Meet James Raymond Langston
Grandpa as I would call him was born the 21st of January in 1917 to the happy parents of Roscoe H. Langston and Aline Marie Smith. Born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri just like his mother but Roscoe was born in Gravel Hill, Missouri. Grandpa was one of five children who were all born and raised there in Missouri. He attended Cape Central and a member of the library club and football team.
He married Lena Katherine Elizabeth Hopper, who I introduced you to last week. United in marriage on the 18th of December in 1938 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. They had five children, four daughters and one son. His father was an overseer on the county roads as a result Grandpa also went into the same line of work.
