The lineage in which I am interested is that of James Lewis Latham, b.

NC to Alabama and then settled in Choctaw County, MS.

I would appreciate any help in filling in the blanks and correcting
errors. If anyone has information on the ancestry of James or Nancy,
I'd certainly be interested in it, with sources.
