LUTHER W. LATTIMER, farmer, Wilkes county, Ga., son of John T. and Martha (Taylor) Lattimer, was born in Oglethorpe county, Ga., Feb. 5, 1839, the eighth of ten children, seven boys and three girls, six of the boys being dead. His mother was the daughter of Col. Clarke Taylor of Oglethorpe county. He was reared and worked on his father's farm during his boyhood, and was educated at the country schools. His father's rule was to work his boys two years and send them to school one. This was done until he reached the age of sixteen years, when he entered Meson academy, Lexington, Ga., and attended there three years. He then worked on the farm a year, after which he attended the academy another year. After leaving school and teaching five months he enlisted in the Gilmer Blues, Capt. (afterward Col.) John T. Lofton. The company went to Atlanta, became a part of the Sixth Georgia regiment, Col. Alfred H. Colquitt, and was ordered to Yorktown, Va. The command participated in the battles of Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Mechanicsville and Cold Harbor. At the last-named battle he was wounded in the neck, and the wound being pronounced mortal he was sent home to die. But he rapidly recovered, and was required to report every sixty days. In January, 1864, he reported at James Island, S. C., for duty, but the examining board adjudged him unfit for regular service, and he was sent to Fort Gaines, Ga., where a hospital was being organized, and was made clerk of the examining board, remaining there until after the surrender. Returning home he resumed farming, and has followed it ever since. He was elected in 1892 to represent Wilkes county in the general assembly, which he did to the entire satisfaction of his intelligent constituency. He is now a member of the board of jury commissioners. Mr. Lattimer was married Dec. 18, 1862, to Miss Euphrasia, daughter of Moses Wright, of Oglethorpe county, who has borne him six children, three sons and three daughters, all living. Mr. Lattimer is a master Mason, and a member of the Methodist church. A useful and public-spirited citizen, he is influential and popular.
