Conflicting Evidence or "Who's Your Daddy"!

Conflicting Evidence

Searching for the father of Nathan Thomas Ingle b. bef.  1800 d. b. 1830 - probably in the Jefferson Co., Ky area.  Nathan was married to Nancy Hancock on 29 Mar 1821 in Jefferson Co., KY.  I have never been able to find him enumerated in a Census, which leads me to believe that he was not the H of H in the 1820 census and was deceased prior to the 1830 census.  One brother/cousin was married to a Booker female in 1819 in Jefferson Co., Ky;  sister/cousin married a Hancock male in 1820 in Jefferson Co., Ky.  Her marriage record show her father, William Ingle, as giving consent for this marriage.  Three of his brothers/cousins were married to Chastain sisters between 1824 & 1830 in Henry Co., Ky .
Who's your Daddy!
There seems to be two different possibilities for Nathan's  father, each with their own evidence.  I will start with:
1.)  Henry George Ingle b. Aug 1761 in Va. d. aft. 1840 census in Russell Co., Va.
I have never found a record for Henry George Ingle farther west than Floyd/Perry Co., KY.

2.)  William Engle/Ingle b. ? d. bef. Sep. 1823 - Below is the Inventory Settlement for William together with a post I put on for a site I had at the time on the Ingle Family:
I am extremely excited about this find.   I believe this is the William Ingle that I have been searching for that was in the 1810 & 1820 Henry County Kentucky census.   
 You will note that Henry Ingle was the Admin. of William Ingle's estate and I believe that this is Henry Payne Ingle.   Although there were only initials for the people that purchased items from the sale of his estate I believe we know who those people are:
 W. Ingle - William Howells Ingle
N. Ingle - Nathan and/or Neeley Ingle
H. Ingle - Henry Payne Ingle
P. Ingle - Mary "Polly" Chastain-Ingle wife of William Howells Ingle
B. Handcock - Benjamin Han(d)cock husband of Winney D. Ingle
 I feel that this Inventory and Settlement goes a long way in substantiating the fact that this William Ingle was the father of the aforementioned Ingle family members rather than Henry George Ingle.   I also believe that there is a familial relationship between Henry George and this William Ingle, perhaps brothers (?)
 Another reason this seems logical, to me, is that ALL of these Ingle's were in the same area, Jefferson, Henry & Oldham Co's., KY, at the same time.   Henry George Ingle doesn't appear to go any farther west than, Floyd, Perry & Letcher Co's.
 I'm really sticking my neck out with this surmise in the hope that I can get you all thinking and brainstorming and hopefully get some constructive feed back.   Please take the time to look at this and give it some thought.
 I would like to acknowledge Patsy McCarty of the Louisville Genealogical Society for so graciously taking her time to go to the Jefferson County Circuit Court Clerks office, digging through the old book and transcribing this for me.   They wouldn't let her make a photo copy of the pages involved, so I have sent a request to them to see if they will send me a copy of the original.
