The date of birth I have for Oval (Ovale) Marie Langley (24 Nov 1874) is from Hebert’s Southwest Louisiana Records, Vol. 11, p. 226. The date of birth on his headstone is listed as 13 Nov 1875. Oval was baptized at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Chataignier, La. The early Mount Carmel Church records have since been moved to St. Anthony Catholic Church in Eunice. The address of St. Anthony church in Eunice is P.O. Box 31, Eunice, LA 70535 if you are in need of a copy of the birth certificate. Since the date of his baptismal is listed in the church records of 1874, I believe this is the more accurate date of his birth. If you will get in touch with me at I can provide much more information on the Langley family and also some information on the Fruge family. Ernest Langley and Emma Fruge had eight children; Valentin; Oval Marie; Valentine; Maxile; Deo Mell; Ozeme (E.O. - Ernest Ozeme); Gloria Marie and Oliver. I don’t know where you live but possibly if you check your library for the book “ The Langley Family of Southwest Louisiana,” by John A. Young, you will find much information on your Langley family roots.
