    • Widely reported in online genealogies is the family tradition that George Madison Lattea was stabbed to death in or near Marietta, Ohio on either 3 October 1892 or 9 March 1892, and was buried in an unmarked grave in Walnut Fork (formerly Bethel) Cemetery, near Vadis, Lewis Co, WV. But thorough research by more recent family historians has found no evidence to support that account, other than accepting the 1892 death year, since census records do reflect that he died between 1880 and 1900.
