Branch No. 4


Born No. of Ireland January 11, 1730 or 1716? May have come to America in 17 , before 17 , as his son James then came here. Three or four of his sons came about the time of the Revolutionary War. He settled at Wallkill, N.Y. Frank F. Latta, family 22, said there was a tradition in his family that several Latta brothers and their sons ran a flouring mill at Donegal and Londonderry, Ireland. They owned a couple of small schooners and delivered the flour around the British Isles and sometimes across the channel to the continent. About the middle of the 18th century they decided to bring a ship load of flour to America. Five brothers and a small crew brought the flour to the Atlantic coast where it was disposed of. Three of the brothers stated here. A few years later five more brothers, and probably cousins, came to America to stay. "The above, in substance, is confirmed by Emmet G. Latta, family 50, who wrote a short history of this branch. The descendants of Samuel say there were four or five brothers. The descendants of 1 James knew the names of only two brothers, James and Samuel. The descendants of Samuel say there were four or five brothers. The descendants of Moses knew only that he came from the North of Ireland with two brothers, James and Samuel. Moses died when his children were young: they knew but little about him. The descendants of James and Samuel have always known each other, but had no knowledge of Moses or any other brothers, but Emmit G. Latta found some of the descendants of Moses. He thought that one or two generations were skipped between 1 James and 2 James. As there is a question as to the date of birth of 1 James, some members of branch No. 3 believe that 1 James must have been born about 1716, which would make him 32 years of age when his son, 2 James was born. They think that 1 James was of branch No. 3, and that he was born between 3 Moses and 4 Samuel, of branch No. 3. Members of branch No. 3 lived at Wallkill, N.Y. about the time of 1 James, above, branch No. 4. See my Book of Possible Connections for further proof that the two branches should be united. All that is needed is the missing link. Children:

July 3, 1807. He came to America as early as 177. The name of James Latta appears as some of twelve on the "Committee of Safety and Observation" May 8, 1775, at New Windsor, Orange Co., N.Y. Precinct of Hanover. Reference: History of Orange Co., N.Y. by Ruttenburg & Clark, Vol. 1, pp. 65, 235, 376. Dry goods merchant. He lived at Wallkill, N.Y. up to 1778, then went to New Windsor, N.Y. Was in the same business until the close of the Revolutionary war. In 1789 he bought 1200 acres of wild land of Phelps & Gorham, above five miles west of Geneva, near Seneca, N.Y. and became a pioneer. He had a large farm, and lived there until the death of his wife, July 3, 1807. In 1808 he sold out and lived with his son, John, at Lewiston, N.Y. until his death November 13, 1818.

It is thought that the following is 2 James (2) Latta. Taken from N.Y. Gen. & Bio.

Record, p. 306, Par. 2.

"The Paymaster General was at Philadelphia, and the N.Y. Land Office was in New York City after the peace, and Michael Connelly, breveted Captain, in 1783, served as Regimental Agent for some years after the disbanding of the army. The day Washington entered New York City from Harlem, while Carlton and the British embarked from the Battery (November 25, 1783), Capt. Connelly established himself in business at 21 (Water St.?) opposite the Coffee House Bridge, where he, Robert Nesbit, and some other officers (two appears to have been James Latta, of New Windsor, and Pierre Reginer de Roussy), established a commission and vendue business, reminding the public in their advertisements of their services in the late war."


James (1). Born No. of Ireland in 1756; d. near Geneva, N.Y. August 19, 1820; m. Elizabeth Shultz of Newburg, N.Y. May 9, 1786, daughter of Isaac Shultz.

They settled at New Windsor, N.Y. and soon removed to Geneva, N.Y. where he bought 1,000 acres of wild land, and made one of the best farms in the state, and lived on it until his death. He probably followed his brother Moses, to that place, and was followed by his brother, James, with his family in September, 1789. Samuel and wife have tombstones at No. 9, Church, Stanley, N.Y. Either he, or Samuel, son of 2 James Latta, was the founder of the church. All dates taken from the family Bible. For Will of Samuel Latta see my Loose Leaf Book of Wills. Children:

James (1). Born in No. of Ireland in 1760; d. at Montgomery, N.Y. in 1790; m. Elizabeth Jeaman of Montgomery about 1780. Came to America with two brothers, James and Samuel, as early as 1772. Private in 2d Reg. N.Y. Art. in the Revolutionary War, under Capt. Thomas Theo Bliss, Col. John Lamb and Maj. Sebastian Bauman. See "New York in the Revolution," by James A. Roberts, pp. 61-64. The muster rolls are recorded as "Maj. Brown's Detachment," and is mentioned in "gen. Arnold's Regiment." The fact that the "Green Mountain Boys," under Gen. Ethan Allen, were at Quebec in 1776, that this detachment was there in 1776, confirms the belief that soldiers of its rolls were a part of this historic branch. It rads, "The Line-Artillery, 2d Reg." The name of Moses Latta is in the list. Mason by trade. He owned the land where Geneva now stands, and built the first house there. He did not live to bring his family there. Three children:

James (2) James (1). Born at Wallkill, N.Y. April 14, 1776; d. at Charlotte (Rochester), N.Y. February 4, 1827; m. twice. Name of first wife, Mary ____, unknown, by whom he had one daughter, who died young. Second wife: Lydia Arnold (daughter of Daniel and Esther Fox Arnold) at Geneva, N.Y. May 12, 1806 and soon after settled at Charlotte (now Rochester), N.Y. She was born at East Haddam, Conn. January 19, 1786, and died at Charlotte November 26, 1866. (For the ancestry of Lydia Arnold, and her children, through two of the "Mayflower" pilgrims, and back of them through William the Conqueror, Charlemagne, Alfred the Great, the Vikings, and the present Royal family of England, and her relationship to six presidents, Adams (father and son), Taylor, Grant, Taft and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, see Note of last page of this branch, No. 4. Related also to King Robert Bruce of Scotland. In the War of 1812, a British sentinel paced up and down the hall one night in the home of Samuel and Lydia Arnold Latta, and she was taken with a friend to the guard house by a British soldier. The story of Guernsey & Bushnell was seized, and a receipt was given George C. Latta, the clerk, who thought it was a one sided business deal. The day after their marriage they went to the village (now Rochester) at the mouth of the river, and erected a house the S.E. corner of Broadway, now Lake Ave. and Latta Road. A portion of the house in 1934 was standing there. They were grantors of land in 1811 and 1812 and Samuel was grantee of land in Monroe Co. in 1809. This land extended along the Latta Road from Samuel Latta's home to the Port of Rochester. At the foot of this street on the Genesee River was the boat landing known as Latta's Landing.

After the death of Samuel Lydia married John Beals, of Grace Tp.

History of Monroe Co., N.Y. p. 204, pub. 1877: "The village of Charlotte is located near the mouth of Genesee River, in the town of Greece. The most prominent of the first settlers was Samuel Latta, who came from Geneva, N.Y. in 1796, as agent for Phelps & Gorham in the sale of lands. He was appointed the first Collector of the Port of Genesee by President Jefferson, January 17, 1808. He was one of the master spirts for Charlotte Harbor." The original appointment as Collector is in the possession of Mrs. Kata Kinner, daughter of Esther Agnes Latta Deyo, daughter of Samuel Latta. Child by first wife:

This is one of 48 different branches of the Latta family compiled and written by Robert H. Latta, attorney at law, Denver, Colorado. This is branch No. 4. I was maternally aided in this branch by Emmit G. Latta of Syracuse, N.Y. family 50. And aided to a lesser extent by various other persons too numerous to mention.

See family No. 1, and next age for possible connection with branch No. 3.

I think that I have discovered the brother of I James (1) Latta of his branch (No. 4), it is in branch No. 3. Which commences as follows:

2 ____ (1) LATTA,

Born in or near Londonderry, Ireland. Had a number of children. Two were Samuel and Moses. I have a short history of Samuel but no history of Moses. I think that Moses belongs to branch No. 3 (see note at the end of this sheet.)


____ (1). Born in or near Londonderry, Ireland; m. MARY McCOBB in Ireland. At least five children, Samuel and James lived near Geneseo, N.Y. William married Elizabeth Rankin and lived and settled in Pa. Mary married Robert Glenn. This is branch No. 3. Now for the connection: In a book entitled "Calendar of Wills," on file in the office of Clerk and Recorder of Court of Appeals, of County Clerk, Albany, N.Y. and Secretary of State, 1626-1836, I find the following: "McCOBB, James of Handover Prect., Ulster Co. Merchant. Wife Jane. Daughters Elizabeth, MARY, and Jane. James McClaghry, Jr. Father William McCOBB in Ireland. Samuel son John Finley. George son of Alexander Trimble. James Latta, Trustees JAMES WILKINS and Thomas Beatty of the NEW WALKILL meeting house. Father-in-law Patrick McClaghry. Real and Personal estate. Executors the wife, GEORGE CLINTON, and James Buckley. Witnesses Robert McCuchen, Andrew Willson and James McClaughry, yeomen. "This book gives a number of Wills, of which this Will is No. 1181. It also says "(M73) 1774, June 23, September


In N.Y. Historical Society, Vol. 8, p. 204, abstract of Wills, "James NcCobb, Handover, Ulster Co. leaves to James Latta L20, Moses Latta L5. These were sons of Samuel and Mary McCOBB Latta, mentioned above. I do not see why MOSES LATTA was not mentioned in the "Calendar of Wills".

In Branch No. 4, 2 JAMES (2) LATTA settled at Walkill, N.Y. as early as 1772, and married there in 1`773. His two brothers were Samuel and Moses. He had a son William, and a daughter Mary. These names are all found in branch No. 3, above, as the children of Samuel and Mary McCOBB Latta.

When Mary, daughter of James 92) Latta, in branch 4, sought refuge in Geneseo, N.Y. during the War of 1812, when the British burned them out, what was more natural than she went to her relatives. In branch No. 3, the children of Samuel and Mary McCOBB Latta lived there or near there, at the same time.

GEORGE CLINTON of the Will was evidently a trusted friend of James McCOBB as he made George Clinton one of his executors. In branch No. 4 James (2) Latta had a warm friend in GEORGE CLINTON, because he named a son after him. These are more than co-incidences. See also loose-leaf black covered book, entitled "Possible Connection," for these and other branches.

See also family No. 1, this branch.


The record of Lydia Arnold Latta, wife of Samuel Latta, branch No. 4, family 5, was furnished me by Mrs. Walter I. Fuller, grand-daughter of Esther Agnes Latta Deco, who was the daughter of Samuel and Lydia Arnold Latta. Except when otherwise stated it was taken from the Denver Post Sunday Magazine section, December 10 & 17, 1933.

Richard Warren was a well-to-do merchant of Greenwich, England, near London. He joined the Pilgrims when they came: from Leyden, Holland, to while the "Mayflower" was outfitting at Plymouth, England. He married Elizabeth ____ in England. She came to join him in the "Ann" with their five daughters. Their two sons were born in America. Richard was the only one whose name was written "Mr." in the original records. Their children were: (1) Mary, who died after September 13, 1678. In 1628-1629 she had married Robert Barnett. Their children were Benjamin, Rebecca, Mary, Sarah, Joseph, Elizabeth, Mercy and Lydia. (1) Ann married Thomas Little, April 19, 1633. Children Ruth, Hannah, Patience, Isaac, Mercy, Ephraim, Thomas and Samuel. (3) Sarah married John Cooke. (4) Elizabeth married Richard Church. Children: Joseph, Elizabeth, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Caleb, Charles, Priscilla, Abigail, Richard, Sarah, Lydia, Deborah, Mary. (5) Abigail, married Anthony Snow. (6) Nathaniel, married Sarah Walker. Children: Richard, Jabez, Sarah, Hope, Jane, Elizabeth, Alice, Mercy (b. February 20, 1657-1658, who married Jonathan Delano, ancestors of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt), Nathaniel, Mary, John and James. (7) Joseph married Priscilla France. Children: Mercy, Abigail, Joseph, Patience, Elizabeth and Benjamin.-- "Mayflower" Descendants and their marriages for two generations.

The name Warren was derived from the Manor of William, Earl Warren, fief of Warrenne. He was a Norman Baron of Dutch extraction. Was with William the Conqueror when he invaded England in 1066 and fought at the battle of Hastings. He was rewarded with riches shorn from the Saxons. Then King Richard left to visit Normandy, Earl Warren was appointed one of two guardians of the kingdom. From this ancestry, the Warrens are followed down through earls, knights and commoners, to America. Richard Warren was the first to settle in America. -- "Descendants of George Wheeler and John Warren."

Richard Warren, London haberdasher, licensed to marry Elizabeth Evans, of St. Mildred Poultry, January 1, 1592-1593 at St. Leonard's Shoreditch. Another Richard Warren married Margery Jordon, September 1, 1606, at St. Martin's in-the-Field. It is supposed that Richard the Pilgrim could have been one of these. -- "English Ancestry and Homes of Pilgrim Fathers," by Charles E. Banks, member of Massachusetts Historical Society."

He could not have married Margery Jordon, as she married a Richard Warren 14 years after Elizabeth Evans married a Richard Warren. And at that time the Pilgrim's wife, Elizabeth, was living.

1. Lieut. JONATHAN DELANO, son of Phillippe de la Noye, married Mercy Warren, daughter of Nathaniel Warren, son of Richard Warren. Jonathan fought in the first war on this continent, the Piquot War 1646. Jonathan Delano and Mercy Warren were distantly related. They were married at Plymouth, Mass. in 1678. The spelling of De la Noye was changed in Delano. "The descendants of Phillippe de la Noye of Plymouth have the satisfaction of tracing their ancestry to the old country for a dozen centuries. They have established their full right to bear the Arms of the Delano family, which could be of no better stock." -- Appleton's Encyclopedia of American Biography. Phillipee's grand parents were Huguenots driven from France, and they settled in Leyden, Holland. They joined there the English refugees from Scrooby, England and Phillippe came to America on the second ship, the "Fortune". Their son:

From RICHARD WARREN to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt showing relationship to Lydia Arnold Latta, wife of Samuel Latta, branch No. 4, family 5 and with Pres. Ulysses S. Grant.

1. Lieut. JONATHAN DELANO, son of Phillipee de la Noye, married Mercy Warren, daughter of Nathaniel Warren, son of Richard Warren. Jonathan Delano and Mercy Warren were distantly related. They were married at Plymouth, Mass. in 1678. The spelling of the name of De la Noye was changed to Delano. Phillippe came to America on the second ship, the "Fortune". Then followed their son:

2. THOMAS DELANO (1704). Then his son:

3. EPHRAIM DELANO (1735). Then his son:

4. WARREN DELANO (1779). Then his son:

5. WARREN DELANO, JR. (1809). Then is daughter:

6. SARAH DELANO (1854). Then her son:

7. FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT (1854). President United States. He descended one of the "Mayflower" passengers.

It is said that six Presidents descended from RICHARD WARREN: Adams (father and son), Zachery Taylor, Taft, Grant and Roosevelt. This makes them all related. Also related to Lydia Arnold Latta, wife of Samuel Latta, branch No. 4, family 5.


In an encyclopedia in the Genealogical Department, of the New York Public Library, it says: the name De la Noye was derived from the town of Lannoy, a few miles from Lillie, France, which was settled by Danish Vikings, in the Dark Ages, and which bore the ancient Roman name of "Almetum," Its Dukes were linked with Europe's greatest royalty. Phillippe de la Noye was a direct descendant of its first Duke, Hughes de Lannoy.

It is said that the ancestors of President Roosevelt (which applies to all the others related to Richard Warren) were Richard Plantagenet, William the Conqueror, Charlemagne, Alfred the Great. His ancestors in direct line goes back as far as Hulof, the first Viking Duke of the Normans, who invaded England about 860 A.D.: St. Arnoul, Charlemagne's ancestor, 611 A.D.; Gulph, Prince of the Scyrri, 476 A.D.; and Priam, King of France, 382 A.D.

The same Encyclopedia gave the Warren family six pedigrees, reaching clear back, into early Norman and English history. Charlemagne appears in both the family trees of Warren and Delano. This is where Mercy Warren and Lieut. Jonathan Delano were related.

Alfred the Great, England's Saxon King (849-900 A.D.) had a daughter named Elfthryfth who married Charlemagne's great, great grandson making Alfred a Warren-Delano-Roosevelt and the others descendants of Alfred. Richard Warren's blood was a blend of the Saxon King Alfred and the Norman William the Conqueror. Richard was the ancestor of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the others as old Phillippe de la Noye himself.

Richard Warren was a direct descendant through younger sons of Earls of Warren and Surrey in England. The first Earl of Warren married Gundred, the Conqueror's daughter. Since Gundred descended from Charlemagne, his blood flowed in Richard Warren's veins. Also since Gundred's grandmother many generations back had been Elftrhryth, daughter of Alfred the Great, Alfred was Richard Warren's direct ancestor. And Richard Warren, through his granddaughter, Mercy Warren, was Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt's ninth forebearer. And President U.S. Grant, through Mercy Warren was a descendant of Richard Warren. And Richard Warren was a direct ancestor of the other four presidents and of Lydia Arnold Latta and her children.

Ten generations back Phillippe de la Noye's direct ancestor was Arnulphe de Franchemont, founder of the line. Hughues de Lannoy's mother's family started with Rulof, the first Duke of the Normans, a Viking who came from the North and gained a foothold in Normandy in 860. The line includes Norman Duke Longswords, Richard the Fearless, Robert le Diable, and his son William the Conqueror. From William the Conqueror, De Lannoy's mother's line came on through Henry I of England and his daughter Matilda who married Geoffrey Plantagenet. Then came Henry VI who married Princess Agnes, who was a direct descendant of King Alfred the Great, Saxon King of England (849-901). Henry IV (1367-1413) who married Agnes, descended from Charlemagne, King of the Franks (768-814), and Emperor of the West (800-814) and first Emperor f the revived Roman Empire and was Charlemagne's 14th generation great grandson, which means he could trace farther back still six generations beyond Charlemagne to the latter's progemator, Pepin the Short, King of the Franks, (752-768); Charlemagne's father, Charles Martel, Frankish ruler, grandfather of Charlemagne (690-741), and St. Arnoul (611-A.D.) This line ran through Hugues Capet, King of France (987-996), and other Capetian Kings before arriving at Henry VI. Thus from St. Arnaul to Henry VI, 20 generations: from Henry VI and Agnes to Hugues de Lannoy (born in 1311), 5 generations; from Hugues de Lannoy to Phillippe de la Noye of the "Fortune", 9 generations; then to his son Lieut. Jonathan Delano who married Mercy Warren, granddaughter of Richard Warren of the "Mayflower".

RICHARD WARREN, fifteen generations between the Conquest and the "Mayflower". Richard Warren; Christopher Warren of Headborough, England; William Warren; Christopher Warren; John Warren, Jr. of Devonshire, England; John Warren; William Warren of Caunton, Nottinghamshire, England; Sir Lawrence Warren; John Warren, Sir Lawrence Warren whose father-in-law was ancestor of the Bulkley's of New England; Sir John Warren; Sir Edward Warren; John Warren; Sir John Warren; William Warren; Reginald Warren, 2d Earl of Warren and Surrey, who married Isabel Vermandois, Frances; William de Warren, 1st Earl of Warren and Surrey,, who married Gundred, daughter of William the Conqueror, shortly after the Conquest of England in 1066.

Now for Gundred's line back to Charlemagne:

William the Conqueror and Maud or Matilda, his queen; Baldwin V. King of Flanders; Baldwin IV; Arnulph II; Baldwin III; Arnulph the Great; Baldwin II. who married Elfthryfth, daughter of King Alfred the Great, King of Saxons. Seven generations of this line of Kings of Flanders.

Now for Queen Elfthryfth, who married Baldwin II:

Alfred the Great, King of England, born 848; Athelwulf, King of the West Saxons; Egbert, King of the West Saxons; Eofa; Eoppa; Inglid; Cenred; Crowald; Cuthwin; Ceawlin; Cynric, founder of the West Saxon Kingdom or Wessex--a Viking Chief who landed in England in 508. His progenitors are not known. Twelve generations of Saxon Kings to the beginning of the line. Forty-six generations from the six presidents of the United States, and Lydia Arnold Latta to Cardic.

Now for Baldwin II back through Charlemagne:

Baldwin I and his wife Judith (1058-1118). He was King of Jerusalem, and brother of Godefroy de Boullion; Charles the Bald, Judith's father, Holy Roman Emperor and King of the West Franks; Louis I, surnamed "The Pious"; Charlemagne, 1st Emperor of the Holy roman Empire born in 742; his father, Pepin III or Pippen the Short, King of the Franks (752-768); Charles Martel, Frankish King (grandfather of Charlemagne) who defeated the Turks at Tours, and saved the World from Mohammedamism; Pepin II, his mother was Beggs, who married Adalgiselus; Pipin I, the founder of the line. Ninth generation in line of Holy Roman Emperors. These ancient families being royal they kept track of the family trees.

Ancestry of ISABELE de VERMANDOIS, daughter of Prince Hugh Magnus, County of Vermandois, second son of Henry I. King of France (Hugh the Great, Duke of France and Burgandy) who married Adelheid, who descended from Alfred the Great. His mother was Anna, daughter of Jaroslaus, the Czar of Russia and his wife Engerherds, daughter of Pleus, the Bald, King of Norway.

The Danes had established themselves on the northern part of France about 911 or 912. One Hrolf, Rolf or Rollo, a Dane who had harassed both England and France, compelled the French King, Charles the simple, (a descendant of Charlemagne) to purchase peace by the cession of Normandy. He also confirmed Rollo's title as Duke. He thus became the first Duke of Normandy. He died 927. His son, WILLIAM LONGSWORDS, reigned 15 years and died 942. His son, RICHARD I, reigned 945-996, married Anna, daughter of Hugh the Great of France. His son, RICHARD II, reigned 996-1026. His son, RICHARD III, reigned 1026-1027, married Adela, daughter of Robert II, King of France. They had one daughter, Alice. He is supposed to have been poisoned by his brother, ROBERT LE DIABLE, who succeeded him. After the death of Richard, Adela married Baldwin V, Count of Flanders, by whom she had Matilda who married William the Conqueror, ROBERT I, (Le Diable) ruled 1027-1035. He had by Arletta, the daughter of a tanner of Falaise, a son. Preparing to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, he presented his son, WILLIAM, then about 7 years old, to his nobles as his heir, and swore them to protect his interests. Robert died on that journey and his son succeeded him to the dukedom as WILLIAM II, the seventh Duke of Normandy, later to be known as WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR. Edward the Confessor, King of England, was the last of the line of Alfred. He had no son. Edward and William were second cousins.
