About Porter Langdon

Porter Langdon was born 23 May 1845, in Illinois, son of Rowland and Catherine (Anderson) Langdon, who were married 14 May 1844, Boone Co., IL. It is likely that Porter was born in Boone County also. Rowland Langdon was born July 1818, Ohio. Catherine Anderson was born November 1826, NY. These two birth dates and places came from the 1900 census Juanita, King Co., WA, so I don't know how accurate they are. I don't have death information for either of them. Other children of Rowland & Catherine Langdon were Mariette (m. Mr. Williams), Edwin, and Hiram (m. Margaretta Whittaker).

Porter Langdon enlisted 6 August 1862 as a private in Company C 23 Regiment Wisconsin Infantry and was discharged 4 July 1865, Mobile, Alabama according to his Civil War pension (WC 753969). He married Celestia Ann Pickering. A marriage certificate is included in the the pension and shows the couple were married 5 March 1871, Oakdale, Monroe Co., WI. Porter Langdon is shown as a carpenter, residence Oakdale, born Illinois and father Rowland Langdon, mother Catherine Langdon. His wife Celestia Ann Pickering is shown as a daughter of Joseph Pickering and Roxy Pickering. A death certificate in the pension file states that Celestia was a daughter of Joseph Pickering (b. Ireland) and Roxy Ann Cooper (b. NY). Celestia was born 29 July 1853, Markesaw, WI, died 6 Jan. 1937, Olympia, Thurston Co., WA and was buried at Bethel Cemetery.

Porter was a farmer and resided in Wisconsin 1865-1872, Kansas 1872-1879, Iowa 1879-1888, and Washington 1888 until his death.

According to the pension, their children living in 1899 were: Dorra Alta, born 26 February 1872 James Webster, born 22 May 1877 Roxy Myrtle, born 2 June 1880; m. Mr. Berg Hiram Alonzo, born 12 August 1882 Agnes Margaret, born 29 March 1888 Rowland, born 26 December 1892
