LATHAM, Joel E. - Joel E. Latham was born January 4, 1845 in Marlboro, Connecticut. He enlisted as a volunteer in the Civil War and served until its close. He was married to Phebe Phillip in September 1867. To this union was born seven children, three of whom died in childhood; the four surviving are Carrie Clayville of Tarpon Springs, Florida; Cora Stone of Geddes, South Dakota, Edwin Latham and Flora Carroll, both of Rogers.

There are also six great-grand children, Claude, Dorothy, Wesley, Cora, Helen and Lawrence Smith. He is survived by a sister and brother living in Connecticut and two half-brothers who live in New York. About 1872 he moved his family from Connecticut to Iowa where he engaged in the mercantile business for a time. When South Dakota was being opened for settlement he moved to that state {then a territory) and filed upon government land which he farmed for a number of years until he moved to Geddes, South Dakota working at his trade - carpentering. He retired from active labor fifteen years ago and came to Rogers to make his home because of the milder climate. While not identified with any church yet he always took an active part in all church and civic work until his hearing became too impaired for him to do so. He has always stood for everything honorable and just and also practiced right living. He is survived by his wife and four children. He passed away at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20, 1926 and was laid to rest in the city cemetery of Rogers, Arkansas.
