It is stated that all of the Cabe girls married men who owned merchant mills. Thus, John and Joseph Latta would have owned a merchant mill.

12 MARY (2) b. September 24, 1794. {No History} There is a "Mary Howard" who married James W. Durham Sept. 15, 1849; Witness: John Latta. Could this be Mary Latta?

Land records of Orange Co., NC indicate that on 10 Aug 1778 Stephen Wilson entered a claim to 150 acres of land lying in Orange Co., on the west side of the Little River. Book III, page 142, Stephen Wilson, a weaver, from John Latta, a taylor, ___232, 1786, for L80 specie, 181 acres on Little River, granted by deed July 21, 1784. Also 235 acres adjoining. Also a tract, (repeats), Witnesses James Latta, James Latta, Jr. Recorded Aug. Court 1786. Stephen Wilson was married to Sarah Elizabeth Latta and they had three children, Mary Wilson, b. abt. 1771, Anne Wilson, born abt. 1774, and John Wilson, born abt. 1779. Is this Sarah Elizabeth Latta a sister to John Latta, head of this branch?

                                            2 THOMAS (2) LATTA


John (1). b. in Orange Co., N.C. October 3, 1767; d. 1841; buried in the New Hope Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Married Elizabeth Hastings, daughter of Joseph Hastings and Susannah HOLLOWAY, in Orange Co., N.C. October 25, 1791. Witness John Latta. She was born August 7, 1776. Lived at Hillsborough, N.C. ""Among those who made improvements in the Manor-of-Maske, prior to January 18, 1741, and took up Warrants for land between 1765 and 1775, were Thomas Latta; 200 acres in 1761, and 350 acres in October, 1774. This land was called 'Rapho', a name directly traceable to Ireland." 1850 Census - Latta, Elizabeth, 73, Elizabeth, 45, Eleanor, 43, Jane, 40, Arena, 38, Amelia, 36, Rachel, 34, Fanny, 24, and John, 36, farmer (looks like John and Amelia were twins).

daughters: Thomas Latta b. 1818. James Webb b. 1820. William Baskett. Joseph Hastings. The daughters died young. George A. Durham, son of James Webb Durham, b. July 29, 1856; m. Cecelia E.

16 MARY (3) b. September 22, 1800; m. George Long. October 28, 1829. 4 sons, 1 daughter. George Long, this foster son of William Craige evidently settled west of the Craig lands and in the neighborhood, and on the same land now owned by his descendants, and where some of the Long's still live. I do not know whom he married, nor how many children he had; but he had a son by the name of "George", who married Isabel Craig, a daughter of the aforesaid John Craig - son of William. The children of the union were: Anderson, Thomas and "George". This last named George married a Miss Latta, and their sons were Thomas, Robert, John and James D. The last named (James) still lives on the original lands, and perpetuates the name, and is a stance Presbyterian. This is the origin of the Long's in Orange County, N.C.

He was a prosperous merchant there and an Elder in the Fayetteville First Presbyterian Church, February 18, 1844. He went with his son, John Robert Latta, to Wilmington, N.C. in 1845. A more handful formed the original membership of the Wilmington Second Presbyterian Church. The record says conspicuous among them were John C. Latta and John R. Latta.  {"In Fayetteville he made an assignment of a business interest in trust to his cousin,  William Scarlett Latta". On this statement (1996 Note: I have know idea where it came from) this family was moved from branch No.15 to Branch No. 7, by Robert H Latta in the 1930's. But was he a 1st cousin or 2nd 3rd 4th ?.Also I have seen even today people of the same surname call each other cousin and not know if they are. This family seems to fit in this branch and so it will remain until I or some other finds a record that will prove it should be removed.}

And also had asthma, making it hard for her to breathe properly. Evon and Vern always tried to keep her from getting colds or flu, but it was difficult in the hard cold winters of Iowa. She died at the age of 36. Notes for ARTHUR VERNON HOBSON: The family moved to Iowa from Indiana in 1912, via train.

The farm was sold to Fred Cummins after Vern's death. After he and Mable married, they farmed the George K. Hobson farm in Morgan county, until their move to Iowa in 1912. Arthur butchered and cut meat for Uncle Arthur Allen and Mable helped Aunt Sadie Wrightsman cook at the store. A 1910 fire had leveled the town of New Providence, so the stores were new when they arrived in 1912. Aunt Susan's farm was the farm that Evon grew up on and Vern lived on until his death in 1960, down the road from the Rubottom farm, on County D65. Went to the Gasburg School, and a couple of years at Monrovia HS. His step brother had a grocery, meat market, cafe in New Providence and Vern and Mable worked for them the first year in Iowa. The second year they farmed, then Aunt Susan (widow of John, George K.'s oldest brother) put Vern on the farm south of town which was home until 1960.

Children: Ronald. Notes for JESSE BERNIECE LATTA: No Fooling...Jessie McCracken turns 100 by Scott W. L. Daravanis...It was April 1 and the residents of Miller's Merry Manor in Mooresville were laughing, and singing, and having a grand ole time. It wasn't because someone got fooled by the "your shoe's untied" trick. They were celebrating the 100th birthday of their friend, Jessie McCracken. Nearly 75 family members representing five generations came from all over Indiana and Ohio to celebrate the historic day, even Jessie's 96-year-old "kid" sister. "I've had a real good birthday," Jessie said. "I've been going full speed ever since I got up this morning." Born Jessie Latta in 1893, she grew up in the Monrovia area and attended a one-room schoolhouse in Gasburg. In 1920, she married Bonnie Phillip McCracken, the brother of former Indiana University basketball coach Branch McCracken. Up until a couple of years ago, she lived on the McCracken family farm next to the current Monrovia High School. She said she is still a big Hoosier basketball fan, but she doesn't get to follow them much anymore. Because her hearing isn't as good as it used to be, she has to turn up the volume on the radio or television louder than normal and that bothers the other residents. Over 150 residents joined the family in a 100th birthday party Thursday afternoon. Jessie was showered with kisses, cards, balloons and flowers while the Mooresville Kitchen Band serenaded her for nearly an hour. "I've had a very happy day, " Jessie said. "I got a lot of phone calls before I got here." Jessie wouldn't say what she is going to do for an encore, on her 200th birthday. Obituary: Jessie B.

1930'S NOTES:

On April 24, 1936 Hugh Scarlett, Attorney at Law, Durhan, N.C. branch 15, writes that
"seems that Thomas Latta (branch No. 15) was the first, or one of the first, of that name that came over here from Ireland. I think that a brother, maybe James, came with him. I went up to Orange Co. at about 12 miles to see the old home place of Thomas Latta. I think the place was settled by Thomas Latta somewhere about 10 or 15 years before the Revolutionary War, may be more. (In the Occonneechee Mountains in Orange Co.) This place is situated in a section known as Buck Quarter, rough and ragged. Tradition says that Thomas Latta could not speak English and could not be understood only when he cursed and when he did he could be heard from one end of the Valley to the other. It may be James was the brother of Thomas, or may be the son of Thomas. I will let you work that out. At St. Mary's grave Yard, in orange Co. there are several stones marking the graves. These stones of red sand, and are of the same texture and as far as I can tell, just like the ones that served as door steps to the kitchen of Thomas Latta. Written on these stones in the grave yard is the following (see branch No. 15): John Latta, Sr. born 1734 died 1824. John Latta Jr. born 1779 died 1818. Joseph Latta born 1784 died 1824. These graves are directly behind the foundation of the old English Church." The above John Latta is 1 John 91) Latta, branch 15, and the other two are his sons.
On July 20, 1936, Rev. Allen H. Godbey of Durham, N.C. (not related to the Latta
family), Archaeologist and Orientalist, wrote that James Latta was a farmer there in 1753, may be earlier. The entry in the first deed book in Hillsboro, N.C. is to James Latta of Orange Co. a planter of the Province of N.C. a grant of land from John, Earl Granville next to Captain Michael Synnott. Synnott got a huge grant from Earl Granville but finding himself in a sudden pinch, he said half that land, the deed stating "its the land on which James Latta is now living." This is in the fall. Early in the Spring he gets his own grant on the other side of Captain Synnott. My guess is that he was Captain Synnott's son-in-law, but there are no records. But following the said land it was only "Two Moves" to find that Latta -- St. Mary's grave yard is on the end of it. "Nobody here knew that St. Mary's grave yard was on James Latta's land till I showed it up." Owing to the destruction of all records by Cornwallis, there is a gap of 33 years in Latta. Not another deed for Latta after 1753, till 1786.

64 acres on south side of the fork of Little River, 250 acres adjoining said tract and the lands of James Fausett and John Kelly. Witnesses Robert Davis, James Davis, Thomas Latta, Jurat. Recorded July Court, 1787. Observe, that in the old Scotch or Highland deeds any land deal is not between two independent individuals, but between two families or Clans. He and relatives of the two parties must be the witnesses.
Book IV, page 538. James Latta Sr. to James Latta Jr. September 18, 1790 for L100, 150
acres of the tract at bottom of my page 6 (date 1 1756). And 50 acres of a tract bought of John Douglas. Witnesses, John Davis and James Davis. Recorded February term of Court 1792, on acknowledgment, James Latta Sr. (He must be the original pioneer then. Pretty old. He does not appear in the records again. He and many of his Clan have no legible tombstones.)
Book IV, Page 402. John Latta, Sr. to James Jackson. October 1790, for L100 gold and
silver, 64 acres on south side of the fork of Little River. Part of a tract granted by Earl Granville to John Dunnegan, May 26, 1758. Granted to John Latta by Hadawick Davis February 10, 1787.

Book IV, page 645, John Davis to John Latta, L240, 192 acres on Foresters Creek, part
of a Granville grant to Davis March 12, 1755. Dated April 12, 1793. Witnesses James Latta Jr., Thomas Latta. Acknowledged by Davis in May Court, 1793.

River, « of a State Grant to Michael Synnott, March 10, 1783. Witnesses James Latta, Jr. John Latta, Jr. Acknowledged in the February Curt, 1797.
A series of Latta deals 40 miles away on the grant Alamance in the south east part of the
present Alamance County. 100 years after formation of Orange Co. in 1845. Alamance County was cut off of Orange Co. to perpetuate the memory of the Battle of Alamance, May 1771, three years before Concord. Earl Granville exacted enormous fees from his tenants, and made illegal levies. The Scotch blood "exploded" and the battle was on. They won.
Book IV, page 266. William Ray to James Latta, February 3, 1791. L30, 10s. 70 acres
on great Alamance and Little Alamance. Witnesses, W. Ray, John Latta, Jurat. Recorded
February Court 1791. On the record is written, "Rec'd of James Latta, L31, 10s. of the within. I say, received by me, William Ray." Test W. Ray, John Latta. This was evidently done to correct a misunderstanding. John Latta, Jurat, made him sign a receipt on the deed book.
The only John Latta, Jurat, in the county is the one above. Yet he is down here in the
interest of a James Latta not identified with the Synnott neighborhood, and John Latta does not come down here after this.
Book IV, page 532. February 24, 1792. William Ray to James Latta, same deed to
correct an error of 20 poles in a deed a year before.
Book IV, page 686. John Rey to James Latta, July 25, 1793 for eight shillings, 5 acres
more on north side Great Alamance, and on north side of tract already purchased. The 40 cents an acre looks like a gift; cost of deed only. Witnesses William Ray, Robert Rey. Acknowledged August Court 1793.
Book V, page 44. James Latta to James Hamilton Roy for L19-1-7d 40 acres on north
side Great Alamance, on west side William Ray. Witnesses William Ray and Robert Ray. March 7, 1794. Latta acknowledged in Court May term 1794.
Book VII, page 30, 3 or 4 years later, same deed is recorded. I find three important
words changed. Book V, page 44, omitted the word forever.
Book V, page 45. William Ray to James Hamilton Ray, March 6, 1794, for L73, 55 acres
on south side Great Alamance. Witnesses William Ray, Jr. and James Latta, Jurat. Recorded May Court 1794.
Book V, page 44 above, both deals by James Hamilton Ray at the same time, recorded
same time. A young couple setting up for themselves. This Anne Ray (see below), was a
daughter of James Latta, (see branch No. 15). James Latta is a Jurat himself.
Book VI, page 455, James Latta to John Scott, L54, 51 acres on north side Grate
Alamance, and a five acre piece north of 51. Date October 9, 1795. Witnesses James Hamilton Ray and Anne Ray. He charges Scott $5.00 an acre where in Book VI, page 44, he then charged J.H. Ray one half of that. A wedding present to his daughter. In Book IV, page 686, John Ray only asked 40 for what Latta can get $5,000.
In these different deeds the name of Ray is also spelled .
A jurat is an officer similar to an alderman, in English towns -- Webster's Dictionary.
