Bob Burton I am especially trying to get this information to you as you seem to be a thorough researcher. 1. Edmond Langford/Lankford sold to William Burton land on 96 Creek near Saluda, bounded by Reeves Martin, Wiley Glover et al. land he inherited from his father Nathaniel and Nathaniel from his father in 1800.William Burton had a court tussel with Glover because Glover squatted on the land claiming he did not know it was owned by someone. That claim of Glover's makes me think that the Langfords did not live on this parcel of land and resided elsewhere. Virginia or Georgia?
2. Edmond Langford/Lankford is named as guardian of the orphan of John Burton in Edmond's Liberty County 1805 Land Lottery listing. I have not found John Burton in Liberty Co. and am still up a tree with hounds nipping at my feet. The LDS microfilm that I have viewed (several years ago) did not have any records of the guardianship of Edmond for the Burton orphan. I did find somewhere in Georgia (tax list?) a woman named Elizabeth Burton who could have been the widow of John Burton and the sister Elizabeth Langford of Edmonds.
Edmond began his migration to Greene Co. Mississippi about 1811 and seems to have traveled to and fro as he shows up in records along the way...that is Baldwin Co. Ga and Mobile and Washington Co. AL.
Everywhere I seeks Langford/Lankford families I trip over Burton, expecially in VA.
These are some records you can think about and perhaps find answers to. I do not expect to be able to travel to GA and VA and SC to dig up information in archives and college libraries.
If you find anything that sheds light upon John Burton of Georgia, I will appreciate your sharing it with me. Thank you Bob for your revealing postings on the Burtons.
