Desperately need help! Need father of Richard Langford, d. 1860, Loachapoka

I am desperately looking for the father/parents of Richard Langford. He is my 4th-great grandfather. My lineage goes as follows:

Father - John Hughes Langford; Grandfather - William Alexander(Bill)Langford; Great-Grandfather - Charles A.(Charlie/Charley)Langford; 2nd Great-Grandfather - Henry Lee Langford; 3rd Great-Grandfather - Henry Norman Langford; and then, 4th Great-Grandfather - Richard Langford.

Richard was born in 1772 in Hanover, VA. Married Amelia Soper (dau. of Zadock Soper) in Maryland in 1801. They had numerous children, including Henry Norman, Ann Turner, Martha, John T., Albert G., Elizabeth, Camilla, & Rutha Ann, Resided in Maryland and also, Washington, DC before settling in Georgia, in close proximity to Euclid Langford and wife, Elizabeth. After Euclid's death, served in various copacities to his widow, Elizabeth. At this time, there was also a Henry Langford in the same area, who had been born in VA, married a Nancy Patterson in 1809 and died in 1819. I cannot prove any relation to this Henry or to Euclid/Elizabeth - only speculating. Richard then settled in Alabama, near Loachapoka, on former Creek Indian land I believe was granted to him by the gov't. Richard served in the Maryland Militia, Extra Battalion during the War of 1812. He also worked in some capacity, building/rebuilding the Capitol Building in Washington, DC, during early 1800s. His second wife was Nancy Heath, married in Geogia in 1824. They also had numerous children, including Samuel T. Richard, Amenda E. N., William J., Robert Watts, Amanda M., & Ann Elizabeth. he died in 1860 in Loachapoka, Alabama, & is buried in the Loachapoka Cemetery.

I need any help that I can get! Thanks so much. I can be reached at
