Elder Langford

Obituary of W. Bed. Langford, Georgia.

On the night of November 27 the soul of W. Bed. Langford peacefully and quietly "crossed the bar and put out to sea," having abiding faith in the Master's care. Mr. Langford was born April 14, 1848, in Oconee County, Ga. As a lad of sixteen in July, 1863, he enlisted in the Confederate army, Company A, 4th Georgia Militia, General Phillips's brigade, General Smith's command, to battle for the beloved cause. He received his baptism of fire in the battles of Atlanta, Griswoldville, and vicinity, serving gallantly until the surrender, when he returned to his home. He resumed his trade of wheelwright and carriage maker and also engaged in agricultural pursuits and merchadising, in which he was successful and accumulated some property. Always evicing an active interest in affairs of his town and Church, he was man esteemed by his fellow citizens for the many honorable traits of his sturdy, self-reliant character. On November 29, 1867, he was married to Miss Ellen Elder, and to them were born six daughters, three of whom, with their mother, the companion of his youth and age survive him.
