Ingram Cemetery is located in Pike County, Mo., one mile north of the intersection of roads O & PP (New Liberty Church), behind the barn in back of the old house on the Brandenburg Dairy Farm.  There is a story that has been handed down through the owners of the dairy farm of a young girl that died of rabies who is buried in the cemetery.  It was copied in November, 1975 by Mr. & Mrs. Floyd Stamps and Mr. & Mrs. Don Lotton.  After cutting the brambles, etc. in the cemetery, most of the stones had to be dug up.  The cemetery is in Hartford Township, East part, T51N-R3W, in Section 56 [sic]. [The Pike Co. Map shows NO Section 56; sections only go up to 36.]

The townships of this part of Missouri were once divided into four great divisions (when Pike County was still part of the Louisiana Purchase), known as Cape Girardeau, Sainte Genevieve, Saint Louis and Saint Charles. Once Pike County was established in 1818, it contained four of its own townships: Buffalo, Calumet, Mason and Peno. In 1981 there are 10 townships within Pike County, legally designated as Ashley, Buffalo, Calumet, Cuivre, Hartford, Indian, Peno, Prairieville, Salt River and Spencer.
