Robert W. Latimer (who was my great great grandfather) was born about 1815 in Tennessee, came to Texas o/a 1840. He was listed on some later Census Records as R.W. by the enumerator. He is found on the Republic of Texas Tax Lists of 1840. He married Nancy Greenwood in Tennessee o/a 1836. They had two children, James Robert Latimer and John G. Latimer, who were born in Tennessee. He had several children born in Texas and several born in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. When he came to Texas he was in Nacogdoches County; later was in Rusk (on 1850 Census) and Shelby (on 1860 Census) Counties. I am trying to find out who Robert W. Latimer's parents were, where in Tennessee he came from, and where he and his wife were married and children were born. I have not been able to determine where he died; he was in Bosque County on the 1880 Census.
