87. Samuel Lafayette FESMIRE. Born in Jul 1876 in Henderson County, Tennessee. Alias/AKA: "Latt".

1900 Henderson County Census shows "Latt" living with his father in Henderson County, Tennessee. This shows his occupation as a music teacher.

On 22 Sep 1901 when Samuel Lafayette was 25, he married Frances Jane GIBSON, daughter of William F. GIBSON & Sarah Ann GILBERT, in Lamar County, Texas. Born on 21 Dec 1879 in Gadsden, Alabama. At the age of 43, Frances Jane died in Pattonville, Texas on 26 Feb 1923. Alias/AKA: "Fannie".

230 ii. Bessie Lou (1908-1987)
231 iii. Ester (1910-1998)

It appears that Latt and Frances married about 1901. They had three children. By 1910, she along with her three children, were living in the home of her father. It appears that "Latt" and Frances had separated by 1909. It is known that 'Latt" was a accomplished pianist and a musician by trade. Rumor has it that he repaired and tuned muscial instruments on a commission basis and retained more that his commission on some jobs and left by the back door as the sheriff came in the front door.
