In 1815, while still a small child, the family moved to Vermont, then to Maine, and then to Sweden, New York, finally settling in Western Ontario. As a young man he acquired land in West Oxford, which he cleared and farmed He was not only a good farmer but a shrewd business man. He built one of the first grist mills in the area and also operated one of the earliest cheese factories. Ingersoll cheeses later achieved considerable fame. Andrew prospered during the Crimean War when the price of wheat rose to $3.50 a bushel. He bought more land, eventually owning some 400 acres, and built a large stone house which he named "Bleak House" after Dicken's novel. The house still stands, although the verandahs that once surrounded it have all been removed. (G. L Bodwell, 1997)spouse: Graham, Ann Sutherland (1815 - )
