INGALLS TO ABBOTT TO STEARNS TO NANCE CONNECTION
I was researching my family tree when I happened upon the name of Ingalls. Naturally this peaked my interest and I decided to follow that line. This is what I found (short version):
Laura Elizabeth Ingalls-Wilder, daughter of Charles and Caroline Ingalls. Henry Ingalls and Sarah Farnum, Charles Ingalls' GGGGG-grandpa and GGGGG-step-grandma. Before or after Sarah Farnum married henry she was married to George Abbott, Great Grandpa to Sarah Abbott, wife of Josiah Stearns, who was GGG-grandpa to John Dump Stearns, Dad to Mary Emily Stearns, wife of Alvy Nance, who was my Great-grandpa.
If this helps any:
Josiah Stearns 1732-1788
John Dump Stearns 1843-1893
Alvy Nance 1878-1958
