William Gray LITTLE.497
William Gray LITTLE was born between 1805 and 1813.527 William Gray was a minor in 1826 (possibly still minor in 1828, but not clear.) To be a minor in 1826, he would have been born in 1805 or later. He was not a minor by 1834, so he was born by 1813. He died bet 1854.372 Wm. Gray Little had died leaving one son as heir by the time his brother Amariah had died. Parents: Noe (Noah) LITTLE and Mary EDMONDSON.
Dr. William Gray LITTLE was born on 19 Dec 1828.140 He died on 21 Jan 1893.140 Parents: William LITTLE and Termperance SPEIGHT.
William Gray LITTLE was born about 1867 in Sumter Co. AL.497 Parents: William Gray LITTLE and Laura HIBBLER.
William Lewis LITTLE was born on 25 Dec 1918 in Abbott AR.54 He died on 20 Aug 1992 in Pine Bluff AR. Bill died from Leukemia, which had been diagnosed two years earlier. Parents: William Alfred LITTLE and Montezella LEWIS.
William P. LITTLE was born between 1810 and 1815 in Anson Co. NC.19,672,1081 William P. was listed in Pleasant's will as if he were of age but still living at home. To be of age in 1832, he would have been born by 1811.
In the 1830 census, Pleasant Little had 2 males 10-15 (b 1815-1820) and 2 males 5-10.
In the 1840 census, Rachel Little had two males living with her age 20 to 30 (born 1810-1820).
In the 1860 Anson Co. census, Wm P. Little was listed as 45, making him born in 1815. He appeared in the census in 1840 in Anson Co. NC.1081 In the 1840 census, Rachel Little was listed on pg 77, with two adult males age 20-30 and two minor males and with three minor females and 1 female age 30 to 40, as well as herself age 50 to 60.
Since William P. Little is not listed separately and there were four males listed in Pleasant's 1832 will as if they were still at home, I am guessing that the males listed with Rachel are the same ones listed in the will. Therefore William would be age 20 to 30. He appeared in the census in 1860 in Anson Co. NC.1082 In 1860, Wm. P. Little (age 45) is listed on page 538, household 762. The first person listed, oddly, is 14 year old Mary Reiketts. I have not checked the previous page, but believe this was a mistake; based on a similar mistake on the next page, it is likely Mary was a member of the previous family. Parents: Pleasant LITTLE and Rachel KNOX?.
William P. LITTLE was born about 1853 in NC.750,1083 Randy has Pink's year of birth as 1874. He died about 1930 in Henderson Co. TN.1083 Parents: James "Jimmy" LITTLE and Sarah HOLMES.
William Person LITTLE was born on 12 Nov 1765 in Hertford Co. NC.1084,1085 Mayflower Families says William was born 12 Oct 1765. It references The Colonial and State History of Hertford Co., Benjamin B. Winborne. He appeared in the census in 1800 in Halifax, Warren Co. NC.1086 William P. Little was 26-44, his wife was 16-25, and his son was under 10. He had 10 slaves. He appeared in the census in 1810 in Warren Co. NC.1087 There were 2 males 45+, 1 male 26-44, 1 male 10-15, 1 male under 10. There were 4 females under 10 and one 16-25. He had 52 slaves. He appeared in the census in 1820 in Warrenton, Warren Co. NC.1088 William was 45+ . He had one male 10-16 and one under 10. There were 2 females 26-45, one 16-26, 3 10-16, one under 10. He had 50 slaves. 40 people were engaged in agriculture. An Elizabeth Little is on the same page, age 16-25 with a younger female under 10. He owned before 1829 in Hertford Co. NC.1089 The John Vann papers contain 5 letters from William Person Little and Thomas Person Little. "The Cross and Vann families maintained a business relationship with the Little family who had acquired the plantation and fishery at Old Town in Maney's Neck on lands that had in the first half of the eighteenth century been occupied as a life reservation by the Meherrin Indians. John Vann, who acquired rights to the fishery at Mount Gallant, acted as the business manager at Old Town plantation for William Person Little (1765-1829), while Jesse R. Cross and John Gatling operated Little's fishery at Old Town. In the following generation, John Arline Vann acted as trustee for Thomas Person Little (1799-1856), son and successor of William Person Little to the property at Old Town plantation. The copy of the 1861 will of James Magett in the collection includes references to joint land business with Thomas P. Little." He was buried in 1829 in Little Manor, Warren Co. NC. He died on 19 Jul 1829 in Little Manor, Warren Co. NC.1090 "As a planter he named his home in eastern Warren Co. Little Manor, from which the town of Littleton took its name."
A site called Ancestors of Ashley Lynn Wilson says "In 1760, Thomas Person married Johanna Thomas of Granville County. They had no children. She died insane without issue and he adopted his nephew, William Person Little, educated him and made him his principal heir. The town of Littleton, North Carolina is named for William Person Little." This Thomas Person was in Warren Co. NC, which makes it quite possible that this is the same William Person Little. But, William's father George did not die until William was about 21 or 22. So being adopted makes no sense.
Apparently a pastel of William Person Little, by W.J. Williams, exists. It is referenced in Dictionary of Pastellists before 1800 by Neil Jeffares.

they were married. They removed to Alabama in an early day and there both
passed from life a few years after locating. Of a family of four sons and
four daughters born to them the subject of this sketch is the only one

No matter, in what business a man may engage, if he is industrious
and fair in his dealings with his fellow-men, he is sure, sooner or later,
to win their confidence, respect and liking, and to become, in time,
well-to-do in worldly goods. Mr. Looper possesses these qualities, and,
as a consequence, stands remarkably high in the estimation of all who
know him. He was born is South Carolina, in 1845, to Joseph D. and Mellie
(Freeman) Looper, both of whom were born in South Carolina, where they
were reared and married. The following family was born to them: James G.,
William D., Elizabeth (wife of Benjamin Gibson), Marcus A., Joseph R.,
Henry M., and one that died in infancy. The parents removed from their
native State to Georgia about 1853 or 1854, and there Mrs. Looper died at
the age of about thirty-five years, a member of the Baptist Church, and
after her death Mr. Looper removed to Texas, but stayed there only a
short time, moving in 1857, to Scott County, Ark. In 1863 he was married
a second time, to a Mrs. Turmon, of this county, who died in 1872, a
worthy member of the Baptist Church at the time of her demise. Mr. Looper
enlisted in the Federal Army in 1863, becoming a member of Company H.
Second Arkansas Infantry, under Capt. Charles E. Berry, but his entire
service was confined to his own State. He was with Gen. Steele on the
Camden Raid, and was in the fight at Saline. He received his discharge on
August 8, 1865, after which he returned to his home and engaged in
farming, marrying in 1868, Miss Frances Looper, a daughter of Henry and
Mary (Freeman) Looper, Mr. Looper and his wife being third cousins. They
have eight children: Henry E., Sonora A. (deceased), Minnie A., Joseph W.,
Myrtle B., Charles V., William B. and James R. (deceased). Mr. Looper has
a good farm of 161 acres, and on the 80 acres that he has under

most highly respected citizens and successful farmers, and socially
belongs to Lodge No. 163 of the A. F. & A. M. of Mansfield. He and his
wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and to this as
