From the 1887 History of Vernon County, Missouri, p. 395:


(Farmer and Stock-raiser, Section 24, Post-office, Katterman)

Mr. Aingell is one of those individuals, too few in number, who very properly and sincerely recognize that a thorough and complete education is as necessary to a successful career in agricultural pursuits as in any other calling in life.  And the results which have attended him in more recent years amply bear out the truth of the statement.  Born in Logan county, Ky., Mr. Aingell first saw the light September 19, 1842, one of three children in the family of his parents, Presley and Caroline Rose Aingell.  The former was also a native of Logan county, Ky., the son of William Aingell, an early settler of that State, who assisted to build a fort at Danville, and afterwards in 1818 located where Russellville now stands, where he also helped in the erection of a fort.  Presley Aingell gave his attention to farming until his death in 1857; politically he was a Whig.  His wife was the daughter of Edward Rose, originally from North Carolina, also a pioneer in Kentucky; she preceded her husband to the grave some years, dying in 1852.  Of their other children Nancy A. became Mrs. H. B. Tully, her husband dying in 1877, and she now lives near her brother; Lucy F., wife of J. F. Tully, resides in Logan county, Ky.  Mr. Aingell was brought up on a farm to a knowledge of hard work, and had excellent facilities for acquiring an education, attending for some time Cottage Home College, under the instruction of Prof. Shields.  In December, 1857, upon going to Russellville he became deputy clerk of the county court under J. W. Winlock, and on account of war troubles remained in that city some time.  Subsequently he married Miss Fannie Lyne, daughter of James M. and Mary Lyne, nee Duncan, the latter of whom was prominently connected with the Moreheads and Fuquas of Kentucky.  Chas. T. Morehead was lieutenant-governor of the State and Maj. Morehead was a Mexican veteran and afterwards for several terms a member of the State Legislature.  President Fuqua, of Bethel College, was an uncle of Mrs. Aingell.  Mr. A.’s first wife died in 1875, leaving three children, Mollie S., James W. and Charles H.  In September, 1882, he was again married, to Miss Anna Northington, daughter of C. F. Northington, formerly of Port Royal, Tenn.  They have one child, Joseph R.  Mr. A. is Republican in politics, a member of the A.O.U.W., and also belongs to the Baptist Church.  He owns a valuable farm of 300 acres, which by his ability, good judgment and individual industry is well conducted.  Socially he is held in high esteem only less than as a citizen.




Excerpts from information provided by Layne Aingell:

My grandfather was Bob Aingell of Eufaula, Oklahoma, son of Charles H. Aingell.  My grandmother was Nonie Grayson Aingell, granddaughter of Chief GW Grayson of the Creek Tribe.  Charles H. Aingell died when my grandfather was about 13-14 years old.  Grandfather was raised by an Uncle John after his mother died when he was about 17.  I’ve found nothing on why they moved from Missouri to Indian Territory, but according to the Indian Journal’s obit of Mattie, they had lived in Eufaula since its “early days."
