Brothers, Taken from Wikipedia and obituary from a website. Charles Phillip Ingalls was born on January 10, 1836 and passed away on June 8, 1902. He was the father of Laura Ingalls Wilder, known for her Little House on the Prairie series of books. Ingalls is depicted as the character "Pa" in the television series "Little House on the Prairie". Ingalls was the second of nine children of Lansford Whiting Ingalls (1812–1896) and Laura Louise Colby Ingalls (1810–1883), both of whom appear (as "Grandpa" and "Grandma", respectively) in the book Little House in the Big Woods. Lansford was born in Canada; Laura was born in Vermont and was a descendant of Edmund Rice, an early immigrant to Massachusetts Bay Colony. Lansford's mother was Margaret Delano, of the famed Delano family, and was a descendant of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren.

Charles Ingalls, the original all-American badass, he stacks feed bags with broken ribs so you might as well give up now. We're not worthy.
True or False: Charles "Pa" Ingalls is one of the greatest TV dads ever. 14 hours of start now!
Watching Little House on the Prarie and noticed Charles Ingalls "Pa" rides bareback
- Martins barn! Isn't that just wonderful? Could you please ask Charles if he would be willing to help in on the new barns
I couldn't stand all the people! Beggin' wasn't fun..and it sure was noisy...seems just like yesterday we were--
Yeah, so am I.. I couldn't stand workin' at that hotel!
I sure do, through thick an thin! *they arrive at the pond and he cats his pole out* Im glad we moved from Winoka..
(Puts an arm around you) Well you don't gotta worry about your past anymore son, you've got your real family now!
--all of you! I remember the orphanage, I never felt that and I guess no one felt to to me either *shrugs*
*Nods understanding* I guess you're right, and I suppose it works like that on a lot of ways...I sure do feel loved with--
That's how I knew! It's just a feeling you get, and you know they're the one!
And that's when you knew she was the one? Sounds kinda complicated..but I guess it won't be when it's my turn..
(Chuckles) Well, your ma says we're kindred spirits. We just know each others thoughts! I fell in love with you ma --
(He smiles at you) I'm your pa, that's what I'm here for! (He grabs his own pole and heads toward the creek with you)

You're right...he ain't like that at all! She's real nice..
Well that's a good start! I don't think she'll end up anything bad, Albert.. Don't let this situation break your trust
Im just afraid she's gonna turn out bein' know she even let me carry her books for her!
(Chuckles) well Amanda seems like a very nice girl, I wouldn't give up on her because of all of this.
They are! Edith's real nice and all but her and Andy cause trouble..I don't even like Amanda anymore..after this--
(Shakes his head) Andy and that girl seem to be causin a whole lot of drama these days!
--and Mrs. Oleson hit Edith over the head with a broom, Nellie was yellin' and Mr. Oleson was panickin' too..
*nods* At the mercantile..Andy and Edith walked in and a big fight broke out, Andy punched Willie and knocked him out--
(Shakes head) No, I don't believe he did either. Did you see the fight? Where was it?
You're right Pa, I bet things are back to normal! You shoulda seen Willies nose though...he may be ornery sometimes but--
Oh, I'm sure things have been worked out. It can't be that bad! Reverend is there after all to sort it out (Chuckles)
*smiles* Sounds great to me! *He frowns slightly* I wonder how everything is back home..I sure hope things are ok..
Well, I thought we could put in a good day of fishin'! Seems like the perfect day to just sit by the creek.
*laughs and warms his hands on the fire* So what are we gonna do today Pa? Any more campin' things?
(Chuckles) Well good thing neither of us snore, gives us all a break from it!
I wouldn't doubt it! Once there was a thunder storm, the thing is that Laura's snorin' was louder!
(Chuckles) You're right son, I noticed that too. You know we can hear her from our bedroom?
*He rubs his eyes and walks out of the tent* Mornin' Pa, ya know I sleep good out here! It's quiet without Laura's snorin'!
(He comes back to the camp site after his morning walk to see still sleeping) Guess that huntin tired him out!
*She smiles softly and takes you in her arms* We understand that you've been busy Charles, springtime is busy at the mill
It's been awfully busy at the mill these days.. Don't mean to keep myself so distant from my family!

Good mornin thar Charles. How are ya on this beautiful day
for most people, where are all the Charles Ingalls morals and values?
Watching Little House on the Prairie. I want a relationship like Caroline & Charles Ingalls.
I just want a man like Jean Valjean or Charles Ingalls. Is that too much to ask?
Charles, was wondering if I might stop by your home on Saturday to discuss something with you.
*Sighs* Yeah we will...there's a lot to be prayin' for right now with all these injuries..
That's for sure.. we'll have a lot of prayin' to do the next few days!
*nods looking down the road* I kinda feel bad for Nellie, she must have fell hard!
I'll probably stop in tomorrow before work and check on Nels.. he can't be handling it
Yeah we sure will...I just hope this ain't some prank of Willies *sighs*
Boy is that ever a shame.. we'll have to stop in sometime for a visit once we get settled..
--lost her memory and everything! He seems real sorry about it though!
That's what Willie says, he says she fell because he was callin' her a horse, guess she--
(As they ride along, he remembers hearing Willie talk about Nellie) Is what Willie was
*He makes sure she's bundled and holds on* Ok Pa I think she's warm!
Make sure you keep her warm back there, it'll be a cold and bumpy ride back
*Sits by Carrie looking down at her and feeling sorry*
(He places Carrie in the back of the wagon and then sits up at the reigns)
Yes, we'd better do that. She'll like bein' in the comfort of her own bed again. (He goes back inside to get her)
*smiles laughing through her worry* That's right, she will be just fine..I suppose we should go get her and brig her home..
You're right.. remember when she fell down that old well? If she was strong then, she'll be mighty strong now.
He is our daughter, we will love her the same even if she's blind, she is strong willed I know she will be alright!
You're right darlin'... we've just gotta.. at least try, to be strong.
Charles if this is god will...we can't change it...if Carrie is meant to be blind then we can't change that!
First our son, then Mary.. And now Carrie.. Its overwhelming, Caroline..
*I don't move. I just stay where I am not making a sound*
Be strong for your parents Albert, Laura *walks out with Mary*
He's a strong man...he will be ok *cracks up an walks outside with Charles*
*Nods* And poor Pa...he's takin' it real hard...
I guess all we can do is hope for the best.
*frowns sadly* Mary and I had better let you take her home now..
Exactly.. Our poor little girl (He leaves the office and walks outside)
Your ma is right, no one could've known she'd hit her head...
Dont blame yourself...either of you! This was an accident nothing more...!
I shoulda waited outside with ya, I didnt have to go in the mercantile...

Does Anyone Remember Little House On The Crap, I Mean Prairie? Little House on the Prairie is an American Western drama television series, starring Michael Landon, Melissa Gilbert, and Karen Grassle, about a family living on a farm in Walnut Grove, Minnesota, in the 1870's and 1880's. The show is an adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's best-selling series of Little House books. Television producer and NBC executive Ed Friendly became aware of the story in the early 1970's. He asked Michael Landon to direct the pilot movie, who agreed on the condition that he could also play Charles Ingalls. The regular series was preceded by the two-hour pilot movie, which first aired on March 30, 1974. The series began on the NBC network on September 11, 1974, and ended on May 10, 1982. During the 1982-83 television season, with the departure of Michael Landon and Karen Grassle, the series was broadcast with the new title Little House: A New Beginning. In 1997, TV Guide ranked the two-part episode "I'll Be Waving As You ...

That would be wonderful Carrie! -she walks with Carrie into the kitchen-
I hope you're just looking, Charles. The purchase of something like a new icebox will set your family back even further.
(The mercantile quiet, free of activity for now. Charles wonders how he'll pay for such a wonderful anniversary present for .)
(Charles eyes glance over at the pricing section of each model he has in mind. His brow slowly turns upward at their expensive prices.)
(Charles sees the more simple models of ice boxes and smiles knowing how having such a luxury would make Caroline's life allot easier.)
(Charles gets to the section where the ice boxes and other kitchen gadgets are listed with artist ink drawings. Many models of ice boxes.)
Thanks Nels. (Watches Nels walk in back. The floor boards a bit creaky, Charles stands at the catalogs and looks through them.)
You're very welcome Charles. Please take your time with the catalogs. I'll be in the back room if you have any questions.
That's what I understand about it. I'm not much the mechanic Charles. That's more your line of work. But it's a good machine.
(Charles looks over the fancy red painted brass hinged 6 compartment ice box, marvels at how it operates.) (Stoops to examine.)
That's a fine gift Charles. We've had ours for several years now. It keeps food nice and cold.
Well what did you have in mind Charles?
Congratulations Charles. I wished Harriet had that problem. She tells me everything. Too much! (smiles)
Oh fine Charles. Just me and my clumsy feet. Harriet complains about that often. How can I help you?
Thats right Carrie! Ill go make you a nice meal Charles, you must be starving!
(Gives his head a pat) Hope you've been good to your ma and sisters! Now what's for supper, I'm starved!
Oh thank thank the lord Charles I was so worried! Albert yes he's home!
According to At your exact age (today I'm 54 years and 242 days), Michael Landon died of pancreatic cancer. He was an actor who played Little Joe on "Bonanza" and Charles Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie". Appreciate every day this side of the sod!
(Chuckles) He ain't coming home, he IS home right now!
Partly, but mostly why I was gone so long was because it took longer than I thought to persuade Jonathan to come home (grins)
Were you caught in the blizzard! Oh I was so worried and the children have been worried!
I'm just fine darlin', and I'm sorry you were so concerned. I would've sent a telegram if I had the chance!

(Hears squeal as she sits at the table waiting for her hot cocoa as a reward for a job well done. Charles and Caroline hug.)
Oh Charles! (giggles) Between the 2 of you, I don't know who's worse. You and cookies, or Carrie and chocolate!
(It's just 1 of the many reasons why she loves Charles so much. Over the years they've endured many difficult times and wonderful ones too.)
Ok now sweety keep your hands still. Go slow. (Charles wraps his big hands around little hands as they milk Elise slowly.)
(Sees Charles teaching little how to milk Elsie the cow. Charles patient, seated on a small stool.)
(Ma bundles Carrie warmly with scarf, mittens and wool hat. Charles takes Carrie's hand at the door.)
Oh Charles... would you mind letting Carrie help? She so wants to be a part of things and feel like a big girl.
Hears exclaim: "I wanna help Pa!" (Carrie's hands up from height chair gleefully. Charles grins and looks up at Caroline.)
Fern wants to make improvements to the house more than I do. I start counting the bills. I wish that I was a little more handy with carpentry. Our ancestor Noah was handy with carpentry. Charles Ingalls was a guy that I can respect from History. He had a lot of common sense and was a skilled carpenter. Great Grandpa H.C. Gust could build things. His son, Karl Gust and Ron Ihler built a barn for my dad in 1970. Dad has done some carpentry with Harold Adolph and John France. In 1976, Dad and Harold were remodeling our house. About the same time I was watching the silent Laurel and Hardy movie ,Finishing Touch where Ollie and Stan tried building a house and ended up with a truck rolling into the house and destroying it.
I'm in that family! My grandpa Larry Ingalls is a descendant of Charles Ingalls.

some things to think about Christmas!!!: “Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.” ― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” ― Charles Dickens “Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ― Bob Hope “One can never have enough socks," said Dumbledore. "Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn't get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Merry Christmas everyone!
