Hi Rick, thanks for your reply. I posted that message 7 months ago and based it on an aunt's memories.I have learned sooo much since that time.
My great grandfather Lauson H. Latty was born Nov 30, 1895 in Jane, McDonald County, Missouri and lived in Pineville, MO until approx 1917.....same county your Latty is from so we may be related. :)
According to cencus records (1900, 1910)he was raised by an aunt and uncle...William and Mary J. LATTY Pierce from at least the age of 4 until adulthood. In the 1910 cencus William Pierce has passed away and Lauson is living with the same aunt, Mary J. (Latty) Pierce, and his grandmother Susan Latty.
Based on cencus records and corresponding with other Latty researchers I know Lauson H. Latty is the grandson of William Latty and Susan Abernathy.Lauson had a photograph - now in my possession - of George Lawson Latty (Mary's brother) and 3 of his children.
I'm searching in this branch because we know he fits into this tree, we jut cannot figure out exactly HOW or WHO Lauson's father was.
My email address is WEBEFIVE5@cs.com and I would love to discuss this line with you a little more. Debbie
