Little House on the Prairie Wiki

Charles Frederick "Freddie" Ingalls was the fourth child of Caroline and Charles Ingalls.


Charles was born about one year after the Ingalls' arrival in Walnut Grove and was the son that Charles had always wanted. Charles adored him, making Laura jealous. He died shortly after his birth when he was not gaining any weight but eating a lot. He had a low red blood cell count. Later, Laura blamed herself for his death by not praying for his good health. Charles Frederick was the only natural-born male child Charles and Caroline ever had. Caroline visits his grave during her pregnancy with Grace.
