Laura Ingalls Wilder

By Jennifer Kenny
1     Laura Ingalls Wilder was a famous author. She was born on February 7, 1867. Her parents were Charles and Caroline Ingalls. Laura had an older sister named Mary. Laura was born in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. The family moved to Chariton County, Missouri, the year after she was born.
 
2     After Missouri, the Ingalls family moved to the prairies, a few miles from Independence, Kansas. There Charles, with the help of his friend, Mr. Edwards, built a house and stable. As if life weren't difficult enough, the family came down with malaria during this time.
 
3     In 1870, right after their third daughter, Carrie, was born, the family heard rumors that the government was about to force them to leave and open the land for homesteading. Therefore, the family left their home and moved back to their old home in the Big Woods. Caroline was very happy to be back near her extended family and have the children in school. Charles, though, remained restless and wanted to go west. So the family did.
 
4     In 1874, Laura's family settled on a small farm in Walnut Grove, Minnesota. Charles built a house for them. They joined the church led by Reverend Alden. The children attended school. Things were looking better. Unfortunately, the fantastic wheat crop was destroyed by grasshoppers.
 
5     In 1875, a son named Charles Frederick was born. Sadly, the baby died. The family moved again to Burr Oak, Iowa. There they helped friends manage a hotel. Another child named Grace was born there in 1877. Still, the family was restless, so they returned to Walnut Grove. There Charles did carpentry, odd jobs, and ran a butcher shop.
