First Families in Vanderburgh, IN
Submitted by Ted Inwood
My name is Theodore Allen Inwood. I currently live in Lebanon, IL with
my wife Karla Sue (Taylor) Inwood and have lived in Crafton, PA (a
borough located on the western edge of Pittsburgh) and prior to that,
My Great, Great, Great Grandparents (William and Hannah (Chuter) Inwood arrived in Evansville in August, 1819 as identified in the Bio of Peter Heubner (see below). William and Hannah immigrated from the Parish of Godalming, Surrey County England where he was a pit sawyer. William and Hannah’s children married and reared families in Vanderburgh County with burials in the McCutchinville Methodist Church Cemetery.
My GG Grandfather, William (son of William & Hannah) married Jane Ashley and was a prominent merchant in Evansville. My Evansville ancestors are buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery.

My G Grandfather, Edward Josephus Inwood (son of William & Jane (Ashley) Inwood) married Harriet Lincoln Nickerson whom he met while in school at Denison Bible College, Granville, Ohio; now Denison University.
Harriet (Nickerson) Inwood’s father purchased a neighboring farm on the next road over from his farm for his daughter and son-in-law to homestead. The two mile long gravel road was subsequently named Inwood Road and remains the same today along with the Inwood Farm located in Chester Township, Clinton County, Ohio. I was fortunate to grow up on the same farm.

My GGG Grandmother’s maiden name is incorrect in the article above. AS READS: “*Hannah (Chester) Inwood* “ SHOULD READ: “*Hannah (Chuter) Inwood*” Her maiden name is correctly spelled Chuter as identified in her marriage certificate.
