Nope....no other responses to this posting (yet).
In the early 1820's, a John Little came to Queens County, New Brunswick - according to the land petition record, he came from England, was married, and had 3 daughters. I have a hunch that this is the same John Little who married Mary Maskall years later (first wife probably passed away etc), but have come up with no evidence by checking the provincial archives in Fredericton, New Brunswick (also have nothing on the 3 daughters who were born in England and came with their father and mother).
Since records during this time period are rather sketchy - it might have been possible that there were 2 John Littles' from England living in Queens County, NB at the same time - I have yet to find that either.....
I am hoping that maybe there might be something passed down on the John Little/Maskall line that might have indicated that John was previously married and/or that their children might have had half-sisters etc.
Definitely a long shot.
Your recollection is correct - there are numerous trees on ancestry.com with the Litte/Levesque/Searles lines (even noticed some very old photos) - always hoping/wishing a long-lost document (maybe a family bible) might have been passed down that will prove my hunch.
