Rebecca Langley age 14 is believed to have been the mother of Peona (Peony or Piney) Langley who married Jacob Benton Cross.  Jacob Benton Cross was born in Tennessee, but was from a branch of my Cross family that moved to Indiana.

Piney Langley was born about 1862 or 1863.  The 1870 and 1880 censuses would suggest that she was the daughter of Isaac Langley and Philopena Shoffner.  Piney was definitely raised by Isaac and Philopena.  However, I believe that Piney was the daughter of Rebecca born out of wedlock, and hence that she was the granddaughter of Isaac and Philopena rather than having been their daughter.  I haven't found Rebecca in any census subsequent to 1860.  I don't know if she died or if she married between 1860 and 1870.  In any case, she was no longer living with the family in 1870.

Jacob Benton Cross was the son of Franklin W. (Frank) Cross and Virginia Florence Laymance.  As such, Jacob was the great grandson of my fourth great grandfather William Cross the Revolutionary War Drummer boy.  Jacob's line was William -> Elijah -> Franklin W. (Frank) -> Jacob.
