About Littrell Family.net:

Littrell, Luttrell, Literal, Comer, Ezell, Urban, Landtroop, Hampton, Tennessee, Missouri, and reunions.

Its all here.

Welcome to the website for communicating the history [genealogical research] of the Littrell/Luttrell family and their allied families.

This is where I post information on the various family lines for the name Littrell, or Luttrell, or Literal, or any of the many varied spellings* of that name throughout history. I have researched the history of the Littrell, Luttrell and Literal family for over 15 years now and have written several books on the Littrell and Luttrell families of Europe, Colonial America, Tennessee and Missouri. I am presently writing and planning to write several more as well as re-editing the previous books. In addition to the Littrell and Luttrell histories I hope to write on the Comer, Urban, Smith, Ellis, Sandy and Ezell families of Colonial America and particularly Tennessee....gdl 2007

To get the most out of LittrellFamily.net and to understand how you can contribute click on the 'Making the Most of this Website.' link below.

Whenever referring to a specific Littrell/Luttrell or a specific branch I will use the accepted spelling for that branch, but when referring to Littrell/Luttrells in general I will use the ‘Littrell’ spelling.

Military Role Call: Update 11-23-2012


Since the reunion I have returned to working on this book with the hope of getting it done in the next few months.  If you haven't sent me military information on your Littrell, ancestors, descendants, cousins or siblings please do so as soon as possible. 

Please don't make the common mistake of waiting until you have all your information together before sending it.  This almost always results in none of your information making it into the book. Any information I receive before the book is sent to the publisher will be worked into the book.

Send me what you have now to insure that at least that makes it into the book.  Any updated information you send later will be added if the book isn't already done or will be added to the next edition.

So don't hesitate, send what you have now!

Why Does the Title Specify "...East Prairie..."?

Over the years the majority of information on military service has come from the descendants of John & Kizzie Littrell of East Prairie, Missouri, my direct ancestors.  This is probably due more to circumstance and coincidence for several reasons, but make no mistake about it my intention is to include information on all service that is reported to me as long as their is a connection to the direct line of Timmons Literal with  consideration given to allied families.  The present plan is to include the non-descendants of John & Kizzie in their own chapter or if enough is received possibly a second book.  I will also include information on significant individuals such as Col. John Luttrell above and Sgt. John Pittman who while not direct ancestors or even family members by their achievements are worthy of mentioning their connection to our family.  Another example would be Col. Henderson and Daniel Boone, two significant historical figures who had major influences on our families both directly through Col. Luttrell and indirectly through their influence on historical events (the Cumberland Gap) that impacted our direct ancestors.

I am limiting the focus of this (these) book(s) on the ancestral and descendant lines of Timmons Literal because there has already been significant work done on the broader military service of our colonial namesakes:

HEROES In the WAR for American Independence
All Spellings

While this book is out of print I have been working on reproducing it for Ms. Goldsberry in the past and will return to that effort soon.

George Washington Littrell

Hi Glen,
My name is Sandy Littrell Miller. I am the eldest child of Benerd Paul
Littrell and Georgia Gerldine Littrell of Rolla Missouri. My grandfather was
Milton Earl Littrell and his father was George Washington Littrell. George
was one of 12 children and so was his father George.
My family came to Missouri from Kentucky. We also have a lot of Indian in us
both my grandma Irene Leaf Littrell and my grandpa Earl were 1/2 Cherokee.
My dad is very ill and finding out about the Littrell family will make his
month of hospitalization much happier. Our family settled in Washington
County Missouri and my dad grew up in a little town called Richwoods.
FYI.. In Lee Summit Missouri is a living history museum, and the
Littrell/Luttrell cabin from 1856 is still standing there. Email me when you
get the chance!
