    Oops..Should have posted my question here: What happened in Burr Oak (was that the town?) that was sad??

    While the Ingalls family was traveling to Burr Oak, their son Charles Fredrick Ingalls died from an unspecified illness. He is burried in/near Zumbro Falls MN, but I think his grave is unmarked. See
    Life in Burr Oak was a struggle financially and emotionally. You can pruchase a booklet from the Burr Oak homesite called “The Iowa Story.”
