I descend from John Latham/Lathan/Leathem of Lancaster County, SC. I do not
know John's birthdate, but he was in the Revolutionary War. His pension
records are on file in S. C. Archives under the name John Leathem/ Latham.
In the pension records, his wife is named as Margaret. This would be his
second wife and surviving widow. The pension papers give the date of death
as 12 Oct. 1831.
I descend from his daughter Sarah who married Thomas Oates of Gaston County,
NC. They attended Pisgah ARP Church and are buried in their old cemetery.
Any help in connecting with the ancestors or more fully understanding the
family will be greatly appreciated.
