I am trying to search back information on the Latham family from the Counties of probably Andrew, Buchanan, Holt, and Nodaway Counties in Missouri. My great grandfather was John Cyrus Latham. His stone indicates that his birth year was 1865, but the death certificate gives his birth as 1861. He was married to Lucy Ann Thornhill. I think his father was John Harrison Latham, sr. and I have coflicts about his mother. Some places list her as Martha Reel, Sarah Martha Reel, Sarah Elizabeth Reel. I am trying to trace back from John Cyrus, as the names become so common such as John Latham, James Latham, etc. Does anyone have any information on this family before John Cyrus? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
