The Langs of Camden, SC - Excerpt from Historic Camden by Thomas J. Kirkland - 1905 / William Lang (I), son of Obadiah Lang and Elizabeth Wilson, his wife, was born near Wakefield, in Yorkshire, England (the shire whence Joseph Kershaw came), Feb. 16, 1746. He emigrated to the South Carolina colony in 1770, settled at Camden, and in 1775 married Sally Wyly, daughter of Samuel Wyly and Dinah Milhouse, his wife. He died in 1815 and his wife in 1817. A considerable part of the extensive landed estate of Samuel Wyly came to him through his marriage. Their children were:
1. James Wilson Lang, born 1776.
2. Elizabeth Lang, born 1779.
3. Samuel Wyly Lang, born 1782.
4. John Lang, born 1785.
5. Hannah Lang, born 1788.
6. William Wyly Lang, born 1790.
7. Thomas Lang, born 1793.
William W. Lang (II) first married Katherine Boykin, daughter of Burwell Boykin. His Camden residence, corner Campbell and DeKalb streets (lot 674), still stands. This lot had been conveyed in 1799 by John Kershaw to the town of Camden as a burial ground for "negroes, slaves, Indians, mulattoes and mestizoes," but had, presumably, never been so used, for in 1814 William W. Lang purchased it from the town and built his home there. This location, the most elevated point in the town, the most desirable and eligible for handsome buildings, has, in the strange mutation of time, become neglected and lost to such purposes.
After occupying a leading position in the affairs of Camden, Mr. Lang left for Alabama about 1845, in the wake of that movement westward which so depopulated the town in that decade. His second wife was Sarah, daughter of Duncan McRae, and their descendants are throughout the South, though none in Camden.
James Wilson Lang married Miss Murray, of Stateburg, S. C. Their children were two daughters, Misses Murray and Susan Lang, who lived together as old maiden ladies, and died unmarried. He was Clerk of Court for Kershaw County in 1836-37.
The Langs now residents of this county are all descendants of Thomas Lang (no. 7 above), who occupied an important place in the business, social and political affairs of this community. As a planter, on a large scale, he was successful, which of itself bespeaks energy and ability. His residence was in the "Magazine" quarter of old Camden, where he presided with social distinction, and often entertained the military companies at their musters on the green.
In the fierce days of Nullification he came to the front in the politics of the district. To explain his peculiar attitude would require the exploration of the intricacies of the party divisions of the time. His was an example of the adage that extremes meet. Although an ultra believer in State's rights, and the doctrine of paramount allegiance to the State, he would none of the Nullifier's profession of adherence to the Union while repudiating Federal laws. This paradox drove him to the Unionists, who were indeed his opposites in principle, and in the critical contests of 1830 and 1832 he was elected to the Legislature at the head of their ticket.
But when, in 1833, the Nullifiers proposed for enactment the drastic "Test Oath," requiring all State officers, civil and military, to subscribe an oath of paramount State allegiance—when the State, wrought to tension, watched the fate of this measure, which hung in the balance, to the consternation of his Unionist constituents, to his own undoing, he voted for it . Of his conduct Col. Shannon has said: "He in his vote adhered to his principles and took issue with his party, cast his vote sternly, quietly, with calm dignity and gracefully retired, knowing that the act closed his public career. He lived twice over to prove his faith by his works. In 1852 he stood again by the banner of State sovereignty and secession, and in 1860 he gave earnestly of his time and means to the great but now 'lost cause,' and had the satisfaction of greeting as his comrades in that last campaign, every survivor of the 'fifty-seven'"—an allusion doubtless to the number in the Legislature of 1833 who had opposed the "Test Oath." He died May 13, 1861, just as the guns of Sumter proclaimed the principles of the Test Oath.
Thomas Lang married Mary, daughter of Duncan McRae, March 29, 1815. She died Feb. 22, 1848. Their children were: (1) Sally Wyly Lang, who married Burwell Boykin, 1834, died May 17, 1889. (2) Duncan McRae Lang, born 1817, married Mary Honoria Logan, 1853, died 1856. (3) William Lang, born 1818, died 1820. (4) Mary Chesnut Lang, born 1820, married Dr. Ed. M. Boykin, 1841, only survivor of children of Thos. Lang. (5) Thomas Lang, born 1821, married Eliz. Rives, died 1867. (6) William Lang, second son of this name, born 1822, died 1824. (7) Harriet McRae Lang, born 1823, died, unmarried, 1892. (8) John Chesnut Lang, born 1825, died 1889. (9) Ed. Brevard Lang, born 1826, died 1865. (10) Flora McRae Lang, born 1828, died 1832. (11) Septimus Lang, born 1830, died 1831. (12) Theodore Lang, born 1832, died unmarried, at Memphis, Tenn., 1896.
