     Note: From "History of the Long Family of Pennsylvania":

"Our research work has lead us into Bern and Basel, Switzerland; and in the records we find that a number of Langs (Longs) who settled in Lancaster County, PA, were originally located in Stadel, Windlach, Rath, Wintersingen, Muttenz, and Sissach, Switzerland."

Some branches of the Lang Family of Switzerland immigrated to the Palatinate, locating in Langen, Hesse, and in Zweibrücken as well as at other points in Germany. Later, some of the descendants of this branch of the family emigrated from Germany to America.

Christian LANG, the emigrant ancestor of the Long Family Of Pennsylvania, from information that is apparently authentic, but very meager, came from the Palatinate, Germany. Family records do not clearly nor definitely state the name of the town or province from which he came, but family tradition indicates that he was located in or near Langen, Hesse, Germany.

We are led to believe that the family name was originally LANGEN, but later, was changed to LANG, and finally, about the time of the Civil War, the English pronunciation of LONG was universally adopted.

Christian Lang, as near as can be determined at this late date, was born in the year 1664. He was influenced by men like William Penn, who very glowingly pictured the freedom and wonders of the new country across the sea, for tradition says that at about the age of nineteen or twenty years, he bade his family and friends adieu, and ventured across the waters to the shores of an unknown country, called America, landing at what was then known as Germantown, now Philadelphia, PA, in the year 1683-1684.

On the voyage to America he became acquainted with a young German girl, who with her parents was also bound for these shores and an unknown future. This acquaintance, ripened into love, and at a later time, probably in Philadelphia, they were married.

We also understand that this Christian Lang was one of the one Hundred and fifty high and low Germans who with Johannes Koster petitioned the Court of Philadelphia on March 15, 1706. A part of which petition follows:

'Court at Philadelphia, fifteenth day, third month, 1706. Petition of Johannes Koster and 150 other high and low Germans, Having for 22 years behaved as liege and loyal subjects of England by cultivating lands in the Province, turning them into settlements, that 60 above petitioners at one time, viz: - 7th day, 3d mo., 1691, had in open court promised allegiance to King William and Queen Mary, etc.'

Being adventurous, and feeling the greater possibilities of the future were on the frontier, Christian and his family did not remain in Germantown, but, following the trails and water courses, he finally arrived at Hickorytown, now known as Lancaster, PA.

Tradition says that where Lancaster now stands, there was once an Indian Wigwam. A hickory tree stood in its center, not far from a spring. Under this tree, the councils met, and it was from one of these councils that a deputation was sent to confer with William Penn at Shackamaxon, in 1683. The Indian nation was called "Hickory", and the town was called Hickorytown before Lancaster was laid out. It is also said that the town derived its name from the log-huts that were built of hickory logs.

Christian Lang was approximately fifty-four years old when he was recorded as a resident of Lancaster in 1718-1719. (Rupp's 30000 Names, page 438.)

Unfortunately, records were not available so that we could definitely determine the names of all of his children, especially insofar as it relates to the female side of the family, for marriages, births and deaths occurred without the proper recording at this early date. Therefore, we were not able to secure the statistics regarding the marriages of the daughters, nor were we able to get the names of all the male children. However, the records and history of the following children and their descendants will be given:

1) Christian, married to Ann Margaret ---.
2) Herman, married to Anne Hershey
3) Urbanus (Urban) married to Catharine Blum
4) John, married to Anna ---.
5) Michael, married to Regina Magdalena Lora."

4. John LANG

Services will be at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at First Baptist Church, with burial at Memorial Park Cemetery. Visitation will be 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Parker Funeral Service.

Mr. Lang was born on Aug. 7, 1912, in Fulton to Howard B. Lang Sr. and Georgia Arnold Lang. The family moved to Columbia in 1929, and he was among the first to graduate from Hickman High School. Mr. Lang received three degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia: a bachelor of arts, master of arts in political science and a law degree. He also received a Faculty Alumni Award.

The young lawyer joined the firm of Clark, Boggs, Peterson and Becker in 1938. He enlisted in the Navy in 1942 and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands and at Camp Parks, Calif.

In 1946, Mr. Lang was elected prosecuting attorney for Boone County. He served as mayor of Columbia from 1953 to 1957 and oversaw the buying of the land for what would become Stadium Boulevard and the extension of Providence Road. Robert C. Smith, mayor of Columbia in the early 1960s and lifetime family friend states, "Howard always was my advisor and mentor, both as a lawyer and as mayor. He was most proud of what it meant to Columbia to have built Stadium Boulevard, and he even got it accomplished for a low price."

In 1949, Mr. Lang joined MFA Insurance Cos., where he was employed for the next 35 years. He began as chief claims attorney, then became vice president in charge of claims from 1953 through 1964, when he was elevated to senior vice president. Mr. Lang was named president of the companies and was elected to the board of directors in April 1979. He retired as president in 1981 and served as chairman of the board until 1984.

Active in the community that he loved, Mr. Lang was a dedicated member of First Baptist Church and served on many boards, including Boone County Hospital, Stephens College, the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, the Missouri Heart Institute, First National Bank, Water and Light and the Daniel Boone Regional Library. He was a Meals on Wheels volunteer for 15 years. Leo Hill, city manager from 1952 to 1958, says, "I have complete confidence that Howard Lang was the very best public servant ever to serve the Columbia community." Mr. Lang was also an avid University of Missouri sports fan who rarely missed a home football game.

Mr. Lang was devoted to his family. His beloved wife Mary Kay died in 1990 after 54 years of marriage. He is survived by daughters Mary Carolyn "Khaki" Westerfield and husband Jim, and Martha Lang Delmez; granddaughters Elizabeth Westerfield and husband Stephen Griffith, Carrie Ramlow and Alec Ramlow, Katie Delmez, and Sarah McElroy and husband Campbell; two great-grandchildren, Ella and Lewis Griffith; and niece Sharon Matzen and nephew David Lang. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife and his brother, Arthur P. Lang.
