6 JAMES M. (3) LATTA/LATTY

John S. (2) John (1) b. Feb. 17, 1853 in Georgia; d. 1897; m. Mary Gilbert, daughter of Felix Gilbert and Nancy Gilbert. Mary was born in Alabama. James is buried in the Caney Cemetery, Tahlequah, Cherokee County, Oklahoma. Mary S. Latta, wife of James M. Latta, states in her Eastern Cherokee Application that her husband, James M. Latta, is the son of John Latta and he is the one that came from the Cherokee tribe in the Cherokee Nation from the State of Alabama and was at the enrollment in 1835, Lookout Valley in the State of Tennessee. (The majority of Americans who descend from a Native American ancestor do not qualify for tribal membership. Their ancestors may have left the tribe long before the 1817 Treaty with the Cherokee, which lead to the creation of the Reservation Roll that listed the head of every Indian family residing on the east side of the Mississippi River on lands that were then or would thereafter be surrendered to the United States in exchange for citizenship. They received a life estate of 640 acres of land from the federal government. The government then took the 1835 Cherokee East of the Mississippi Census.) Children:

13     JOHN W. (4) b. April 8, 1876 in Montgomery Co., Arkansas (Dawes Commission Application No. 21380 - Eastern Cherokee Application) John states in his application that "my father, James M.

He was a recognized member of the tribe when he lived there. He moved from Georgia with his father when he was a small boy. The whole generation came with him...When they left Georgia, they moved to Arkansas...My father left Ark. And came to Okla. In 1891. I donít know whether my grandfather was ever enrolled or not. He moved out here also." (Statement taken - Sept. 26, 1908)
