    "Benjamin F. Little, ex-sheriff and prominent farmer, was born in Bedford County, Tenn., September 13, 1839, and is the son of John and Margaret (Johnson) Little. The father was born in Rowan County, N. C., was reared there, and came to Tennessee when a young man. He was married in Lincoln County of the last named State, but only lived there a short time, when he removed to Bedford County, of the same State, and remained there a number of years. In 1850 he moved to Washington County, Ark., and settled at West Forks, where he died October 20, 1874. He was a farmer all his life, and also took a great interest in all public affairs. The mother was reared in Lincoln County, Tenn., and died in Washington County, Ark., March 20, 1884. Benjamin F. Little was reared on a farm, and remained with his parents until he was grown, after which he went to Fayetteville, and here, in 1871, was married to Miss Caroline Woolsey, a native of Washington County, Ark., and six children were the result of this union: Mary C. (deceased). John W., infant (deceased), Emily, Lillie D. and Mamie. In 1872 Mr. Little moved to Goshen Township, where he now has a farm of over 222 acres, seventy-five acres bottom land and 120 acres under cultivation. He has devoted his time exclusively to farming, except four years while he served as sheriff of the county, from 1862 to 1872. Mr. Little is a Royal Arch Mason, is a Republican in politics, and is a straightforward, enterprising citizen. During the late war he served as sergeant of Company D, First Arkansas Cavalry, United States Volunteers, three years, and was a competent and gallant officer."
