Erva (Childs) Littell
Hi Rachel,
Unfortunately I don't have a really good picture of Erva's memorial stone but I've posted what I do have (I'll try to get a better picture this summer). Concerning Erva (Childs) Littell's parentage, I believe the quick answer to your question lays with Medad Childs' probate. Medad was a son of Daniel Childs, Jr and his wife Sally Benjamin, and a brother of Erva (Childs) Littell. His probate (Schuyler Co, NY) names as next of kin, his living sibling and the children of his deceased siblings. Among the later are Lewis D. Little, Ansyl P Little and Moses E Little. There is also a bio on Ansyl that names Erva's father as Daniel Childs and indicates that Daniel located from MA. The descendants of Edwin Childs Littell (#97968799), son of Lewis David Littell and grandson of Erva (Childs) Littell, are both paternally and maternally descendants of Erva's grandfather, Daniel Child, Sr.

As a side note, if you were at cemetery facing David Squire Littell's memorial stone as it's pictured (#100249318), Erva's name is on the left side of the stone. In the same row and to the left of the Littell stone is Medad's memorial (#96353874). To your back would be the early Kendall family members; including Erva's aunt, Betsey (Childs) Kendall (#95792759).

I hope this information is helpful. Best, Kathy
