Actually, this name was in the series about [name]Laura[/name] Ingalls [name]Wilder[/name]'s great grandmother who was born and raised in [name]Scotland[/name] and migrated to [name]Boston[/name], massachusetts in the USA. I have been reading all of the [name]Little[/name] House series to my daughter. She loves them. I think the author’s name is [name]Marie[/name] [name]Wilkes[/name].
