Parker Langford: Coachman to the Bradley, Dudley, and Barnes familiesAs for the history of 467 West Fourth, a search of the local history index at the Lexington Public Library revealed one hit: the Lexington Leader's "colored notes" of February 1930 noted that "funeral services for Mrs. Laura Langford, formerly of this city, were held in Cincinnati, Monday, February 10. She was the wife of Parker Langford, 467 West Fourth Street."
According to the 1921 Polk's Lexington City Directory, Parker Langford resided at 467 West Fourth Street. He was listed as a janitor, though at an unknown place. His obituary also appeared twice in the Lexington Leader on July 30, 1941 after he passed away at the Good Samaritan hospital after a long illness. The Madison County native was the son of Green and Eliza Langford whose residence was misidentified as 457 West Fourth Street (the 1940 Census confirms that Langford lived at street number 467, not 457).
