There was another son named Elijah Mack Daniel Littlefield, born October 15, 1848, also in South Carolina. About 1850, the elder John Littlefield went west expecting to take his family to the western country. He died of cholera in Mexico. His wife, thus left a widow with two small children, in 1860, removed to Florida and married Samuel Etheridge in Calhoun County. As young men, sometime after the War Between the States, John and his brother Elijah both came to Decatur County, Georgia.
