[488] Data from Rick Ingersoll,

"Genealogy of the Ingersoll Family in America"
Lillian Drake Avery
Frederick H. Hitchcock, Grafton Press, New York, 1926
pp. 27-28: "Richard Ingersoll (Richard, Richard, John, Richard), born June, 1705;
bapt. Oct. 5, 1712 at Salem, Mass. The next mention of his name is in several deeds
given in 1733 and another given May 17, 1735 when Ruth Ingersoll, widow, John Ingersoll,
and Richard Ingersoll, cordwainers, all of Salem, and Sarah, wife of John, sell to Benjamin
Gerrish a house and lot in Salem, formerly Richard Ingersoll's. He evidently followed the
Cresseys and his brother John to Connecticut. He located in Tolland County and probably
married there about 1743-4, Zipporah Smith, born Mar. 3, 1726; died Feb., 1815. About 1773
or 4 he removed to Petersham, Mass.; bought land and a mill and carried on the business of
a farmer and miller until 1778 or 9, when he returned to Tolland and died there Jan., 1785
(headstone). Mrs. Zipporah Ingersoll married about 1789, Deacon Ebenezer Mason of the
Ashford (Conn.) church. He died about 1800. Zipporah (Ingersoll) Mason is buried by the side
of Richard Ingersoll in the Tolland cemetery."

Helen Schatvet Ullman
Connecticut Nutmegger, v36, pp559-564 (Mar 2004)
"Zipporah Smith did not marry William Watkins. She married (1) about 1744, as his second
wife, Richard Ingersoll of Tolland, Connecticut. After his death in January 1785 at age
76, Zipporah married (2), about 4 December 1789, Deacon Ebenezer Mason of Ashford, brother
of Zipporah's sister Sarah's husband, Solomon Mason. Zipporah died on 20 February 1815 at
age 89 and was buried beside her first husband in Tolland."
