  The Greensboro Patriot, (Guilford Co, NC), Wednesday, January 21, 1903 Tar Heel Member of Jesse James' Gang. At his home, in Lanesboro township, Mr. Merrimon LITTLE, after a short illness of pneumonia, died last Saturday [10th]. Mr. LITTLE, who was 76 years of age, was well known in upper Anson and Union Counties. The Messenger-Intelligencer is informed by several reliable parties that Mr. LITTLE was, at one time, a member of the famous Jesse JAMES Gang, the history of which is well known to every one. Just how long he followed the daring James boys, or why he left them, is not known, as Mr. LITTLE, of course, was always reticent in regard to the matter. He, however, imbibed some of the daring spirit of his leader, as many of his neighbors well knew, and some of them to their sorrow. But whatever his past may have been, we bow our heads and say, "Peace to his ashes." Wadesboro Messenger Intelligencer.
