Re: Boggess post of May 2013.
Henry Latham b. abt 1811 in Virginia married Vashi "Vesty" Caroline Boggess Mar 19, 1835. Vesty was born Sept 22 1817 in Bledsoe, TN and died 1879. In 1850 they lived in McMinn Co, TN with at least 8 children...Abigail, Amanda, Thomas, Martha, Calvin, Susan, John, Vesty C. There are 2 burial grounds that I know of that hold Lathams. One is in "Rogers Creek" (between Athens & Decatur, TN) Located not in Roger's Creek Church, but in a small clump on woods surrounded by farmland (unmarked graveyard). The other is on top of the hill on Twin Lakes Farm (Niota), also surrounded by cattle, but fenced off (unmarked graveyard). Vesty's parents were Susan E. Jordan & Abijah Boggess (buried Mt. Zion, Ten Mile, TN) . From there up is easily found and well documented. Hope this helps ! =Joyce firstname.lastname@example.org
