I ran across this several years ago:

Thomas Latham, a well-to-do farmer of West Fork Township,Washington,Ark. and an ex-Union soldier, was born in Jackson Co Alabama, on the 23 August,1827 being a son of Jonathan and Elizabeth (Ball) Latham, and a grandson of Cornelius Latham, who was a native of the "Old North State," and was an extensive stock dealer and farmer. Kpnathan Latham was born in Randolph Co, NC in 1800 and died in the State of Alabama, Dec 27, 1887, to which State he had moved in 1821. He was a prominent politician of his State, and during the war was a staunch Union man, and was representing his county in the State Legislature when the war broke out. He was an extensive land holder, and at the time of his death was the owner of about 1000 acres of land, nearly all of which was under good cultivation. To his union with Miss Elizabeth Ball, whom he married shortly after coming to Alabama, was born a family of twelve children, all of whom grew to maturity, and ten of whom are living at the present time. The mother died in 1882. Thomas Latham resided in his native state until August 28, 1863 when he enlisted in Company A first Alabama Volunteers amd dod jpmprab;e servoce fpr jos cpimtru imto; 1864 when he was disbled for life being thrown from his horse while carrying a message from Gen. Morgan Smith to Gen John A Logan. He returned home, and in 1867 removed to Tennessee, where he was married to Elizabeth Freeman, and lived until 1869 when he returned to Alabama and in 1871 came to Benton Co, Ark and two years later to West Fork where he has since been engaged in farming. He is a member pf tje AF &AM . tje GAR. :pdge #14 and in his political views is a staunch republican. To his marriage with Miss Freeman, who is a daughter of John W Freeman, an ex-soldier of the Mexican War, seven children have been born: John T., Barbara (wife of John Hope), Julia, Fannie, George, Ada G and Nettie. Mr and Mrs Latham are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

They didn’t mention anything about his wife and family in Alabama. 😌
