Literary Figure. Ida was a friend of Laura Ingalls Wilder and appeared in several of her "Little House" books. Born in Chicago as Ida Wright, she was adopted by Rev. and Mrs. Edward Brown. The family moved to DeSmet, South Dakota where Rev. Brown helped found the Congregational Church in town. She married her beau Elmer McConnell in 1885 and they had five children: Laura, Mark, Robert, Eva and James. Ida and her family left DeSmet to move to Wisconsin, and then eventually to California, where they stayed the rest of their lives. Ida died before Laura Ingalls Wilder began writing her famous books.
