There is a 1935 Minneapolis newspaper clipping with a story about Thomas E. Latimer. He had just been elected Mayor of Minneapolis. He was married briefly to May Hesler. She told Thomas the baby she was carrying died in childbirth in 1906. He found that the boy was indeed quite alive 29 years later (1935) and they reunited. Ira went to college at University of Chicago as did his wife, Imogene. Ira lived in Hyde Park until he died in 1985.

There is no record of Thomas H. Latimer on the Memorandum pages of the Bible, so Iím not sure how he relates to these Latimers unless he was the nephew of the Patriarch (James) or the son of H. J. or Johnston.

There is also an article about Sergeant Latimer of company C Fifth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He lived in Cleveland.

There is a loan receipt signed by H. J. Latimer from the 5th Ohio Volunteer Infantry for the amount of 1.00. The date on it is Jan. 31,1898. I'm assuming both of these were the same person. He is listed on the Memorandum page.

H. J. Latimer owned a real Estate business later on, as one of his business cards is in this Bible.
