K. S. Jatar was the eldest son of Shriram Bhikaji Jatar. He was born on August 6, 1871, and died in 1951.
Nothing much is known about his childhood, which he spent in the then CP & Berar with his father who was in the education department. Being the eldest son and with a large number of siblings after him who had to be looked after, his father (Baba) shrewdly interrupted his education and much against his will, prevailed on Bapurao to join the Covenanted Civil Service (CCS) at an early age of 22 years before he finished his graduation. His first posting was as an attaché to the Resident of Hyderabad, then based in Amraoti. He was married two years earlier to Uma Bhopatkar.
By the dint of his merit, he was elevated to assistant commissioner as this link shows
This is a sample of a page which mentions him from the above URL.
Young Bapurao imbibed a great deal from his father who taught him the ropes. After his father’s death in 1899, he looked after his mother (Aaisaheb) and his siblings. Guided by his mother and by dint of his efforts, Bapurao learnt to be a first-class administrator and acquitted himself very well in his professional as well as private life.
He was married to Uma Jatar née Bhopatkar and the couple had nine children – four sons and three daughters and had a fruitful and happy family life.
In chronological order the names of his children (now all deceased) are: Tatyasaheb (Raghunath Jatar), Appasaheb (Vasudev Jatar), Babukaka (Shantaram Jatar), Kamalatai (Kamala Thakur née Jatar), Ani Garde née Jatar (Anusaya), Chani (Chandrabhaga Jatar who died before marriage), Banutai (Sarojini Inamdar née Jatar), Anna (Damodar Jatar), Sushilatai (Sushila Nanal née Jatar).
The following is his obituary. Not sure which newspaper it was published in but must have been published in the leading English newspaper at that time. It also appeared in Marathi but that is not available with us.
He also founded the Jatar Club at Durg
