Thanks Paula and Bernie,
Mildred Livingston was my 2nd ggrandmother, her daughter Polly who married Modena F. Woodcock was my ggrandmother, and her son Martin Luther was my grandfather, his daughter Hattie is my mother. I am busy trying to gather together names and places that I want to research when we go to Arkansas next week.

Hi there Paula
Realtors have been showing my house non-stop of late and I haven't had a
free moment to digest all your wonderful material on the early Langstons -
but, just know that I have not forgotten you, okay?
But, I wanted to post what I have on the Nathan Langston family. Like
yourself, I have not been able to identify all of the children that
Goodspeed's attributes to Nathan and his first wife; Patty. Makes me think
it was probably daughters that we are missing. Don't you? Or some infants
that died young? Unless we come upon a Bible record; we may never know.
But, it seems to me that Kathryn Langston knew someone in one of the
branches that had a Bible record - I will check my notes to make sure; I
could be dreaming.
You and I agree on most all that you posted, Paula - with the exception of
the Jane Langston you have listed as a daughter of Nathan and Patty's and
Jane's marriage to a John Russell? My records show this Jane Langston was a
daughter of Susannah Beale's - not Patty Ware's.
So, for all it is worth - here is what I have - open for cussing and
discussing. I'll be back at you all later this afternoon?

We both know the discussions where some of these children are considered
Hightowers - and most of that is attributed to that disaster of a census
record in 1850. Mind you, I am not sure that it is Martha "Patsy"
Langston - a child from Nathan's first marriage - that was the one that was
married to the Hightower, remarried a Cunningham and left her children
behind in Arkansas and moved to Texas - it is just a guess on my part;
judging from the naming patterns of her Hightower children that for the most
part Nathan raised. So, just a guess, Paula.
Look this over and will catch up with you this afternoon, okay?
