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.

      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.
