Happy Birthday Grace Ingalls. Born on May 23rd, 1877, she was the youngest child of Charles and Caroline. She went to Redfield College to become a teacher and taught in several country schools. Just like Carrie, Grace was interested in history, reading and writing. They both helped with the 50th anniversary edition of The De Smet News that was published in 1930.
