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

Robert P. Langford (b. abt. 1826, m. Mary or “Polly” Price), of Mt. Vernon, Rockcastle, KY

1860 CENSUS–“ROBERT LANGFORD” IS AGE THIRTY-FOUR, LIVING WITH WIFE “MARY” AND TWO SONS, IN MT. VERNON, ROCKCASTLE, KENTUCKY. HeritageQuest on-line image, accessed 3 Feb 2006, by shb, via Godfrey Memorial Library:

[Note: Other Langfords I found in the 1860 Census of Mt. Vernon, Rockcastle, Kentucky were B. R. P. Langford, age 30. and wife Martha; James Langford, 27, and wife Mary A.; Milton R. Newcomb, son of Moses and Stacy (Langford); and Wm. Langford, age 45, and wife Nancy–all Robert’s siblings? Not far from the Robert and Mary Langfords live Gattliffs who are black and mulatto. This is of interest, because Mary and Sally, two daughters of my ancestors Joseph and Mary Langford, both married white Gatliffs–shb.]
