13 years, 3 months and 26 days.
    Accidentally falling off a horse some time ago, he injured his spine, which caused his sickness on August 9, 1898. From then until the day of his death he suffered untold agony. The morning of his death all indications seemed to show a vast improvement in his condition, but like the dying leaves of autumn, as though making one more attempt to cheer up and brighten the world around him, it truly proved to be a delusion, the end coming peacefully at about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, and was as though falling to sleep.
    A little over a year ago his mother preceded him in death. A father, two sisters, Maud and Zalema (Zelma), one brother, Stanley and many other loved ones remain to mourn his early departure.
    A strange coincidence it seemed, in that in a delirium he was away from home and wanted to get back. Shortly before he died he said with relief and as though quite satisfied, "Now I am going home." How true it proved, for now he has gone home and can say:

"I am coming, mother dear,
For your loving voice I hear
Calling me to dwell with Christ and you on high;
I will bid them all farewell;
Of death’s sting ? can tell,
Feeling sure that Christ, my savior now is nigh."

    The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church in Plymouth on Friday, Sept 2, 1898, conducted by Rev. H. O. Seidel? who preached from the words, "And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof." Zach. 8:5. The internment was in the Plymouth Cemetery.

Harrison C. Inman.

    Harrison C. Inman who died at 8:30 yesterday at his home in Plymouth, was one of the pioneers of the county, who left an indelible impression upon the township in which he lived. He was born in Lucerne county, Pa., in 1817. At the age of 20 he came west and settled in Plymouth, then practically a wilderness. By his thrift and energy the forest was transformed into cultivated farm and the refinements of life followed.
    He possessed the sturdy qualities of the early settler, the fearless heart and the strong arm. In all the varied relations of life he bore his part manfully and leaves an enviable record. He is survived by a wife and six children -Thomas and Ira Inman of Plymouth, four daughters, Mrs. E. H. Smythe and Mrs. H. G. Nelson of Newark; Mrs. Lazette Inman of Plymouth, and Mrs. B. E. Smiley of Madison, Wisconsin; also two brothers - Ed Inman of this city and James Inman of Beloit and one sister, Mrs. W. Tripp of Rock township.

    OBITUARY: Died at the home of her daughter in the town of Washington, on the 20th day of April, 1902, Mrs. Lelilah Applegate Inman, aged 87 years 6 months and 24 days.
    Mrs. Inman was born in the town of Newton, Sussex Co., New Jersey, November 26, 1814. The family move to Nescopeck, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Here Mrs. Inman became acquainted with R. S. Inman, whom she married in 1833. A few years later another move was made, this time settling in Rock., Wisconsin, a little west of the city of Janesville, in 1841. Still the pioneer spirit was not satisfied and thirteen years later in the fall of 1854 the Inman family settled in the town of Washington, Sauk Co, Wisconsin, which place has been the home of Mrs. Inman with but one short interval, ever since, that interval of two years being spent in San Jose, California, with her daughter, Clara. 
    Mrs. Inman early in life united with the M. E. Church and as death drew near rejoiced in the thought of entering into the reward of a well spent life. Of the marriage thirteen children were born, all but one having attained manhood or womanhood. Seven of whom are still living to mourn her loss.
Cyprian residing in Catlin, Washington; Sarah M. Roberts, with whom she was living at the time of her death; Peter, living in Rodney, Ia; Burt, whose home is in Milton, Oregon; Casildea Cary of Tracy, Minn.; Clara A. Baldwin of Aronas, Calif; and Clarence Applegate Inman of Creston, WA; Of the children the two daughters, Sarah M and Clara A were with her at the time of her death. Of the boys four of them did good service in the late Civil War, Israel in the 3rd. Wis Vol Inf; Cyprian whose regiment is forgotten by the writer and Richard in the 3rd Wis Vol Inf. By a curious coincidence her funeral was held in the Loganville school house on the anniversary of the funeral of her son Richard just thirty years ago. The writer wishes to add his testimony to the universal respect and esteem in which Mrs. Inman was held by her neighbors and friends. Kind and sympathetic in nature, she was a universal favorite of the young people far and near, who were sure to have a hearty welcome and a God speed from her.

Fannie Inman Dies Suddenly

    Miss Fannie Inman of 918 Vine St., Beloit, died in her home on Sunday, February 4 at 4:45 p.m. The cause of her death was pernicious anemia, from which she had suffered quite noticeably since before Christmas. Funeral services were held in the home on Wednesday at 2 p.m. the Rev. L. O. Anderson of Luther Valley officiating, where up on the remains was brought to Plymouth Cemetery and laid to rest in the family lot. Mrs. Anderson sang several appropriate numbers.
    Fannie Estella Inman was born on July 27, 1866, on the Inman farm in Newark. Her parents were Lyman and Mary nee Smiley, both of Pennsylvania Dutch descent. She attended the community grade school, also attended the Plymouth M. E. Sunday school. Later she studied art painting and took great interest in painting landscapes and flowers. She was a lover of music and played well on the piano.
    Miss Inman took care of her mother during the declining years of her life. She proved to be an excellent nurse, bright and cheerful and always willing to help when it was needed. She was known for thinking of others before thinking of herself. Thus she cared for her mother for many years until her mother at the age of 89 passed on.
    This was in 1922. After this, she moved to Beloit to share the home of her older sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Tripp. She would spend the winter months with her sister in Beloit. But when spring and summer came she would inevitably be found on the old homestead in the company of her younger sister, Mrs. John Ringen.
    The deceased had been well until about six months ago when she noticed that she did not feel as well as usual. Her folks also took note of her failing. She tried to regain her strength. Shortly before Christmas she came to know that she had pernicious anemia. She still was up and around and look forward to improvement.
    Not until Friday of last week did she decide to keep to bed. Nor did it look so serious. She felt tired and weak. On Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock her folks noticed a decided change in her condition. At 4:45 o’clock that same afternoon she breathed her last.
    The deceased will be sorely missed by a host of friends and more especially by her three surviving sisters with whom the relationship was so ideal. These sisters are Mrs. Elizabeth Tripp and Mrs. Grace Wilkins, both of Beloit, and Mrs. Garrie Ringen of Newark. Yet if we focus our attention on the ever living Savior and not on the dead our sorrow shall be hallowed and our grief assuaged and we will then possess our dear one in a new and better way.
    Gone is she whom our hearts held dear, through all our years together. Her sunny smile was always ours through fair and stormy weather. She was wanted back in heaven so who spread cheer to every heart, She was wanted back n heaven so from her we had to part.
