My mother was a Langley. Her name is Lahoma M Langley Wilson, her father was George Langley, George's father was James Ernest Langley. I have a book that was written that talks about the Langley's in Georgia. The author also has a new book coming our soon. I believe his name is Don Shadburn, but I'm not positive. If interest I will get the book and send you the exact info. I communicated back and forth with the author for a period of time. He writes about the Cherokees of Georgia. I would have to pull my info out to give you a more detailed line back from James. I know that James did not leave Georgia when the Georgians ran the Cherokees out of Georgia. James most definitely looks Native American and how he got around the militia that was killing and burning the Cherokees out is a mystery. I in the past taught Cherokee History for the Cherokee Nation but with the new Chief that doesn't want to acknowledge any of the accomplishments of Chief Smith the free program is over. James married Sallie Ann Bean, who's mother was Francis (Fannie) Timberlake, her father was Charles and his father was Richard who's mother was Sakinney the daughter of Ostenaco. Richard was the offspring of Sakinney and Lt. Richard Timberlake who took the 3 Cherokee's to England and Ostenaco was one of them. James was a travelin' man, Sallie stayed home and raised the children, tended the farm and provided medicine to other Cherokees. She was a renown Indian Doctor.
