In Reply to: Brule Point or Black Langilles by Ray Haddigan of 327

Hi Ray,

My name is Katharine Langille and I am a direct decendant of Jean Jaques David, aka, James Langille, the "Black Langille" of Brule Point. My understanding is that James was the adopted son of David Langiile, one of the three brothers who immigrated aboard the Sally in the summer of 1752.

Do you realize that this year, 2002, is the 250th anniversary of our ancestors arrival in Canada? Something to celebrate, I would imagine! I decided to celebrate by reclaiming my heritage and my name. Since I am recently divorced, I returned to using my maiden name this year. So glad I did!

I am a 6th generation Canadian, which makes my kids 7th generation Canadian. This is also something to celebrate!

I own a copy of the book, The Shepherds of Markland, by Scott Winston Teal. I bought it from Scott in 1992. My uncle, Fred Langille, knew about Scott, and took me to meet him and purchase the book. Scott took many hours researching this material. The problem with being a "Black Langille" is: technically we are NOT Langilles, although after so many generations, what else are we?

I would love to hear from any other relatives "out there"! My father left Malagash at the age of 16 and joined the army, came west and met my mother. My heart is in Nova Scotia!

Katharine Langille
