from genealogy, 9 Jun 1902 Baltiore Sun. "A special dispatch
to the Sun from Washington last night says 'Mr Lawrence A Latchford, a
native of Baltimore County and one of the best-known Washington
policemen, died early this morning on a Southern railroad train en
route to Washington between Charlottesville and Gordonsville, Va.
"'Mr. Latchford was connected for some years with the Fifth precinct,
where he was detective prior to his recent retirement on account of ill
health, due to pulmonary trouble. About two months ago he went to Texas
to recuperate. For a while he improved. When it became apparent that he
would not recover he decided to return to Washington. The Police
Department had made arrangements to meet him at the station and take
him to Providence Hospital in an ambulance. It was greatly shocked when
a telegram came from Gordonsville announcing his death. The body was
brought to the city at 9:45 o'clock and removed to Riley's undertaking
"'Mr. Latchford was a railroad telegraph operator at Sheppard's
Landing, Md. before he became a policeman. He was a widower, but is
survived by two children. His parents live in Baltimore county, and
there are other relatives near Laurel.
"'The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock Monday morning from St.
Teresa's Church, Anacostia. Interment will be in Mount Olivet
