Now, James Marion Langston, appears to have married while still married to Anna/Annie. A marriage record in Hardin Co. Marriages, Vol 1, Pg 258A (Kountze, Hardin Co., TX), shows he married Lillian Nancy Lyons, 8 Jun 1891.

They had 5 children starting in 1892. He is listed as living in Rockland, Tyler Co., TX and is a butcher by trade. He died before June 1900 as Lillian is also listed as a widow. James Langston is buried in the Rockland Cem.

Does anyone have any info concerning Anna Kesinger while she was married to James Langston?

Thanks,

Sherry
