Notes for Isaac Latshaw:
[Brethern Heritage Along the Big Conewago, p 50)
Isaac Latshaw (1764-1833) was the son of Joseph Latshaw (1730-1820) who migrated
into Fayette county, Pennsylvania. E.L.
Sheffer claimed that Joseph Latshaw was his great grandfather. p52 As early as
1783, Isaac Latshaw was listed as a resident
of Reading Township with 200 acres and five inhabitants. At this time, he owned
four cattle, four horses, eight sheep and one still.
The Latshaw family purchased a farm which lay close to the Kuhn Fording. The
Latshaw family lived in a home in which the first
floor was of stone construction and the second floor of logs. ... Isaac and Anna
reared their children as farming people. Many of
the sons acquired land in Reading, Washington, and Warrington Townships of York,
and Adams Counties.
[Gettisburg "Compiler", June 11, 1833 obituary) DIED -
On Wednesday the 5th inst. after a protracted illness, which he bore with the
most christian fortitude and pious resignation to the
Devine will, Mr. Isaac Latshaw, of Reading township, in the 70th year of his
age. The deceased was a Minister of the Gospel, and a
zealous laborer in the vineyard of his Heavenly Father.
He has left behind him an aged and disconsolate widow, and a numerous family of
children, to mourn the loss of a kind and
affectionate husband and father. By his amiable and unassuming deportment, he
had endeared himself to all who knew him.
Society will long feel the loss it has sustained by the death of one of its most
useful and long tried citizens. He has now received the
end of all his hopes, the reward of all his toils, and joined in communion with
Saints and Angels, in singing praises to the Lamb.

Notes for Anna Fahnestock:
Source: "Brethren Heritage Along the Big Conewago", by Elmer Q. Gleim, who
states that Anna Fahnestock (June 26, 1763-
December 26, 1851,) was the daughter of Dietrich (1733-1816) and Esther Bauman
Fahnestock (1740-1792.) However, in reading
the will of Dietrich Fahnestock, he lists the names of 10 children, and none are
Anna, nor are any married to a Latshaw. The
book, "The Fahnestock Genealogy" states that Dietrich and Esther did, indeed,
have a daughter named Anna, but she was born born
31 Jul 1765, not 26 Jun 1763, and "must have died young, as she wasn't listed in
her father's will." This book goes on to state that
Isaac Latshaw's wife was _____ Snyder.
Possibly Anna 'Fahnestock' was married first to a Fahnestock and her maiden name
was Snyder?
