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. Later, Laura blamed herself for his death by not praying for his good health. Charles Frederick was only natural-born male child Charles and Caroline ever had. Caroline goes and visits his grave during her pregnancy with Grace.

  • Which death is the saddest?

    • But the SADDEST is when they say that Albert might die because of his illness. :(
    • I just thought of two more pretty sad deaths; Alice Garvey and the Kendell baby, two main characters who appeared in more than two episodes.
