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

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. Lydia Parent, father of Pleasant Shields Langfords). With hope that compiling regiments and states served from might help identify other Langfords as relatives, I also compiled Langfords serving in the War of 1812 from other states:

  1. Howdy. The War of 1812 seems to be a very important and hot topic recently on several blogs. For those that are not aware, Ancestry.com has recently added a War of 1812 Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Index listing. This document proved to be instrumental for me and my Benjamin D. Lankford. There are numerous Langford’s listed in this index, from NY, to GA, etc. I would highly recommend you take a look if you subscribe to Ancestry.com. If not, I am sure someone would be willing to do a search for you for the pertinent facts in case you are considering ordering a copy of one of these records. NARA is about to SIGNIFICANTLY increase the costs of ordering these in the near future, so if you are after these records, NOW is the time.

  2. James Langford in Jackson County, is a brother to John “Jack”, Stephen and Rufus Wiley Langford. This is my line, through John. James married Polly Holman. John served in the war of 1812, his wife Mary “Polly” Crane received a widow’s pension. Family tree DNA lists a descendent of Rufus Wiley with haplogroup I1a.

  6. Hello there, I do believe your site could be having internet browser compatibility
    issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!

  7. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year
    and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.

    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  9. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

  10. El controlador de audio, como en casi todos los portátiles, había que ejecutarlo directamente, por lo que decidí utilizar el de su página de soporte , ya que el backup que realiza My Drivers no empaqueta los ejecutables. Solo le queda la instalación de los programas que habitualmente les pongo, más alguno que el cliente solicita, en este caso tan solo fue el BS Player También configurar la hora y desactivar algunas funciones del windows que no queremos que intervengan en su futuro uso.
