Born in West Boscawen, N.H. to Richard and Mary C. Little.

"Dr. Little was born in Boscawen, N.H.; graduated at Dartmouth College in 1860, and received his medical degree in the same institution in 1863; died November 16, 1869, thirty-two years old. During the same autumn he entered the navy as assistant surgeon, where he remained until the close of the war. Unwilling to enter upon a private practice without a more thorough preparation for his work, he passed the winter of 1865-66 at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and at the hospital in New York. He commenced his active professional life at Acton in the spring of 1866, and soon after married the only daughter of Dr. Harris Cowdrey, of Acton."
