Joseph Little 1852-1932

   daughter: Mary Lizzie Little
       married: Jack Parker Litt

Joseph Little the 10th child and the 7th son. He and Margaretta had 5 children. I know Joseph William traveled to the US with his cousin Mounsey Little but did not stay.... he returned to England, married and started their family. I have not done a lot of research on this line YET.
 Back/Standing: Mounsey, Joseph William, Mary Lizzie
front l-r: Harry - Joseph & Margaretta Little 

I am sure that you noticed that their third son and child, Joseph William Little, married his first cousin Jane Eliza 'Jennie' Little daughter of Mounsey and Mary Little.  They did not have children but ended up with the care of Paul Albert Little when his father passed away AND of my mother, Mary Jane Little when her parents divorced.

Little, Joseph     head 57 plate layer/ Railroad Company
      Margaretta   wife 57   37 years married  birth to 7 children born live / 4 living / 3 died
      Mary Lizzie  daughter 25 single

So according to the 1911 UK Census, Joseph and Margaretta had 7 children but only 4 are living in 1911. I only know about 5 of the 7 children. I see that Jane Annie was only 14 when she passed away so she would have only been on the 1891, which of course is the only one I can't find YET.

I have had some contact with Joseph and Jennie Little....... it was while I was a teenager and don't really remember much about the visit ......  unfortunately for me.

While a married Air Force wife, living in Germany, we visited Rita (Mary Margaretta Litt) in the Lake County in England. We stayed with her for a couple of weeks. Very nice home. No brewed coffer, but great tea .........  and lots of pubs around with plenty of beer. We drove around each day looking at the Lake Country itself.......  it was a fun visit. At this point in my life I was not thinking genealogy or family research and really missed out on a great opportunity to talk with Rita about her side of the family and the other Littles....... and to look through her family pictures........  what a lost opportunity, so sad!!

Rita visited the America several times during my life time, always staying with my parents in San Carlos California.......... Unfortunately for me I was living on my own, working and not able to make the trip home to visit for any length of time. Again more lost opportunities! And now she has passed so no more opportunities....  not sure where all her family papers and album's went too.
