Samuel Squier Littell & Benjamin F. Littell
of Cincinnati – Looking for Relativity
As noted in the introduction of Chapter 12 of Littell Families History & Genealogy, there is more detective work to be done establishing the Benjamin F. Littell line.
An early history of Decatur Co., IN indicates that Benjamin F. Littell was born in VT and that he moved to Cincinnati, OH. The city directory lists his occupation as brick maker, living on Fifth Street. (His birth is estimated ca. 1780 and death ca. 1824 “during a cholera epidemic.”) He married Elizabeth Perkin Merrill and had Benjamin Franklin Littell (b. 1820 Cincinnati), Elizabeth, Sarah Ann and Clara.
Researcher Judy poses the question: could Benjamin F. of VT be a brother to Samuel Squier Littell (1786-1825), a contractor also living in Cinci? Records mention that Samuel’s father also lived there, but no name for him has been established. Could it be that Samuel and Benjamin are first cousins?
Judy has compiled this lineage for Samuel Squier Littell. (She also wonders if perhaps Samuel’s father could be William Meeker Littell due to the naming pattern of his children.)
Keep researching and keep us informed of any corrections or newfound documentation….
