    H. D. Ingraham was born in Fairport, Ohio, October 9, 1845, whence he soon after removed with his parents to Mentor, where he attended the public schools until he reached the age of seventeen years, assisting his father with the farm work in the meantime. It was in 1862 that he began sailing in the bark City of Painesville, of which his father was part owner, and in which he remained four and a half years, following with a season in the schooner G. S. Hazard. In the spring of 1868 he shipped in the schooner Charley Crawford, as second mate with Captain Averill, holding that berth four seasons. The next spring he was appointed mate of the schooner Minnehaha, and his father purchasing the scow Vampire the Captain sailed her next, his brother, Freeman, going as mate. He then sailed as mate of the Ogaritta, Thomas W. Palmer and Zach Chandler, until 1885, when he was appointed master of the Zach Chandler for a short time. In the spring of 1886 he joined the schooner Ashland as mate, and the next season assumed command of her. In 1888 he came out as mate of the steamer Sitka, closing that season as mate of the Wocoken. In 1889 he entered the employ of the American Transportation Company, of Fairport, as master of the tug George R. Paige, sailing her five seasons, and transferring to the tug Annie, which he commands at this writing. He has fifteen issues of first- class pilot's papers.

    On December 25, 1880, Captain Ingraham wedded Miss Lydia Lapham, daughter of Edward and Rebecca Lapham, of Mentor, and two children - Daniel H. and Elizabeth S. - have been born to this union. The family homestead is in Mentor township, near Painesville, Ohio.
