Mr Ed Klever, of Bloomington, Ohio, on June 20, 1907, wrote;
" His (William Latta) Mother was a sister to my (Ed Klever) mother , and Mrs.
Latta died when I was a small boy. All I know was what my mother told me of
William Latta's mother. She was married the second time to William Latta, and I
think two children by that marriage, One boy and one girl. William Latta had a
half sister living at Mt. Sterling, Ohio, By the name of Robinson. I think that
Mr. Latta's father came from Roxabel, Ross Co., Ohio.
I (Robert H Latta) wrote to Mrs. Robinson, but she was not at Mt. Sterling. If
his father lived at Roxabel, Ohio, I think he belonged to BRANCH No.10.
