Chamberlain & Little

I am working on the family history for the Chamberlain and Little Families.
The homestead which was called the "Little Place", lies between House Mountain and Clinch Mountain in Knox Co., Tenn. It is an original land grant thought to be given to Jermiah Chamberlain for his service as a surveyor during the Revolutionary War. Jermiah married Margaret, and family tradition say she was a Worthington. Seems that Margaret was a Carmichael instead of a Worthington. Jermiah gave his son, Ninian Chamberlain, the land grant and it was to a one room log house Ninian Chamberlain brought his bride in 1817.
The family cemetery is located in the cow pasture in the back of the home which is still there as of June 2010. The two families were brought together by Frank Armstrong Little (1833-1924) when he married Margaret "Maggie" A. Chamberlain (1832-1903) in 1865 in Knox Co., Tenn.
Would like to exchange information and stories.
