Evidently, John and Ellen Stradden had another daughter who married a Latta also. Why would they have two grandsons named Latta????)

END OF BRANCH..............................................................NOTES BELOW
Richard Henville Latta writes: "Looking over various records of the D.A.R. and S.A.R. I
find two sons of James A. Latta of the Revolutionary War, Moses and Alexander Latta, moved west of the mountains at the beginning of the 19th century. In an early history of Ohio, printed about 1845, I find much credit given Judge Moses Latta in the early history of Morgan County. I think that Alexander was my great grandfather, and the one killed and that Moses Latta, living some distance away, did not know that my grandfather was saved, and believed that his brother and all the family were wiped out." "I think that my grandfather must have known something of his father, because he named one of his sons, Henderson Alexander Latta."
The following notes are about the grandchildren of Mary Elizabeth Latta White, daughter of a Barton Latta. They were the children of Sarah J. White, who married Charles W. Cargin. Sent me by Richard R. Latta.
Gilbert H. Cargin, Sergeant, was leading his men of Co. D, Machine gun battalion of the
7th Division (New York), at the offensive of the Argenne and was dreadfully wounded there and lay for weeks in a hospital. Then invalided home to the States, and was confined in one hospital after another. He was dreadfully scarred and the elbow of one arm was very badly injured. He has been getting better, but unable to follow his work as railroad fireman. He is now farming.
News report. Word of the death of Private Arthur Cargin had
been received by his father at Stalker, Pa. He enlisted for service in Mexico,
afterwards going to France. He was wounded at Roussey, France September 29, 1918
and died October 5, 1918, and buried in St. Seveir Cemetery, Rouen, France,
Section of the Seine.
George I. Cargin, private Co. D, 107th Inf. (Army serial #1,210,383). For extraordinary heroism in action near Roussey, France, September 29, 1918, during the operations against the Hindenburg Line, he with four others left shelter and went forward into an open field, under heavy shell and machine gun fire, succeeded into carrying back to our lines, two wounded comrades, one was his brother Arthur. A news item from Stalker, Pa. said that George Cargin left for New York City to be decorated by the Prince of Wales (now King Edward VIII). He was in the service for over a year, and wears the Distinguished Service Cross of this country.
