Adair Littlejohn

Obituary of N. B. Littlejohn, Stilwell, Oklahoma

The spirit of N. B. Littlejohn, of Stilwell, Okla., passed from its earthly tenement on November 5, 1915. A wounded and maimed veteran of the sixties, from which he suffered during fifty years, he was spared sickness and pain when he laid down for the last long sleep. He loved the cause of the Southland even more, perhaps, in his declining years than when following the Stars and Bars. All Stilwell and his friends everywhere regarded him highly for his noble character.

N. B. Littlejohn was born in Spartanburg, S. C., and had reached the age of seventy-six years. When a young man he went to Texas and at the beginning of the War between the States enlisted in Company G, 52d Texas Cavalry Regiment, serving with bravery and distinction. He was wounded in the battle of Chickamauga and received an honorable discharge.

After the war he engaged in the mercantile business at Evansville, Ark., until 1898, when the family removed to Stilwell, Okla., where he was a leading merchant for many years, lending his loyal support to the upbuilding of the town, morally as well as materially. In his years of life in Stilwell he filled acceptably the duties of mayor and town treasurer. He was a devoted member of the Presbyterian Church.

In 1872 he was married to Miss Narcona Adair, who survives him with their four children, a son and three daughters.
