My great-grandfather was E.M. Lankford (6/12/1860-9/5/1899), known as Matt and sometimes as Matthew. In the 1880 Morgan Co., AL census he was listed as Ezrey M. Langford. He was probably born a Langford, and he may have been born in Russell County, as his family did have property there during the 1850's.
Can anyone locate birth records to confirm or not confirm this birth in Russell Co., AL? I'm trying to document with certainty who his parents were. I believe they were Robert A. Langford and Mary Ann E. Roberson Langford, who later married Nathaniel Burton. Robert's and Mary's son Terrel (listed in the 1860 Muscogee Co., GA census as Tennell) was born in Columbus, GA in 1857. Basically, I have indirect family and census evidence that Terrel and Matt were brothers. The family owned property in Barbour and Russell Counties, AL.
I would appreciate any help.
