Thomas Little and his brother, Theophilus, were appointed to the same Court of Common Pleas and Quarterly Sessions where their father and grandfather had served for 60-years. When Thomas was elected to the New Jersey Legislature, "Squire" Thomas, the son of Theophilus, was appointed to fill the vacancy. This took place in 1803. Thomas served the court for ten years during which time his uncle Thomas was chosen as the acting Lieutenant Governor. It was before this, at the turn of the century, that the family began to splinter.
On 25 Jan 1811, Theophilus' son Thomas purcahsed 160 acres on Muncy Creek from John Lochard for $195 (Book 9, page 316). In November of the same year, Theophilus purchased an additional 402.5 acres from Priestly (Book 12, page 122). His sons Daniel and Tobias Little came with their families in 1804 and commenced to improve the land. A settlement called "Little's Corners" was established about a mile west of Eaglesmere and Lewis Lake at a point where the State Highway from Eaglesmere now joins the highway from Forksville to Muncy Valley.
"Squire" Thomas had married Lydia Jackson, the daughter of Benjamin Jackson and Rebecca Green, and later migrated to Granville, Licking County, Ohio, arriving in the winter of 1815 with their son Theophilus, daughter Jane, and son-in-law Jarod Bancroft.(from http://www.rootsweb.com/~pasulliv/settlers/settlers25/settlers25.htm).
