A Sad Story
Marietta Belle Langdon was married to Charles Covault and they had a son named Hugh. When Charles died Hugh added the name of his step-father, Guy Adams. So, Hugh Covault Adams married Jenny and they had a son named Guy.

The picture is of Jenny and her son, Guy

San Diego Union Newspaper, Wednesday June 29, 1932:
Father's ashes and Son's mark old fishing spot:
Father and son, in innumerable fishing trips together near the whistling buoy in the ocean off San Diego, had agreed that if anything happened to either,m he should be buried there.
It was learned yesterday that the ashes of Hugh Adams had been scattered over the favorite fishing spot Saturday, three days after the ashes of his 18 year old son and fishing companion, Guy Adams had been strewn there.
The father died the day following the son's funeral services Thursday. Guy was killed last week when an automobile in which he was riding turned over on Big bear grade. His school principal. M. J. Harkness , of Victor Valley Union high school, and four classmates brought the ashes of Guy to the San Diego pier Thursday and held simple services near the buoy.

Similar services were held for the father. Mrs. Adams is staying with friends in Ocean Beach. The Adams family lived in San  Diego until two years ago when they moved to Victorville. Hugh Adams had retired from the Navy because of ill health and is believed to have died of shock as a result of this son's death.

More new mystery pictures

This is an example of some of the new pictures I have added to the Photo Album of unknown pictures. The box of pictures belonged to my grandmother who died several years ago.

These pictures were important to some family many years ago and I would like to give pictures back to them. Some of the pictures are 80-100 years old. Please contact me with any questions or comments at

Please take a look at the photos posted on this website. Most are from Gallia county, Ohio where my Langdons lived. It would be wonderful if some one could recognize any one at all here. If so, please, please contact me. Thanks, Karen

From the Langdon Bible

Who are these people?  Where was the picture taken?  I wonder why Isaac Langdon kept it in this Bible?

Fascinating video

How marble tombstones are made

Most interesting video showing the process of making marble tombstones.  Every time you see a marble head stone, you will remember this video.
