                                                               1 ISAAC (1) LATTA

Born about 1786; Died: ____.   Married twice. Married Sarah Sparks, daughter of Solomon Sparks and Rachel Weimer. (Info. from Hollar Bible) Solomon Sparks was born on July 13, 1760 in Frederick Co., MD, and came to Bedford County at the age of 16 with two brothers. He enlisted in Boyd's Ranger Company of the Pennsylvania Militia in the spring of 1782 to fight the Indians who were allies of Great Britain during the Revolutionary War. He served for a period of about fifteen months. At the close of the Rev. War, he returned to Frederick Co., MD for about two years before returning to Bedford County. It may have been in Frederick County, MD that he married Rachel Weimer. On April 16, 1794, Solomon received 400 acres of land in Bedford County, probably for his service in the Pennsylvania Militia. He also received 200 acres from the State of Pennsylvania. (His Will states that the 200 acres was located on Owl Creek in Crawford County, PA) With the outbreak of the second war with Great Britain in June 1812, Solomon organized a company of 2nd Regiment of Pennsylvania Riflemen, commanded by Col. William Piper. Included in Sparks' company as a 2nd Corporal was his nephew, James Sparks and the roster of privates included another nephew, Joseph Sparks and his own two sons, Abraham Sparks and Joseph Sparks. The unit saw action in Buffalo, NY. Many years later he applied for a pension for his service. Solomon Sparks was undoubtedly a successful farmer. His home was made of brick which was a bit uncommon in the rural areas of that time. He was also a shrewd businessman and made careful and profitable investments. His daughter, Sarah was born on Dec. 16, 1786 in Bedford Co., PA and died September 13, 1850 in Bedford Co., PA. Buried in the Union Cemetery, Bedford Co., PA. Isaac Latta's second wife, if he did have one, is reported to be unknown. Did Isaac Latta leave his first wife, Sarah, or did he die. Was Sarah perhaps his second wife?

2 WILLIAM (2) b. June 21, 1809.  Died Sept. 8, 1877 in Bedford County, PA. 
12 JULIA (2) b. 1822; d. 1880; m. William Manspeaker at Everett, Pa.

75 INDIANA (2) b. 1817; m. _____ Hughs or Hayes. (Was this the "Delilah Hughes" listed in Abraham Sparks' estate, or was Delilah perhaps Indiana's daughter?)

(A man named Isaac Latta married a Mary Ford in Seneca, NY on Nov. 15, 1820. This may have been this Isaac.)

Solomon Sparks left an inheritance of $100 to his grandson, William Latta in his will which is of record in Bedford County. His will reads, in part, as follows:

"My son, Abraham, is to pay to my five beloved daughters, namely, Sarah, Hannah, Mary, Delilah and Rachel, the sum of $200 my grandson, William Latta, I give $100 to be paid to him when he comes of age." Solomon's will was made January 10, 1821. Solomon Sparks died on April 8, 1838 at the age of 77 years, 8 months, and 25 days.

Morgart, son of Abraham Morgart and Sarah McIlvaine, on August 19, 1879.

PA. Six children: 1) Howard John 2) Chalmer Lewis 3) Lottie Viola 4) Goldie M. 5) Jessie I. and 6) Marshall William. Bedford Gazette, February 27, 1920 - Obituary for Rachel Morgart: MRS. JOHN MORGART: Mrs. John Morgart, nee Latta, passed away Saturday at her Everett home, in the 66th year of her life. She was born near Ray's hill, this county. Surviving are two brothers, her husband and seven children. Death was due to influenza. Interment was made in the Everett cemetery Tuesday afternoon. For more information on the Morgart family see website at

The 1850 Bedford Co. Census for E. Providence Twp, shows William Latta, age 40, farmer, born in PA, married to Madelina, age 33, born in PA. Their children were: John, 13, school, William, 10, school, Abram, 2, and Philip, 1. The 1880 Bedford Co. Census, shows Magdalene Latta, age 64, widowed, born in PA, living with her daughter and son-in-law, John M. Morgart, age 21, and Rachael A. Morgart, age 26. Living next door was Abraham Morgart, age 48 and wife Sarah, age 44, and three daughters. We would assume that these were the parents of John M. Morgart.



1850 Bedford Co. Census - West Providence Township

Abraham Sparks, 59, farmer and innkeeper

Sarah (no last name), 63 *this would have been his sister (Sarah Latta)

Rachel - 41

Juliann Hughes - 24 *would this be the daughter of Indiana Latta Hughes?

Rachel Mandel - 22

William Latta - 9 *did he take William and Jane to live with him and their grandmother, perhaps after their mother's death. Their father would have remarried. Or was he just living there during school?

Jane Latta - 7 *did he take William and Jane to live with him and their grandmother, perhaps after their mother's death. Their father would have remarried.

William Chaney - 23, laborer

This record shows that William Latta (age 9) and his sister Jane Latta (age 7) were living with their Great-uncle Abraham Sparks, brother to Sarah Sparks Latta, their grandmother. If it is the same William, son of William and Margaret Causlett, above, then he is listed in two households during the 1850 census. Perhaps he was living at the inn owned by Abraham Sparks while he was going to school, so both households included him.

The Sparks Family website at states that after the death of his father in 1838, Abraham Sparks headed a household composed of his sisters, Sarah and Rachel, his nephew William Latta and grand-niece Jane Latta. He apparently never married. A considerable portion of the real estate owned by Abraham Sparks was located in Bureau County, Illinois, and this may be the reason why his brother Joseph migrated there. Abraham's heirs were listed as: Hannah Bogges, exec of Jonas Sparks, Philip Hollar, Admin of Hannah Hollar, Delilah Hughes, Julia Manspeaker, heir of Sarah Sparks, Mary Morgert, Rachel Kennard, William States, guardian of heirs of John Sparks, and J. S. Sparks.
