1880 Illinois census in Livingston County, shows James and wife Catherine with the following children: T.N. (Thomas) born in ILL. age 24, Mary Born ILL. age 21, she married a Hugh Mallaney or Mullaney, Katie born ILL. age 19 and James T. or H.born ILL.age 13. He was born April 18, 1867 and passed away July 26, 1929. His wife was Catherine Collins with her parents names Andrew Collins and Julia ? both born in Ireland. Both James Sr. and Jr. are buried in Mount Calvary Cemetery in Kankakee, ILL. I assume their spouses are there as well. Your James Sr. departed from Waterford Ireland and landed in N.Y. June 2, 1851 aboard the ship Ann Kenny. He was 24 at the time. Catherine was born in either New Jersey or N.Y. earlier census states New Jersey. 1900 census has them down as Gangham, no wonder you couldn't find them. Will try and hunt down a bit more....give me a little time. Good luck on your quest.

Found a Andrew Langan death in Kankakee Nov. 19, 1945 so it's probable that it's Andrew Jr's father. Marriage date between Andrew Sr. and Ruth Robisho, note spelling, Nov. 26, 1924 in Kankakee, ILL. As far as I can tell Ruth was born in Chicago with her parents being Jacob Robisho born Canada and mother Gertrude D. Baule, she was born in St. Anne, ILL Dec. 31, 1874 and died Dec.17, 1938 in St. Anne which I think is in Kakakee County, her parents were Canadian. I think you have the rest of the info on your tree. In 1930 census, Gertrude/Gertie was a servant and there is a Langan working with her. Odds are that this is your Langan and Robisho's. Good luck!
