I saw your posting regarding the Littlehale family. I am a fan of the author Ralph Moody (Little Britches, Man of Family, Fields of Home, etc.). According to his book "Fields of Home" he met and later married Annie Littlehale who was from Maine. They met when Ralph lived on his grandfather Jacob Gould's farm in Maine when he was a teenager, and the Littlehale's were neighbors. Maybe these Littlehale's are related to the ones mentioned in your book that were in Maine. It sounds like an interesting book. Good luck with it.
