Note for: Robert Lang, - 1763 Index
This Robert Lang was the father
of Richard Lang, and Isaac Lang. He died in Saluda, SC in 1763. We have
found that Roberts father was also a Robert. Both Roberts were Indian
Traders. The Robert Lang that is in NC whos wife is Elliner, we think
is the elder Robert above. We have found a Robert Lang in Virginia as
early as 1703, in NC, abt. 1718, and then we find a Robert Lang in SC as
early as 1737. Because the Robert Lang in NC was identified as an Indian
Trader and we know the Robert Lang in SC was an Indian Trader we feel
this is the same family. Richard Lang, Robert's eldest son, who came to
Spanish East Florida by 1783, was married to a Sarah Benson. Their son
David Lang, b. 1786 married Zilpha Fourakers, in 1829. This is my line.
Their daughter Catherine Lang married Malachi Higginbotham. (Does
anyone know where she is buried?)
will send a brief summary I put together a few years ago. It needs to
be updated as I have now found Roberts father.
It is good to hear from you again. I have been inactive the last two
years as we lost both my mother and mother in law the past two years.
They lived with us or next to us and were very sick for a while before
they went home. I hope to get more involved in my search soon.

A memorial exhibit by William Seawright to be registered...150 acres in
Berkley County on Santee River adj. land laid out to Robert Lang Senr,
originally granted 5 June 1742 to Robert lang Junr, and was by said
Robert Lang and Melasante his wife 11 May 1744 conveyed to Thomas Brown

who conveyed 16 July 1748 to the Memorialist.... dated 14 June 1754.
It would appear from the Land memorial above that it was Robert lang,
Jr., who was married to Millicent/Melasante. This Robert Lang of Saludy
died in 1763.
The Lang Family
This is largely a genealogical work in progress on the family and
descendants of Robert Lang, Sr. who was living in the Township of Saxa
Gotha, South Carolina, in 1737. Certain historical records, summaries,
and other documents have been transcribed which help trace the Lang
family from South Carolina, to Spanish East Florida, and Georgia. It is
my desire that through these records and historical documents we will be
able to one day determine just when, and from where, Robert Lang, Sr.
came. I think he was an Englishman, but this is yet to be proven.
There was a Robert Lang, Jr. with property next to Robert Lang, Sr. in
the Township of Saxa Gotha in 1742. From Robert Lang, Sr.s will we know
his wifes name was Millicent, a son-in-law, Thomas Largen, and a son,
Richard Lang. Other children are not mentioned.
Robert Lang, Sr.s will was proved 22 July 1763. The advertisement for
the sale of a portion of Robert Lang, Sr.s estate shows that he was
living near Saludy when he died. I believe this was located between the
Broad and Saludy rivers in South Carolina.
From the will and other documents we have found the following children
of Robert Lang, Sr.: Nancy Lang, Richard Lang, and Robert Lang, Jr.
Nancy married Thomas Largent, and Richard married Sarah Benson. There is
very little information on Robert Lang, Jr.
Richard Lang, named as the eldest son of Robert Lang, Sr. in his will,
was my fourth Great-grandfather. Richard Lang and his family are of
special interest to me. Richard Lang was born abt. 1744, and died 1817,
in Camden County, Georgia. Richard Lang was a Loyalist during the
Revolution and held the rank of Private and then Captain in a Troop of
Militia Dragoons, Ninety Six Brigade, South Carolina. As early as 1783
Richard Lang was in Spanish East Florida. He became a Spanish Magistrate
for the St. Marys River valley and later became embroiled in the events
surrounding the Florida Rebellion in 1793-1795.
In the Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia Vol. V., page 256, compiled and
published by Folks Huxford, we find a short biography and listing of
Richard Lang and his family. While this is an excellent work more recent
information, unavailable to the compilers, has shown some corrections
needed. The most significant is the relationship of Richard and Isaac
Lang, who was b. 7 December 1767. It has been thought for many years
that Richard and Isaac were brothers. With the discovery of Robert Lang,
Sr.s will and recent translations of documents found in the East
Florida Papers, it now appears most certain that Isaac Lang was
Richards son and not his brother. Any additional information on this
relationship would be greatly appreciated.
I am very interested in finding any genealogical and historical
information on Richard Lang and his family. I have provided family
charts for those interested in the Lang family which can be found in the
back of this document. I welcome any additions and/or corrections to
this work in progress.
A special thanks to the following people who helped compile and
transcribe the following information.

Isaac Lang of Cummings, Georgia
