  • Notes 
    • Children John, Joseph and Alsey are listed on 1850 census. They were born years before Fielding married Lucy Wood. He must have had a first wife, but I can find no record of her.

      Chronicles of Oklahoma, p. 237
      "James M. Littrell is widely known as a successful farmer and stockman, whose large interests lie near Marlow, Stephens county. He is one of the pioneers of Oklahoma, for he came into what was then the Territory in 1885 and located near Ardmore, Carter county, and during the twelve years of his residence there, as well as the succeeding eleven years which he has spent at his present location, he has demonstrated his high capacity as an agriculturist and his honorable traits as a citizen. Born in Missouri, on 10th of January, 1865, James M. Littrell is a son of Joseph G. and Parrie (Simmons) Littrell, both of whom are dead, his mother passing away at Simon, Oklahoma in 1890. The parents afterward moved into Parker county Texas, where they continued their uneventful agricultural lives. It was from this section of Texas that James M. Littrell guided his little overland schooner into the Indian country, his wife, wagon and team constituting the substance of his worldy possessions. At the age of eighteen he has earned his first money as a cowboy, soon afterward he married, and two years thereafter located at Ardmore, Texas. The twelve years which he spent in that locality resulted in some advancement in his worldly status, so that when he came to Marlow in 1897 he brought with him about one thousand dollars' worth of property, chiefly in cattle. His interests have since increased to such extent that he now has a farm of 1,200 acres, and owns 130 acres, with a fine herd of 400 cattle. He also raises good crops of corn and cotton, twelve tenants assisting him in the operation of his estate.

      Joseph G. Littrell, the father, was born in Alabama in the year 1836, and at the outbreak of the Civil war was a farmer in Carroll county, Arkansas. He served through the conflict, and at its conclusion removed to Carroll county Arkansas, where he attained local prominence as a Republican, being elected sheriff of the county named. He afterward returned to Missouri, where he remained until his departure for Texas. The paternal grandfather, Fielden Littrell, was identified with the farming interests of both Missouri and Arkansas, dying in Carroll county, of the latter state, at the age of about ninety years. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph G. Littrell were: Arminda, wife of Gilbert Johnson, of Greer county, Oklahoma; James M., of this notice; John L. of Garvin county, Oklahoma; Edward, of Wetumka, that state; Elsie, who married Robert Funderburg, of Greer county, Oklahoma, and Shelby, of Nowata, that state. James M. Littrell was married April 12, 1883, to Ella Morgan, a daughter of Robert Morgan, of Jasper county, Missouri. Mrs. Littrell was born in that county May 31, 1868, and is the mother of the following: Ida, wife of Henry Carson, a Stephens county farmer; and James, Cobett, Katie, Bertie, Maggie and Wade."

      was told to Roy Littrell by his father John Thomas Littrell
      Some of the first were Felin Littrell who came from Alabama when a young man and settled in the place now owned by Mr. J.M. Anderson in the year of 1851. John J. Littrell, he also being from Alabama, settled the place below Mr. Anderson on Piney owned by Mrs. Fields, in 1851.
      Oledi Howard settled the place on Piney owned by Charley Myers in 1851 not knowing where he came from.
      William Holman and his family came from Tennessee in a boat in 1845 and settled a place ar the mouth of Piney on Kings River owned by G.L. Doss now. Billie Southerland settled a place on Kings River in 1846 he being from Tennessee. B.C. Hawkins settled a place on Piney owned by Mr. Mills in 1850 being from Tennessee.
      The first schoolhouse that was in this community was on Kings River in about 1867. First store was at Rockhouse owned by Mr. Pate. Huntsville was only a Post Office and store then.
      These settlers lived in log cabins, had oxen for their teams and wooden plows. They hunted mostly for their living and beat out corn for their bread. The older people celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving then.
      Their sports were skating on ice, rope jumping and the old people would give a wood cutting and quilting. The men and their families would come for miles. The men cut wood, the women made quilts and gave a large feast or would have a corn husking and the women would weave cloth.
      This was written by Donna Littrell using the same words and spelling that Roy Littrell used.
