Biographical History of Mercer County, Vol. 1. pg. 405 states "George Latimer was a farmer of prominence, was a successful man; and was the father of eight children, the only one of whom now living being Mrs. Martha Gilbert, of Ada, Ohio. He was one of the earliest settlers of Richland County, was a strong democrat in politics, and a true Presbyterian in religion." Date of removal from Pennsylvania to Richland County probably was about 1810, as son William was born in PA, 1804/5 came as a small child to Richland.
On p. 394 of Graham, in the "History of Blooming Grove" chapter, in a discussion of early settlers, he writes: "George Lattimer and Christian Ehret settled near the present site of Rome."

Notes for Margaret Latimer:
Boyd Crumrine, in his chapter on Independence Township, from History of Washington County, Pennsylvania pp 824-835. Biography of Dr. Joseph Parkinson, whose mother was Margaret Latimer says in writing of Joseph's father, Thomas Parkinson:
"About the year 1783, Thomas Parkinson was married to Margaret Latimer, whose parents lived in the Ligonier valley, Westmoreland Co., PA., not far distant from Hannastown, then the seat of justice for the county. The Latimers were of English decent, and came from Philadelphia to Ligonier valley in the exciting times of Indian warfare. In the days of their early married life, Mr. Latimer and his wife, with their infant child, were taken captives by the Indians, and subjected to a five days' march across the Ohio River into the wilderness. The parents, with their child finally managed to escape, and after undergoing many hardships reached their home. Mr. Latimer was also badly wounded by the Indians while carrying a message from one fort to another in the Ligonier valley.
They lived when the dangers to which they were exposed developed strong points of character. In her girlhood Margaret, with her only sister, Martha, would follow the reapers in the harvest-field, carrying loaded rifles for their use in case they should be attacked by the Indians.
Thomas Parkinson had lived at his Brooke County home but a short time when, in May, 1807, he became ill, and September 30th of the same year he died. At this time Dr. Joseph Parkinson was but seven months old, so he never knew a father's care. This loss, however, was in a great measure supplied by the affectionate care and good training of a kind mother. She was an excellent woman, largely endowed with common sense, intelligence, prudence, and a strong will power, but of quiet and gentle manners, and of more culture than the women of her time in the Western country, having been educated in one of the girls' schools of Philadelphia. While she had strong affection for her children, she never allowed that affection to control her better judgment, and believing that the future development of the man or woman depended largely upon the early training of the mother, she taught her children to be industrious, persevering, and energetic, and warned them against indolence and vices. Her chief desire was that her children should become good and useful members of society.
Notes for Thomas Parkinson:
From Crumrine, History of Washington Co., Biographical sketches, pub. 1880.
The Parkinsons were of English ancestry, having come to this country in the early part of the last century. Afterwards William Parkinson, grandfather of Dr. Joseph Parkinson, settled near Carlisle, Cumberland Co., PA. He had a large family, most of whom were sons. Of these, Benjamin, Joseph, and Thomas came to Washington County at an early date. Joseph owned and kept the ferry on the Monongahela River, then called "Parkinson's Ferry", now Monongahela City. He and Thomas were also engaged in the mercantile business at that place. Thomas was enterprising and energetic, taking an active part in all the efforts of the time in the material development of the county. He was strictly temperate in his habits, and opposed to the "Whiskey Insurrection," in which his brother Benjamin was one of the leaders. In 1777, Thomas Parkinson bought a farm of three hundred acres from John Decker, on Pigeon Creek, near Parkinson's Ferry. Subsequently he built at this place the first mill on Pigeon Creek, where he carried on the business of milling and farming for a number of years. In 1792 he sold this property to James McFarlane, and the next year he moved to Fayette County, Pa. In 1804 he sold his firm and mill in Fayette County, Pa., and bought a farm in Brooke County, Va., adjoining the farm on which the college and village of Bethany were afterwards built, and to which he removed with his family in 1805 or 1806. Thomas Parkinson had lived at his Brooke County home but a short time when, in May, 1807, he became ill, and September 30th of the same year he died.
