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

Philip Langford, Black, b. 1820, in Virginia, a Baptist Minister, m. Frances, Black, b. 1810, in Kentucky; 1880 Census, in Missouri

I am extracting black Langfords born in Kentucky, just in case they were slaves of some of my white Kentucky Langfords. In this case, the name of Philip’s wife “Frances” is of interest. –shb 16 Jul 2007

1880 CENSUS–“PHILIP LANGFORD” IS BLACK, AGE SIXTY, A “BABTIST MINISTER,” BORN IN VIRGINIA, BOTH PARENTS BORN IN VIRGINIA. HE LIVES WITH WIFE, “FRANCES LANGFORD,” BLACK, AGE SEVENTY, BORN IN KENTUCKY. NEXT DOOR LIVES HIS SON, “ANDREW LANGFORD,” BLACK, AGE FORTY-THREE, BORN IN MISSOURI, HIS FATHER BORN IN VIRGINIA, HIS MOTHER BORN IN KENTUCKY, WITH WIFE, NANCY, AGE FORTY-ONE, HER MOTHER BORN IN KENTUCKY, AND THEIR EIGHT CHILDREN.
