Name-SpellingsA variation of the spelling of the LANGFORD surname found in our research was Lankford.5

Death*after 1 June 1880She died after 1 June 1880, probably in Anderson County, Kentucky. Her Find a Grave memorial page reported her date of death as 29 January 1880, a year we know is not correct because she was alive when she was enumerated on the 1880 census, which had an effective date of 1 June. The photo of her gravestone, attached to her memorial, is difficult to read and, to us, could be 1883 or 1886. In either case, she was a teenager when she died.1,7,5
