Looking for information on BENEDICT LANHAM & wife NELLY (PENELOPE) ??. From information we have Benedict is suppose to be the son of DANIEL LANGHAM & MARY ABBOT. There is a conflict as to date of birth! The son of Daniel & Mary (Abbot) Langham, was born 1708 in Gloucester Co,Va. His name was spelled BENEDICK. Could our Benedict be a son of this Benedick Lanham?
The Benedict Lanham we have was born in 1748 in Va. He eventually located in Albmarle, Amhurst and Nelson Cos, Va. He & Nelly had 7 known children, they were:
BENJAMIN, JOSEPH, JOHN (husb'd line), SALLY, SUSANNA, PATSY, and WILLIAM. All these children born probably bet 1768 and 1780. Only have the dates for 3, and they was 1773, 1774, and 1780!
JOHN LANHAM (b) abt 1773 Va, (d) unk, (mar'd) 1793 Amhurst Co,Va to LEDDY SMITH (b) abt 1773 (d) unk, the dau of CHILDERS & FANNY (??) SMITH. Many children of this family was in Nelson Co,Va then went to Clay, Kanawha, Putnam and Jackson Cos,WV.
Would like contact with anyone who may have information on any of these families, or who can help me to sort the confussion out. Any help, leads and/or information will be greatly appreciated. PLEASE E-Mail me. Thank You.
