I believe that Royal Langsdon was the son of whoever was not the father of Charles, if that makes sense. Otherwise, he and Charles would be brothers and he would have married his neice.

    Hi Spotisadog,

    I am a descendant of Tekel Tanner. The Tanners are one of the “mystery” lines on my mother’s side of the family. I had the Charles, Royal and Demaris Langsdon names but precious little else. Tekel had at least five children however I’m not sure if Demaris is the mother of all five. Let’s share info?

      I would be happy to share but I don’t really know that much about the Tanners. The Langsdon are just a collateral line. I couldn’t stand that there was no good information on the internet about them and spent a little time researching them. Anyway, I came across Tekel Tanner sort of by accident. There is not that much out there. Gary Tanner is the one that had the wedding date on them but I haven’t verified that. Wish I could be of more help!

    John Langsdon received certificates for providing equipment and supplies during the Revolutionary War – Commissioner’s book IV p.237
    Claims – Virginia-Powhatan County, Library of Va Archives
    John and Frances dau Julia Langsdon m. Edwrd Branch moved to Butler Co., Oh(land transaction signed by both husband and wife in 1821 & 1823 but no wife signature in 1834). The 1810 census puts them in Va while the 1820 & 1830 census puts them in Ross Twp, Butler Co., Oh so Julia died betw 1830 – 1834. They had four children. Edward was the son of Edward Garner Branch & Elizabeth. Edward Garner’s line can be traced back to John Baraunche b. 1437 in Berkshire, England.
