I'm looking for information about my great-great-grandfather's family. His name was George Washington Lathem (1875-1939, Jefferson County Alabama). His parents were Sarah D Baker (b 1842, Alabama) and James S Lathem (b 1833, Georgia).
I am trying to find out more about James' family and lineage. His parents are Sophronia Turner (1800 SC - 1861 AL) and Anthony Lathem (1794 VA - 1859 AL). He is the only child born in Georgia, the rest were born in South Carolina or Alabama. I have found census records of Anthony in Jefferson, Alabama but nothing past that other than an individual record on FamilySearch listing his parents as John Lathem, Sr and Winnifred St Clair.
If anyone has any info/ hints or is also researching this family line please let me know.
