|Contextual Notes||Dyea is located at the mouth of Taiya River, 3 miles northwest of Skagway. It was formerly a Chilkat Tlingit Indian village that became noted during the Yukon gold rush. The name seems to have been derived from the Indian name "Dyaytahk." Dyea was the port of entry to the Dyea Trial through Chilkoot Pass, one of the most popular routes to the Klondike. After the construction of the White Pass and Yukon Railroad in 1902, the town began to decline, and the Dyea post office was closed in that year. [Source: Donald Orth.

Henry C. Ingram was born in California in May 1858. Before moving to Alaska in 1897 with his wife Martha and his son Everett, he was living in Seattle. In 1900, he and his family were living in Dyea. His occupation outside of Alaska is listed as drayman, but his occupation in Alaska is listed as merchant.
