Looking for any information on Augustus Grube (1851-1911) and Laura (Lippolt) Grube (1854-1927) - believe they were members of German Evangelical Church in the very early 1900's.

Seeking a connection between William and Eunice LATTIN (and their children George E., Carria, Wilson Henry and Deller) shown in the 1860 and 1870 Veteran Census and the other LATTIN families in the area. Family lore is that William died about age 40 of pneumonia after the 1870 Census and the family scattered. I do find a William LATTIN ( d. 30 Aug 1870 ) buried in Pine Valley Cemetery, Town of Catlin ( and a Eunice, widow of William, in the 1874 Boyd's directory ( Don't know if they are the same, however.

I also believe Burton LATTIN (1799 - 1873) - first cousin, once removed of Abiad / Abiard LATTIN, had five boys (public Ancestry tree at, one of whom was a William. However, I have found nothing definite to link William to Burton nor to the William buried in Pine Valley. Another public family tree claims that Abiard's brother, Abner, also had a son named William, but no citations are offered in proof.

George Edward LATTIN is my great grandfather and I show him in various Censuses in Reading Township (1900 & 1910) and Watkins (1920 & 1930) and possibly the 1860 & 1870 Veteran Censuses. However, I do not have a definite connection between William LATTIN and his ancestors. Nor do I yet have proof that George E is, in fact, my George Edward. In trying to narrow down the connection, I have linked over 400 people, many LATTINS in the Veteran area which I would be pleased to share if anyone has an interest (with the caution that I have been more focused on trying to identify George E than providing complete citations on all).

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you - Jim Warters (
