I have located a few items that might be of some help.
In the 1840 Federal Census for
1 male 0/5 (b. 1835-1840)

If you line up the Littlefield children based on their ages from the 1850 and 1860 censuses, they look roughly like this:
Since census ages are notoriously wrong, there are still
adjustments that could be made, but I think, other than missing one son in the
10/15 bracket, and there being a possible brother or brother-in-law, this
could be the family. There is another Littlefield who married in

Dear Ms. Huffman:
One of my gg grandmothers, Sarah Littlefield, was born in
. I have reason to believe she came from the Brown/Schuyler/Adam County area. I reviewed the 1850 census available on the Brown County Genweb page and found a group of underage Littlefield children living with miscellaneous families. I believe they may have been orphaned. I am wondering if one or two of the individuals listed below are their parents. I appreciate your help. Illinois
Littlefield, Cordelia (Harney)________ 225
Littlefield, J. C.________ 96
Littlefield, Luella________ 96
Littlefield, M. S.________ 96
Littlefield, N. R.________ 225
The 1850 census shows Joseph Littlefield, age 18 born in NY; and Elizabeth Littlefield, age 7, born in IL, are living with the family of Jefferson and Betsy Cleaves, in
Lee Township, . Brown County
Actually I just noticed that in the early marriage database: LITTLEFIELD,
married Jefferson CLEAVES 4 Apr 1847. So it looks like Betsy Cleaves is their mother. But I'm still looking for their father. Elizabeth
Also, in the 1850 Census in Mount Sterling, Brown County, a Sarah Littlefield (10) is living with a Dr. James and Phebe Allen. Sarah is probably a servant, it doesn't appear she is related to Phebe. Sarah was born in IL.
Lastly, in the 1850 Census, Warren Littlefield (Laborer), age 17, born in NY is living with George and Elizabeth Nokes in
, IL. Lee Township
I wonder if all these children aren't siblings. The 1860 census for
Lee Township, , shows Elizabeth Littlefield, age 18, living with Nathaniel C. Bean, age 22, and his wife Sarah Littlefield Bean, age 22. Brown County
The 1860 Census for
Pea Ridge Township, shows Jos. Littlefield, age 27, born in NY and W. F. Littlefield, a male age 25 living together along with Jos's wife and baby. Brown County
