I think I can help you with some of the people you referred to in your post. David Langston was married to Sarah (Sally) Askew. They were the parents of William Askew (W. A.) Langston who was married to Elizabeth Evans Hargrove. The 1851 Lawrence County census shows David and Sally, ages 25 and 18 respectively, living, evidently, next to Sarah Hargrove, age 40. The Langstons are listed as family 174, the Hargroves as 175. Living with Sarah Hargrove were:
Hargrove Berry 21
Hargrove Mary 23
Hargrove Frances 18
Hargrove Floyia ? 16
Hargrove Crucy ? 72
Berry (Benny, Benjamin?) was listed as a farmer and lists his birthplace as Mississippi. The others, Mary,
Frances, Floyia? list their birthplaces as Georgia. Crucy was born in North Carolina. As far as I know, neither David nor W. A. served in public office; however, my information on them is incomplete. W. A. Langston is my 2great grandfather which makes Elizabeth my 2great grandmother. I have been looking for her parents, so you have filled in some of that missing information.
In addition, I know that W. A. and Elizabeth's daughter or granddaughter married a Sheppard. I am also related to the Buckleys, but don't at this time know the relationship to the Buckley listed here. At some time in the 1870s, a whole group of people from Silver Creek evidently moved to Texas (Langstons, Sheppards, Buckley) and settled near Frost and Corsicana where they lived and died. Elizabeth is bured in Kerens with her daughter and her Sheppard in-laws. Another daughter, Fannie Langston Rogers-Jones, my great grandmother, is buried in Frost. If you are a member of Ancestry.com, you can see what little I have on them. My tree is under Legan Family Tree 29mar11. I would appreciate any other information you might be willing to share with me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
