Fathers of the Ridge, Vol. III, Genealogical Sketches of Greene and Clay Counties - 1980........LATTA - William S. Latta was born in North Carolina in 1822. His wife, Bennetta, was born in Tennessee in 1826. In 1850 this family was living in Union County, Illinois and their children were: John, 1842, Susannah, 1844; and Joseph, 1848. John and Susannah were born in Tennessee, but Joseph was born in Illinois. By 1860 the Latta family had moved to Greene County and settled in Bradshaw Township. By this latter date five more children had been added to the household: A.E. (a daughter), 1850; W.1 (a son), 1852, Mary E., 1854; Thomas, 1857; and Sarah, 1859. A.E. was born in Illinois and W.1 in Tennessee. The three younger children were born in Arkansas. By 1870 William S. Latta and his wife, Olive C., were still living in Bradshaw Township and by this date three more children had been added to the household: Martha B., 1861; Audey L., 1864, and Eller Jane, 1869. William S. Latta is buried at the New Hope Cemetery in Clay County, Arkansas. His marker shows dates of 1821 and 1911. In 1850 the Spencer Laws family was living in the same neighborhood with the Latta family in Union County, Illinois (see LAWS, Vol. III)

LAWS - Spencer Laws was born in North Carolina in 1811. His wife, Mary, was born in Tennessee in the same year. In 1850 this family was living in Union County, Illinois and their children were: David, 1834; John, 1840; and James, 1846. All the children were born in Illinois. Mary Powell, born in North Carolina in 1788, was also a member of the household at this time. By 1860 the Laws family had moved to Greene County and settled in Bradshaw Township. James Laws, son of Spencer, was still living at home at this time. Vercilla Forrest, born in Tennessee in 1854, was also a member of the household. David Laws married a woman named Alpha, born in Kentucky in 1839. In 1860 David and Alpha were living next to David's parents in Bradshaw Township. Their children at this time were: H. E. (a daughter), 1856; and E. P. (a daughter), 1858. H.E. was born in Illinois and E.P. in Arkansas. It should be noted that, in 1850, the Laws family lived in the same neighborhood with the William S. Latta family in Union County, Illinois. The Latta family also moved to Bradshaw Township in Greene County during the 1850s.

2004 NOTE: Could Mary Laws be a sister to William S. Latta? She was born in TN and William's wife was born in TN. Was this where William met his wife? Notice from the census below that his wife's parents were also from NC.
