Yes, we've communicated before when you we're trying to reach Daryl Lytton who hosts the Lytton/Litton/Litten Website.
At the moment, Daryl is working on the Litten family lines from North Carolina.I usually assist him, so lately I've been checking the different Message Boards to see what might be new and helpful.
Henry Allen does not appear to be connected to the Allens that married into the North Carolina Litten family.
I don't have any new info on Maxwell & Margaret (Litten) Nesbitt.Would love to know what happened to their son William O. Nesbitt.
As you know, Uriah & Elizabeth (Nesbitt) Litten migrated to Lawrence Co. Indiana.Uriah Litten is in the 1830 and the 1840 census, but in 1850 it looks like he has died.

Recently found the following info on their daughter Margaret who first married William H. Crawford and second married Jesse Johnson.
BEDFORD WEEKLY MAIL BEDFORD, INDIANA FRIDAY, JULY 20, 1900
Margaret A. Johnson, was born Sept. 14, 1831, and died of apoplexy at her home four and a half miles east of Bedford, June 29, 1900.
Her entire life of 68 years 9 months and 15 days was spent in Lawrence county. Her parents, Uriah and Elizabeth Nesbit Litton were natives of North Carolina. From these God-fearing parents she inherited a character that enabled her nobly to fulfill her duties through life.
Educational and social advantages were limited in her early years. The principal text books used in the schools she attended were the speller, dictionary and the Bible.
At the age of 21 she was married to Wm. H. Crawford, who died of consumption six and a half months later. To this union was born a son who bears his father's name. After a six years' widowhood, she was married to Jesse A. Johnson by whom she born five children, three sons and two daughters. Three months ago her aged companion passed away.
Her life had been full of toil for those she loved. No labor had seemed too hard, but with unselfish devotion when a large household depended upon her management and industry she was ever faithful to every duty that belongs to wife and mother.
She was a true helpmate and with willing hands assisted in out door work as well as in the home. In those days of frugal economy, when people made their clothes, her loom was busy weaving the cloth, and then she made the clothes for their family. "If a thing is worth doing at all it is worth doing well" was closely followed by her in all her life. We who have known her never knew her work to be slighted, but in everything that makes a home perfect, her influence was felt.
Truly there is no home without mother. Although her presence is gone forever, the influence of her life still remains in the lessons derived from her life. We pass away, but our work remains, our example survives.
