Hello Lora,

You know, I have those dates SOMEWHERE, but I can't put my hands on them just now. I'll post again to this site when I find them.

Meawhile, I did find an annotated photo that my Great Aunt Alice sent me of the "Littell Reunion at Littell Farm outside Darlington, PA." Here are some of her notes:

The Littells are too numerous to know in this picture. So only the few I know are designated. For years the Littell reunion was held at this farm. It is now being celebrated at the original site of the first Littell who was granted land in western Pennsylvania for services in the Revolutionary War.

5. John Littell, Brig. Gen., Civil War. Oldest of the 12 Littell children/brother to your grat great grandmother, Maria Littell.

6. Ine Littell, daughter of John. Never married. Greatly interested in family history, collected a wealth of material. It was she who found that the name of Betty Walker's mother was Nancy Vanlandingham. Nancy had been engaged to William Littell, but owing to the uncertainties of war it was agreed between them, if they had not heard from each other for a certain length of time they each were free to make another alliance. Billy was taken prisoner. When freed, he rushed to Nancy, only to find she had been married four days to William (?) Walker. Billie waited and married their daughter, Betty.

7. Joe Littell, brother of Ine. Never married. He and Ine lived and farmed the old home farm. It was burned to the ground destroying all the records that Aunt Ine had so carefully collected over the decades.

If you'd like a xerox of this photo and the notations, send me your address and I will mail it to you.

My name and address are:

David Summers
435 N. Lincoln St.
Arlington, VA 22201
