Amy Langley, born in or after 1755, was recorded in the FC in Franklin Co NC in 1790 and in the FC in Nash Co NC in 1800; records suggest that she (if Amy was a female) was the mother of Nathaniel Langley (Nathan Langley) and the grandmother of William Langley. She might have been the widow of David Langley, recorded in Franklin Co NC in Apr-May 1782 with James Mosby and June Bledsoe. The husband of Amy Langley (assuming Amy was a female) died in or before 1790, probably in Franklin Co NC.

2_A possible son, born in or before 1774;
3_A possible son born 1774-1790 (John Langley, born in or before 1787?)
Nathaniel Langley, probably born in or before 1768, married Elizabeth Joyner, daughter of John and Elizabeth Joyner, in July 1788. He and John Langley were recorded with William Baker Sr, William Baker Jr and many Joyners on 30 May 1795 at the estate sale of Samuel L Bottoms Jr. Nathaniel Langley died before 19 Feb 1796 in Nash Co NC. Elizabeth Langley was alive in Nash Co NC in 1844, stating she was 77 in 1845 (born about 1768) and stating that she married the father of William Langley, her oldest child, in June 1788.
1_William Langley (the only documented child of Elizabeth Joyner Langley), born 1788-1790, married Charity Baker, daughter o f William Baker Jr and Buly Bottoms,before 1816 and probably before 1814.
2_(Probably) Joyner Langley, born 1791-1793 (born about 1791 in 1850 FC, born about 1793 in 1860 FC).
3_1 female 10-16 (possible sister, born 1794-1800); 1810 FC
William Langley (the only documented child of Elizabeth Joyner Langley), the oldest child of Elizabeth Joyner Langley, was born 1788-1790 and married Charity Baker, daughter o f William Baker Jr and Buly Bottoms,before 1816 in Nash Co NC and probably before 1814. William Langley and Elizabeth Langley (son and mother) witnessed the will of John Joyner on 27 Mar 1810 in Nash Co NC. William Langley died before 12 Nov 1816 and as the name Charity was apparently not found in records it appears Charity Baker Langley preceded him in death (and William Langley may have married a second time before his death in 1816). Their only known son, German D. Langley, testified in court records on 12 Nov 1844: “. . . German D. Langley a resident of the County of Nash . . . Sayeth that he is about Twenty Eight years old and that his parents died when he was a child and that William Baker the husband of Buly Baker Raised him . . .” There was clearly a male the age of German D. Langley in the 1820 FC household of William Baker in Nash Co NC.
1_German D. Langley, born 1814-1816 in Nash Co NC, was apparently the only known child of William Langley and Charity Baker.
