He served Wyoming County in the state legislature, and during the administration of President Buchanan was Judge of the Court of Claims at the national capital. He was an uncle of Geo. P. Little, Esq., of Montrose, being a brother of the late Ralph B. Little, dec'd, of Montrose. By the way, the Little's seem to be a family of lawyers.
