My fifth great grandfather, Stephen R. Latham, broke the trend of Latham longevity. He died of typhoid at the age of 76. Unfortunately, Stephen's son, James Harvey Latham, also died of typhoid fever. He was only 39. I wonder how long they might have lived if they had not been victims of the disease.
By the way, Rev. George Washington Latham, the subject of the newspaper article and a Civil War veteran, died a few years after the story was printed, at the age of 91.
