NAME. That Turner’s first name was “Richard,” as posted by Jim Stout (his e-address in Anderson’s blind file), at site, “Green Hills Pioneers,” at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~livcomo/Pioneers/index.htm, accessed 7 Aug 2007, by shb.

1829, JANUARY 20–BIRTH IN GREENVILLE, FLOYD COUNTY, INDIANA; OR, IN 1828, IN HARRISON COUNTY, INDIANA? PARENTS NAMED AS ANDERSON LANGFORD AND NANCY (BOSTON). As posted by Jim Stout (his e-address in Anderson’s blind file), at site, “Green Hills Pioneers,” at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~livcomo/Pioneers/index.htm, accessed 7 Aug 2007, by shb: “Richard Turner LANGFORD was born on 20 Jan 1829 in Greenville, Floyd, Indiana.

A BROTHER NAMED THORNTON/THORTON LANGFORD? See notes of Thornton Langford, my Legacy ID 68892, who was born in 1822, so is about the right age to be a brother of Richard Turner.
