Re: Robert Bottom of VA

Not long ago a Latimer researcher had sent me a small information about Robert Bottom's parents. He was the son of John Bottom, born 1742 and died 1802 in Mercer Co., KY and Nancy (maiden name unknown). Later on I've learned that this John was the son of Thomas Bottom, born 1708 Henrico Co., VA and died 1789 and Rebecca Turner. Yes, Robert was the grandson of Thomas & Rebecca. There are 4 more generations, from this Thomas to John Bottom, born in England.

I have several siblings of John Bottom and Robert Bottom. I've looked for your Frances Bottom(s) in my record and I don't have her.

About the Latimer family, I don't have the record of the Latimer siblings, too. Like the Bottom family, I just start to find the family lineage. Mary O. Latimore was the daughter of Samuel Latimer, Sr., born ? and died 1828 in Mercer Co., KY and Lydia (maiden name unknown). From the deed records Samuel & Lydia had lived in Pittsylvania Co., VA, from 1778 to 1787 and they moved to Green Co., KY, from 1796 to 1805. Then they moved to Mercer Co., KY and lived there until their death. I don't have the record of your Latimer family in my file.

If you are the descendant of both Thomas Bottom and Samuel Latimer, Sr., I would like to exchange the information. My e mail address is
