Name in records is most often Little, occasionally found as Littleberry or Lytle. Descendants of his grandson, Lytle Edward James, say that the pronuciation sounds like "Lyle" which may account for the spelling "Lille" on this monument.

Married 7/14/1825, Greene Co, AL, Bk A p31.

Little & Mary were early members of the Harmony Baptist Church (later renamed Zion Baptist Church). In 1841, Little served on a committee to determine a new proper location for the church which at the time was located about one mile south of it's present location. (In the vicinity of the present day Coody Cemetery). He further served in 1842-43 on the committee to draft plans for a new church building. On 12/13/1843, Little and Mary deeded 3.33 acres of land to the church, at the current location, for it's new building and a cemetery. This was part of a parcel they purchased from Allen & Jarrett Glover and wives, 7/16/1836.

In Feb. 1846, an early "Environmental Impact Statement" was issued in Sumter Co, AL Orphans Court. A commission gave it's findings that Little's request to dam Little Kinterbish Creek, which ran across his land, to power a mill would not adversely impact the community. I don't know if he completed the mill before his death or not. Part of the money owed by his estate included invoices for mill timbers and fittings from Lauderdale Co, MS.
