    E-mail from Kitty Hoffman dated 22 Jan 1999.
    ...Notes from a newspaper man around Leesville, LA named Culpit, listed Levi's wife as a Cryer. When I was in Houston last year looking, I found an 1850 census which listed Levi's wife as Biven (don't think so, unless annoted - Jim Allen). Gadi and one of his brothers lived in Anacoco, LA where my ggfather, William Langton settled. They lived within traveling distance all their lives I believe. Corrine Langton Jones was a wonderful lady I met in Anacoco who helped me gather much information on the Langton's and two Biven lines of Henry's (brother to Winney)....
