Re: Genealogy Trail: Napier/Langston/Watkins Famil
In Response To: Genealogy Trail: Napier/Langston/Watkins Family ()
John M. Langston is cited as a charter member of St. Louis's Eta Boule' Sigma Pi Phi fraternity. This must be the brother of Carroll N. Langston.
I believe that John Mercer Langston had only one daughter, which was Nettie. I read an article about her a week ago, which mentioned the affection her parents especially her father had for her as their only child. So the Langston brothers must not be Cong. J.M. Langston's grandsons.
A Langston Hughes Biography (which I formerly owned and purchased 3 years ago, so it must be a fairly newer one) had a section which discussed his genealogy. He was also related to John Mercer Langston. You might find some clues there.
