Her mother's maiden name was Mary Thatcher. (There is a "Latta Road" in East Palestine, Ohio.)

"History of the Upper Ohio Valley, Volume 1" page 276 - Ezra Latta, one of the enterprising business men of Unity Township, was born in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, being one of two sons born to John Latta and Mary (Rhinehart) Latta. The father was a Pennsylvanian.  He afterwards located in Ohio, and later in Illinois, where he died.  His widow again married and had six children by her second husband.  She finally returned to Ohio, and died in Middleton township in 1875. The other son of her first marriage was John Latta.  Ezra was educated in an old log school house, known as the New Ridge School-house. Subsequently, he learned the milling business, having been apprenticed to a man who operated a flour-mill at Old Falston, Beaver County, Pennsylvania.  After completing his apprenticeship, he removed to Columbiana County, Ohio, and rented a mill of John Crum, which he operated for ten or twelve years, when he was obligated to abandon the business on account of failing health.  At this time, Mr. Latta removed to Western Ohio, and thence to Michigan and Indiana, and for several years was located at Fort Wayne.  In the course of time he returned to his old home, and finding that the mill had changed hands, decided to purchase it.  The man who was operating the mill offered him one-third of the profits for his services, which he accepted.  Subsequently, he engaged in farming, and has since continued in that vocation.  In 1844 he married to Miss Mary Huesten (Houston), daughter of Abram and Mary Huesten, who at that time were residents of Ohio, but who formerly came from Virginia.  Six children are the fruit of this union: Marion C., now of the State of Washington, Webster (deceased), Emma (deceased), Louisa, wife of Joseph Near of southwestern Kansas, and Alonzo Cooper, who lives with his father.  Mr. and Mrs. Latta are valued members of the Methodist Episcopal Church of East Palestine, and are held in high esteem by their neighbors and friends.
