Laura Ingalls Wilder connection to the Global Family Reunion - 41 Steps

+9 votes

Laura Ingalls Wilder, pioneer author, is connected to the Global Family Reunion Tree! Through this path, she is 41 steps from AJ. 

Laura Ingalls Wilder -> her father, Charles Ingalls -> his father, Lansford Ingalls -> his father -> Samuel Ingalls -> his father, Jonathan Ingalls -> his father, Samuel Ingalls -> his father, Samuel Ingalls -> his father, Samuel Ingalls-> his brother, James Ingalls -> his daughter, Lydia Ingalls -> her son, Abijah Ingalls -> his son, Jeremiah Ingalls -> his son, Smith Ingalls -> his wife, Hannah Claflin Ingalls -> her sister, Phoebe Claflin Sprague -> her son, Almon Sprague -> his wife, Lucy Bentley Sprague -> her brother, Orlando Bentley -> his wife, Caroline Sears Bentley -> her sister, Elizaette Sears Austin -> her son, Duane S. Austin -> his son, Lloyd Austin -> his daughter, Gertrude Austin English -> her husband, James A. English -> his father, John Royal English -> his mother, Alice Parker Finnell -> her husband Ashford Bartlett Finnell -> his sister, Nora Finnell Ayers -> her husband, Frank C. Ayers -> his father, George Ayers -> his wife, Nancy Morrison Ayers -> her daughter, Nellie Crowley Kuntz -> her husband, Edward Kuntz -> his sister, Emma Kuntz Ferrell -> her daughter, Georgia Ferrell Hirsch Takacs -> her husband, Irwin Hirsch -> his mother, Harriet Friedenheit Hirsch -> her sister, Sophie Friedenheit Kingsbacher (AJ's 2nd great grandmother).

The one tricky bit of this connection is Samuel, father of Jonathan. Burleigh's History and Genealogy of the Ingalls Family in America says Samuel and his wife had no children, while Musgrove's History of the Town of Bristol says that it must be supposed that Samuel son of Samuel was the father of Ebenezer and Jonathan. Can someone familiar with early Massachusetts and New Hampshire verify Ebenezer and Jonathan's parentage?

How awesome would it be to connect Melissa Gilbert, the actress who played Laura on LHOTP to Laura Ingalls.. oh if only... :)
Antonia, it probably wouldn't be that difficult to make this connection. Would you like to add Melissa Gilbert's profile to get us started? I see she has three notable husbands as well, so there's bound to be a connection somewhere.
Karen, I added her to the tree, you find her profile here, shall i add you to trusted list? I cant quite figure out the husband connection.. but i think i managed to do her parents right.. was not so straight forwards as she is adopted and these "hollywood folks" doesnt use their real names most of the time it seems .. now my husband is wondering how adding one little profile has been taking me an hour ;)
