About Lyman Omer Littlefield

"My brother Josiah saddled his horse and rode with me about ten miles, when he turned back and I pursued my journey alone. Since that parting, Josiah and Lyman have never met, and the only tidings I have had concerning him is that he, soon after our separation, went in company with a Mr. Strode to Texas."

Letter from Sarah Jane Littlefield Dustin's grandaughter, Mrs. W. J. Caldwell to Elizabeth Ann Littlefield Bass Glass

Mrs. W. J. Caldwell 3320 Idell St. Los Angeles, Ca.

March 29, 1929

Mrs. E.A. Glass 520 West Elm St. Hillsboro, Texas

Dear Mrs. Glass, We were very glad to receive your letter. Mother thinks you are our relation. She has a letter written by Grand mother's brother Lymon Littlefield in the year of 1889 it was written to my grandmother Sarah Jane Littlefield's King(?) if she ever heard from him since 1839 that he went to Texas with a Mr. Strode. We want to get in communication with you because we heard that a large estate has been left there to the heirs of Wadlo Littlefield and it has been lying for forty years and they tell us it amounts to quite a fortune. Mother found the address I sent to you first in some of grandmother's papers now find out all you can about your ancestors find out who your fathers mother and father were you know we can't go ahead until we find all of the heirs. Let us know how many there are of your own family and if there are any more of your brothe'rs family in Texas. Your distant relative Mrs. W. J. Caldwell
