250. Ruth ADAMSON7 was born on 23 November 1821 in Ohio.1,7 She died on 14 September 1886 at the age of 64 in Howard County, Indiana.1

[I doubt that Ruth was born in Ohio, but all the census information says she was. The family could have lived there for a brief time.]

Marriage recorded Delaware Co Book C-1, p.25. The image on FamilySearch states that license was issued on the 27th of November, 1839 - the marriage took place on the 28th, officiated by Jesse Stout, JP who made his return on the 16th of December.

Langley lived in Wayne Co IN as early as June of 1823. In the 1830's they purchased several tracts of land in Madison Co IN. The book "History of Delaware Co IN" states that Jonathn Langley, his father, was one of the first settlers buying land on 11 Apr 1836. In 1850 they were in Honey Creek Twp, Clinton Co IN. The Adamson families seemed also to have lived in Wayne Co, then Delaware, and Howard Counties. Both families intermarried with Garners and Crousores.

Curtis is buried Albright Cemetery, Kokomo, Howard, IN. His stone almost appears to read Curtis "B" Langley, but I suspect that is due to wear and tear.

Obituary (Contributed)
Martin Langley was born in the village of Russiaville, Howard County, Indiana, June 14, 1845 and departed this life at the dawn of the New Year's Day morning 1919, aged 71 years, 6 months, 18 days.
In early childhood he removed with his father's family to a farm east of Oakford which was the old family homestead for years.
In the Civil War times as soon as he was old enough he enlisted in the 130th Indiana Volunteer
Infantry. He was ever faithful to duty as a soldier.
He was united in marriage to Rebecca A. Caproon, September 8, 1867; to this union were born six children, five sons and a daughter, the eldest son and the daughter died in infancy. He is survived by his widow and four sons, Elbert, William, John, and Charles. Three sisters also survive him, Mrs. Caproon, Elwood; Mrs. Applegate, Kokomo, and Mrs. Cox, Alexandria, La.
He was always of a cheerful and genial disposition, self-sacrificing, looking ever after the comfort and best interest of his family.
He endeavored to do the right thing, holding to the view of a man living out his belief rather than talking about it.
During his long illness he was patient under great suffering. He realized that the end was near but met it calmly. He was ready to make the change.
Father dear has heard the call
That must come to one and all
May Heaven's sweetest benediction fall
On Father.
