John Littrell Graveyard

Sent: Sunday, November 29, 2009 4:27 PM


     My name is Delbert Heskett. I am looking for the gravesites of my great-great-grandparents, Jessie Payne and Martha Francis Payne. I have a copy of a death certificate that says Jessie was buried in the John Littrell Graveyard which I believe to be in Barren County, Kentucky. They were born and died in Barren County.

     The directions that I have are 0.4 mile east of the Warren County line on highway 1297 and then south 0.6 mile on Littrell Road. Then west at Wallace Littrell's place and then south to a tobacco barn.

     I have not been able to find any transcriptions of the tombstones in the cemetery. I would prefer not to have to drive all of the way from Texas to Kentucky without some more concrete information. Do you have any information, please?

     Thank you.

I can't say I have an exact match for your Williams's, but the closest of the 44 William Littrell/Luttrells I have are:

  • a.. William Luttrell [FTJ#3116], b. abt.1795 in Virginia [or possibly TN as his Parents, William and Elizabeth Witt Luttrell moved to E Tenn abt. 1796]. He supposedly died in St. Francis County, Missouri [date unknown. I have no family information on him other than his wife was supposed to be Susan Kerr [?Sarah?], whom he married in Jefferson Co., TN. 1-2-1822. He was a bondsman for the marriage of two of his sisters in 1818 in Knox County TN. When he left TN or arrived in Missouri is unknown but it would not me unusual for him to have been in KY at some time after 1822 as he did have cousins in KY. What part of Kentucky Is Littrell Kentucky, I believe I've seen reference to a Littrell community in south central KY and possibly a town of Littrell in E. KY. This William's family lived in the same area that the town of "Luttrell" TN eventually grew from.
  • b.. William F. Luttrell [FTJ#4957], son of James Luttrell, b. before 1832. All indications are he was born in E. Tenn, I have no more information on him at all. He was the nephew of the above William.
  • c.. William M. Luttrell [FTJ#3839], son of Rodhom & Matilda Horton Luttrell, b. between 1825-1830 in KY., probably south central area of Green/Lincoln/Adair/Casey Counties. Married Sarah McGowan, 1-12-1848 in Garrard CoKY., and had two known children: Martha & Precilla. Other children, death dates, and location after marriage unknown.
  • d.. William Thomas Luttrell [FTJ#5054], son of John R. & Mary Alice Duncan Luttrell of Morgan CoIL. John R. was born in Adair CoKY and he and Mary were married in Morgan CoIL.; where William T. was probably born on 12-20-1831. William T. had a brother, Isaac, whom he wrote to from service as a Union soldier. Post Civil war information on William T. is unknown or I haven't processed it yet.

I realize The above probably won't match up with your Williams but don't be shy about reminding me to recheck in the future. I'll put your info in my 'check back on later' file but sometimes I overlook a possible connection if I'm not reminded to.
