"DAVID LITTLE of Scituate, son of Ephraim and Mary (Sturtevant) Little, married in Little Compton, R. I., Dec. 2 1703, Elizabeth Southworth. She was alive in 1719. His will dated 12 Feb. 1750, speaks of wife Abigail, sons Ephraim, David, Nathaniel; daus. Eliz. Otis, Mary Cudworth and Mercy Little. Son Barnabas Little, executor. I would like to know how many of these children belong to the first wife. Who was the second wife? Who was the husband of Mary Cudworth? Also the husband of Mercy Little? I would like their families."
