Charles Frederick "Freddie" Ingalls
[Add A Photo]
Charles Ingalls and his family visited his older brother Peter and his family living around South Troy MN.on 27th august 1876 little Freddie, Charles' and Caroline's only son, died aged nearly 10 months. A few weeks later they left the area for Burr Oak IA. Freddie was buried locally but no one knows where. At South Troy is a display, remembering Laura's family's time here. On the board is a copy of Freddie's death certificate. There are several local cemeteries but none of them record the burial of Freddie Ingalls. However, the register at Pleasant Prairie (Dale) cemetery shows signs of neglect at that time and subsequent writing up by a later keeper. Also a badly damaged marker of the type used for children at that time has been found there. Any identifying inscriptions on the marker have crumbled away with the damage but must be that of a child who was buried there but quickly abandoned and not looked after. Is this Freddie Ingalls' grave marker? Whether it is the stone belonging to Freddie Ingalls or that of another small child, it is a fitting remembrance for all the small children who lost their lives while their families established these frontier communities.
