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

James E. Langford (b. 1827, NC or TN, m. Mary __), of , Gibson, Tennessee

FATHER J. E LANKFORD, ID 66959? I have, in my database, a J. E. Lankford, whose wife is named Millie. They are of North Carolina, where this J. E. Langford was born (according to one census), and there is enough age difference for J. E. to be an early son. This J. E. may have been following family tradition, when he named his first son, John (see 1860 Census, below). –shb 22 Aug 2006
