b. 16 August 1711, d. 9 December 1788
Father*Chilton Latham3 b. c 1671, d. 1751
Mother*Susanna Kingman3
Birth*16 August 1711Robert Latham was born on 16 August 1711 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,4
Marriage*12 June 1751He married first Mary Johnson, daughter of David Johnson and Rebeckah Washburn, on 12 June 1751 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,5
(Husband) Death20 April 1752Robert became a widower when Mary (Latham) Latham died on 20 April 1752. They had been married less than a year.3,6
Marriage Intention31 March 1753An intention of marriage for Robert Latham and Bethia (Hayward) Harris was recorded on 31 March 1753 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).7
Marriage*17 April 1753He married second widow Bethia (Hayward) Harris, daughter of Deacon Thomas Hayward and Bethia Brett, on 17 April 1753 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). The vital records of Bridgewater noted the date of their intention as 31 Mar 1753 and the date of their marriage as 17 Apr 1752. Since Robert's first wife died on Apr 20 1752, this researcher thinks Robert and Bethia actually married on 17 Apr 1753 and that the marriage was dated or transcribed incorrectly in the Bridgewater records.2,7,3
(Husband) Death29 August 1778Robert became a widower for the second time when Bethia Latham died on 29 August 1778.3,8
Marriage*18 November 1778He married third, as her first husband, Jerusha Hooper, daughter of Thomas Hooper and Sarah Packard, on 18 November 1778 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress).1,9,3

(Wife) Death30 October 1782Abigail became a widow when Jacob Keith died on 30 October 1782.6
(Youngest Sister) Estate and Land19 February 1799When probate was reopened on the estate of Abigail's brother, Ephraim Leach, on 19 February 1799 in Plymouth County before Judge Joshua Thomas, the judge issued a warrant to Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes, empowering and directing them to take a view of the homestead farm that Ephraim, late of Bridgewater, had died seized of and to divide it into four equal parts or shares, first giving timely notice to all persons interested to be present if they saw cause. The men were further directed to assign and set off one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mehitable Leach, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's deceased sister Mercy Peterson, one share to the heirs of Ephraim's brother David Leach, also deceased, and one share to Ephraim’s sister Abigail (Leach) Keith, the wife of Jacob Keith, all in accordance with the directions in Ephraim's 1767 will. The committee was instructed by the judge to divide the shares by metes and bounds, considering quantity and quality, so that the heirs may hold their shares separately, forever. The judge ordered the men to make a return of the warrant with their doings and signatures, under oath, as soon as conveniently possible.7,8
Death*before 19 October 1802She died before 19 October 1802 when she was identified as a deceased sister of Ephraim Leach in the distribution of his homestead farm to his siblings and their heirs.7
(Youngest Sister) Estate and Land19 October 1802The warrant to divide and distribute the homestead farm of the deceased Ephraim Leach was returned by Daniel Tolman, Ephraim Fobes and Daniel Fobes to the Honorable Joshua Thomas in Plymouth County on 19 October 1802. The committee's written report outlined the process they used, the details of each share, and how they were distributed among the recipients. The committee completed their return of the warrant by stating to the court that they had taken a view of the homestead that Ephraim Leach, late of Bridgewater, died seized of and, pursuant to the warrant and as directed by Judge Joshua Thomas, had divided the homestead agreeably and assigned and set off to the heirs of the several persons mentioned, their respective heirs' shares, to be held separately. The document was filed with the court on 6 April 1805.

The parts or shares identified as the first and second, representing one half of the total, were assigned jointly to the legal representatives of Mehitable Leach and Abigail (Leach) Keith, deceased sisters of the testator, Ephraim Leach. The combined share began at a stake and stones on the north side of the highway, which was the southeast corner bounds of Ephraim's farm. From there running westerly by and with Joseph Leach's range about 33 rods to a stake and stones standing in his range, which was the northeast corner bounds of the divisions. And from there westerly to a stake and stones at the northwest corner of these shares, and from there southerly about 35 rods to the highway, and from there easterly about 17 rods by and with the highway to the beginning of the bounds first mentioned. Their two shares contained about three and one half acres, together with the easterly one half of the dwelling house and one half of the barn.7,8
