Re: Langley's from Durham, N.C.
Since June 2000, notice how no one answered John L. Langley, nor has made any correction to Texas-Doris's claim that somehow a New Jersey LAngley (Joseph) resurfaced as a LOngley in Virginia "from" Hunterdon County, NJ. (Was this directly-- in 1764 -- or with stops in between? How old was Joseph then?)
And what SOURCE said this Joseph was son of New Jersey's Mary Chew and Thomas Langley? Why does Doris detail Mary Chew's parentage when there is NO birthdate, place, nor other proof that any son was ever born to them? Virtual tomes have been written on Chew genealogy, yet not one of them says our Thomas and their Mary had any children.
This Thomas died young, and his Will refers mainly to the cattle he gave to his wife. Why would he not give even one cow, or dollar, to any son?Mary's dripping-rich sister (ALSO childless) then died not long after, pledging bucks to siblings, nieces AND nephews, yet not mentioning ANY nephews born to her poor, widowed sister.Hmmmmm.
Since private queries to "ourtexasfamily" (who obviously is NOT "ourjerseyfamily") have yielded nothing, today I'm trying a public one.Until response comes, please refer LAngley queries regarding NJ, DE and SE Pennsylvania, to this site, with a copy to [email protected] (responsible) hunting!--- Delaware Dolores (LANGLEY)
