Here we see a better picture of "Ma and Pa" Ingalls in 1879, right after he accepted a railroad job in the eastern Dakota Territory.  He would file a formal homestead request later that winter for land in De Smet, South Dakota, and the entire family would be moved there by 1880.  


Laura and Almanzo in their first year of marriage, likely 1885 or 1886. 



Almanzo and his two brothers, Perley and Royal in 1890.
