Following are records of Abraham, Isaac, and Charles Little in south
central VA in the 1700s. By the 1750s, they had settled on Sandy River
just north of Danville, VA.

I strongly suspect, but can not prove, that they are connected to
Charles, Isaac, and Thomas Little who were living on the New River in
Wilkes Co NC in 1778.

Any further information on these Littles (esp. about their origins)
would be much appreciated.
