From latta.org note D
AMERY LATTA Married: Baltimore Calvert. or some other member of the Calvert family, gave a 99 year lease to valuable property in Baltimore , Maryland. And that lease has expired. This branch of the Calvert family
intermarried with the Latta family. The only information I can get is from the old family Bible of Mrs. Ester ( Latta) Hickerson, which in 1929 was owned by
Orien F. Deater, a descendant of Ester (Latta) Hickerson, of Muskegon, Mich. He said that the writing is very dim, and some of it has been torn out. But he makes out that
AMERY LATTA Married Baltimore Calvert, and it mentions Dora (Hickerson) Deater. Mr. W.A. Hickerson, of Tacoma, Wash. Wrote that he and his sister sent all the
information to Mr. Emmet Galloway, La Grange, Ind. Mr. Galloway is dead, and the papers lost. Mrs. May Barnum, of Alto, Mich. Writes, " My mother told me in an
early day that there was a large fortune coming to her or her heirs, that 1100 acres of land was given by Lord Baltimore to his daughter, Prudence for a wedding gift, and she leased it to the city of Baltimore for 99 years. That the lease expired in 1907". Her mother was Elizabeth Faught, Daughter of Robert and Isabella Waddell Latta. Branch No. 1 family No.7. I do not have the name of
Elizabeth as one of the children of 7 Robert Latta.

I am descended from Dora (Hickerson) Deater her grandparents were Lemuel Hickerson and Esther Latta. Esther was born around 1809 and married 5 April 1825 in Licking, Ohio. I need help finding Esther connection to Calvert and her parents names. I know her husband's family was from Maryland.
