This man is as elusive as they come! Looking for a connection to this family for my husband. Here's the run down:
John (Silas maybe) Latham b.1850 TX or MO. Married to Nora Bell Thompson b. 1891 Indian Territory, OK. Daughter is Viola Mae Latham b. 1915 TX(?). Viola's daughter is Frankie "LaRue" Hudson. LaRue's son is Larry Cowans (thats my hubbby).
Nora was of Cherokee blood but we cant seem to link her with her daughter Viola by documentation. Dont know if John LATHAM is of Indian blood or not because we can't find anything on him.
John was married before to a Georgia Ann Terry & had 4 children, Clara Bell; Addie; Myrtle & James E.
Children with Nora Bell are, Viola Mae; Walter Roy & possibly another.
Family stories say that John was considerably older than Nora, her Daddy didnt like it and he came & got her while she was still nursing an infant to take her home. Viola & Walter then went to live with family, possibly their half siblings (unconfirmed).
If you can help at all with this Soap Opera of a family we have, we would be indebted to you FOREVER!!
