Family Bible - Langford/Hosey

Started by Martha Frances Taylor Langford and passed down to my Great Grandmother, Lela Dever Ranney Langford.

Edited by Roswell D. Hitchcock, DD. LL.D - Late President Union Theological Seminary, NY and published by J. A. Whilmore & Co.  The publishing date page was apparently lost or removed during the 1952 rebinding of the Bible.


Credit for these magnificent documents are given to all of my Wade and Cox cousins.  Thank you for digging this out for us for me to photograph.  It is interesting to note that Martha Frances Taylor Langford also dedicated much information on the children of her first marriage to James R. Hosey.

At this time I feel that is probable that the father of George Langford, Sr. (the Great Grandfather of Benjmain D. Lankford) was this John Langford.  These land related documents will be but one element of proving or disproving the next generations.

Letter Regarding Benjamin D. Lankford to Jeff Davis from Seth Warner



Response Letter from Seth Warner to Jeff Davis.  I have chosen to censor the  name/address in the center as it is of a living descendant of Benjamin D. Lankford.  For those of your that don't know, Seth Warner did some significant Langford/Lankford research in the Warren County, NC area.  He like many of us (myself included) would like to see some sort of disposition of the 55 1/2 acres given to a Benjamin D. Lankford in John Langford's will (see above for copy of will).

Note:   The above documents are letters that Nola Duffy obtained copies of.  They are genealogically important for the Langford lines in Warren County, NC as they are genealogical reflections from a testimonial.  Nola was kind enough to give me permission to post these documents.  While the Langford information is based on his personal knowledge and memory, he did rely on another source for the earliest  Pegram information which later research has shown to be inaccurate. As for the copy we both now have, the original is in the hands of:  James R. Thomas II <>
