HE PROVED HIMSELF A CAPABLE AND INDUSTRIOUS WORKMAN, AND HIS CHRISTMAS GIFT OF 1887 WAS IN THE WAY OF A PROMOTION TO ENGINEER. FOR THE PAST TWELVE YEARS HE HAS RUN IN THE FREIGHT SERVICE BETWEEN HONELLSVILLE AND SALAMANCA, AND HAS FIRMLY ESTABLISHED HIS RECORD AS A CAREFUL AND CAPABLE RUNNER. ON NOVEMBER 13, 1880, MR. LANGWORTHY WAS MARRIED TO MISS ELLA HENDEE, DAUGHTER OF JAMES HENDEE A FARMER OF STEUBEN COUNTY, NEW YORK, AND THEY HAVE ONE CHILD, HELEN. MRS. LANWORTHY IS A MEMBER OF THE EASTERN STAR, WHILE MR LANGWORTHY BELONGS TO LODGE NO. 44, F. & A.M.: STEUBEN CHAPTER, NO. 101; AND LODGE NO 47, B. L.E.
