Osborne Ingle was the son of John Pechin Ingle (1791-1863) of Washington, D.C. and his first wife, Susan Hawkins Baker (d. 1843). His paternal grandparents were Henry Ingle and Mary Bright Pechin, who were among the earliest residents of Washington, D.C.
Osborne was educated in private schools, at the Rittenhouse Academy in Washington, D.C., and at the Episcopal High School in Alexandria, VA, before he attended the University of Virginia in sessions 33-36 (1856-1860). At U.Va. he joined Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. He attended the Theological Seminary of Virginia in Alexandria from 1860 to 1861, then because of the outbreak of the Civil War, moved to Philadelphia Divinity School, from which he graduated in 1863. He served in a congregation in Baltimore, MD, for two years, then in 1866, accepted the rectorship of All Saints’ Protestant Episcopal Church in Frederick, MD, where he served for 44 years.
The Rev. Ingle married Mary Mills Addison (1839-1883) on 11 Oct. 1864, and the couple had the following children: Maria Ingle, later Mrs. Randall Webb; the Rev. John Addison Ingle, the Missionary Bishop of Hankow, China (d. 1903), who also attended U.Va.; Mary Addison Ingle; Elizabeth Dulaney Ingle (d. 1881); Susan Baker Ingle (d. 1882); Antoinette Addison Ingle (d. 1882); Gertrude Murray Ingle (d. 1882); Caroline Ingle (d. 1882); and Osborne Ingle (d. 1882). Sadly, Mrs. Ingle and six of their children died of diptheria between 1881 and 1883. Osborne Ingle died in 1909, and is buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Frederick County, MD.
