Died at Savannah, Ga.
Word was received, last week, by Mrs. A. L. Marr of this place, of the death of her nephew, Richard D. Lattimore, of Savannah, Ga. Mr. Lattimore was the son of the late William Lattimore, brother of Mrs. Marr. His family was well known in this county some years ago. Their last visit north was made about six years ago, when Mrs. Lattimore and two of her sons spent several weeks here. They took them to their southern home the friendship of all who had the pleasure of meeting them. In referring to the deceased, the newspapers of Savannah say that he was a gentleman of the highest integrity, a true Christian and a successful business man, succeeding his father to the head of one of the oldest and largest hardware houses in Savannah. He was buried with Masonic honors. His mother and three brothers, Drs. Rawlston and Harry H. Lattimore, and William Lattimore survive. He was 39 years of age.

The brother William Lattimore's findagrave is No. 185853428 and was consistently listed as a merchant in the census.
