In 1740, only a few white families were scattered along the Hyco, the Eno, and the Haw Rivers in the area that became Orange County, North Carolina. ("Orange County 1752-1952")  In 1748 there were approximately 20 taxables, but by 1751...settlers were "flocking" in, mostly from Pennsylvania.  In 1755 we find James Latta among early Orange County tax payers.

Petition:   "To the Right Honorable Earl of Granville, Viscount Carteret and Baron Carteret of Hawns in the County of Bedford in ye Kingdom of Great Brittan; one of the Lords of His Majestys Most Honorable Privy Council and Knight of the Most Nobel Order of the Garter, act. The Petition of His Majesties Most Dutiful & Loyal Subjects, Protestant Dissenters, and your Lordships most Dutiful Tenants, Inhabitants of Rowan County, an Infant Settlement on ye Back frontiers of the Province of North Carolina, on behalf of themselves and their brethren in ye joining frontier Counties of Anson and Orange, a few of whom are the subscribers."  The Petitioners go on to say, "We are originally your liege people. Mostly originally from the North of Ireland, trained and brought up under Presbyterian Church Government, and we and our forefathers have resided sometime in ye Northern Province of Pennsylvania, Jersey and New York, where we were exempted from paying, or supporting, any clergy save our own, and we come here encouraged by gracious proposals to Protestant Dissenters published in your Lordships name and by your agents, Mssr. Mosley & Halton, whereby we hoped to enjoy like freedom" (such as they had in Penn., Jersey and New York). They were complaining about being taxed to support the Church of England, when they were already supporting their own Protestant churches. They were petitioning to be relieved of such taxes. The petition was signed by John Latta and James Latta and many other Orange County residents. (copy in possession of Larry D Draughon; Branch 7 who states "This Petition was probably written before 1758, because one of the men mentioned in the Petition died in 1759 and another died in 1760 and John Earl Granville died in early 1763. At his death the powers of attorney to his agents in N.C. became void and there was no one authorized to sell any more of his lands.)
 

By 1799 we find James Latta, John Latta, and Thomas Latta.  Whether John and Thomas were his brother or his sons, we have not determined.  (See Note F for a connection of James Latta and Robert Davis to New Castle, Delaware)

287 ROBERT (3).

****Robert Wilson, born 1729; died 1806 in Orange County, North Carolina. He married Ann Latta 1757-1760 in Orange County, North Carolina. Ann Latta, born 1727; died 1820 in Orange County, North Carolina. She was the daughter of James Latta. Robert Wilson was probably a member of the early Wilson family in North Carolina as the names Robert and Caleb were in common use by Wilsons of 17th century NC. However Robert resided in Orange County among many people who had come to NC from the Philadelphia area in the period 1725 - 1750
Robert Wilson received a grant of land in Orange County, North Carolina of 228 acres, on July 30, 1760, filed in Book 12, page 57 of the Lord Granville Grants. An Archelius Wilson patented land on the same day adjacent Robert so it is likely that he was a brother. The file folder for Robert's grant in the North Carolina archives contains the survey of this land performed in the name of Ann Latty which provides the likely identity of his wife Ann. Robert died intestate however Robert's children are identified in her will.

Newsletter Story - Issue 46

Second Lieutenant Henry Clay Latta was "mortally wounded" and died on November 10, 1864 according to the "Morning Report" of General Hospital #4, Richmond, Virginia.  (See Exhibit I)  Notwithstanding, Exhibit II indicates that he was "killed, October 17, 1864."  Still, Exhibit III shows that "he died on or about November 10-12, 1864, of wounds."  Whenever Henry Clay Latta actually died, he was 22 years old as can be determined by Exhibit IV - showing that he was 19 when he volunteered for service on February 1, 1862, as a "private."

Henry Clay Latta (or Henry C. Latta or H. C. Lata, as his name alternately appears in various Confederate States of America (CSA) documents, was 5'10" tall, single, and a farmer when he volunteered.  His likeness is shown in Photograph A.  According to a secondary source, David K. Latta, there were 15 members of Latta Branch 7 who served in the CSA, but Henry Clay Latta is the only one known to have an existing photo.  Underneath Photograph A is this citation: "In memory/Second Lieutenant/Henry C. Latta."  The photo (taken March 28, 2007) is of a memorial paving brick in the then newly constructed walkway in the Confederate Section of Oakwood Cemetery, located in Raleigh, North Carolina.  It is highly appropriate for Henry Clay Latta to be recognized in this manner since it is not known where he is buried though it appears certain that he died in a Richmond, Virginia hospital (Exhibit 1).  Moreover, even though North Carolina was the last state to join the CSA, it provided more troops than any other state, with correspondingly more causalities.

While not a casualty of the war per se, Henry Clay Latta's older brother, Simpson Latta, was discharged on May 26, 1862 for reasons of "debilities and peritonitis chronic," according to a book entitled "The Bloody Sixth" The Sixth North Carolina Regiment Confederate States of America."  This history was written by Richard W. Iobst, with "Roster of the Troops" by Louis H. Manaris (see p. 311 for Simpson Latta).  In this book, there is a narrative about the Reactivated Regiment written by Wade Lucas.  One interesting aspect about Simpson's name is that the "family list" of children shows his name to be "G. Simpson" but his military record shows his name to be "Simpson J. Latta," and as being a part of the 6th NC Infantry, as does also the book above.  The same "family list" of children also includes the name of Henry Clay Latta, Simpson's younger brother.  "The Bloody Sixth" book provides the following information about Simpson Latta: born in Orange County, NC, where he resided as a farmer and enlisted as a private at age 22, on May 1, 1861.  It is likely that Simpson Latta influenced his brother to join the Cause, because Henry Clay Latta enlisted about 3 months before his brother's discharge.

Henry Clay Latta was born in Orange County, NC, but resided in Granville County, NC, when he joined the "Tar River Rebels" as a private in Company E.  The company was enlisted in Granville County in February-March, 1862.  It was mustered in at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, NC.  This is where Company E was assigned to the 46th Regiment, NC Troops.  The company functioned thereafter as a part of the 46th Regiment, and its exploits for the remainder of the war were reported as part of the regimental history (see Exhibit III). The 46th Regiment, NC Troops, Company E, was made of A. P. Hill's 3rd Corps, Henry Heth's Division, and John Cook's Brigade, which is where Henry Clay Latta was a part of the Battle of Hatchess Run on October 27, 1864, and where it was reported that he was "mortally wounded" as a 2nd Lieutenant. (See Exhibits I, II and III.)

While Henry Clay Latta was mustered in for duty as a private, he quickly rose through the ranks, being promoted to Corporal sometime prior to February 1, 1862 (see Exhibits III and IV, plus his "Roll of Honor" service card), and then promoted to Sergeant between November-December 1862 (Exhibits III and IV).  He was present or accounted for until wounded in the face on December 13, 1862 in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where Henry Clay Latta "acted with distinguished gallantry and refused to leave the field" (see Exhibit III, as well as Exhibits V, VI and VII. Note: this latter Exhibit VII shows the name to be "Lattie," but all other facts are consistent with the primary documents for Henry Clay Latta.)  He was able to return to duty in January-February, 1863.  Exhibit III shows that Henry Clay Latta was appointed 2nd Lieutenant on March 30, 1863, however other documents show that he was "elected" (see Exhibit VIII) or "promoted" (see Exhibit IX) on February 11, 1863.  Both of these exhibits show the promotion to 2nd Lieutenant on February 11, 1863 instead of the March 30, 1863 date shown on Exhibit III.  According to the records, Henry Clay Latta was present and accounted for until he was wounded again in action on June 15, 1864.  He returned to duty July-August 1864.  He was again present and accounted for until he was wounded in the back, likely the cause of his eventual death, at Burgess' Mill, Virginia, on October 27, 1864 (Exhibit III.)

Henry Clay Latta's father was named Henderson Latta.  While photograph B, date unknown, shows his likeness, Henderson Latta was born on June 20, 1811 in Orange County, NC.  He died on August 28,  1895 and was buried in Stem, NC, located in Granville County.  Henderson Latta's will dated February 7, 1894 was probated by his youngest son, and Henry Clay Latta's youngest brother, Allen Latta.

As can be ascertained by the dates of the birth of Henderson Latta, he was 50 years old at the beginning of the war and lived through and until nearly 30 years after the War ended.  What he saw or did during this time is not known.  What is known is that he married Ann Rhew from Stem, North Carolina, on November 6, 1834 and they had 9 children.  Their names and year of birth are recorded as follows: Sarah Hopkins, 1836; G. Simpson (believed to be Simpson J.), 1836; Harrison R., 1840; Henry Clay, 1842; Mary June, 1846; Luena (or Lucinda), 1848; Louisa, 1848; Allen, 1850; Ann, about 1854.

Henry Clay Latta's youngest brother, Allen, was born February 26, 1850; and died on January 28, 1911.  His wife, Emily Sneed Ragland, was born on September 6, 1850 and died on March 28, 1911.  One might question why Allen did not serve alongside his brothers; however the best likely answer is that he was only 15 as the the war ended.

Allen Latta was married in 1873 and had 12 children during the next 18 years.  He and his wife had their first child on July 4, 1875 and named him Henry Clay Latta, almost surely in memory of his older brother who died during the war. The names and birth dates of Allen's children are recorded as follows (Photograph C:) Henry Clay, July 4, 1875; Annie Elizabeth, June 1, 1876; Alice Blanche, June 1, 1877; Joseph Lucious, 1878; Alex Allen, October 24, 1879; Thomas, possibly 1880; John Irvin, June 3, 1881; Eunice Standgrove, July 22, 1883; Hazel Clyde, October 31, 1884; Mary Emma, September 19, 1887; Viola Henderson, December 21, 1891; Wade Simpson, about 1893. 

The death dates are unknown for all of the preceding except for Alex Allen Latta (known as A. A. Latta), the grandfather of E. Michael Latta and great grandfather of Stanley M. Latat (the authors of this article).  A.A. lived with his oldest son, Carlyle Alexander Latta and his wife Anna Blanche Gordon Latta during the last 12 years of his life.  A. A. Latta died on March 12, 1962 and is buried next to his wife Pauline Overton at Corinth Baptist Church in Granville County, NC.  During the marriage of A. A. and Pauline Latta, they had ten children.

In summary, it appears from all accounts that Henry Clay Latta was a soldier's solider - in volunteering for duty and in doing his duty.  Wounded at least three times and placed on the Confederate Roll of Honor, with recognition for "outstanding men who displayed courage and good conduct on the field of battle," were likely reasons why he rose through the ranks so quickly during the 2.5 year span of service.  While a 2nd Lieutenant, he was paid $80 a month, and Exhibit X shows his legible signature along with his troop information.  For his efforts, he lost his life; however at the cost of his life, Henry Clay Latta protected the South and his family - both that he surely loved.

This article was prepared by E. Michael Latta and his son, Stanley M. Latta, based upon family records as well as microfilm copies of actual records residing in the North Carolina State Archives.  both men are life members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and also of the Military Order of the Stars and Bars.  If errors or omissions are found, please contact stanlatta@usa.com.

    35 RALPH JONES (5) LATTA


    Renor (4) Thomas J. (3) Solomon (2) Thomas (1). Born October 15, 1909 at Little River Township, Orange Co., NC; d. November 1985 at Mebane, Alamance Co., NC (both dates from SS Index); m. Lake Virginia Prytle, daughter of Charles Summers Pyrtle and Grace Ellen Ivey Pyrtle, on April 19, 1930. She was born May 6,1912 and died May 24, 1968.  They are both buried in the Alamance Memorial Park Cemetery, Burlington, Alamance County, North Carolina.  In the book "Like A Family, the Making of a Southern Cotton Mill World", page 258 discusses recreation. It notes "If anything outside the mill dictated worker's times of recreation, it was radio programming. In 1930, workers in Gastonia petitioned for a change in hours. They wanted to start work fifteen minutes earlier so that they could get home before 6:00 p.m., when "Amos and Andy" came on the radio. The mill agreed. Ralph Latta, who lived in Piedmont Heights, also scheduled his time around "Amos and Andy." He used to leave his brother's house to walk to his girlfriend's just as the show came on. "If it was summertime, or a lot of times in wintertime, because people played their radios pretty loud, I could listen to that all the way. They said that the world was nearer a standstill during that thirty minutes than any other thirty minutes during the twenty-four hours". Page 272 discusses the "company's plan to get more work out of somebody for the same money". It notes " Elsewhere, though, workers did protest. Ralph Latta grew up in Orange County, just east of Alamance, and spent his life working in textile mills. One day while Latta was working in Piedmont Heights, a time study man came down from Greensboro. "He had a big piece of paper, and he drawed off on there that out of eight hours it'd take you so long to do this, so long to do that, so long to do something else, so long to go to the restroom, so long to eat. After he did that, somebody said, "You draw a picture of an airplane on a piece of paper and make it fly off, then we'll take it. Until you do, we don't. You can figure things like that out on a piece of paper, but they just don't pan out." On page 273, it discusses the church, and notes "On September 13, 1927, a Sunday school class from Pomona visited the Piedmont Heights group, and the two classes held a joint meeting. At the close of the meeting, the group prepared to leave, lamenting the fact that Piedmont Heights had no preacher. One member, Grace Prytle, reminded them that among their visitors was a young Sunday school teacher, George Washington Swinney, who had recently experienced a call to the ministry. The group invited him to speak. Swinney later told Grace Prytle's son-in-law, Ralph Latta, that he "could have went through the floor."

    272 GEORGE GRAY (7) LATTA


    William Scarlett (6) William P. (5) William S. (4) James (3) Robert (2) Thomas (1). b. December 8, 1897, a member of the freemasonry Grand Lodge of Arkansas at Hot Springs, where he served as past grand commander.

    Captain George G. Latta, Hot Springs, Ark., and Fannie Brownlow, Knoxville, Tenn., were married in St. John's Church in the latter city, Feb. 29, 1876; an elaborate account of the wedding is provided in this issue. She was a daughter of the notorious William G. Brownlow of Tennessee. 

    The Marriage of Mr. GEORGE G. LATTA to Miss BROWNLOW, of Knoxville.

    Capt. George G. Latta, son of Mr. W. S. Latta, of Cartersville was married in Knoxville, Tenn., to Miss Fannie G. Brownlow of the latter city. The EXPRESS makes its acknowledgements for the usual printers fee and joins many others in wishing them a long and happy life. We append a description of the ceremonies taken from the Knoxville Chronicle of the 1st instant.

    St. John’s Church was filled to its utmost capacity last night with the elite of the city to witness the nuptials of Capt. George G. Latta, of Hot Springs, Arkansas, and Miss Fannie Brownlow of this city. For a week all who were fortunate enough to secure “cards” have been awaiting the evening of the 29th, not a little impatient at the tardy pace of time. The Church presented an attractive appearance, the chancel having been decorated with no small degree of taste and beauty; wreaths were suspended from the pillars in a most artistic manner, and at their intersection was hung a marriage bell, the clapper consisting of a single calla lily. Above the bell, on a rope which it was suspended was the monogram L. B. in white flowers and delicate green leaves. Promptly at 8 ½ o’clock the bridal party entered the church while the wedding march was performed by Mr. Hodgson in his usual excellent style. All being in readiness the “twain was made one” by the beautiful and impressive ceremony of the Episcopal Church, Rev. Mr. Duncan officiating.

    The bride was arrayed in a dress of white brocaded satin, garnished with lace and lily-of-the-valley fringe, a bridal veil caught at the left side of the head with a delicate spray of lilies of the valley, completed a combination well fitted to enhance [what] nature has unsparingly bestowed. The groom was attired in the conventional suit of black. The attendants were Mr. Sam McKinney and Miss Annie Brownlow, Mr. W. M. Baxter, of Chattanooga, and Miss Latta, sister of the groom. The dresses of the bridesmaids bore no mark of dissimilarity, and were a subtle mixture of white terletan (sic) and satin.

    At the conclusion of the ceremony, the more intimate and still more fortunate friends repaired to the residence of H. M. Aiken, Esq., brother-in-law of the bride, where the happy couple received many and heartfelt congratulations, and where, too, the inner man was remembered in a manner satisfactory to the most fastidious epicures. Mr. and Mrs. Aiken have the happy faculty of making their guests feel at home.  We heard but one expression in reference to the entertainment, and that was that it was perfectly pleasant and agreeable to all not a single discord to mar the general harmony.

    The presents received were numerous and elegant loudly bespeaking the high esteem in which the bride is held by her many friends.

    Among the presents we noticed an elegant silver water service from one of Knoxville's popular young men, a silver coffee urn from a gentleman in Middle Tennessee, a fine lace handkerchief, a silver toilet stand, silver pickle stand, two bronze vases, two silver jewelry cases, a half dozen silver salt stands, a fine silver soup ladle, one lunch basket, a silver butter stand, one silver butter knife and sugar spoon, a silver flower stand, shawl straps, lambrequis, etc. etc.

    After enjoying genuine and uninterrupted pleasure for two hours, after 11 the guests took their leave, wishing the happy couple good-night with hearty congratulations.

    Mr. and Mrs. Latta will leave tomorrow for their future home in Little Rock, Arkansas, and will carry with them the good wishes of a host of friends in this community.

     

    Local attorney George G. Latta built the house at 230 Whittington before 1887 and lived in it until his death in 1910. A Confederate veteran who had enlisted at the age of 13, Latta moved from North Carolina to Arkadelphia, Arkansas, in 1870. After living for a time in Montgomery County, he moved to Hot Springs in 1873. He served as Hot Springs. He was a prosecuting attorney and was co-owner of several bathhouses, including the Ozark.  - Hot Springs Historical Society.
