Mrs. Nancy Littlefield, who was 96 years old on August 28, 1925, died Sunday, (January 24, 1926) at the home of her son, James L. Littlefield, in Adamsville, and was laid to rest in the Adamsville Cemetery Monday afternoon (January 25, 1926). Rev. Overton conducted the funeral service which was attended by one of the largest crowds ever present on a funeral occasion in Adamsville.
Mrs. Littlefield was the widow of Luke R. Littlefield, who died several years ago. They came to this county about 1850 from Maury County and settled in the Lick Creek neighborhood, a few miles northwest of Adamsville. In the same neighborhood there lived such sturdy Pioneers as Anderson Cox, Uncle Billy Mills, Alex Whitesides, the Farrisses, Stanleys, and Carnells and others.
She left surviving her the following children: daughters, Mrs. Agatha Harris-Leapwood, Mrs. Mary White-Morris Chapel, Mrs. Rebecca Shaw and America Blakeley of Adamsville; sons, James L. and W. P. Littlefield of Adamsville, John and Edgar Littlefield of Oklahoma, George of Greenwood, Miss. Two other children died a few years ago, Mrs. Paralee Newell, and a son, Babe Littlefield.
She left surviving her 274 descendants, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She is probably the oldest person in the County, and represented five living generations.
We join her friends and loved ones in paying tribute to the memory of her long life, which reached back to the early years of our Statehood, and ....[the rest was torn off]
