Not trying to stir up trouble.
I'm curious what religion Rev. Aldan was?
The characters seem to follow similar to some Catholic doctrine, but not for the most part.
Just curious.

Well, since he married they certainly weren't Catholics. They might have been Presbyterian--which I think is the religion that the real Laura followed.

Reverend Alden


Reverend Edwin H. Alden, born in Windsor, Vermont, on January 14, 1836, was the minister of the Congregational Church in Walnut Grove in On the Banks of Plum Creek. This is the first time Laura writes of going to church. Rev. Alden was a home missionary -- he had a church in "the East", but was involved in planting new churches, such as the one in Walnut Grove, on the western frontier.
The Ingalls family formed a close friendship with Rev. Alden during their years in Walnut Grove, and were pleasantly surprised when he showed up on their doorstep in Dakota Territory, as recorded in By the Shores of Silver Lake.
Rev. Alden held the first church service in De Smet in the Ingalls home (the Surveyors House) in February 1880, but then went north and became an Indian agent in what would later become North Dakota. He married twice, and had two children. He died May 6, 1911, in Chester, Vermont.

Thanks for the research! It's cool to see that the people in LHOTP were not so fictional.

Some of them were fictional (like the Garveys, Dr. Baker, Grace Snyder or the Sanderson), some were not fictional (like the Ingallses, Mrs. Beadle, the Oleson's-Ownes, Almanzo) and others are semi-ficitionals, like Isaiah Edwards, Rev. Alden, Johnny Johnson and other characters.
