"George Latimer, who is successfully engaged in agricultural pursuits in Butler township, was born in Richland county, Ohio, August 2, 1837, a son of William and Nancy (Wilson) Latimer, the former a native of Washington county, Pennsylvania, and the latter of Westmoreland county, that state......Their family numbered seven children, namely:  Elizabeth J., of Iowa; George; John, deceased; Wilson, who has also passed away; Mary E., the wife of James Huston, of Ohio; Margery, who is the wife of John Gilger and makes her home in this county; and William S., also a resident of Richland county.

George Latimer acquired his education in the public schools and remained under the parental roof until he had attained his majority.  After his marriage he was successfully engaged in the operation of a rented farm for seventeen years, on the expiration of which period he purchased the place of one hundred and three acres on section 13, Butler township where he still resides.  He has placed many substantial improvements on the property, and in addition to the work of general farming makes a specialty of stock-raising.  He has long been well known as one of the substantial and enterprising agriculturists of the community and as one whose success is entirely the result of his own well directed labor and capable management.  Owned and farmed 103 acres, Sec. 13, Butler Twp.

When twenty-three years of age Mr. Latimer was united in marriage to Miss Euphemia Maden, whose birth occurred in Blooming Grove township in 1837.  Her parents were Alexander and Susan (Crofford) Maden, the former a native of Beaver county, Pennsylvania, and the latter of Maryland.  They are both now deceased.  Mrs. Latimer was one of a family of three children, and by her marriage became the mother of four:  William A., who has passed away; Martha Jane, at home; J.W. residing in Weller township; and Mary, the wife of Elza Martin.  In 1892 Mr Latimer was called upon to mourn the death of his wife.  Her remains were interred in the Blooming Grove cemetery."  The article continues, saying he is a stanch democrat, is active in that political party, served as trustee and member of the school board, attends Methodist Episcopal church.

Notes for John Latimer:
From Vol. I, Biographical History of Mercer County:

"John Latimer is one of the most prominent and successful of the farmers of Black Creek township, Mercer County, Ohio.  He was born March 16, 1840, in Richland county and is the son of William and Nancy (Wilson) Latimer.

John Latimer, like his father before him, was brought up on a farm in Richland county, and beside securing a good education and a knowledge of farming, also learned the trade of carpenter, which trade he followed exclusively until his marriage, and afterward he followed his trade in connection with farming.

 "After his marriage Mr. Latimer lived in Richland county on his farm until 1871, when he removed to Mercer county and purchased his present property.  His present residence he erected in 1884, and built a large barn in 1887.  This barn was destroyed by fire in 1893, causing his a loss of $2,000.  In 1894 he erected his present barn.  Politically Mr. Latimer is a democrat and has served as justice of the peace for five years.  He is also a member of the school board; was a charter member of Shiloh Lodge, No. 158, I.O.O.F. of Richland County, and is a charter member of Rockford lodge.  Mr. Latimer has at the present time one of the best farms in the county, which is saying a good deal, for there are many excellent farms in Mercer county, containing, as it does, so much rich land.  His buildings are of modern style and arrangement, and well adapted to the uses for which they were designed; and Mr. Latimer is at the same time a most public-spirited and progressive man.  Always on the lookout for improvements, he is sure to detect them when they are first made, and is as ready to adopt anything that shows itself to be an improvement as to continue on with what is good until it is actually superseded by something known to be better."
