  1. Additional Data on James Latty(sic) – surname should be Latta. James Latta Jr and wife, Nancy Allen Latta (md 1790 Orange Co, NC) moved from Orange Co, NC to Limestone Co, AL by 1817 based on Limestone Co, AL court minutes for lawsuit entered by James Latta against a Mr Kelly for damages and trespassing. Latta’s father, James Latta Sr, of Orange Co, NC and his uncle, John Latta Sr filed complaints of damages for services rendered during the Rev War and were awarded compensation. James Latta Jr recorded several land transactions scattered in Madison Co, Limestone Co, Morgan Co, Lawrence Co and Lauderdale Co according to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) records between 1819-1830-ish. These appear to be actions related to land speculation given the Huntsville Meridian Records show a portion of these actions were returned for non-payment. James and wife, Nancy, settled in Limestone Co with their 5 known children – Jacob, John, Sarah, Mary and Walter, until Nancy’s presumed death around 1831. James Jr began divesting his properties in Limestone Co to his two daughters and moved to Madison Co where he married a Marsilla Ray briefly in 1836 and presumably divorced her in 1838 based on language in land transactions (former husband, late wife). He remained in Madison Co until his death in Mar 1860 as noted above and in the 1860 Mortality Schedules. Eldest son, Jacob C Allen Latta was an early member of the Flint River Baptist Association, was an ordained Minister of the Gospel and helped established at least two known churches in Limestone County in the 1820’s. Son, John married Elizabeth T Danna and had several land transactions in Limestone Co up to 1840. Sarah Latta married a John Criss of Limestone Co based on land transactions between Sarah, sister Mary and brothers John and Walter Latta. Sarah and John Criss moved to Itawamba Co, MS by 1840. Daughter, Mary Jane Latta becomes Samuel Graham’s 2nd wife by 1836 and settled in Limestone Co. She becomes a widow by 1840, raises her three children and lived the reminder of her life in Limestone Co AL. Son, Walter Allen Latta married Elizabeth Ann Speers, daughter of Jesse Speers and wife, Martha Patsy O’Banion/O’Bannon, granddaughter of Thomas O’Banion and Mildred Traylor, in 1838, had 10 known children while living in Limestone Co, AL then move to Blount Co, Al between 1858 and 1860 based on land transactions and 1860 census records where his 11th child was born.
