OBITUARY: Samuel Latta
Once more Death has claimed a citizen and a member of the Grand Army, this time in the person of Samuel Latta of Moose Ridge, who died Saturday afternoon, June 8, 1912, aged 79 years and 6 days. He had not been well for some time, but was able to visit Woodsfield on Decoration Day although very feeble.

Samuel Latta was a pioneer farmer of this county, a member of the M.P. Church, a member of the GAR post of this place and an exemplary citizen. His wife preceded him to the better world several years ago. Four children and many friends are left. The funeral, in charge of Gen. W. P. Richardson Post, took place Monday and was largely attended. Rev. Eastlake preached the sermon. Interment in the Moose Ridge Cemetery. Ever true friend, rest in peace.
