Thank you for offering to look up information.My 2nd great grandfather moved his family to Madison Co., AR between 1875 and 1880.They appear on the 1880 Wharton's Creek, Madison Co., AR Census:
Briant 43[b 20 Sep 1836]
William 18[b 8 Dec 1861]
John 16[b 27 Aug 1864]
Joseph 12[b 4 Aug 1866]
Mary 9[b 1871]
Sarah 6[b 1874]
Emma 5[b 3 Mar 1875]
(Birth dates added by me.)Briant's first wife Susan Frances Russel must have died before this census was taken.
I believe all their children were married in Madison Co., AR.William married Nancy Emaline Dotson in Huntsville on 6 Aug 1882.
My great grandparents, John Henry Langford and Mary Francis Casey were married in about 1889.If you could find a more specific date, that would be great.
Joseph was married to Sarah Ellen Logue on 23 Jan 1890 on Drakes Creek, Madison Co., AR.
I am missing marriage dates for the girls: Mary to Jim Barnes; Sarah to Jim Brown; and
Emma to Henry Steele.
Briant Langford married a second wife (name unknown) and had two sons with her, Sam and Berry.If you can find this marriage and anything about this second family, I will really appreciate it.
Could you also check the 1890 Madison Co., AR Census for this family?I believe they all moved on to Oklahoma or Texas by 1900.
Thank you so much.Eileen Illum
