Story #1 By Barbara Good
Josiah was living with I believe a grand daughter at the time of his death.
Late one evening after everyone had gone to bed. Josiah woke up saying "my Martha she's calling for me". His grand daughter awoke and tried to assure him that she had passed away. He said to her "I here her she is calling me like she is lost". Again she tried to reassure Josiah that she was no longer in this world. Josiah was adamant that he knew what he was hearing and insisted that they go out to the porch to look for her. His grand daughter finally agreed and they did. Again Josiah insisted that he was hearing Martha calling to him and she's in trouble. He told his grand daughter "you go that way around the house and I will go the other and surely we will find her". She agreed to do so they met about half way around. Josiah saddened and confused finally agreed to go back in the house and go back to bed. The next morning Josiah's grand daughter went to wake him for breakfast, but Josiah was dead. He had indeed heard his Martha calling for him and he went to on his way to be with her.

Notes; Joseph Early Little lived in Abernathy Alabama when he joined the Confederate Army.
NOTES: Bryant Station Cemetery is east of the little town of Buckholts Texas on a country road. There is sign that will lead you through a cattle gate and into a cow pasture and beyond to the cemetery. The cemetery itself is fenced with barbed wire and is fairly well kept by its visitors. Be sure to check inside the mailbox for a visitor's book, you may find someone there also. Buried between Joseph and Salina is there fifth child Joseph H. Little. Joseph Early is buried on the left. To his immediate right is Joseph Harrison Little. On his right is his mother Salina. To her immediate right is Ben Johnson husband of Mamie Little the first child of Richard Newman Little. All the headstones in this cemetery are facing east, making Joseph Early the southern most of our family. They are all together on the south west corner.
Joseph was a farmer and a Primitive Baptist lay minister, called "Elder Little" Sometime after Joseph moved to Calhoun County, Alabama he married Salina Dodson on October 26, 1845, a woman (of Swedish decent according to my father William Wylie Little Sr.). She called him Joraph because of her background. Together they had 6 boys.
Story #1 By William Wylie Little Sr.
Late one evening at a time nearing the end of the war Richard and some other children who are believed to be his nieces and nephews were gathered at the dining table of there home preparing to eat there supper. Talking about how things were going and what was happening in there little world. Richard was missing his farther very much asked his mother to call his dad the way she had in the past to bring him in from the field for dinner. After some coaxing she agreed. She rose from the table and walked to the doorway leading outside. She stepped outside placing her hands around her mouth. She yelled out Whooooaaaa Joorraaff. A distant cry from the darkness was heard Wheeeaa Maw. Then there was a cold chilling silence as the hair stood up all over their bodies. Everyone scared stiff now wondering who could be coming there way and what kind of trouble would he bring with him. A shadowy figure soon appeared in the soft evening light coming up the path to the house. Could it be Joseph, the stranger grew nearer. Salina afraid and bewildered was now backing toward the open door. The figure came nearer, the chills grew stronger and everyone was silent. Salina had now backed herself well within the house as the man stepped into the doorway, everyone screamed out. From the low lamplight the stranger could now be seen. Joraph's home Salina exclaimed. Sent away from the war on furlough sickened with dropsy.
Story #2 By William Wylie Little Sr.
Days later a band of unknown raiders paid an unwelcome visit to Salina and Joseph who was now week from the sickness that fevered his body. It seems these raiders were on the run and needed a guide to sneak them past the enemy lines. Realizing that Joseph knew the area they forced him to lead them to safety. Unable to put up a fight and fearing for his and his families lives he agreed. Joseph returned home a few days later near death. Salina and the children took him into the house and nursed him back to health. It is unclear whether Joseph ever returned to the fighting in the war could well have already ended.
Story #3 By Calvin Douglas Little
Years after the war some of the children settled in the area of Milam Co., Texas Joseph and Salina joined them. There was a ferry at Bryant's Station that everyone in the area used. A bridge was built just downstream from the ferry's crossing, which was dedicated to Joseph Early Little. Joseph and Salina lived out the rest of their lives there near the banks of the Little River. Salina died on September 16, 1902 in Gause Milam Co., Texas. Joseph died later on September 5, 1905 in Milam Co., Texas. Both are buried in Bryant's Station Cemetery near the banks of the Little River.
Story #4 By Susan Little
Joseph Early Little was a champion bare-fisted fighter. After winning his last bare-fisted fight, he was walking home to his wife, Salina and the family. His clothes were so badly torn; he had to borrow clothes to wear home. While walking home, he said he literally had a call from God to preach. When he arrived home, he told his wife, Salina of the call to preach. She rejoiced, "Thank the Lord." Joseph Early did not own a Bible. One of the neighbors gave him a Bible. This is the Bible he later gave to his grandson, Clayburn Little.
More on the Bible By Susan Little
Great-grandpa Joe, Joseph Early Little, wanted the Bible to go directly to his grandson, Clayburn H. Little. When G-Grandpa Joe died, my Daddy got the Bible. The hard covers were very worn and were covered in a blue-striped fabric, like mattress ticking. I remember looking at the Bible during my childhood and teen years. Daddy passed away March 19, 1958, and my brother, C. R. Little asked our Mother, Sarah-Ethel Sandifer Little, for the Bible. It was sort of assumed that the Bible went to the son of the holder. Anyway, it was the weekend Daddy died and Mother really did not want to have the Bible leave so quickly, but it did.
Story #5 By Susan Little
I remember from stories Mother and Daddy told us: G-Grandpa Joe, Joseph Early Little, believed in life insurance for his family. The Primitive Baptist Church did not. Anyway, G-Grandpa Joe bought life insurance and was, subsequently, turned out of the organized church.
Story #6 By Susan Little
My Mother's parents frequently hosted visiting preachers when they came to Freestone County for "protracted' meetings (revivals). G-Grandpa Joe spent time with Mother's family. After one such visit, someone from G-Grandpa Joe's family came in the wagon from Milam County to get him at the Sandifer family's home (and farm) in Freestone County. Clayburn came along for the trip. He saw a young, blond, curly-haired girl on the Sandifer porch. When he got back home, he told his older sister, Lizzie Jane, about the little girl with the blond curls. He said, "When I grow up, I'm going to marry that little girl with the curls." Years later, he did. Lizzie Jane reminded everyone what Clayburn had said. Clayburn was in Freestone County to visit a cousin and they came out to the Sandifer farm. He and Mother saw each other and that was it! Mother was barely 14 and Daddy was 20. They married that summer, on July 23, 1914.

Story #8 By William Wylie Little Sr.
While living in Bell County, Joseph was old enough that he no longer worked in the fields he took care of things such as the tack and rigging for the teams and watched over the fields. Now you need to understand that when cutting leather a knife will becomes very sharp.
Joseph had put up a gate for one of his neighbors so they could get to town without having to go around several farms. He only asked that they keep the gate closed to keep the farm animals out of their crops. Well on several occasions the man's sons had come home drunk and did not shut the gate. He talked to the neighbor each time this happened. But all that was said fell on deaf ears and Joseph was finally forced to put up fence where the gate once was.
Joseph was in town along side the street whittling as many men did. Cedar was the wood of choice and the idea was to cut long very thin slivers of the wood so it curled up. Joseph was for some reason on crutches. This neighbor that he had closed out came up not seen by Joseph and kicked a crutch out from under him. During the fall Joseph cut the man he cut through his overcoat, topcoat, shirt, long handle underwear, and the man's stomach. The man's guts spilled out and he caught them in his hands. Joseph did what he could to help get the man to a wagon that would take him to the doctor. Joseph made his way to the Sheriff's office and pitched his pocketknife on the desk. He said I think I may have just killed a man. The Sheriff asked him to explain what had happened. Joseph told all that had gone on. The Sheriff handed the knife back and said well Joseph I know where you live and if anything comes of it I know where to find you.
Story #9 by William Wylie Little Sr. and Calvin Douglas Little
Just across the state line from Carroll County Georgia was Abernathy Alabama where Joseph Early Little lived when he joined the Confederate Army. He and all his sons served in the confederacy except Richard Newman Little who was too young. Near the end of the Civil War the Confederate Army was actively seeking out young boys and old men forcing them to fight and most often die for a cause long since lost. Fearing this Richard was often dressed in children's or girls clothing by his mother to keep him from being forced into the Confederate Army.
Story by Jane McEndree
There was an epidemic that killed the family in 1902 or there abouts. Everyone was drinking bad water and got typhoid fever. My grandmother, Zona, was telling me that when her Daddy {Ben Johnson} died with it, her mother was pregnant with Ben, Jr. and she had it too and nearly died and my grandmother and her sister, Martha also had it as did many of the family members. In fact, Ben Johnson had thyroid fever and went out in the cold weather that winter sick to bury one of the children in the family who had died from it and he got pneumonia from being out in the weather sick and that is what killed him.
Story By William Wylie Little and Calvin Douglas Little
Calvin "a man told me one time that Joseph had an extra thumb". Wylie "I've heard that storey too". Calvin "I had another person that told me that his sister Sarah had not seen him for years and was going on a trip to see him in a birthday or wedding anniversary. She was asked how after so many years was she going to recognize him. She replied that when he was a child he loved to play marbles so much and did it so often, that he had a growth on his thumb that she was sure that was still there"

Background & Story by Bill Gorman
The following stories were written by Bill Gorman of Plano, Texas, a gg-grandson of Sarah and Calaway. The stories of Sarah's youth in Georgia and of her Civil War trials and tribulations were passed down through the generations from Sarah through her granddaughter, Texas Penina Owen Gorman, who recorded these stories on cassette tape about 1978 with the help of her granddaughter Jane Gorman Hicks. In her later years, Sarah lived much of the time with her daughter (and Texas' mother) Arletha Stephens Owen. Sarah died in 1913 when Texas was 24 years old, thus Texas had ample opportunity to hear Sarah and her own mother repeat these stories many times and commit them to her own memory.
Sarah's Youth
Sarah Ann Little was born on July 17, 1822 in Jackson County, Georgia to Josiah Little and Martha "Patsy" Stewart (or Steward). Josiah was the oldest son of William Joseph Little and Elizabeth . According to Sarah, her grandfather was quite a wealthy plantation owner and influential member of the community where he lived. While Sarah was growing up, her father Josiah was an overseer of part of her grandfather William Joseph's extensive plantation holdings in western Georgia. Sometime in the mid-1820's, William Joseph Little and many of his married children (including Josiah) moved to Carroll County, Georgia where he received a land bounty for his service in the War of 1812 and the Creek Indian War. William Joseph set up his plantation headquarters in Carroll County near the current town of Tallapoosa. Sarah's father, Josiah Little, sold his land in Jackson County, Georgia in 1829. (Source: 15 Sept 1829, Land Index 1796-1876 Jackson Co., Georgia (Jefferson) I & J50, Little, Josiah (grantor) Cochran, Jas. (Grantee) Sells land for $280.00, recorded 2 Nov 1829).
Sometime in the early 1830's, Josiah Little moved his family to Benton County, Alabama, just across the state line from his father's plantation in Tallapoosa, Georgia. We believe it likely that he moved to land bought there by his father, William Joseph. (Josiah was listed as a resident of Benton County, Alabama when he made a land patent purchase in that county in 1840). As a teenager, Sarah was sent to live at her grandfather's plantation big house during the week in order to receive her schooling in the 3-R's as well as training on how to be a southern lady. On weekends, she would return the 15 miles back home to be with her family. According to her granddaughter, Texas, her grandfather's "Big House" was said to have 6 bedrooms, each with its own fireplace. These rooms were large enough to accommodate two or three full-sized beds. Sarah never had any chores to do, since they had servants to make the beds, clean the house and do the laundry. The kitchen had a big open fireplace where all of the cooking was done. A small pig could be roasted over the fireplace. Servants manned the kitchen around the clock, twenty-four hours a day.
Sarah had a horse, which provided her transportation between her grandfather's plantation and her father's home. On one occasion, she was riding home down a lane and there was a tree, which had fallen across the road. When she paused, a run-away slave jumped out of the bushes and attempted to take her horse. She hit the horse with her riding stick and jumped the fallen tree and rode on to her father's house, telling the story of her encounter when she arrived. Her father and several men went back and found the runaway, brought him back and tied him over a barrel where he was whipped.
Sarah's Marriage and Relocation to Alabama
Calaway "Cal" Stephens was born to Joshua Stephens and Elizabeth Morgan in South Carolina in on October 13, 1824. His family moved to Georgia sometime between 1825 and 1828 where Cal grew up. He was married to Sarah Ann Little on January 10, 1841 (source: a note in Sarah's Bible). We believe that they were married at the home of her grandfather, William Joseph Little, and they settled and began married life together in Carroll County, Georgia near where Calaway's parents, Joshua and Elizabeth Stephens lived. Their first daughter, Martha, was born in Georgia in 1842 (source: 1850 US Census). Sarah and Calaway moved to Tallapoosa County, Alabama between 1842 and 1844, apparently with (or shortly after) Cal's parents, Joshua and Elizabeth. Their next child, Mary was born there in 1844 (source: 1850 US Census). At the time of the 1850 Census, Calaway and Sarah Ann were living in Tallapoosa County, Alabama with children Martha (8), Mary (6), John W. (4) and Francis C. (2). (Note that the census taker made a mistake and spelled the baby's name as Frances C. and listed him as a female). Living next-door to Cal and Sarah in 1850 were his parents, Joshua and Elizabeth, and all of their children still at home. Sarah's parents, Josiah and Patsy Little, are also enumerated living in Tallapoosa County, Alabama in 1850. It is not known why Josiah moved from Benton County, Alabama but it is known from the 1850 census records that his oldest son, Francis Marion Little, stayed in Benton County through this period.
BLM land patent purchase records show the locations of this family over the next two years. On October 1, 1851, Calaway Stephens (a resident of Tallapoosa County, Alabama) purchased 80 acres of land in section 14, township 21-E of Tallapoosa County, AL. Then, on December 1, 1851 (just 2 months later) he bought a 40 acre land patent in Range 12, Township 14-S, Section 21 of Benton County (listed today as Cleburne County in the BLM online index). This is located in the same section of land where Sarah's father, Josiah Little bought his 80 acres in 1840. The SW corner of Cal's property adjoins the NE corner of Josiah's original 80-acre tract. Note that at this same time, Dec 1851, Josiah Little bought a second parcel of land consisting of 40 acres in Muscadine, Benton County, just a few miles from that parcel purchased by Calaway.
One year later, on December 1, 1852, Calaway is listed as living in Benton County, Alabama when he buys another 40 acres in Section 36 of the adjacent Township 13-S in Benton County (close to Oak Level). Did Calaway sell his first 80 acres in Tallapoosa County? We don't know yet. So by Christmas, 1852, we have Calaway and Sarah owning 160 acres of land and probably living with or next to Sarah's father, Josiah Little in Benton County.
We have no records of Cal and Sarah's whereabouts until the 1860 US census when they are enumerated near Courtland in Lawrence County, Alabama. In that census, Cal was listed as a blacksmith while the story told by his granddaughter Texas in 1978 was that he operated a gristmill. He probably did both. By 1860, their oldest daughter Martha has married and had left home while they had added three more children: Joseph Richard (b. 1852), Arletha (b. 1855 and the g-grandmother of this author), and Alexander (b. 1858). So, we have Sarah and Calaway with seven children and living independently away from their relatives at the start of the Civil War in 1861.
The Alabama 23rd Volunteer Infantry CSA
On November 19, 1861, Cal joined Company "C" of the 23rd Alabama Volunteer Regiment at Montgomery, Alabama. The enlistment was for a three-year period, or until the end of the war. During the fall of 1861, the 23rd trained near Mobile, Alabama and in February 1862, they relocated by railroad train to Knoxville, Tennessee. Confederate troops stationed at Knoxville guarded the Cumberland Gap, made excursions into Kentucky, and served as an occupying army to keep Eastern Tennessee from going over to the Union. Although some typhoid cases were reported prior to the 23rd leaving Mobile, by March of 1863 the 23rd and several other Alabama regiments stationed in Eastern Tennessee were decimated with an outbreak of typhoid. Hundreds were hospitalized and 16 died. During this time, Calaway was promoted to the rank of Sergeant, but he also apparently came down with typhoid and spent most of 1862 on "detached service" at the hospital in Knoxville.
In January 1863, with the pivotal battle of the Civil War shaping up in the West, the 23rd Alabama Volunteers were sent by train to Vicksburg, Mississippi. There, they fought valiantly and on one occasion, failed to receive an order to retreat. Holding their positions, they turned the battle and stayed on to fight another day. In mid-May, 1863 the final battle for Vicksburg was joined and finally, on July 4, 1863 with many wounded, low on food and no chance for reinforcements, they, along with the rest of General Pemberton's army, surrendered to General U.S. Grant. Terms of the surrender provided for the defeated CSA soldiers to be given furloughs home and then to be re-mustered and exchanged for Union prisoners who were held by the South.
After surrender, the 23rd was marched to the town of Demopolis in Marengo County, Alabama. From there, they were given a furlough to go home. After 30 days, in accordance with the surrender agreement, they were re-mustered. On September 12, 1863 they were exchanged for Union prisoners, which were being held in Southern prisons. The 23rd was re-armed and next fought at the battle of Lookout Mountain with General Hoods brigade. They were still in service in Georgia when General Lee surrendered at Appomattox in 1865. Over 1200 men served in the 23rd Alabama Volunteers during the 3-1/2 years of its existence. Only 76 were present when the unit surrendered with General Lee's army.
Calaway was promoted to Sergeant, but apparently came down with typhoid sometime after his regiment arrived in Knoxville. He was reported sick and in the hospital as late as Jan 1863 and was paid $102 for six months service on May 15, 1863.
Mystery Surrounding Calaway's Death
According to the story told by his granddaughter Texas Owen Gorman, Cal was on a furlough and contracted a fever from which he died at the place of a relative. Speculation among those hearing this story was that perhaps it was the home of his married daughter, Martha. However, recent information provided in the year 2000 to this writer by Virginia Vice Goodman of Mobile, shows that Calaway is buried in a small Stephens Family Cemetery near the Wayne community in Marengo County. This is where his parents and siblings were shown to be living in the 1860 US Census and is about 30 miles south of Demopolis where the 23rd received its furlough.
The mystery surrounding Calaway's death involves both the dates of his birth and death as shown on his tombstone and the belief by Ms. Goodman that Calaway had been married to one Polly Stephens who is also buried in the Stephens Family Cemetery near Wayne, but is not buried next to Calaway's grave. There is no evidence at all to support these beliefs, but a strong set of primary source documents to show otherwise. We will deal first with the dates on Calaway's tombstone, which show he was born on October 13, 1823 and died on July 5, 1862. Each date appears to be early by one year.
Calaway was the first person to be buried in this Stephens Family Cemetery and it is most likely that a permanent marble or granite marker was not placed on his grave until 10 to 15 years later. The size and style of his marker is identical to those of two other markers in this cemetery whose occupants were buried in the late 1870's or early 1880's. By this time, there were no persons directly related or descended from Calaway living in that area (no brothers, or sisters or children) so we believe that the persons responsible for having his marker made had little direct knowledge of these critical dates and likely did some guessing.
Although census records have no guarantee of accuracy, they are the only records we have other than Cal's grave marker and they have to be considered "primary" sources since they came from either Cal or his wife Sarah or both when they were interviewed by the census takers. Although the 1850 and 1860 US census is supposed to reflect the living status of household individuals as of June 1 of the census year, it is not clear that the dates listed for individuals were so constrained but rather reflected their age on the date of the interview. By analyzing Cal's age given in the 1850 and 1860 census along with the dates of the census interviews, we arrive at a birth time frame of the later part of 1824. This is consistent with a date of birth of October 13, 1824, which is the "official" date we are carrying for Cal in these family history records.
Now, the date of death on his tombstone (July 5, 1862) is inconsistent with his muster and pay records found in the National Archives. These records show that Cal was promoted to Sergeant on March 30, 1862 and was present for the May/June muster roll call. He is listed as absent and on detached service in Knoxville for the July/August 1862 muster, which also showed, he was last paid on Jan 1, 1862. We found no muster records for Sept-Dec of 1862. However, he was listed again on detached service at the hospital in Knoxville for the Jan/Feb 1863 muster with no record of when he was last paid. Then, on May 15, 1863 the records of the paymaster for the 23rd Regiment show that Calaway received $102 for six months pay dating from Nov 1, 1862 to May 1, 1863. His pay voucher was signed "C. Stephens". One might assume that he was paid for the first 10 months of 1862 during Nov 1862.
At this time, we believe that Cal died after May 15, 1863 and most likely during the time period between July 4, 1863 when his unit surrendered at Vicksburg and September 12, 1863 when the unit was exchanged for Union prisoners. The fact that he was furloughed during this time from a place in Marengo County very close to where he is buried is consistent with the stories told by his granddaughter Texas Owen Gorman. A date of July 5, 1864 appears to be too soon after the surrender at Vicksburg and a date during the later part of July or early August is more likely. Thus, we are carrying Cal's date of death (to our best determination from the facts) as August 5, 1863. Again, ignoring the month and year given on his grave marker.
Sarah's Civil War Trials and Tribulations
After the Battle of Shiloh, Union patrols routinely made excursions into northern Alabama. They burned Calaway's house and the gristmill in Lawrence County, AL. Sarah and her children then set out on foot for her fathers place (in Benton County in Eastern AL) and remained there (as far as we know) until the end of the war. Sarah's granddaughter, Texas Owen Gorman, told this story of Sarah's journey back to her father's place in Calhoun (Benton) County, AL. At this time Sarah's oldest daughter, Martha, was already married and living away from home. The children remaining with her and their ages were: Mary (19), John (17), Frank (15), Joe (11), Arletha (8) and Alex (5). They had no food and their belongings were just the clothes on their backs. They reportedly picked and ate wild berries and begged for milk for the children along the way. Travelers carried word of their plight to her father and he sent Sarah's younger brother (or one of his field hands) in a wagon to find them. In later years, Arletha told her daughter Texas that the greatest sight her eyes had ever seen was the day their wagon pulled into the yard of her grandfather Little's house and all his family was there waiting for them with food and shelter.
The timing of the following events is not certain, but is believed to have occurred before Sarah went to her parent's house. They had a cow, which provide the only milk for the children. Union patrols constantly came through the area scrounging for food and supplies so they had to keep the cow staked in the middle of a cane break in order to shield it from the eyes of the Union soldiers. The older boys, when going to milk and feed the cow, were instructed by Sarah to be careful to take different routes into the cane break each day so there would not be a beaten path for the soldiers to follow.
At one point (I don't know if this was during or after the war) Sarah and other widows had to travel to a distant location (supposed by steamboat or train) in order to fill out papers to qualify for food distribution. She had to leave the children at home without adult supervision. Her daughter Arletha (who lived the experience and died in 1941) said that her mother put all the children in the house and locked the doors and nailed boards over the windows to keep the small children from crawling out. At one place she fixed it up where the big children could get in and out to fetch water and empty the slop-jars. Sarah was gone for about a week. An old circuit riding man would come by each house once every day or two and check on things.
Sarah's Post Civil War Life
Sarah's exact whereabouts, from the time she reached her father's house (after she was burned out in Lawrence County) until the marriage of her three oldest sons in Newton County, Arkansas, is unknown. It is assumed that Sarah lived with her father in Benton County (later Cleburne County) for several years before moving to Newton County. We know that her second daughter, Mary, married Harvey Alexander but at this time we do not know where or when. We suspect that this was in Alabama after 1865 and that Sarah and the rest of her children followed Harvey and Mary to Arkansas prior to 1870. Sons John Wiley, Francis Calloway and Joseph Richard all were married in Newton County, Arkansas in 1870 according to county clerk records there. Four years later, her daughter Arletha married Richard Carol Owen of Newton County on January 15, 1874. During the 1880s, Sarah's children Frank, John, Mary and Arletha and their spouses and children moved to Ellis County, Texas. John moved on to Clovis, NM and Frank moved to McLain County, Oklahoma. Mary and Harvey Alexander had no children. They continued to live the rest of their lives in Ellis County. Arletha and Richard Owen stayed in Ellis County and raised a large family with many children, grandchildren and g-grandchildren being born there.
Sarah lived mostly with Arletha and Richard Owen but continued to share time with her other children. Sarah was enumerated living with them in Boone County, AR in the 1880 Census. She was also enumerated with them in Ellis County in the 1900 Census but not in the 1910 Census. Inside Sarah's Bible was a letter from the Free Will Baptist Church in McLain County, Oklahoma dated 1912 transferring her membership back to a church in Ellis County. According to her granddaughter Bell (a daughter of her son John Wiley) in a letter written to a cousin Betty Steel in 1964, Sarah was "close to the Lord" and read her Bible and prayed daily. Sarah died at Arletha's home on June 29, 1913, less than a year after moving back to Ellis County, Texas. She is buried alone in the far southwest corner of Elm Branch Cemetery, not far from the graves of Arletha and Richard and the graves of many of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Respectfully revised and submitted this 29 day of November in the year of our Lord two thousand and one.

James was a gentle man. When his granddaughter Fay was just a baby and toddler, he let her play with his glasses. She would take them out of his jacket/shirt pocket. She was the only child allowed to play with his glasses. He called her "Sock".
Grandmother "Bettie" Ingram Little whistled a lot because, when she was growing up at her parents', she was not allowed to whistle; not ladylike! Grandmother enjoyed reading so much that often, when Grandpa James Monroe and the boys came in from the fields at night, there was no supper prepared. Grandmother got so absorbed in her reading, she lost track of time and didn't cook. Remember, these were the days of cooking on a wood-burning stove and cooking a meal took a lot of time!

(Jesse had a good singing voice. His Woodman of the World gravestone says: "A voice we loved is stilled." His widow, Bunny, moved to Centerville Texas, to be near her family, the Parkers. Their youngest child, a girl named Jessie was born shortly after her father's death. That daughter, Jessie, was still living as late as 1998/99, in Louisiana. Jesse and Bunny's family included several children. Two of the granddaughters are: Sarah Maddux, resident of Tyler, Smith County, TX; and Joan Dorman, resident of Palestine Texas area.

Very little is actually known about Richard and his movements. I have never been able to find any census information in him in Mississippi. I did find him in the Milam Co., Texas Census for the year of 1900 using the name Newman. It shows his father and mother also living in the same household. All the children except two are shown. It shows that Emma had eight children with six still living, therefore there is one child missing. David is apparently already dead. Lucy Kay is also in the household, she is a sister to Emma.
He is also found in Tom Green Co., Texas in 1910 under the name Richard. With his daughter Mary and two of her children, her husband already dead. The three younger living children are in the home also. Vina is shown in the next household married to Floyd Raney and with one child, Ruth.

Story #1 By William Wylie Little Sr.
I guess this happened while they were living in Milam County. Richard always had dogs. He had to work not as pets. Richard had a dog named Fetch. Fetch was a good watchdog and when Richard was slaughtering a hog he used a sugar cure and he would have to lay the meat out on the cellar door. He would tell Fetch "now Fetch watch that meat". When they would get up the next morning. The meat would be just like they left it and Fetch would be right there with it. One day Fetch came up missing and no sign was ever found of him. At Richards Funeral a neighbor came to one of the boys and told him that Fetch had come to his house slobbering at the mouth and had jumped his dogs. This man was very afraid of rabies and killed Fetch and all of his own hounds and had gotten rid of the bodies. He also knew Richard loved his dogs and was afraid of Richard's possible reprisal and had never told until after his death.
Story #2 By William Wylie Little Sr.
I guess this happened while they were living in Milam County too. Now I told you that Richard had a great love for his dogs. But Richard would not put up with any nonsense from them either. He had recently gotten a new dog. Late one night he heard pans rattling in the kitchen. He got up to see what kind of critter was in there. So he slipped across the dog run and into the kitchen unheard by what turned out to be the new hound. The dog was very busy helping himself to the family's groceries. Richard was infuriated. So he grabbed the dog by the back legs and dragged him outside. He began flailing the dog against the ground furiously as if he was using the poor dog as an axe. Now all this raised quite a commotion and had woke the family. Richard's father Joseph lit a lamp and looked outside to see what in the world the ruckus was all about. When he saw what was happening he replied, "By gar Richard's digin a grave with a corpse".

Story by William Wylie Little Sr.
Babe got his nickname because he was very small. He was a lazy fellow often he would get a pillow and turn a chair upside down as to make a recliner. He would then sleep while his wife would work the farm. He was also a Freewill Baptist preacher.
Story By Mary Little Johnson "Mari"
I remember my dad telling me a story about feeling so frustrated and hopeless, when he was a teenager (or young adult) when Babe essentially "sold" him to Bunyan, to work for Bunyan for two years in exchange for a team of mules so he could farm. My dad said, "I knew it was for nothing because I knew he wasn't going to do anything with them mules."

Story.
Henry was one of the best oil production men in the oil business; drilled discovery well in Van, Texas oilfield; loved baseball, umpired oilfield-league baseball games; played guitar; enjoying reading and music, especially New Orleans-style jazz; grew great vegetable and flower gardens; remembered everything; told great oilfield stories as well as baseball stories. Clayburn H. Little legally changed his name as a very young boy because he didn't it. He reversed the name from H. Clayburn to Clayburn H.; thereafter, he mainly used his initials, C. H., as his name; hence, C. H. Little. In his youth his family called him Clayburn. It is said that his wife's family did not know what his (H) initial was for.
NOTES SARAH: At age 12, she was writing a Freestone Community locals columns for the Teague Texas newspaper; read her Bible throughout numerous times; enjoyed music and singing; remembered conversations word-for-word for years; told great family stories; played April Fool's jokes; very active in the Episcopal Church.
Daddy's nickname was "Click" because his ankles "popped" when he walked. (Mama could hear him coming up the walk to the house.) At some point, when they moved to an new oil field area, people misunderstood and thought he said "Slick" instead of "Click". So, he was then called "Slick". Most all his nephews and nieces called him "Uncle Slick". During their days in the oil fields, whenever Mama heard the five o'clock whistle, she put the biscuits in the oven. Everything else was prepared. By the time Daddy got home, the biscuits were done.
Mama used her double name: SARAH ETHEL. She really loved baseball and Baylor Bears football. She became a Dallas Cowboys fan, too. Sometimes, while watching baseball games, she was heard to encourage the batter or the runner: "Hit that ball"; "Slide!"

Stories By William Wylie Little Sr.
Noah Cash, Noah went into business with Harold Wren. Some sort of lumber business they had bought an old mill size saw and set up shop on Drew St. in Ft. Worth Texas. The business was doing pretty well and was making quite a bit of money. Harold decided to open a joint bank account with Noah. He told Noah what he had done. Noah the following day went to the bank and closed the account. He had lost all of his money that was in the bank when the banks folded during the great depression. He did not trust the banks any longer and would have nothing to do with them in any fashion.
NOTE: Noah Cash. Noah was a person that would not pay taxes. Tarrant Co. put his property up for sale. Early Elijah Little bought the property to keep his sister from loosing her home. Noah refused to pay the note at the bank that Lige had set up to settle the taxes. Lige went to there home and got into an argument about this with Noah. Noah picked up something to hit Lige with. Lige tackled Noah and told him that if that was the way he felt that he and his family could leave. Lige did not want to dislocate his sister the story goes but had no choice. Lige and his family eventually moved into the house it was on Drew St. in Ft. Worth Texas.

Story By William Wylie Little Sr.
Waide was a sharpshooter I have seen him light a match with a 22 rifle. While he was in WW II, a dogfight took place overhead and one of the bullets from the planes shattered the stock of his rifle. An officer told him he needed to turn it in and get another one. He said Sir, I know this old rifle I have carried it all this time, and if that is not an order I would like to carry it on through. The officer said if that's the way you feel ok.
One morning he was sitting on his foxhole shaving and a bullet came skipping past him on the ground. He laid down and lined up the skip marks that were left behind and about 500 yards out he saw a tree that looked like it had a knot on the side of it. He got down with this rifle and set the sights, he fired. Later he was out on patrol and they past close to that tree. He asked the officer if he could go look, and was given permission. Here was his German. He said I thought I saw that knot slide down the tree a little.
Had 12 gas stations and 11 trucks on the rode while living in McAllen Texas. A millionaire put him into business and had to foreclose because Wade spent all his time and money in Mexico drinking.

Stories By William Wylie Little Sr.
Lige grew up in the Buckholts and Rosebud area of Milam Co., Texas area. He is said to have spoken often about the area and did visit on occasions.
Lige considered himself to be a ladies man and always dressed very neatly.
He always wore a derby hat wherever he went.
It is known that Lige had family in Arkansas and did visit on occasion.
Lige met Lela his wife while picking cotton in Coryell County Texas.
Lige made a trip of some 40 miles on horseback once to here a radio. On another venture he was caught in the wide-open prairie in a bad storm. The storm got so bad it blew his horse right out from under him. It had also begun to hail on him and his only recourse was to hold his little derby hat above his head to protect from the hale. He then shoved his hand down a prairie dog hole to secure himself to the earth. He later said that was the only time in his life he had ever had to trust a rattlesnake. With the information given to me I figure he had probably been caught up in a tornado and may not have ever realized it.
He was said to have been very quick and light on his feet despite his rather heavy build. He was a champion side-holts wrestler and traveled at times to challenge others in this odd sport. A man came into town once on a Sunday to find Lige for this purpose. Lige was dressed in his Sunday best after attending church when the man approached him wanting to wrestle. Lige declined because of his attire but the man persisted saying that he had traveled a great distance just to wrestle Lige. Finally Lige said that if he would have it no other way, ok. So the two men went into an alley where they took their respective positions. Because of the man's rudeness Lige flipped the man upside down turned him loose in mid air causing the man to fall on his head. Lige gathered up his belongings and walked away, he never looked back.

It seems that Lige and his brother Richard were both quit good fighters. Richard lived in Godley Texas. He sent his 13 or 14 year old son Wadie to town to buy a bail of cotton. The town had a bully by the name of Burley Abbott. The whole town feared and hated Burley. On his way back home Burley accused Waide of stealing it from him. When Waide got home he told his dad about the incident. Richard calmly got up from the table and put on his coat and told Waide, let's go back to town. Richard found Burley and told him that he did indeed send Waide after the bail of hay and that Waide had bought it. He said I need you to apologize to the boy. Burley replied I don't apologize to no body. Richard said your going to apologize to the boy. Burley swung at Richard but missed. Richard hit him and sent him to the ground. He came at Richard several times but Richard managed to handle him quite nicely, sending him crashing to the floor many times. Burley finally desperate, decided that he had a job on his hands. So he took of his coat and put it on the fender of a car and jumped on Richard biting him on the face and held on for dear life. Richard told him, now Burley turn me loose several times, but Burly refused. So Richard hit down on the man's lower jaw knocking him loose. A crowd had gathered and the constable showed up, the towns people begged him to let the fight continue, he said no I'm the law and as bad as he hate to I have to break it up. He as did everyone else in this town, wanted to see Richard just beat the tar out of Burley.
Sometime later Burley made a trip to Ft. Worth where he passed a couple of local hooligans trying to get some pecans out of Lige's locked car, thru a partially open window. Noticing that Burley had longer arms they asked him to help them out. For some reason Burly asked who the car belonged to. They said Lige Little he won't mind. Hell no Burly replied those boys know how to fight.
Lige was also an honorary deputy sheriff. Where he used his authority several times. On one instance he noticed a man that had come into town and had sold a small herd of cattle. Lige found him drunk and gambling and apparently losing very badly. Despite his protest, Lige made him quit. Lige then took him to a local motel where he put him up for the night. He told the man under no circumstance was he to leave there until he was sober. He also left similar instructions with the clerk. The man reluctantly agreed. On another trip to town the same man made it a point to find Lige and thank him for what he had done. After sobering up he realized that he was being cheated at cards and would have surely lost all his money if it were not for Lige's intervention.
One other time he found a close friend in a drunken state and raising quite a ruckus. Lige ask the man to go home to his wife and children. The man refused and probably had a few unkind words to say. Lige figured he would simply knock the man out and carry him home himself. So Lige drew back taking aim on the man's chin. He swung the man threw his head back to dodge the blow, exposing his throat. Lige was unable to stop the swing in time; he crushed the man's throat, killing him.
Lige did not finish his education, as did many boys in the late 1800's. Wylie his oldest son did though and went on to take some extended courses in arithmetic. Thinking as sons do Wylie thought to outwitting Lige, by giving him a trigonometry question, which was about houses being sold. Lige did some figuring and gave the answer. He was almost exactly on. Wylie told his dad he was wrong and gave the correct answer. He was so close to right that Lige said good gosh almighty what does a few pennies matter in a transaction like that.
Lige's ability to figure math was a great asset to him while working as a cattle buyer on the Ft. Worth Stock Yards. Couple this with his uncanny ability to calculate a cows weight quickly and easily, it made him a real problem for the other buyers.

END OF DEATH NOTE
The death certificate shows. Gunshot wound to the forehead self inflicted.
Story By William Wylie Little Sr.
Wadie Little (nicknamed Hog Jaw because of his facial characteristics high cheek bones and small chin) the grand son of Richard Newman Little and son of Richard Little. Wadie was having trouble finding a job and keeping it. It seems that he was a bit immature or more simply put worthless. But Lige had to love him for he was his brothers son, and Richard had ask Lige if he could help Wade out by finding him a job on the Ft. Worth Stockyards. Where Lige had many contacts.
Lige introduced Wade to the Clarence Keen Livestock Commission Co. and spoke in his behalf in order to secure Wade a job as a buyer of cattle for them.
Wade had bought a small lot of cattle out of town and sold them on the Ft. Worth Stock Yards. Wade learned that his wife had run of with another man. He pocketed the money and left town and headed to California chasing after his wife. Where he was arrested for the crime and was convicted and did serve time.
Lige's suicide came about because Lige had some trouble with hallucinations. Lige thought this was a conspiracy to ruin his name. He thought that this was a most terrible offence, and probably thought he would be convicted of some crime. He also thought that his ex-wife was out to ruin him too. I am sure he thought his name had been ruined, and thought this was his only way out. Wade later returned to Ft. Worth and became a Sunday school teacher.

When Ivy and I were growing up, Tarzan was very popular. We and all our friends, developed his yell to communicate that we were in the area. Whoever was near would reply backed with the same yell.
Every week it was our job to cut firewood. We always carried fishing poles with us in that old Model A Ford. We would I'd the truck where it could not be seen from the road. We would fish until we heard that yell. Then when would get the ax and would be busy as hunting dogs when the boys got their. Every week it was our job to cut a load of firewood, for us and the man that own the property. The Clintons had a bunch of horses that we all rode. When they found us that would want to play, or go riding. We would say no, we have to cut firewood. Well all rest of the boys would pitch in and help, that way we would be done in no time. We used them that way every week.

During probation dad always kept prescription whiskey, bought out of the back door of the pharmacy. He kept it in a big old barn that we had. It had a hayloft in it, bins where we kept corn, and a manger where we milked the cows. I found the whiskey, and I liked it when I was a kid. So I'd milk the cow a little bit then I'd slip into the attic and down over the other side and get a little sip. I made this trip back and forth through the attic several times. Well, I got more than I thought I was getting. I got done with the milking and went to the house. We were all gathered around the table to eat, and this stuff hit me. We didn't have a cat in the house; we had plenty around that barn though. I got a piece of meat or something and leaned over and said drunkenly here kitty kitty kitty. Dad said you get up and get out of here. He put me out on the porch in the cold, I mean it was cold, the wind was a blowing and it was about 25 degrees out there. You talk about sobering up quick, that will do it.

There were the family of Clinton's that live that there, and they ran a dairy, and also raised horses. They had several mares and a stud horse. Out were all Buck's place was, and the older brother made bootleg whiskey. They burned several barns down. We knew they made whisky because we found the old stills in the burned barns. We got the younger brother Billy to swipe us a half-gallon of that whiskey. There was an old tree down there that had fallen over and left a hole, the hole had filled up with leaves. We hid the whiskey in that hole. Well we all got down there, me old Roy Hathcock, Neal Kingston, Roy Bentley, Iva, Benny, and Pet Todd. There must have been a dozen of we boys down there, we got into a race drinking that whiskey. Roy Bentley was one of those bullheaded boys that didn't want to be outdone by anybody. So he turned it up and got about a third of that stuff before he ever stopped. Out of that half-gallon fruit jar. I drank some, I didn't know I was drinking as much as I was, anyway old Roy it knocked him plum out. He got on his horse; he rode down there in the creek and started up the bank on the other side. He slid of her rump and sit down right in the middle of that darn creek. We caught the mare for him, we put him back on her and he took off down a bodark hedgerow then run east and west and then turned due north, 90 degrees. Well he took of east down that hedgerow wide open just as fast as old Nell could go. He turned her at that corner she made it he didn't. He went flying out through the air and went bump and hit the ground flopped up in a roll then flopped out and lay there. We ran out there, thought he had broke his neck. We turned him over and asked Roy are you hurt? He replied hell no catch my damn horse. Now this is when he went across the creek and fell in. That's the last I remember, we were about a quarter of a mile from the house. When I came to I was up at the house under a wagon and I was talking to the old boy that made that whiskey, I don't know what I was saying, he wasn't even there. I decided right then there was nobody going to tell me where I was the night before, I'm gona know from now on. From then on I would drink enough to feel it then I would quit, I've never been drunk again.

May and Addie got lost when we lived at Wilmer. We were about two or three years old, and they had the whole darn town out looking for us. We lived right at the age of town, and had a big cotton patch right beside the house. Well everybody hunted and haunted, but nobody could find us. Eventually they went down to the cow pen. There we were, up under the old cow. Both of us had a big tit in our mouths. We were just getting breakfast.

Dad was a butcher down there in Wilmer Texas where I was born. He made good money doing that, but he also made money buying cattle and shipping them to Fort Worth and selling them at the Stockyards. He would buy them in Wilmer or wherever, and put them on the train call the L C L. People would mark their stock by painting some sort of mark to identify them when they got there. I think they tried to paint the whole of cow. It was a gosh of thing to look at by the time they got to Fort Worth, it didn't hurt the meet any it just made them look terrible. He did that for a while, taking cattle on the L C L and selling them at the Stockyards, and he made good money at it. One day a banker called him into his office and told him Mr. Little we have been watching you for a while. We've got money here and if you run into any thing you can't handle, come to us and we will take care of it. Well he turned Dad lose and he became wealthy. But that cotton patch did it. He decided he would buy it. He was offered a profit on it a week or two later, he should have taken it because the boll weevils hit it and ruined it all. That broke him, so he decided to go to Fort Worth and look over the Stockyards. He went to work for the Southwest Commission Co., and worked for them for 21 years. This stipulation in his employment was that he would not be restricted in his trading. Because he loved trading and he was good at it. So they tolerated that, they did not care how much money he made on the side as long as it did not interfere with their business. He was punctual about taking care of their business before he took care of his personal business. Then he went to work for Breedlove Livestock Commission Co.
Someone had told me that he was a horse trader; he wasn't as much a horse trader as he was a cattle trader. He could guess within 5 lbs. of the cows' weight, betting $5 that he could do it and he would make more money than you would. That is how we came to live and Ft. Worth.

I have saying whole trains come in to the Stockyards that would belong to digest 1 man. By the time they got to the Stockyards that would were wild; they were range cows and had never seen a human being before. They would fight a circle saw by the time they got there and you would have to work them through the gates from atop the fence. Or throw the gates into them in order to sort them out. Most cattle you could work from down in the pens but not them. They would send along a cowboy on the train with a long pole. He would ride in the caboose and when the train would stop for whatever reason, he would get off and use the pole to poke the cattle that were not standing. If they didn't get up the other cows would step on them. By the time they arrived at the Stockyards the cattle that were down would be all skinned up and the meat would be bruised. The packers couldn't buy them because the meat was bruised. They were called skinners. Many times we would buy those skinners and take them out to pasture. We would let there hide and hare heal up, then we would take them back to the Stockyards and make a whale of a profit on them.

Then we lived up there on Bidison St. in Ft. Worth. That was all open country back then. We live near Katie Lake was what it was called then, seminary South shopping center is there now. We didn't live far from A.G. Lake on the railroad. We had a pasture down there that had a creek that came out of Katie Lake. It had a junk pile where people dumped things. We went out there one day, somebody had been there the night before Wolf hunting. They had 38 coyote hides hanging up on the fence out there in front, that they had killed out of that pasture.
Dad was afraid of a dog with hydrophobia Grandpa was too! Oh he really hated them. There was an old man that worked gathering up junk out of that junk pile. He would sell what he could and throw away the rest. He had an old pit bull dog that was always with him. One day that dog came up to the house slobbering at the mouth, and he laid down under our screen door. Dad picked up an old horseshoe rasp; it must have weighed with three or four pounds. He eased the door right over that old dog, without him knowing it. He rared back and hit that old dog right between the ears. The dog jumped up and ran off, never to be seen again. When his dog came up to the house that day our collie dog left the country and he didn't come back for three or four days.

Hiney Trapman was an old German boy that lived down below us on the Whitesettlement Rd. in Ft Worth. Hiney was tong tied. He had an old worn out hinting dog a sitter. This dog showed up at our house and fell in love with me and that brother of mine, because we was kids, and we fed and played with him. We had a lot of fun hunting squirrels by day and possum and coons at night, mostly possum. But the old dog would just hunt like the dickens for us. Hiney drove by one day and saw his old dog lying out in the yard. Dad was out there too. Hiney said Mr. Little that's my dang dog. Dad said well Hiney that old dog has been up here for a long while and he has become attached to those boys. I'll tell you what we'll do. You take the dog home. If you can keep him at home then he's yours. But if you cant keep him at home and he comes back up here then he belongs to the boys. Hiney says that's a good idea. So he took him home, the next morning the old hound was back with us. So we had our dog back. The old dog eventually died. He got a bit ripe so we dragged him of down to the cornfield. Well the turkey buzzards spotted him, and began to lighting on him. Iva couldn't stand this so he took the shotgun and stood guard over the old dog that he loved so much. So the buzzards wouldn't get him.

Dad had a phobia about machinery. He took a job one time with Uncle Acie at a cotton gin. Now Uncle Acie was a big man stood about 7 ft. tall and was large. Uncle Acie was one of those people will love to oil and grease things. He always oiled things more than was necessary. When he saw you coming he would wipe his hands on his old bib overalls to shake your hand. Anyway one day Acie was oiling something on the other sad of one of those big belts that drove the gin. When they clasp on the belt came by it caught his overalls. Uncle Acie realize what was happening, and he threw his leg over the belt, he pulled the belt up to his chest and stopped the belt from moving. He hollered at Dad to turn off the gin. Dad ran up to the switch and turn it off, and just kept on walking. He quit his job because he was that afraid of machinery.
Now when I was a kid I wanted a bicycle. Now Dad being afraid of machinery the way he was, he was afraid for me or the other boys to have one. I picked up a wheel hear and a frame there, a tube here and a tire there, eventually I put me together a bicycle. One-day dad told me to do something, but I was more interested in that bicycle than what he told me to do. So he killed two birds with one stone, by going out there and cutting the tires of my bicycle and he whipped me with one of the tires. I rode that old broken-down bicycle up Seminary Hill and back down again, I dropped it in a ditch and walked off and left it. I never did have another bicycle.

Back in those days cars were scarce very few people had them. One day and man drove up in a Model T Ford and parked near where Dad was. Dad walked up to him and said, Sir how much does it take to keep one of those up. The man looked at him and said, son let me tell you have you ever tried to keep up a whore.

We had a nice little garden area where we grew a little of everything. It was sandy land but good land and great for watermelons. Dad always knew when we had taken a watermelon. All he had to do is follow our tracks and they would lead to the stump end where we took it. He never punished us for taking a melon; he would just call our attention to the fact that he knew we had taken it. For years I wondered how in the world he knew. Then I decided I would pull a trick on him and see if I could outsmart him. He was smart and it was hard to fool him, but I outsmarted him this time. Dad had an old pair of brogan shoes that he never wore. So I took them and hid them in the fencerow. Whenever we wanted a melon I would put those shoes on and go get one. From then on I made it all right, I never heard anymore about watermelons. It wasn't for the watermelons it was all about outsmarting Dad.

My Daddy was a grand man, as was my mother a fine woman. Spent many a day on the creeks with her. We'd catch a number three washtub half full of perch. She would cook them nice and brown and you could eat them bones and all. Of course we cleaned them. But you could eat the whole body of the fish. Crawfish, we'd catch that tub about one third full and we would go home and clean crawfish tales. You talk about a feast we would have a feast.

I told you dad was smart and he was industrious too. He worked at the stockyards. And he bought and sold cattle on the side. We farmed and ranched a little, always had a milk cow, and raised chickens. So many chickens, I don't care if I ever I see another one in my life. We got through those days eating chickens. We sold eggs in town and to the neighbors too. He kept the family up in good shape the whole time. That was hard to do during the depression. Most of our friends were not so lucky.
Momma loved to bake; cakes, pies bread. When she worked in dough she would go to the back door and scrub her hands together to remove the dough of her hands. Right there is where we got our fishing worms. Many times one of our friends would come over and say Mrs. Little can I have a piece of cake, they all knew Momma would have a pie or a cake in the house. Sure she would reply.

Story By Wylie & Homer Little
Homer said One day a man showed up afoot at the gas station , and said he was Wylie Little. I thought "one of them boys up around Ft. Worth" was named Wylie, but didn't remember him. Wylie asked if I would put him up for the night. "Those were dangerous times. People would show up, claiming to be family, or anything to get you to take them in, or just turn your back on them so they could steal something. Sometimes they just wanted something to eat, but you didn't know. Homer decided to put Wylie up at the gas station, so his family would be safe. There was a pallet in the back of the adjoining store.
This aggravated Wylie, it apparently made him feel as if he were not good enough. So the next morning he told Homer he had eaten all his Ice Cream and walked away. They have not spoken since. According to Wylie, Homer ran the gas station in Teague Texas barefooted.

NOTES "Suzann's Email to me" "At the time of my divorce, my maiden name of Little was restored by the Court. I went to Court the following week and had my daughter's last name changed to Little. (My thinking was, and continues, to be: if the father wasn't going to support her, why honor him by using his last name?) My daughter is named Lesa (short for Elizabeth, after a childhood friend of mine) Clay (for my Daddy, of course) Godfrey (after her paternal grandmother) Little. Thus, her name is Lesa Clay Godfrey Little. She is called Clay. In the theatre and other professional lighting work, she lists her name as: L. Clay Little. Clay's birth date: July 18, 1964.

Notes; Earl was a fireman with the Houston Fire Department and built homes on the side. Many of the homes he built in the area are still in use. It is thought that his cancer was the result of asbestos exposure during his many years of firefighting. He was a much beloved man in the neighborhood and most people called him Cuz. He was an avid fisherman.
Earl married Lillie Hargrave on 6/17/1928. She was born 3/9/1911 in Louetta, Harris County, Texas. Her family was one of the founding families of the area known as Cy-Fair. Lillie died on 8/13/1999 at Heartland Health Care in Houston, Texas. She and Earl were both buried at Perry Cemetery (the one in which Don and I are involved.) Earl and Lillie met at the water will at the Fuchs School not far from her family home. Lillie was a devout Lutheran and spent her years caring for her family and home. She was an excellent cook.
After Earl's retirement, they sold up their home and moved to Arkansas to be near one of her sisters. When Earl became ill, they traveled to Austin to stay with their younger daughter, Donna. After Earl's death, Lillie went back to Arkansas and lived on her own for five years. In 1985, she had a heart attack and walked over a mile to get help. At that point, she sold the farm and moved back to Texas, living with her oldest daughter Earlene, until about a year before her death. Her health had deteriorated to the point where she needed almost 24 hour care. The irony is that she died only a mile from where she was born.

Earlene worked for many years as a secretary and Joe was a butcher. They are both retired and enjoy visiting with their grandchildren, church and each other.

Story By Royce Fikes
My mother died when he was about 2-1/2 to 3 years old, and
my sister Ora Adeline Fikes, about a year old at the time, were split up. Several families of relatives in central and west Texas, both Littles and Fikeses, helped father raise me. Ora was taken to New York state by Delie's sister, Linnie Adeline Little (later called "Helen") and raised there. I hopped many trains to go to New York to see my sister when I was a teenager. I have one picture of mother that his dad had. It shows her sitting in a field with a friend of hers.

Stories
Iva never married and had no children
Iva was a peculiar fellow. Never married, no known children. Always lived alone or with one of his parents. He was the person that found his dad after he had committed suicide.
He served in WWII and never to the best of my knowledge talked about it, as did many veterans. It must have been horrible for him. I attribute these factors in his life to his antisocial behavior.
He was a person that if he thought he was right you really had a hard time convincing him otherwise.
Iva was a generous man at heart. He did not have much but if he had something that you needed or he thought you should have he would give it to you. But if he ever felt that you had done him wrong he wouldn't have any thing more to do with you.
He seemed to love to argue with his brothers. Always trying to show his wit, but Wylie his brother says he just showed his ass. But he and all his brothers liked to play Country Music, Not modern day country REAL COUNTRY.
By Jesse Little his nephew
Iva loved to dicker and trade. If he could get the best of you in a trade, he was very happy with himself. His word was good as gold. He wouldn't cheat anyone.
Iva's father described him as an odd boy, but a good boy.

Story by Mary Little Johnson
When I was little, no one called me Mary, they just said "MaryVerne" like it was all one word. At least, as a little kid, one word is all I heard. I finally asked my mom why my sister had two names and I only had one. She said I had two, and I argued with her! When she finally understood what I was talking about, she sat down with me and figured out how we would spell it as just one word. She came up with Marivern. This was all just to show me a little attention, I think. But from then on, she only called me Mary, trying to reinforce that I, indeed, had two names. Ever since that I always spelled it Mari.

Story by Jesse Little
While in the Army I was stationed at Camp Casey Korea in the 122nd Signal Battalion. I was lucky enough to have my wife with me. Something I noticed was that none of the police had weapons of any kind. Janine and I woke up one morning to find that there were heavily armed men all over the village that we were living in. Now we didn't know just what to think. So we put on our clothes and headed for the Base. Now they took my pass at the gate and turned Janine back as she was a dependant and was not allowed on the Base because we were on high alert. I asked if there was an alarm, fearing I had not heard it and was in trouble. The MP said no it was a silent alert and that President Carter came in that evening and it was a closely guarded secret. I later found out that he was driven from Soule to the edge of Tong Du Chon the village we lived in. The stories say his car never touched the ground; the entire rode was covered with flower petals. Some secret I thought to myself. I turned to leave and I could see the fear in Janine's face. It hurt me real bad to leave her that way but I couldn't help her. The MP's were shuffling us all into the base as quick as they could. About fifty of us were hand picked that evening to run with the President the next morning. They told us he was old and slow. Having nowhere else to go that night we went to the Enlisted Club on Base and just got snockered. No one knew what lay ahead of us that next morning. We got up all hung over and had formation and those of us who were named went to the area where we always did our morning exercises before our normal three-mile run. Now we often went on much longer twelve-mile jaunts. So we were in pretty good shape. We were doing sit-ups when he burst out of the building he was staying in. He waved for us to come on. Now he was not doing the Military Shuffle. He was running at a good pace. Now here we are in formation and we started out on our normal three-mile run following the President about 50 paces or so. We were all bunched up in formation and could not stretch out and run. All the time President Carter waved for us to come on. He wanted for us to come up and join him in a friendly run. But our Company Commander would have none of that we were going to stay in formation. Now my head is about to explode and I'm feeling very sick. So I worked my way to the side of the formation and dove into a bush. Right on top of one of his security people. Well I came out on bottom with a 45 shoved into my face. I guess I was a little green or something because he quickly turned me loose and told me to stay put. This was not a problem. Now the bunch that I had left had about 10 minutes of running to do before they turned and would come back by. So this fellow and I began talking and I learned that they too had given up on trying to keep up with him and now just drove next to him with people placed in a few spots like he was this day. The security guy let me rejoin the pack when they came back by. By mow most of them were gone. The president was still waving for us to join him. He ran us to death on our own track.

It isn't over yet.
In the next formation some us were picked to join the President for breakfast. Now our Mess Hall was incredibly small and the tables were tightly packed. Notice I used the word (WAS). You had to ask the person behind you to suck it in so you could sit down. They told us that because of this when he came in we were to come to attention in our seats and not to get up. Fine with me so I go and get started with my breakfast and in he comes. Someone called for attention. They did all right everyone began leaping from their seats. Man what a mess plates and chares were falling to the floor. Here I am hung over, sick, mad, bright lights and cameras in my face and to say the least embarrassed. So where do you think he picks to sit my table. Well I did a bang up job of ignoring him and he did try to speak to me and now I wish I had not done him that way. Before he got up to leave he gave the girl between us a little peck on the cheek. She passed smooth out and slid under the table. Now he was embarrassed. What do you think happened when he got up to leave? Yes it is a wonder that he didn't leave with egg all over him.
Later that day we had another formation where President Carter spoke to us. He made the statement that the next time he came to Korea he would run in combat boots and allow us to wear sneakers. This is the reason all the military runs in sneakers now, except for the Special Forces, Navy Seals, and Green Berets and such. Now remember that little tiny Mess Hall. We got a huge new one and the food got much better shortly after he left.
