    I was interested if you had any displays or info on the History of the Langston Family in Laurens that is displayed in the museum. Solomon Langston was my 4th Great Grandfather. I am from the group that moved to Florida in the 1850’s, Jessie Langston. He died fighting with the Florida 5th regiment in Wise, Richmond, Virginia. Thanks in advance, Larry
