Paging Bob Langill....

Greetings Bob: (and all)

On the occasion of my father's birthday last week, we spent a couple of hours reading over this Genealogy Forum. Several of your board posts caught my father's attention... who, for many years, has been tracing our family's lineage. He has traced it as far back as 1715.

We are direct descendants of David Langill, born outside of Montbeliard, France, January 19, 1715. He died in Tatamagouche N.S., July 1804.

The "Isaac Langill" you mention in this post is my great, great, great grandfather: http://genforum.genealogy.com/langille/messages/134.html

In fact, my great grandfather ("Grampy Ike") was named after him. He was born in Tatamagouche in 1873 to William & Jane (Donaldson) Langill -- one of six children. He spent most of his adult life in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Died in Florida in 1969.

What we find odd is the addition of an "e" to our surname. We're trying to determine WHEN this change occured... and why. Do you have any insight into this?

If anyone else happens to know the answer, please post or drop me an e-mail. We would enjoy hearing from you!

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Glenn
