Cabinet Photo of Elderly Man Identified as Mr. Langworthy
Cabinet photograph of an elderly man identified on reverse on Mr. Langworthy. The photograph was taken by Allen & Rowell, Boston, Massachusetts.
I found an I. P. Langworthy in the 1880 Census of Chelsea, Massachusetts, who indicated he was born about 1806 in Connecticut, living with his wife, born about 1819, also in Connecticut. They were living with their servant, Martha Gates, born in North Carolina about 1826. He is likely Reverend Isaac Pendleton Langworthy. Whether or not he is the Mr. Langworthy in the photograph, I don't know; perhaps a reader will solve the mystery.
If so, from online research, hopefully correct:
Isaac Pendleton Langworthy was born 19 January 1806 in North Stonington, Connecticut, the son of John and Sarah (Pendleton) Langworthy. His paternal grandparents were John and Altana (Babcock) Langworthy. His maternal grandparents were Nathan and Amelia (Babcock) Pendleton.
On 8 August 1842, Isaac Pendleton Langworthy married Sarah Williams, who was born 31 July 1818 in Connecticut, the daughter of Cyrus and Martha (Wheeler) Williams. I wasn't able to find any children for Isaac and Sarah, but they may have had some.
If you have any corrections, additions or insights to the information presented above, especially if you have a different prospect for the Mr. Langworthy in the photograph, please leave a comment in the comments box or contact me directly.
