Hi,

My tree includes Elizabeth Ingalls, 1619-1676, Edmund Ingalls, 1598-1648, Robert Ingalls, 1555-1617, and Henry Ingalls, 1480-1555. I saw your posting indicating that you might be able to send me verification of ancestry. Is this possible with the above info?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Are you looking for a relationship with Laura Ingalls Wilder? Her Ingalls ancestry on WikiTree currently goes back only to Jonathan Ingalls, born 1750.

I believe there's been some uncertainty -- and possibly controversy -- about her Ingalls genealogy. At one time the line recorded here extended back farther than it does now -- see https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/71848/laura-ingalls-wilder-connection-global-family-reunion-steps

Hi Sally,

I would love to confidently say that there is a common ancestry however using the connection finder and the relationship finder I could not at this point find any common ancestry. It appears that you are relatively new to wikitree. So I would suggest start adding your relatives and eventually you will possibly have a connection.

For Laura we only have 4 generations of Ingallses, back to Jonathan senior b abt 1740.  That's 3rd cousins and closer.  This is the whole tree

Unless you have Jonathan in your line, you won't connect, unless somebody can improve on that.
