This copy of a Bible record was sent to me by B.C. LANGSTON, Jr. of
Raleigh, N.C. who obtained it from the owner of the bible Evelyn
Langston PHILLIPS of Kinston, N.C., with his permission to contribute
the record. On the record itself it states that it was copied from the
original Family LANGSTON Bible by Della Rhodes Langston and given to
Evelyn Langston Phillips of Kinston, N.C. in 1954.

[Note: The LANGSTON family lived in Lenoir Co., around the Contentnia
area, since the early 1700's. --ssm]

[Editor's Note: The order of the records imply reorganization by the
original transcriber, and possibly some paraphrasing and/or annotating
of the material. Some additional reformatting was necessary in order to
make the entries readable in a text-only file.--ER]

Was wondering if you have any connections to Craven Jones that married Piety Moore. Both were born in Lenoir County, NC. Craven b. abt. 1810 and Piety, 1811.
They later moved to TN.
Thank you,
LIsa Jones

Hi, I am researcing Brice Jackson who married Mary Eliza Langston on 8/8/1849. I believe Brice was born around 1807 in either N.C. or Tenn. I believe he and Mary Eliza are buried in the Kinston, N.C. area. I do not know Mary Eliza's dob but believeit to be around 1830-1833. They had the following children: 1. Mary Winnifred b: 8/20/1850; 2.William Bryant B:5/11/1853 d:11/3/1853; 3. Jacob Franklin b:10/9/1854 d:around 1932 married a lady named Lula ???, they had 7 children who died in infancy; 4. Edward Willis b:11/10/1856 d:5/9/1905 married Marcenia??? had 9 children; 5.James Alonza b:3/15/1859 d:1/27/1913 married Carrie??? no children; 6.Brice Erastus b:7/15/1861 d:3/3/1908 of a gunshot wound)married Rebecca Rhodes in Colleton County,S.C. They had 6 children. This is my line as my grandmother is their oldest child, Bessie Lee Jackson Bazzle; 7.Sarah Elinor b: 5/31/1864 d:193 or 1934 married Charlie E. Edwards had 5 children; 8. Rebecca Ann Myrtle b:4/9/1868 d:2/22/1936 buried: Jacksonville, Fla. married John L. Hubon? no children, reared Mary Jackson Cobb 5th child of Brice E. Jackson and Rebecca Rhodes. She gave me this information before her death. This is all the information I have and I welcome any information on the Jackson/Langston lines from Kinston, N.C. area

I have Mary Eliza Langston daughter of Jacob Langston and Mary Connerly. Jacob would be son of Absalom Langston and Dolly Jackson. Jacob born 1795 and died 1885. Mary Eliza Langston born around 1830 siblins Amanda, Nancy Ann, Bryant Harry, Sylvester James,and Thomas Henry Langston.

Mary Eliza married Brice Jackson. There are some Jacksons in the cemetery at Sharon UMC, located corner of Sharon Church Road and Cameron Langston Road in Lenoir Co.

Thanks, I checked the cemetery listings and could not find Brice and Mary Eliza Jackson there, but did find Eliza's brother and wife and her parents, Jacob and Mary Langston. I have the Langston line, but I am at a dead end for information on Brice Jackson and his ancestors. I have his line down but nothing before him. Thanks for your help. Cindyb
