Dear Stephen - Warren Douglas Langiell of Malden was my paternal grandfather; he died before I was born (1940). His son, Warren Douglas Langiell,Jr. was my father.He was my mother, Elizabeth Kilton's first husband.They were divorced in 1940. I was born, the youngest of four siblings, shortly thereafter--there had been an effort at reconciliation.Both my parents remarried but neither had issue.I knew that my grandfather had a brother who lived in Reading and I know that my grandfather was born in Nova Scotia.My father was a builder and also served as an alderman in Malden during the 1940s.All of my sibs are living and in good health.My brother Donald has five children and thirteen grandchildren.I am the mother of three sons, the oldest of whom died, accidentally, ten years ago, today.Our middle son and his wife are expecting their first child in March and my youngest son is completing his Ph.D. in molecular biology.I am a university professor in Massachusetts.My father had a sister, Vera who is now deceased.She married a man named Fuller, I can't remember his first name.She had one child, Constance, who also married and had children.Her daughter is also deceased.My grandfather married Charlotte Martha Cook who was born in Dedham, Massachusetts.She lived to be nearly 100 years old.I began researching my father's family about four or five years ago, when I was contacted, through my stepmother, by a cousin whose maiden name was Berg.She lives in Sacramento, California.From what my mother told me of my grandfather (the harness maker)he was a wonderful man.I guess we must be related--probably second cousins; although I see that I am fourteen years older than you.My father was nearly fifty when I was born; my oldest brother WDL III is in his late seventies.My father died in 1978; he was then 87 years old.He, too, died accidentally; he was repairing his greenhouse roof and slipped on the ladder and fell through the glass.He lived about a year, but was considerably weakened. Obviously, aspasia is not my real name.Thank you for the information, you sent me.At least now I have an idea of which branch of the Langille family we are descended from.
