Your Elizabeth Latture could be the daughter of Samuel Hensley Latture. Below is a sketch on Samuel:

SAMUEL HENSLEY LATTURE (32.8.2) is the son of Andrew James Latture and Lucinda (Wininger) Latture. Samuel was born in October of 1840 in Virginia. On February 14, 1864, Samuel Latture first married Margaret Jane Allen. Margaret was born in 1840 in Alabama and is the daughter of Benjamin B. Allen and Mary (Isbell) Allen. In 1870, Samuel and Margaret Latture were living in Jackson County, Alabama. Samuel and Margaret Latture were the parents of seven children:

.....John Andrew Latture (, b. 1864, Alabama
.....Lucinda Latture, b. 1866, Alabama
.....Mary Latture, b. 1867, Alabama
.....Manerva J. Latture, b. 1869, Alabama

.....William B. Latture (, b. April, 1872, Jackson County, Alabama
.....Josia Ann Latture, b. 1874, Jackson County, Alabama

On January 1, 1879, Samuel married a second time to Rachel Elizabeth (Smith) Petty (born 1842). Rachel was previously married and had at least one daughter: Grace Petty (born 1874 in Colorado). In 1880, Samuel and “Elizabeth” Latture were living in Jackson County, Alabama. Samuel and Rachel Latture were the parents of at least two daughters:

....Jesse B. Latture, b. 1880, Jackson County, Alabama

Rachel (Smith) Latture died in 1882 and was buried in the Mount Olive Cemetery in White County, Arkansas. On January 31, 1886, Samuel married a third time to Julia A. Baker (born March 4, 1840 in Alabama). In 1900, Samuel and Julia “Lattun” were living in White County, Arkansas. Julia (Baker) Latture died on May 3, 1905 and was buried in the Mount Olive Cemetery in White County, Arkansas. In January of 1906, Samuel married a fourth time to Annie Smith (born 1846 in Alabama).
