John Ing to visit Sept. That will lie roughly Hill years since Ing, a Methodist missionary, is credited with introducing American apples io Japan Hurled Apple It is said that one Christmas Ing gave apples from the state of Washington to his students at his missionary school and one of them took his apple home to his father, who buried it in his garden. The apple germinated when spring came, the story goes, and eventually this brought wealth to the family. One biographer. Lowell Dearinger of Mount Vernon. 111., says Ing is remembered in Aomori much as is Abraham Lincoln in Illinois. Mrs. Weltin, office manager of the Quincy Society of Fine Arts, said of the prospect of a trip to Japan, "It's rather exciting." And she is ready to go. But if the province picks up the tab for all the Ing rela- tives, it may have a crowd on its hands. Descendants have been traced to southern Illinois. Missouri and Colorado, and a daughter, Lavinia, was known to be living in Evanston. 111., two years ago. Letters from Ing Mrs. Weltin said she still has about a dozen letters Ing wrote to her mother and Ing's niece, Gertrude Grady Wilson. "1 guess I have almost thrown them away a thousand times while housecleaning but now I'm glad 1 didn't." she said. She recalled that one of the letters described her great-un- cle's pleasure when the em- peror of Japan visited his school. Another told about growing apples and peaches -UPI TelCDIlolO Mrs. Margaret Wilson Weltin, officer manager of the Quincy, III., Society of Fine Arts, is a great niece of Capt.

"and said kiddingly that lie had learned that bees have something to do with growing them." Ing, the son nf a Methodist minister, is buried in a mausoleum at the Masonic and Odd Fellows cemetery at Benton, III. Some accounts say Ing was horn al Green Castle, Ind.. west of Indianapolis, in 1840. He was graduated from Indi- ana Asbury university (now DePauw But an- other biographer, Gilbert E. Bascom, who wrote "The Johnny Appleseed of said Ing was horn in the Lib- erty community .southeast of Thompsonville. 111.. in Franklin county, where he farmed acres after return- ing to the United States. Ing died June 4, 1920. Ing apparently was mis- understood by his neighbors after he came hack lo Illinois. Legend has ii that Ing brought back some statuettes from Japan and kept them in a shed near his farm home. A hired hand went to the shed to get a tool, noticed the statu- ettes and spread stories that Ing was an idol worshipper.
