Laura Ingalls Wilder
Author of "Little House on the Prairie"


The above line of descent is from Notable Kin 2, by Gary Boyd Roberts. I have received an e-mail claiming this line of descent is wrong and that the above 6-Margaret Delano was daughter of Jonathan Delano, b 1735, son of Jabez Delano, brother of 5-Jonathan Delano above. Further, this assertion is that the above Jonathan-5 Delano married Susannah West and had no known male children.This adds a generation to the above - but still leaves Laura Ingalls Wilder as a Partridge/Tracy descentant. This e-mail cited no specific sources, but referred to an emminent New England genealogist as having made this discovery. Further information is invited.
