Birthdays Week of 23 January 2014

I received my weekly birthday list from WikiTree today. The following people have birthdays this week: Eleanor nee Kring Johnson, Ulysses Sherman Jefferies, Paul Lang, and Emma Ladner.

Eleanor Evelyn Kring Johnson (23 January 1927 – 08 June 2009; aunt). Aunt Eleanor was born in Gulfport, Harrison County, Mississippi. Her parents were Charles and Cora (Bush) Kring. She married William Johnson, Sr. and they were married 66 years at the time of her death. She moved to Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia at some point after the 1930 federal census. I found census records showing her as staying with her sister, Helen Grace Jordan, in Columbus during the 1940 census, but she is also listed as living in Gulfport with her parents during the same census. City directory listings for 1958 show she was still living in Columbus, but living Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado in 1960. She is buried in  Memorial Gardens Cemetery and Mausoleum in Colorado Springs, plot Abbey of the Angels Section, 104-F, Space 2 (crypt burial – GPS  38.82447, -104.75392)



Ulysses Sherman Jefferies (24 January 1867 – 1933; brother-in-law of 1st cousin 2x removed). Ulysses was born in Troy, Davis County, Iowa. His parents were Amor Jefferies, Jr. and Elizabeth Jane (Grosvenor) Jefferies. By the 1880 federal census, the family had moved to Green Garden, Ellsworth County, Kansas. In the 1900 federal census, he is listed as living in the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory (part of Oklahoma today). The 1920 and 1930 federal census records show him living in Rogers County, Oklahoma. His Find-A-Grave memorial has Sarah Ann Jefferies (1863 – 1932) as his wife. They are buried in Chelsea Cemetery, Chelsea, Rogers County, Oklahoma. His headstone has FLT triple rings symbol which indicates he was a member of one of the Odd Fellows fraternal orders.


Paul Lang or Lange (27 January 1666 – 27 May 1720 Crottendorf, Annaberg, Sachsen, Germany; great grandfather of wife of 3rd great grandfather). He married Regina Meyer on 15 November 1705 in Crottendorf, Annaberg, Sachsen, Germany. They had at least one child, Johann Christian Lang(e). Haven’t found a record of where he is buried.

Emma Ladner or Ladnier (29 January 1892 – ?; first cousin twice removed) . Her parents were Thomas and Theresa B. Ladner/Ladnier. Still looking for additional information on Emma. Will update as new information becomes uncovered.
