  1. My great grandfather, George Austin “Ott” Ingram (aka George W. Williams), shot & killed John Igo at Carrington’s Rock on Valentines Day 1900. It’s said that John Igo was married with two children but had an eye on Ott’s oldest daughter, Anna Liza and Ott was having none of it. Matters must’ve come to a head that fateful day in 1900 and it changed many lives and our name forever.

    John Igo’s wife remarried a few years later but she passed soon after in 1905 leaving the two Igo children orphaned.

    My great grandfather took his children to Oklahoma and changed the family name to Williams (his mother’s maiden name). Maybe the voices that haunt Carrington’s rock are not solely those of war. I will visit there someday soon.
