Jeremiah was the hus­band of Ma­ry Bi­ge­low.

He moved to New­bu­ry, Ver­mont, in 1787, and in 1791 be­gan lead­ing the sing­ing at the First Church there. The choir be­came quite well known, and peo­ple came from miles around to hear them.

In 1803 In­galls be­came a dea­con, though he was re­moved and ex­com­mu­ni­cat­ed in 1810.

He had run a ta­vern for a num­ber of years, but sold it and moved to Ro­chest­er, Ver­mont, af­ter his fall­ing out with the church.
