1930's Note: In an effort to connect the American Latta's with some now living in Scotland, I obtained, from a friend of mine, the name of Prof. Robert Latta, University of Glasgow, Scotland. I wrote him but he could give me no information of any value in that direction, only that in his family the names Matthew, John, David, Alexander, James and Robert were very common, which indicates a probable connection, as those names run all through the Latta family. -- 11 Thomas Waller Latta.
