    Although loosely based on the real stories penned by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the show took many liberties with different characters. The biggest example of this is the characters of Albert Ingalls and Adam Kendall, neither of whom ever existed: Charles and Caroline Ingalls were the parents of four daughters, Mary, Laura, Carrie, and Grace; and Mary Ingalls remained single all her life.
