Little Family Cemetery
The Thomas Little Cemetery is located on the north side of Hutcheson Ferry at the intersection of Cochran Mill Rd, on private property.
The cemetery is in a copse (small group of trees) in an open field. It has one visible gravesite that includes a tombstone that is lying on the ground, engraved with the words:
Thomas H. Little
Mary Ann Richardson Grace provided the following information about this grave site on March 9, 2013:
My nephew, Robert Richardson, called and shared with me some research that he had done that had been a mystery to my generation of Richardsons. That mystery being the cemetery on the home place with none of our relatives. (The Thomas Little site.)
Across the road from the home place there is a little group of trees........this is a cemetery but no one that any of our family knew. There is only one tomb stone, Thomas Little. There are several other graves that are unmarked. Robert's research has revealed that a family by the name of John and Ann Little had purchased this 101 1/2 acres of Land Lot 28 from the Cochrans. My grandfather Hill Richardson then purchased this land in 1895. Thus........the house that I grew up in and known as the Richardson Homeplace was originally "Little Land" and was a neighbor of the William Landrus Richardsons.
I know nothing more of the John Little family. Perhaps they are buried in this cemetery. Thomas was their son and the tomb stone was placed there in 1930 (before I was born) by his brother (J.W.). The stone is an official Confederate marker. Thomas was in Co. B 4th Ga. Reg. He was killed March 5, 1865.
