Police magistrate.

Born at Shoal Lake, Manitoba on 27 June 1885, son of William M. Ingersoll (1856-1912) and Elizabeth G. Ball (?-1890), he was educated at Shoal Lake and at St. Catharines, Ontario, leaving the Central High School at the age of 14. He subsequently learned steam engineering then farmed for eight years before being appointed a provincial police magistrate at Shoal Lake, taking over from his late father. He was also involved in real estate transactions, at Shoal Lake and in Saskatchewan. On 8 October 1912, he married Helen Ryan at Winnipeg. He was a member of the Independent Order of Foresters and the Anglican Church.
