Richland County, Ohio Cemetery Records, page 9.  Blooming Grove twp.:  Latimer, William d 12 Feb 1850 - 44 y9m11d

Vol. I, Biographical History of Mercer Co., pg. 405, indicates that William Latimer was born in Westmoreland Co., Pa.  Further:  "William Latimer, the second of his (George's) children, was reared on his father's farm, and was educated in Richland county, Ohio, being but a small child when his parents settled there.  He received a better education than did most boys of his time, and became a school teacher in Richland county.  Having a fine voice, to the training of which he gave considerable attention, he became a good singer, and engaged in teaching singing-school, as well as public school.  About 1833 he married Nancy Wilson, a daughter of James and Mary (Hunter) Wilson, by whom he had seven children......

William Latimer, after his marriage, lived on his farm in Richland county until his death, which occurred in November, 1848.  In politics he was a democrat and served as justice of the peace for twenty years.  he was a prominent member of the Presbyterian church, and for years held the position of chorister.  his widow (is) also a member of that church, and lived on the home farm in Richland county until 1893, but at present resides in Richland county with her daughter."

Note:  Since the cemetery record shows his d.o.d. as February 12, 1850, it is assumed that the date given in the Mercer County records of November, 1848, is incorrect.
