NAME. That Turner’s first name was “Richard,” as posted by Jim Stout (his e-address in Anderson’s blind file), at site, “Green Hills Pioneers,” at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~livcomo/Pioneers/index.htm, accessed 7 Aug 2007, by shb.

1829, JANUARY 20–BIRTH IN GREENVILLE, FLOYD COUNTY, INDIANA; OR, IN 1828, IN HARRISON COUNTY, INDIANA? PARENTS NAMED AS ANDERSON LANGFORD AND NANCY (BOSTON).

He was buried on 17 Oct 1916 in Gees Creek Cemetery, Daviess, missouri. Parents: Anderson LANGFORD and Nancy BOSTON.” –shb 7 Aug 2007

A BROTHER NAMED THORNTON/THORTON LANGFORD? See notes of Thornton Langford, my Legacy ID 68892, who was born in 1822, so is about the right age to be a brother of Richard Turner. Both Thornton and Richard Turner lived in Grand River, Daviess County, Missouri, when the 1860 Census was taken (see below). –shb 7 Aug 2007

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.
