Re: LITTLEJOHNS OF PARIS, TEXAS (LAMAR COUNTY)

I am not related, but I wanted to pass along this information on the Littlejohn family of Lamar County, Texas, that appeared in several issues of the (New Orleans, LA) Southwestern Christian Advocate, if the moderator will be kind enough to indulge me (it does not specifically discuss any Native American ancestry, so it might be off-topic, but I do hope these might be helpful to someone.)

Southwestern Christian Advocate, April 21, 1881:
MR. EDITOR - I wish to inquire for my four uncles. I never have seen them. They are named Jerry, James, Pride and Irvin. They belonged to Richard Brown. Mother was Martha Brown; father was Peter Gardlock, in Sharonburg, S.C., about thirty years ago. Three of their sisters are living yet. One is now Gracey Littlejohn, married, living in Lamar Co., Texas; two are living in South Carolina – Malinda Allen and Louisa McCloud. Address, J.F. Littlejohn. Paris, Texas

Southwestern Christian Advocate, June 30, 1881:
DEAR EDITOR – I desire to inquire for my father, Daniel Lipskin. My mother was named Lucinda, and belonged to John Bertis. Her oldest daughter was named Patsy. The next were Matilda, Violet, and Leathey, one of the twins, My first name was Doctor Bertis, and I was sold to old Bill Littlejohn. The others were Anderson, Berry, Patience, Adaline, Mary, and Felix Bertis, and a brother named Olmstead Wood, and a half sister named Narcisse Lipskin, who used to belong to old Betsy Lipskin. Any information of them will be thankfully received. Address me at Paris, Lamar county, Texas. DOCTOR LITTLEJOHN

Southwestern Christian Advocate, July 7, 1881:
DEAR EDITOR – Some of my relatives were sold from mother and I about eight years before the war about fourteen miles east of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Had only two sisters, the oldest was Mag Littlejohn, the other Amanda, mother Milly Littlejohn. They were sold by Billy Littlejohn from the block to speculators, and carried to Spartanburg Court House by Elias Mitchell. They had only one brother named Moses, his father was C.R. Novis. I want to find my sisters. Address me MOSES LITTLEJOHN. Paris, Texas.

Southwestern Christian Advocate, August 4, 1881:
MR. EDITOR – I wish to inquire for some of my connections whom I have not heard from since the war. Jerry, Pride, Irvin, and James Brown belonged to Richard Brown. There were three sisters living – Gracy Littlejohn, Louisa McClare, and Malinda Allen. They were in Union District, South Carolina. My mother lives in Texas thirteen miles from Paris. J.F. LITTLEJOHN. Chicota, Lamar Co., Texas.

Southwestern Christian Advocate, April 17, 1890:
Mr. Editor: Please enquire for my two sisters namely Marietta and Mandy. They were sold from me when small, they were in South Carolina, fourteen miles below Spartanburgh, in 1852 or about fourteen years before the war. My mothers name is Milly Littlejohn, I have seven sisters, Lizzie, Delia, Lindy, Catherine, Zosa, and the two above named. They had only one brother, that was myself. My master’s name was Billy Littlejohn, young master was Richard Pason. I heard my people were somewhere in Philadelphia. Address Moses Littlejohn, Panderly, Texas.
