Descendants of Colonel Jonathan Latimer Family Reunion

Colonel Jonathan Latimer's appointment of his son Wetherell Latimer to Adjutant, 1783. (Via Footnote

Thomas Latimer, a descendant of Colonel Jonathan Latimer (1724-1806), contacted my family recently because he is organizing a reunion for our common ancestor. Anybody descended from any of Jonathan and Lucretia (Griswold) Latimer's children Hannah, Jonathan, Borodell, Wetherell, Charles, Robert, Griswold, Joseph, and Nathaniel are welcome.

The reunion will be held Saturday September 17, 2011 at the Ocana Community Center in Sumner County, Tennessee. This is approximately one mile from Colonel Jonathan Latimer's original property.

If you're interested in more details, feel free to contact me, and I can pass on Thomas Latimer's details.

    2. Thank you for posting! Going to try to get info on 2017 reunion and try to attend. Need help in a Latimer lineage roadblock that has been plaguing me for 2 years! Plus this will give me opportunity to go to TN records and do on site research! If anyone has info on Charles D. Latimer, I'd appreciate it. His birth record is alluding me! Thanks for keeping the info posted, it's greatly appreciated. Also does Tommy Latimer have email?

    3. Just found your posting; no Tommy does not email, but he is the contact for additional information regarding the reunion. Just give him a call; I'm sure he would love to hear from you!
