308. Alonzo Elmer "Lonnie" LITTLE176,220 was born on 8 October 1876 in Arkansas.174,175 He died in 1923 at the age of 47 in Sevier County, Arkansas.

In 1900, there is a son "Alford", born Feb 1877, that surely must have been an error on the part of the enumerator. Later Alonzo would give his birth as Oct 1876 - certainly there could not have been another child born the following February.
