[[folder: Rose Wilder]]
Laura's daughter and main character of the spin off series 'The Rose Years'.

* BrainyBrunette: Like her Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, she is a very studious and thoughtful pupil and does become a writer in her own right.
* ChildProdigy: Combines three years of Latin study into ''one''.
* DeterminedHomesteadersChildren
* OnlyChildSyndrome: The sole protagonist with no siblings, which is quite a contrast to her parents-- Laura had three sisters while Almanzo had three sisters ''and'' two brothers.
* PluckyGirl
* TheSmartGirl

[[folder: Rose Royal Wilder]]
Laura's daughter Almanzo's older brother. He hassles Almanzo somewhat, but they get along well. Unlike Almanzo, he has no love for the hard work involved in farming and main character of the spin off series 'The Rose Years'.

storekeeper. Royal moves to her parents-- Laura had three sisters while De Smet about the same time Almanzo had three sisters ''and'' two brothers.and Eliza Jane do, and owns the town's feed store.

* AdventureRebuff: When Almanzo initially proposes going to find the wheat, Royal wants to be the one to go with him, but Almanzo says one of them has to survive for their parents' sakes.

* PluckyGirl
TheCaretaker: When Laura and Almanzo come down with diphtheria, he's the one who comes out from town to nurse them, figuring that he's single and there's no one he can spread it to.
* TheSmartGirlThoseTwoGuys: He and Almanzo sometimes come across as such, from Laura's point of view.
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: Twice. First, Almanzo names a mule "Roy" after him, probably meant to be unflattering. Later, he names a colt "Royal," saying that Royal was the crown prince of his family and that this colt would be so of the Wilders' horses-- this was probably meant to be flattering.



[[folder: Caroline Quiner Ingalls]]
Laura's mother and main character of the spin off series ''The Caroline Years'' about her childhood on the Western frontier.

* BrainyBrunette: Was a schoolteacher, a scholar, and even utilizes her smarts to make a great variety of food and help run the farm.
* BewareOfTheNiceOnes: Gentle, ladylike Ma shocks Laura when she remarks with unusual fierceness that Almanzo, who is courting Laura, is likely to get Laura's neck broken driving her around behind half-trained horses and she hopes he breaks his own first. ''Ouch.''
* DeterminedHomesteadersWife: Practically the trope namer.
* DeterminedHomesteadersChildren: Like her daughter she grew up on the Western Frontier.
* CountryMouse: When she visits her aunt and uncle in the city. She grows out of it though.
* ParentsAsPeople: Laura didn't sugar coat the fact that sweet, gentle Ma was also unabashedly racist when it came to Native Americans.
* PluckyGirl: The death of her father, moving across Wisconsin, new changes, moving around the wilderness, a long winter, starvation, and a loose log don't keep Ma down very long.
* ProperLady: As a child and later, an adult. Laura comments on it frequently.
* {{Schoolmarm}}: Unlike her daughter, she genuinely loved teaching, and giving it up to get married and follow Charles wherever he wandered was a difficult decision.
* TheSmartGirl: The most intelligent of her sisters and even goes to the city to further her studies.
* SilkHidingSteel: Seems sweet as pie at first glance... then you realize she's spent her life hiking across the Wild West, facing Indians, wolves and bandits.
* TextileWorkIsFeminine: Subverted. Although she's an accomplished seamstress, she actually hates sewing as much as Laura.

* PluckyGirl: Encouraged by her mother, and passed on to her daughters, granddaughters, and great-granddaughter.
* RegalRinglets: Her curls are from her Mother, but they're more controlled and girly than her boisterous mother's ever were.

[[folder: Martha Morse]]
Laura's great grandmother and main character of the spin off series ''{{Literature/The Martha Years}}'' about her childhood in Scotland.

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Grisie's girly girl. Martha likes footracing and playing with the village boys. Grisie prefers to stay inside sewing.
* UptownGirl: Again for Lew, as Martha is the daughter of a landowner and he's working class.
