Ingalls Connection. .
My Grandmother (Abbie Mable) was an Ingalls, daughter of William Harrison Ingalls, she was born in Iowa, about 1883, moved with her family, to Todd County Minnesota, late in the 1800's, after graduating from high school, she took the necessary course's to become a teacher, teaching school for only a couple years, when she married Ralph Kier Orr, a local farmer in Eagle Valley Township.
They farmed in Eagle Valley, for many years, raised a large family, and over the years they acquired and incorporated several smaller farms, making it into a rather large farming operation.
In 1937, Ralph Kier, passed away, but Abbie and her sons, continued the farming operation, which consisted of both dairy and beef, as well as many acers under cultivation.
In 1956, Abbie Orr passed away, and the Orr family farm (farms) were eventually sold off, as the next generation, were not interested in farming.
Some descendants of Ralph and Abbie Orr, still live in that area, but have pursued other lines of work.
