     Elizabeth was born circa November 1809 based upon her age of 67 years 2 months at the time of her death.5 Alternatively, she was born circa 1810 in Yorkshire, England, according to early family records and her obituary1,4 or circa 1811 in England iaccording to their mmigration record at the port of Alexandria, VA.6 Alternatively, she was born circa 1812 in England in early census records.7,8 Elizabeth married John Sykes on 15 October 1830 in Dearborn County, Indiana, USA.1,9,10 She died on 21 January 1877 in Austin Twp., Macon County, Illinois, USA.11,1,12,13 Elizabeth Langdale was buried on 25 January 1877 near Wrights Grove Cemetery, Maroa, Maroa Twp., Macon County, Illinois, USA.5
     Her name was also recorded as Elizabeth Langdon on her marriage registration. It also gave a middle name of Hill which appears to have been stroked ouot.10 Her name was also recorded as Elizabeth Sikes enumerator used ditto marks rather than recording her married name. He did record Sikes as a middle name for her son John.7 She immigrated with her parents, Thomas Langdale and Elizabeth Langdale between 1 April 1828 and 30 June 1828 to Alexandria, Alexandria County, Virginia, USA, left England from Liverpool, arriving at the port of Alexandria, VA on board the Pioneer under ships master, Leonard Marberg or possibly Marbury.14
     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Decatur Weekly Republican published in Decatur, Illinois 25 January 1877:
Died-- At the residence of her son-in-law J. B. Nowlin, in Austin township, on Sunday Jan. 21, 1877. Mrs. Elizabeth Sykes, aged 67 years.

Mrs. Sykes, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Langdale was born in Yorkshire, England and at the age of fourteen emigrated with her parents to this county, and settled in Dearborn county Indiana. At the age of nineteen she was married to John Sykes, of Cincinnati, Ohio, where she resided until 1849, when her husband dying of cholera, she returned to Dearborn County, and remained there until 1867, since which time she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Nowlin. Mrs. Sykes was the mother of eleven children, three only of whom (two sons and one daughter) survive her. The funeral services were held at the Methodist Chapel on Tuesday, attended by a large number of the neighbors and friends; and after listening to a very impressive discourse by the pastor, the remains were interred in the cemetery adjoining.13



     The following obituary appeared in the weekly newspaper the Lawrenceburg Press published in Lawrenceburg, Indiana 1 February 1877:
Died-- At the residence of her son-in-law J. B. Nowlin, in Austin township, Decatur (sic) County, Illinois, on Sunday Jan. 21, 1877. Mrs. Elizabeth Sykes, aged 67 years.

Mrs. Sykes, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Langdale was born in Yorkshire, England and at the age of fourteen emigrated with her parents to this county, and settled in Dearborn county Indiana. At the age of nineteen she was married to John Sykes, of Cincinnati, Ohio, where she resided until 1849, when her husband dying of cholera, she returned to Dearborn County, and remained there until 1867, since which time she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Nowlin. She was a most excellent woman. She was a sister to Robert and Thomas Langdale of this vicinity.

At some point in time a transcription error was made in passing down the Langdale Family tree since Phylis Sine's copy gives her date of death as June 21, not Jan 21.15



     In the obituary of Jane Elizabeth Sykes who died 17 December 1896, Jane's mother, Elizabeth Sykes was listed as predeceased.16,17
     September 2016 Research notes:
Were Elizabeth Langdon and Elizabeth Langdale the same person? See marriage registration

I assume this is correct unless I find evidence to the contrary.18

     The following information is extracted from his obituary. Survivor(s): Joy Horner and John Horner. Predeceased: Tillie Briscoe.3 Reuben Francis Briscoe was buried on 6 September 1975 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.2,3
     His name was recorded as Reuben Francis Brisco on his birth registration.4,5
     The following newspaper article appeared in the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Saskatoon StarPhoenix 7 July 1930 :
Job Seeker Leaves Booze fo Foreman
With jobs hard to get, people are apparently going to considerable lengths to get on a payroll. Several cases of attempts to bribe foremen in charge of city work have been reported to George D. Archibald, city engineer. In one instance a bottle of booze and a box of cigarets (sic) were left on the back steps of a foreman's home while he was downtown to attend a talkie. This foreman was R. Briscoe, in charge of semi-macadam roadway construction. Mr. Briscoe doesn't drink liquor in any form, and the quart bottle is still intact.8

     Reuben Briscoe and family attended the Rosenthal School Pals Reunion.
On Dominion Day (July 1) in 1931, August and Minnie Summach hosted a reunion of local families in which at least one of the parents had attended Rosenthal school in Renfrew County, Ontario. A photographer from Saskatoon took a panoramic photograph of about 14 families and other guests.9,10

     In the obituary of Theodore Francis Briscoe who died 3 May 1942, Theodore's father, referred to as Mr. R. Briscoe, R Briscoe was listed as a survivor.11
     Reuben Francis Briscoe was recorded as father of the bride at the marriage of Albert Ralph Horner and Eva Joy Briscoe on 12 July 1944.12
     In the obituary of Matilda Augusta Briscoe who died 5 January 1971, Matilda's husband, Reuben Briscoe was listed as a survivor.13
     According to Peter Smith, Rueben and Tillie were killed in a car accident. They pulled to the side of the road during a snowstorm and were hit. However, the Saskatoon Woodlawn cemetery index shows they died several years apart. Since Tillie died in January, I assume she was killed in the accident, and Rueben survived.14
     See the footnotes below for a link to his on-line obituary that appeared in the newspaper the Saskatoon StarPhoenix published in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, 3 September 1975 .3

     In the obituary of Joy Horner who died 7 December 2003, Joy's father, Reuben Briscoe was listed as predeceased.15

     Query Posted on Rootsweb Dearborn Message board by Phyllis L Wright Jan 31, 2001:

John Sykes Married Elizabeth Langdon Oct. 15, 1830 in Dearborn Co. Who were their parents? Son James was apprentice tinsmith at Lawrenceburg in 1850. Marr. at Shelbyville 1855 to Emerine Goodrich, granddaughter of Susan Wetzel who was dau of Capt.. John Wetzel of Marshall co. WV. James had several siblings who went to Iowa. Where did father and mother die? Was Elizabeth of the Cinci. Langdon's who came from Vt?

Need more research, but this would preclude Elizabeth Langdon from being "our" Elizabeth Langdale. She had a son John, but not James.
---------------------------------
Obituary for Elizabeth states that she married John Sykes of Cincinnati. In 1849 she returned to Dearborn County as John was dying of cholera.

Phyllis Wright responded on July 27, 2001:
John Sykes, my gggrandfather was marr Oct.9,1830 to Elizabeth Landdon (sic), (Langdale) in Dearborn co., In. I have found something with Langdale on it in family papers but cannot remember just where right now as after finding marr. cert in Dearborn co. dismissed the Langdale spelling. I was looking in Ross Co. Oh as my ggrandfather James Sykes death cert at Shelbyville, In. stated he was born in Ross. There are many Sykes in Ross Co but could not make the connection. Believe John goes back to John Sykes(Six) of Green Co Pa.1770-1800 who was in Rev. Have a list of his children. Wife was a Bonnett, a sister of Capt. John Wetzel's wife Mary. Their dau Susannah marr. Nathanial Goodrich and died in Shelby co. In. Granddaughter Emerine Goodrich marr. James Sykes, son of John. James an apprentice tinsmith at Lawrenceburg for some reason visited Shelbyville & marr. Emerine. Belive he was visiting relatives. Have found no land records in Dearborn Co for John. John Sykes could have lived on Ky side of river as some of the Wetzel family did that before Jacob blazed Wetzel trace from Brookville in 1819. Are you related/ Do you have any info on family that you could share?14
