Birth: Jul. 15, 1851
Death: Feb. 15, 1901

George Whiting INGALLS was born 15 Jul 1851 in Concord, Jefferson, Wisconsin. He died 15 Feb 1901 in Burnett County, Wisconsin and was buried in Orange Cemetery, Burnett County, Wisconsin. George married Julia BARD

Uncle George was the one Laura was afraid of in "Little House in the Big Woods" because everyone said he was a 'wild man.' "Uncle George had run away to be a drummer boy in the army, when he was fourteen years old," Laura said. In "Pioneer Girl," her unpublished memoirs, she added, "Afterward Uncle George stole a cow and was arrested... Pa said, What could you expect of a boy who had joined the army when he was fourteen, and lived off the country all those years? In the South, when the Union soldiers wanted anything they just took it, and George had got used to that way of doing. All that was wrong with George was that he couldn't seem to realize the war was over and that he was in the North, where he couldn't live off the country any more."

Civil War service records from also indicate that George may have deserted the army. The enlistment information matches, but his middle initial is given as "A".
