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.
