Making Sense of the Census (Fording the Langs, at Present)

James H. Langford (b. abt. 1795, s/o James and __, d. 1882, Marion Co. KY, m. Jane Martin, Sep 1815, Albemarle Co. VA. He served in War of 1812, was a wheelwright and carpenter.

ABT. 1795–BIRTH IN ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VIRGINIA. See biographical sketch of son, Wilson N. Lankford, and 1860 Census notes, below. –shb 16 May 2007

A DESCENDANT OF JOSEPH AND MARY LANKFORD? That James H. Lankford is a descendant of my presumed ancestors, Joseph and Mary Lankford, is an educated guess on my part, based on the fact that James H. named his third and fourth (of twelve) children, Joseph and Mary. Wilson N., a later son of James H. Lankford, named his paternal grandfather as “James Lankford, Sr.” (see biographical sketch in Wilson’s notes). Was Wilson named after James Sr.’s wife’s maiden name? The generations and birth places work out well for James Sr. to be a son of Joseph and Mary, so I have tentatively made the connection. I of course seek additional verification. If I am able to verify this connection, then James H. Lankford’s father, James Sr., would be a (probably older) brother of my ancestor, Walker Lankford, b. abt. 1769, whom we have linked to Joseph and Mary, along with a daughter for whom we have no date. Joseph and Mary are believed to have been married about 1765, so there is room for this James to be a son. –shb 16 May 2007

BIRTH/FATHER IS ALSO “JAMES LANKFORD”/MARRIAGE TO JANE MARTIN/TWELVE CHILDREN/DEATH IN 1882: See biographical sketch of son, Wilson N. Lankford, in which he names his paternal grandfather as “James Lankford, Sr.”: “WILSON N. LANKFORD was born December 18, 1828. His father was a Virginian, born in Albemarle County, in 1795. He married Jane Martin in 1815, and two years later, with his wife and one child, came to Kentucky and located in Washington, now Marion, County. Here he pursued the trades of wheelwright and carpenter, in connection with the working of a small farm that he owned. His wife, Jane, died in 1873, aged seventy-five years. She was the mother of twelve children: William, James, Oliver, Joseph, Mary, Eliza, Wilson, John, Samuel, Charles, Nancy and Thomas. The last named was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion, and served under Gen. Wolford. James Lankford died in 1882, at his home in Marion County. [Note: The 1870 Census names Jane as seventy-five years old, so that she was that age in 1873 could be an approximation--shb.]

“James Lankford, Sr., grandfather of Wilson N., was a Virginian by birth and of English and Irish parentage. Two of his sons served under Gen. Smith in the war of 1812.

“Wilson N. Lankford was reared on a farm in his native county of Marion, . . . .” –shb 8 Feb 2006

ANOTHER NAMESAKE? James H. Lankford, b. 1795 (m. Jane Martin), son of James Sr. (whom I have positioned as a grandson of my presumed ancestors, Joseph and Mary Lankford), named his next-to-last of twelve children, “Nancy P.,” who was born in 1844. I now think that my ancestor, Walker Lankford, was an uncle to James H., b. 1795. Walker is listed next to Stephen Langford2 (son of Benjamin, whose first wife was Nancy Peyton) and family, in the 1830 Census of Pulaski County, Kentucky, though they lived some distance away, on different creeks. It is, therefore, not unlikely that James H. may have felt quite close to Stephen and, on learning of Nancy’s death before birth of his last child, named “Nancy P.” after Nancy Peyton? –shb 16 May 2007 [Note: All I know about Nancy Peyton Langford's death is that it was after 1810, so this is just musing about possibilities.] –shb 16 May 2007

A BROTHER JOHN? I have record of the marriage of a John Lankford [see my Legacy ID No. 66177] to Lacey Martin, 11 Jun, in abt. 1824, in Lebanan [Pennsylvania, I presume]. Could this be a case of Lankford brothers marrying Martin sisters? –shb 16 May 2007

1814, AUGUST 29-FEBRUARY 21, 1815–SERVED IN WAR OF 1812–ENLISTED FROM ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VIRGINIA/APPLIED FOR PENSION, IN 1850, FROM EDGAR COUNTY, ILLINOIS. Letter from Veterans Administration, Washington D.C., March 12, 1940, In response to a query from Miss Genevieve M. Potts, of Rockville, Maryland. This letter was included among notes compiled over forty years, by Genevieve (POTTS) DOLLE OBETZ, b. 1899, xeroxed and submitted to the Family History Library (Call No. USA/CAN 929.273/L263o, searched 23 Jun 2007, by shb (no page numbers–just collected notes, some in her handwriting): “Re: JAMES H. LANGFORD S. C. 5834, BA-J/MLB – Dear Madam: Reference is made to your personal request of recent date, for the War of 1812 record of James H. Langford.

“The data which follow in regard to James H. Langford were found in the papers of the claims for pension and bounty land under File No. S. C. 5834, based upon his service in the War of 1812.

“The date and place of birth of James H. Langford and names of his parents were not given.

“James H. Langford enlisted in Albemarle County, Virginia, and served from August 29, 1814, to February 21, 1815, as private in Captain Robert McCullock’s company of Virginia militia, stationed at Camp Carter in Virginia, where he was discharged.

“While a resident of Edgar County, Illinois, with post office at Paris in that county, the soldier applied December 2, 1850, for bounty land which was due on account of his service described above, and was allowed eighty acres of bounty land on Warrant 10765, under the Act of September 28, 1850. He applied April 4, 1855, while still living in Edgar County, Illinois, for additional land which was due for his service, and on that application was granted eighty acres of bounty land on Warrant 21886 [I think, the copy is smeared--shb], under the Act of March 3, 1855.

“James H. Langford was allowed pension, also, for his service in the War of 1812, on his application executed April 10, 1871, at which time he was aged seventy-six years [so b. about 1794--shb] and a resident of Grandview, Edgar County, Illinois.

“The soldier married September 7, 1835, in Albemarle County, Virginia, Jane Martin. No details were given in regard to her.

“If you desire information relative to the location of the bounty land granted James H. Langford, you should apply to the Commissioner of the General Land Office, Interior Department, this city, and furnish that official the number of each warrant, the acreage and date of the act under which issued.

“In order to obtain the date of last payment of pension, the name and address of the person paid and possibly the date of death of this soldier, you should write to the Comptroller General, General Acounting Office, Records Division, this city, and cite the following data: James H. Langford, certificate #5834, issued October 7, 1871, rate $8 per month, commenced February 14, 1871, Act of 14th February, 1871, Illinois Agency.

1820 CENSUS–A “JAMES LANKFORD” AND FAMILY ARE LISTED IN JACKSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE. Here is the letter I wrote the family about this, 18 May 2007:

“Hi, Bob (and others of Mt. Vernon Stephen’s branch of Langfords) and researchers:

“I believe I may have found your ancestor, ‘Flintlock’ Stephen2 in the 1820 Census of Jackson County, Tennessee (my reasoning outlined below). Of course there could be another Stephen Langford family with the same profile, so if you have found him elsewhere, in this census, please let me know. Going by indexes I have and my records, this is the only Stephen
and family who ‘fits’ this census.

“Of particular interest is the fact that Martin Lankford and James Lankford and families are in the same Jackson County, same census year. This James is of particular interest, as I may have linked a James Sr. and James H. Jr. as descendants of my ancestors Joseph and Mary Lankford, though there are some difficulties I am still trying to surmount with this analysis.
IF this James of Jackson County, Tennessee is one of the two Jameses descended from Joseph, and IF James was close to Stephen2, there in Jackson County, then this might explain how Joseph’s son Walker (my ancestor) ended up ten years later, in Pulaski County, listed right next to Stephen2 in the 1830 Census.

“Do you or anybody getting this have a clue about how and if Martin, James, and Stephen Lankford connect?

one free white male age 26-44 [This fits for Stephen2, son of Benjamin, son of Stephen, the Mt. Vernon settler, as I have him as b. 1788, so he would have fit into the range of those born 1776-1794--shb.] Also in the household is:

1820 CENSUS–A ‘CHARLES LANKFORD’ IS IN NELSON COUNTY, VIRGINIA. HeritageQuest on-line census image, accessed and transcribed, 16 May 2007, by shb, from home, via Provo, Utah Public Library:

No township listed, Nelson County, Virginia

one free white female age 10-15
one free white female age 26-44 [Charles' wife]
one person engaged in agriculture

[Note: No other Lankfords are listed in Nelson County, in 1820. Possibly James and Jane tied the knot four years earlier, in 1816 (after taking a license out earlier, in 1815), at invitation of relative Charles Lankford, in Nelson County?

1820 Census profile of James H. Lankford’s uncle, Walker Lankford, in Pulaski Co. KY:

three free white females under age ten
two free white females age 10-15
one free white female age 16-25
one free white female age 45 and over [Mary Polly, age 36-40 in 1820, so not quite a fit--perhaps a census error--shb]

So, in 1820 Walker and Mary/Polly had ten children, four sons and six daughters, whereas Charles and wife had six children, two sons and four daughters, with both couples falling in the same general age-range.

Langfords or Lankfords Who Served in the War of 1812

1812–SERVED IN WAR OF 1812 FROM NORTH CAROLINA?

LANGFORDS/LANKFORDS IN THE WAR OF 1812: I found a list of “Langfords & Lankfords in the Revolutionary War,” (alphabetized by first name), compiled by Mr. Robert Lankford, Sr., of Rutherford County, North Carolina (as posted at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~cmddlton/lgfdwr.html, accessed 1 May 2006, by shb). It has a subtitle, “LANGFORDS & LANKFORDS in the War of 1812.” I extracted all Langfords listed as having served in Virginia militias, during the War of 1812, trying to find out who the four Langford brothers were who served together, including Stephen Langford (m.
