Raymond Clifford Langley's parents were Joseph Emmett Langley & Laura J Hendricks. 13 Jul 1909 TX - 25 Jan 1973 Marshall, Harrison County. His death certificate says father was Emmett Langley only and his mother's full name was Laura Jane Hendrix or Hendricks.

Raymond Langley 1908 - 07 June 1973 son of Charles Burton Langley and Mary Charlotte Williams who was sister of Jennie C Williams Mosley Lee. So Raymond Langley and Lela Lucille Lee were 1st cousins.

Jennie Lee and daughter Velma Lee were in Tyler, Smith Co in 1930. It appears Lela Lucille's father's first name was General, not a title, born in Alabama abt 1848.

Jennie Williams was previously married to James O Mosley had Mable Mosley 1895, Robert Mason "Rial" Mosley 1896 & Ernest J Mosley 1905 then Jennie C Mosley married General Taylor Lee 17 Aug 1910 in Gregg County and had Fay Lee 1911, Lela Lucille Lee 1913, Velma Lee 1916.
