The Langdale line, Langdale Family Tree

It is the sole purpose of each genealogy page is to share the information I have with others. I have only included my direct lines, though I do have additional information on other branches. Some of my personal lines are rather extensive. Should you see a name that fills in a 'leaf' on your tree, please feel free to contact me.

My paternal grandmother, Esther Zella (nee Langdale) Kuba, is the leadoff for these branches of my family tree.

The Langdale family tree has three main branches - the Langdale's, and the Ames' and Northrup/Northrop's lines. For simplicity sake, it can be divided into tiers. The first tier is the Langdale family. The second tier consists of their family ties by marriage to the Ames family. Lastly, the third tier contains the roots of an additional family, that by marrying into the Ames line, are therefore joined into the Langdale line. These are the Northrup/Northrop's (the spelling of the surname changed from Northrup to Northrop at the sixth generation).

The Ames' join our family tree at the Langdale's 3rd generation when Bertha Valentine Ames (3rd generation Ames) married Charles Andrew Langdale. The Northrup/Northop's line married into the Ames' at their 1st generation (Mary Emily Northrop - 7th generation - married Othaniel Ames). The family tree depicted at the bottom of the page should help clarify their relationships.
