Robert Latham
Birth: 1623, England
Death: 1688

Robert married Susanna Winslow about 1649 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony. They had children:
Mercy - b@ 1650
Hannah - b@ 1653
Sarah - b@ 1656
James - b@ 1658
Elizabeth - b@ 1665
Chilton - b@ 1672


Robert settled in Satucket (a section of the current town of East Bridgewater) in 1665.

Robert died in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Dominion of New England.

Robert's grave is not marked with a headstone. The marker, placed by his 3rd GreatGrandson Williams Latham, in this cemetery marks Robert's life, but does not mark his grave. In his book, "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater", Williams Latham wrote:
"The adult persons living and dying in this part of old Bridgewater previous to 1703, and probably buried in this yard, so far as is known, were N. Byram, 1688, and his wife, Robert Latham and wife, 1685-1688; Jonathan Cary, of Beaver, 1695; Experience Mitchell, of Elmwood, 1689; Mercy Harris, wife of Issac Harris, about 1682. No other public place of burial is known to have been used; and we find a very few private burying-grounds in the early settlement of the town, here, or elsewhere, in old Bridgewater."
