My husband was married in 1930 to Winona Eulalie Cordingley, daughter
of Charles Henry Cordingley and Vera Myrtle Ingo, so that is my
"relationship" with St James.
The Ingo family came from Northumberland and Durham England. The first generation in Winnipeg were Orlando Osmond Ingo born 1831 England, and his wife Mary Jane Hunt, said to have been born in London.
Some of their family were born in the Toronto area, including sons Orlando Osmond Jnr and his brother John Henry Ingo. They settled in the down town area, with the younger already married in Ontario. O O was married to Annie Stein Whittle, born 1859 at Dundas, the wife of John Henry I have forgotten. The Ingo men were the workmen involved with the Elim Chapel on Portage
Ave. Father was contractor, OO joiner, and JH, a painter, who lived about Ellen Street while O O was on Spence Street.
The story now goes to J H, who apparently had a fight with a neighbour, Mr Morrison, all because their dogs were fighting. Mr Morrison returned home for a
shotgun and killed JH > Mr Morrison was sentenced to death then got
reprieve. ( I do not have the details but by checking the burial date then the newspapers you will get the full story. Unfortunately the Police have no records for that period.
O O Jnr and his wife had another grave, near the gate on the side St ( not Doreen). They then transferred their burials to Elmwood, probably after the death of their son Ardagh, who was electrocuted while working for Manitoba Hydro. The grave at St James was then taken over by Mr and Mrs Corneil, an Ingo daughter.
The last burial in that grave being Yvonne Corneil about 20 years ago. The last generation of Ingo was another Orlando Osmond, married to Constance McKay and he died in 1965. Nowadays the Ingo family can be traced to the Kenora area. I should mention that I have been doing family history for 30 years but now my records are held by my grandson in Grand Prairie Alberta. I do not have too much about the Cordingley families, but will send you some info at a later date,
