Elijah Little settled near the Clearwater community in the mid 1830's. He is buried in the Old Clearwater Cemetery. All of my life I have heard that Elijah Little had a large number of slaves; however, I have not been able to find any slave schedules for him 1840-1860. In addition, there are two names on his tombstone, his and Lucinda. His two wives were named Francis (b. 1817 in SC) and Sarah (b. 1830 in AR.) He had a daughter named Lucinda (b. abt 1834 in AR) and some genealogists list a Lucinda as his wife. I believe it to be his daughter, Lucinda. There are two misteries in this post. I would like to hear from anyone that can shed light on either of them. Bruce Simpson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
