  • Notes 
    • Nancy Latta

      Nancy Angelina Latta, the youngest Latta daughter,  was born on Valentine's Day in 1804.  She was the first child born at Latta Plantation.

      She attended Salem Female Academy from 1817 to 1819. During this time, Sarah Childress, who became the wife of  James K. Polk, our 11th president, also attended the Academy. Nancy would have taken classes in reading, writing, grammar, arithmetic, history, geography, and plain needlework, which was the usual course of study.  In addition, it appears she took optional courses in fine needlework and painting, since her expense records from 1819 include charges for embroidery silk, embroidery beads, chenille, drawing pencils,  paintbrushes, "colours," and stationery.

      On December 11, 1828,  Nancy married Rufus Reid. Rufus was the manager of the very successful Catawba Springs, a fashionable Lincoln County mineral springs resort owned by his parents.  According to family members, Nancy and Rufus lived at Catawba Springs, at least at the start of their marriage, although Rufus did purchase land in Iredell County in March, 1828.

      Nancy and Rufus had three daughters: Sarah (Sallie), Mary Jane ("Flax"), and Nancy (Nannie).

      Nancy 's death on November 5, 1833, at 29 years of age, was caused by the "flux," now known as dysentery.  She is buried in the Hopewell Churchyard.
