Bittle brothers keep legacy of Littlestown's Stonesifer-King alive

BITTLE BROS. - Littlestown brothers Clifton, left, and Clinton Bittle are documenting the life of town native Myrtle Louise Stonesifer-King. On the steps of her home at 14 S. Queen St., Clifton shows a late 1930s publicity shot of Myrtle Louise and Criswell in Central Park, NYC, and Clinton has an early 1970s publicity photo of Myrtle Louise sitting on her steps with her poodles, Buttercup and Mr. Chips.

Myrtle Louise Stonesifer-King believed in reincarnation and that she could predict the future; she insisted she was coming back.

Brothers Clinton and Clifton Bittle rediscovered Littlestown's semi-celebrity actress in 2010, and have since spent most of their waking hours devoted to everything Myrtle, from her big black poodles to her sore feet.
