If anyone is going to be at the Greenville Library and feels like helping me with an obituary, I would appreciate it so much!

Frank Coleman Langston
The Greenville News, May 19, 1960 Page 34
(age 72, Ware Shoals)

I am trying to find the Frank Langston who was the brother of William Langston and uncle to Marvin Langston my great-grandfather. I am also hoping this will lead to Frank and William's parents.

Thanks in advance,
Missy

Just as an fyi - the Greenville Co Library also has the death certs for this time frame if he died in SC. Have you checked ancestry.com for his parents?

Have you considered James Frank Langston who died in Anderson County, SC June 11, 1941? Pendleton is in Anderson County.

Is there a way to search the vital records from a Mac? I see the Greenville library has an index, but it requires a plugin that I don't have... I'm from Orlando, but I'm going to try to take a trip this summer and visit. Hopefully that will give me some time in the library too.

I found William's death certificate on Ancestry, but the image is so very light that I almost can't read it. I believe it says 'not given' for both parents =(

Oh well, the hunt is half the fun!

Yes, thank you! I have made a connection that is also researching that name, but so far it looks like we don't have a match. I actually sent off for that obit last week, before I knew that it might not the right one. He probably fits into my family tree somehow, so it will still be useful info.

I just realized that Ancestry has not updated the web url for Greenville County Library obit index. Below is the current url.
