Hi Harry

Thanks for your response. I don't have an honest answer for you on the relationship if any to Henry Carlton Lang.
I strongly suspect that the lang's in Maine and in the Portland area before my James arrived around 1870 had some sort of connection. The older Lang's may have been Aunts and Uncles and the younger ones (his age) born in the 1840's or early 1850's cousins. I know that there was an Andrew who I suspect was brother to James living in Portland and he married in Portland around 1871. I think my Great Grandfather James Lang came into the country shortly before that wedding which is why he probably came for and stayed afterwards.
I located James in the 1883 Portalnd City Directory as a Laborer with a house at Deering Point near the bridge. There is also an Izatus Lang carpenter house Deering Point.
I also thing the Lang Company in Portland had something to do with my Lang's but I don't have a good answer for that either. I think it was an Edward Lang that owned E.M. Lang Company and Edward was also in or had a house at Deering Point. Does any of this connect with your Lang's?
