Mr. James Langhorne, will present his book, “The Virginia Langhornes: a History” on Saturday, April 11 at the meeting of the Central Virginia Genealogical Association at 1:30 p.m. at the Family History Center in back of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Airport Road.
The book documents all the descendants of Capt. John Langhorne (who came to Virginia about 1668), through the first generation born in the 20th century. Nancy Astor and Irene Gibson are the two most famous members of the family and have Albemarle connections, having spent time at Mirador, the family estate in Western Albemarle.
All proceeds from the sale of the book benefit the Historic Sandusky Foundation in Lynchburg, VA, a local museum and history center. Sandusky is an historic house long owned by the Hutters, Langhorne in-laws, who also owned Jefferson’s Poplar Forest.
