The descendants of Capt. Daniel Little (b c1731 Germany?, d 10 Dec 1775 Salisbury, Rowan Co. NC) started the Capt. Daniel Little, Esquire, Inc. family organization in August 1978 at a family reunion in Hickory NC. This was the culmination of many years work by Lawrence Lewis (Larry) Little of Portales NM. The first president of Capt. Daniel Little, Esquire, Inc. was Arthur C. Little of Newton NC. A newsletter (The Little Bit) was begun in 1978 and Larry Little was the first editor. Family reunions have been held every other year since then.

Disagreements exists about who are the parents of Capt. Daniel Little. There are three competing theories:
Interesting fact: In the 1990 census the frequency of ocurrence of the Little surname was 0.046% with rank 226; of the Klein surname was 0.026% with rank 436; of the Cline surname was 0.020 with rank 595; and of the Kline surname was 0.015 with rank 770.
I am running a Little/Klein/Cline/Kline male-line Y-chromosome test project to try to settle the disagreement about Capt. Daniel Little's parents. For the results so far see http://www.roperld.com/captlittlegenetics.
Male-line Little/Klein/Cline/Kline family members are urged to participate in this project to help determine the origin of Capt. Daniel Little. The test is very simple and painless; just brush the insides of cheeks with a soft swab. The tests are managed by http://www.familytreedna.com of Houston TX through a well-known genetics lab at Univ. of AZ. It costs $101 for a 12-marker test, which is sufficient to determine the major family, and $171 for a 25-marker test, which helps determine branches of the major family. If you will agree to be tested, please contact L. David Roper at email@example.com or click the box below.

Four descendants of Capt. Daniel Little for whom he is the nearest common ancestor have been tested and have nearly the same 25 markers, so their 25 markers are the same as for Capt. Daniel Little. Two of them have exactly the same 25 markers, so those are probably the 25 markers for Capt. Daniel Little. For 37 markers they differ by at least one relative mutation; however, three of them have exactly the same last 12 markers. So the most probable 37 markers for Capt. Daniel Little are:
Another Little, Allen Wayne Little, who is not a descendants of Capt. Daniel Little, has been tested and tests as being related to Capt. Daniel Little. His family history indicates that he descends from the Kleins/Littles of Littlestown PA. So this results constitutes excellent evidence that Capt. Daniel Little is related to that Klein/Little family, as first proposed by Lawrence Lewis Little! The differences between the 37 markers for Allen and the others indicates that the common Klein/Little ancestor for all of them is:
The three entries in red indicate the uncertainty in those three markers. More Klein/Littles not closely related to these five need to be tested to determine those three markers for their common Klein/Little ancestor.
Here is a map of the towns in Germany where this Klein family lived.
Any Little/Klein/Cline/Kline male who wants to find out if he is related to Capt. Daniel Little can have his 12 or 25 Y-chromosome markers measured to see if they are the same or differ by only 1 or 2 relative mutations from this set.
