I picked this record up during my visits to libraries in the South
Western VA area. It is very likely on file at the public library in
Lebanon, Russell Co., where there is a thick LITTON family folder. I
have a photocopy of the first section, MY FAMILY, and a typewritten
transcript of the whole record.
This is the line of Canie B. LITTON Jr., of Jacksonville, FL, and he
probably has the original manuscript in his collection.
John R. LITTON is John Richard LITTON, son of Caleb LITTON born 1678,
either in Ottery St. Mary (Devon) Eng., or in Maryland, depending on the
researcher's inclination. Caleb's wife was Grace FORRESTER or BURTON b
1698 Baltimore, MD d 1792 Rockville, MD.
Sarah or Sallie WILCOXEN was the daughter of Thomas WILCOXEN, Sr. b 9
Mar 1695 d ca 1777 (Prince Georges Co.) MD who m. Ruth _____b 3 Sep
1703. Thomas was s/o John WILCOXEN d 22 Sep 1716 (Prince Georges) MD
and Magdalen ______.
Capt. Solomon C. LITTON, s/o John R. and Sarah WILCOXEN LITTON, was
Solomon Caleb LITTON, Sr. d 22 Oct. 1842/2 May 1843 (Russell) VA. There
were many Solomon LITTON'S of Russell and other counties, and it is
necessary to keep track of them by date!
Martha SHARPE DUNCAN, sometimes listed as Martha DUNCAN SHARP d 31 Mar
1821 was probably widowed when she married Solomon LITTON. She was d/o
Thomas DUNKIN b 3 Jan 1692, Argyle Scotland d 1756/60 (Lancaster)
PA/Perm, VA. who m 1733 Elizabeth ALEXANDER b 1709/10 Scotland d 1814
Elk Garden/Spring Creek (Russell) VA. (LDS Ancestry File has Thomas
DUNKIN's family back to 1501.)
John W. LITTON Sr., s/o Capt. Solomon and Martha LITTON, was John
Whitely LITTON d 1853 who built "Litton Hill", a large brick house near
Elk Garden. He donated the land for the Elk Garden Methodist Church,
and there is a LITTON cemetery behind the modern house at Box 445 Rt. 1,
within sight of the current church building.
James Fullen LITTON was s/o John W. LITTON and Sarah Pearl FULLEN.
The above family members who lived until 1850 are fairly easy to sort
out by comparing this record to the censuses.
