Hi, You were mistaken, you are 14 years older than my father, I am Stephen II, b. 1981. Which University do you work for? I attend UMass Lowell. I looked up the 1900 census for Warren and he is living on Olive Ave in Chelsea, MA. With wife Charlotte and two children Warren Jr. 9 and Vera L. 11 yrs old. It also states that his parents are from Canada and hers are from Germany. He arrived in the United States in the year 1868, and being only 10 years old I doubt he came alone. My Alfred Langiell was in Nova Scotia during that year and never came to the United States at that time, so maybe he came with another brother or his parents.
On another note, I am confused as to when my Alfred was born. I have been given three different years which vary quite differently. First, the 1900 census says Feb. 1840. Secondly according to his death record which states his age, he would have been born April 1842. Lastly, on his naturalization records, he states his own birth (in writing) as Feb. 1847.
you will see that Alfred S. Langiell is part of a family of George and Abigail Langille. If this is true, then his birth could not have been 1847 because that would be 7 years after his older brother and make his mother 49 when she had him. I find this unlikely. Also, if your Warren born 1858 and my Alfred are in fact brothers, then I can rule out the idea that he is actually part of this family. Your search has brought new ideas to my family tree. I am going to look deeper into Warren's family and where he came from. If, in the meantime, you can track down information on the Brother who lived in Reading, maybe we can connect this information. Like I said before, Alfred's grandson lived in Reading up until his death in 1960, but Warren and Alfred III, were definitely not brothers. ~Stephensrlittle6@hotmail.com
