|At the beginning of each page in the ledger were entries made in the margin, turned sideways. These entries are noted in boxes like this one.|
The following is a transcription from a ledger style history found in the film of the Family History Center of the Mormon Church, # 0396360. All of it is in script, hard to read and at times illegible. I wish I could reproduce more exactly like the original since the cover sheet is hand-made with the outlines of leaves imprinted on the sheet.
Several notations are made that the ledger was bought at a public auction and needed to be preserved. It is my guess that this was done by Mr. Beeson whose name is also on the cover sheet. This needs to be confirmed.

Some of the early records of Inman in England ------
Records show a transaction conveying property in Upper Nidderdale, Yorkshire, Eng. Thus: -William Gresham conveyed to John Tophane, (of Thripland) - William Inman, John Bayne, Roger Thackery, Thomas Burke, and Christopher Rayner (the elder) all of the parish of Kirby Malzeard, the grange called Westholme House with lands ? thereto belonging, and parcels of the granges called Bouthwaite and Softhouse, with their appurtenances, for the sum of 710 sterling paid prior to the ensealing of the said indenture.
The old grange at Bouthwaite, was for many generations the property and home of the Inmans; connections of the well known recent owners of the Inman line of ocean steam ships. William Inman was living at the grange in 1587 and his will dated 1614, shows that he left to his son Robert, the bulk of his property at Bouthwaite. It was this Robert Inman, known in history, as Bold Robin of Bouthwaite, and he was concerned in the fracas with the Parliament soldiers at Pately Bridge in 1648. He is credited as having slain several thieves in his own house at Bouthwaite, and the weapon (a dagger) alleged to have been used in this conflict, is said to have been kept in the family untill last century when it was sold. Roberts daughter Grace Inman, married twice; first to Capt. Anthony Beckwith, whose son John Beckwith, married Mary, dau. of Col. Chas. Fairfax, of Menston: younger brother of Lord Fairfax, General of the northern forces of Parliament 1642 to 5. Bold Robin died in 1662 and was succeded by one of his sons who made his will at Bouthwaite in 1670 leaving his land to his eldest son, Robt. Inman (grandson to B.R.) whose initials and date 1673 can still be seen over doorway of the old grange.
Robert left no son and the grange went to his younger brother Charles, whose son Charles next inherited same dying in 1749. The family continued to hold lands with the ancient paternal homestead as late as 1830.
|First generation of Inman of which any record is at present available, is that of Robert Inman; who in all probably was the ancestor of the Inmans noted on forgoing or previous page (6).|
Robert Inman of Calval (Covill) House Grange, (Township of Fountains Earth, par. Kirby Malzeard) in Yorkshire; a rent paying tenant there. The following partial extract is taken from a book Upper Nidderdale With the forest of Knaresborough: By Harry Speight, Pub. 1906. Of Fountains Earth, March 30. Hen. VIII* (a 1539): see Certif. of Masters, Misc. Exch. books. T.R. Vol. 38. Of Calfal House Grange, Sept. a 1566 to Aug. 10 - 1568, at which later date he and Robert Benson pay two years rent due Sept. 29 - 1568. The following genealogic diagram will show descendants down to dates recent enough to enable research easy.

Relative to the Genealogy of my ancestors have never had access to records such as might be found in such records in the historical and genealogical records of the states of Rhode island, Pensylvania, state libraries nor the genealogicl library at Washington D.C.

Migration of John Inman
During the month of July in the year 1835 a John Inman from Lucerne Co., Penn. and another man from O., in exploring the wild west when Wis. was young, left Milwaukee on a couple of Indian ponies with several days provisions, including the trusty rifle, which no one traveled without in those days.
Going south and west, and camping where night overtook them they woke the 3rd morning to find the ponies were gone. Rather than leave their belongings behind, they shouldered their luggage and went on following the catfish river to a point about 85 miles from Milwaukee, camping on a bluff near a trail which leads eastward to Racine.
From this bluff they could see prairie land reaching far to the east and south. To them it looked like an ocean of waving grass and blooming flowers, and thought they had surely found the paradise of the world.
Journeying a few miles eastward they came to a grove which showed indications of having been an Indian camping ground and they called it Black Hawk Grove. Here they found and secured the ponies again and they returned to Milwaukee.
Being satisfied with their investigation of the country, they were determined to make their future home in the prairie land. During their 10 days trip they found but one white family.
The following November, Inman, with the company of 5 other men, made his 2nd trip from Milwaukee. Driving an ox team and wagon loaded with provisions, tools and other necessaries, arriving 3 days later on the bluff opposite the Big Rock in the middle of Rock River, which place now is in the city of Janesville, Wis.
The first important business of the pioneer was to build a small log house, and until this was done they had to camp on the ground or in their wagons.
As biting frosts of winter were at hand no time was to be lost, so the prospect of a house and also a home, gave them courage so the woodmans ax resounded from the forest and within a wk their house was ready to move into.
Then a month later (middle of Dec.) came a man & his wife & 2 children, who joined them in the cabin. She was the first white woman settler in Rock Co. Wis.
Then in Jan. 1836 came another man & wife & they joined to colony making family of 12, all wintered in the cabin together.
First Settlement in Rock Co., Wis.
To obtain exact and reliable information concerning events which have occurred within a comparatively recent period, while many of those are yet living whose individual efforts and achievements form the subject of the inquiry, would appear to be a task presenting but few difficulties.
But busy men, whose thoughts and energies have been devoted mainly, if not exclusively, to the securing of homes and fortunes in a new country, naturally have little time to record the incidents and events which made up the history of their daily lives; nor are they inclined to regard them as other than trivial and unimportant, and therefore too insignificant to be perpetuated. From this disposition to regard most occurrences as trifling in themselves, combined with want of leisure or inclination to keep a daily record of what they thought, felt, hoped, did or suffered, it follows that the record of early settlements contains but scant material from which to obtain facts for the pages of history. Patient industry and careful research, however, rarely fail to discover forgotten letters and old books of account, or to refresh the memories of early settlers regarding the events of long ago, which, being compared, weighed and sifted, supply the laborious searchers for truth with the information necessary for this purpose.
The difficulties encountered in preparing a history of any particular county are precisely of the character just indicated, and they are surmounted only by patient and persistent research and investigation.
The close of the Black Hawk war and the return home of the soldiers by whose fortitude and gallantry the Sac chief had been defeated and his band dispersed, called the attention of the country to the extraordinary natural advantages of the Rock River Valley. Next to the narration of the exploits of himself and comrades in the field, the returned volunteer found his greatest delight in glowing accounts of the beautiful, flower-decked prairies, rich with nutritious grasses from three to six feet in height, and dotted at intervals with burr-oak openings, and of the swift and sparkling streams, winding like silver threads between their verdure-clad banks.
According to these accounts, the Rock River country was a veritable modern Eden. Such enthusiasm naturally communicated itself to those who listened to the narration, many of whom made up their minds to dispose of their then possessions as speedily as possible, and secure for themselves a home in this region, which was seemingly, awaiting the occupation of the industrious and the enterprising.
On the 14th of July, 1835, John Inman of Lucerne County, Pennsylvania, and William Holmes, of Ohio, started from Milwaukee to spy out the land in this much-vaunted valley. Procuring a couple of Indian ponies upon which to pack their provisions, and armed with the trusty rifle, without which no one in the Northwest traveled in those days, they set out upon their explorations.
Two days march from Milwaukee brought them to Fort Atkinson, then just evacuated by the officer for whom it was named and his command, where they went intocamp for the night. The next day they went west and south, and camped at night at the mouth of the Yahara (Catfish) River. When morning came, they found that their ponies had taken French leave, and that they must either pack their own traps, or leave them behind.
This was an inconvenience, to be sure, but not a disaster to hardy pioneers; so they shouldered their luggage and continued their explorations, following the course of the river southward till they reached point now occupied by the city of Janesville, where they camped on the point of the bluff on the Racine road. From this point they saw Rock Prairie stretching away in distance to the east and south, till the verdant plain mingled with the blue of the horizon.
They saw before them an ocean of waving grass, and blooming flowers, and realized the idea of having found the real Canaan - the real paradise of the world.
Continuing their journey to the eastward, they came within half a mile of a beautiful grove, in which they found unmistakable indications of its having been occupied not long before as an Indian encampment, to which they gave the name of Black Hawk Grove, which it still bears. Shortly after this, they discovered their ponies, and, having secured them, set out upon their return to Milwaukee entirely satisfied with their investigations, and fully determined to make this magnificent and fertile prairie their home. They reached Milwaukee on the 23rd of July, having been absent ten days.
In all their travels, they had found but one white family -that of Mr. McMillan, who resided where Waukeska now stands.
On the 15th day of Nov. 1835, John Inman [2nd coz.(?) to Irvings father and from East Pa.], Thomas Holmes, Wm. Holmes, Joshua Holmes, Milo Jones and Geo. Follmer started from Milwaukee with an ox team and wagon, the latter containing provisions, tools and other necessaries and, on the 18th day of the same month, arrived opposite the big rock. The biting frosts of winter were at hand; no time was to be lost. The banks of the river on either side were lined with oaks, maples and ash. There was no scarcity of building material. The woodmans ax soon resounded from the forest, and within a week a log house graced the hillside. This was the first settlement in Rock County, Wis.
A little over a month after the arrival of John Inman and his company upon Rock River. where they began the first settlement in Rock Co., there arrived out, Samuel St. John and his wife - the last mentioned the first white woman settler of the county. On the 15th of Jan., 1836, Dr. James Heath and wife joined the little colony. All wintered in the log cabin together. Settlements soon followed in other parts of the county. Particular accounts of these will hereafter be given; for the present, the readers attention will be invited to personal narratives of pioneers and others, to be followed by a description of pioneer life as it stands revealed upon the pages of history.

I. I. Inman
1017 W. Elm St.
Hartford City, Ind.
In June 1632 two English emigrants John & Henry Inman landed on the Rhode Island shore from the Trade Ship Clarion.
The writer is a descendant of John Inman. How many generations descended from said John I do not know, but in 1774, one of his decendants Elijah Inman moved to Button Wood Pct. 8 miles South of Wilks Barre, Pa. He was one of the first to introduce iron moulding west of the Alleghany Mts. He lost 4 sons in the Wyoming Indian massacre.
Edward the youngest son, was Great Grand Father to my Mother.
One of Elijahs sons moved up into New York after the massacre and was lost track of: the graves of Elijah & et al are in Hanover Green Cemetery 200 feet or so N. W. of the church.
Elijahs son Edward had a son (John Edward who was my Grand Father); he and family of five sons and three daughters moved to Carroll County, Ill. in 1854 or so.
My father Edward, s-o Elijah & Levi, located in Rock Co., Wis. in the early fifties. Whitney & George staid with Grand Father in the vicinity of Millegville, Ill. Some years later, Uncle George moved to Iowa.
