In Response To: Re: LITTLEJOHNS OF PARIS, TEXAS (LAMAR COUNTY) ()
Thanks for responding so soon. Actually, I live in Washington State. I was born in Omaha, NE -- my Alston family moved north to Omaha around 1912 to work in the packing houses.
I have Lisa Elizabeth Littlejohn b. around 1879 born to Spencer and Nora -- both born in SC. In 1900, the census lists Lizzie as "head of household" Lizzie Littlejohn 19 with:
My ggrandfather William Henry and his 1st wife Laura Warren were both born in Oktibehha County, MS. I have not traced anyone connected to any other MS county. However, I'm quite stuck -- anything is possible.
Lizzie married William Henry in 1907 - I have a copy of the marriage certificate. I have traced some deed activity, and know that she was alive in 1936. I have been unable to find a death certificate or locate a place of burial. I would love to know more about the Littlejohn family if you have any information.
As a coincidence - I have Littlejohn relatives in Omaha (through marriage). Ernest Littlejohn b. 1890 MS married my maternal Great Aunt Amberlena Mitchell in Omaha. Uncle Ernest's parents were from South Carolina.
Hope to hear from you. My e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
