It is with great sorrow that I announce the passing of my father, William A Littell Jr on April 15, 2022. My father took over the reigns of managing Little Families of America from his father William A Littell Sr back in the 1990s. It has been a labor of love for our family. First, with the publishing of magazines, then books, then family reunions held biannually by my grandfather, then management of this web site by my father. At this time, I am reaching out to the many Littell descendants who frequent this site to see if there is anyone who would be interested in taking over management. I would hate to see all of the years of hard work collecting and maintaining this data come to and end. Unfortunately, I am not able to maintain it myself. If interested, please contact me for details before Nov 1, 2022. Sincerely Elizabeth Littell-Davidson.
