Subject: [LATTA] Branch 28
I have e-mailed our Branch 28 captain and wasn't able to contact her because
the message was returned as undeliverable. Could we get an update to see if
anyone knows what the situation is?
There are some errors in our branch that need to be corrected. I was told
some time ago the name of the contact person but my computer crashed and
then I didn't remember the name of the contact.
In Branch 28 the death date of 2 David (2) Latta, b about 1765 and d 1882,
is probably wrong. He would have been 117 years old when he died. If this
date is correct I hope I inherited his genes!! . We went to the old Diamond
Hill cemetery and were sad to see that there was very little there. It was
overgrown with weeds and we could not find a stone which is supposed to have
the name David on it. Also, which David was it? Hopefully, someone will
be able to give us the correct date of his death as well as the source.
There is a couple, Ernestine and Robert Collier from Jackson, GA, who have
relatives buried at Diamond Hill. They erected a sign to designate the
cemetery and have included the names of their family members. They are an
older couple who had to drive about 100 miles and they said that they would
not be able to take care of it much longer. That was several years ago.
They wanted to deed the cemetery to descendents due to the upkeep. There is
a new Diamond Hill Baptist Church built several miles from the original so
the old cemetery has been neglected for a long time.
There is a mistake in the 3 John (3) Latta family about #15. Frances
Melissa (4) was born in Hall Co. GA, on April 11, 1824, and died May 18,
1894. I have seen the gravesite. She married my GGG grandfather John
Oliver Browning born January 30, 1823, and died February 13, 1898. They
were married January 29, 1844.
The name above hers is Eglantine (?). According to the info on Branch 28
she and Frances were both born in 1817 which is not true.
These are not earth shaking comments but we all like to get it right, and it
may be of interest to someone in Branch 28.
You have made this into a GREAT website and it's growing. Thanks.
