We've scoured the web to try to find a better quality picture, but here we see the family of Lansford Ingalls, Laura's grandfather. Lansford was born in Quebec and was a direct descendent of a passenger on the Mayflower. In the 1840's, he moved his growing family to a little town just west of Elgin, Illinois. Laura Ingalls father, Charles, had already moved farther West when this photo was taken. There, he would meet the "quiet and proper" Caroline Lake Quiner.
