"The first Litterals known to have been in Johnson County were George, Austin, Daniel and John. George Litteral lived at the mouth of Bobb's Branch and had a large family,. Austin Litteral was the father of Marion, Harry B., who was a captain in the Union Army, and W.E. Litteral, one of Johnson County's most prominent public officials. Judge Litteral lived at Oil Springs, and has many descendants living in that locality.
Daniel Litteral was shot and killed in his own yard at his home on Paint Creek during the Civil War. John Litteral ran away with a woman and went to some unknown place in the west.
George Litteral, mentioned above, married first to a Mankins who was originally a Preston and daughter of Isaac Preston, and she had two children by her first husband. She and George Litteral lived and died at the mouth of Bobb's Branch on a farm then known as the Jim Johnson place. They had children; Elizabeth, who married Shade Walters and second to a Pelphrey; Martha, who married S. J. Johnson; Mahala Jane, married James Johnson; Isaac Henry, who went to Missouri; and Julia, who married Marion Murray.
George Washington Litteral first married a Huff, daughter of German Huff. They had one daughter. He married second to a Price and reared a large family. Mr. Litteral left Kentucky and went to Missouri and from there to Washington Territory.
W. E. Litteral, mentioned above, was one of Johnson County's most popular officials. He served as the County Attorney from 1902 to 1910, after having served as county Judge from 1894 to 1902. The fact that he continuously held important official positions for sixteen years is evidence of his popularity.
The daughter of George W. Litteral mentioned above was named Matilda J., born October 10, 1839 and died December 2, 1859"

"John Connelly, a son of Henry and Ann Connelly, was born August 8th, A. D. 1785.
[He married in North Carolina a sister of my great grandmother, Susan Joynes Connelly. He settled on Little Paint Creek, near where the road from Paintsville to Salyersville strikes it, and in this vicinity, also, lived his father, Captain Henry Connelly. Hairston Litteral, Esq. (almost invariably spoken of as "Austin" Litteral) lived near this point for sixty years. The descendants of John Connelly live mostly about the Flat Gap, Johnson County, Kentucky, his children having intermarried with those of a settler named Jayne at that point.]"
