      Samuel had a daughter Frances who married William Littman/Letman in 1710. I am looking for clues to the family of Letmans of Prince George's County MD (Jane, son John, two daughters possibly including Ann, possible son William who died in Rev War in 1781), perhaps linked to George Letman of Montgomery Co. The name is apparently English, not German. I don't know if William and Frances are connected, but it's the first mention of the name I have found from the right time period
