My Langins - The Oregon Connection

The family story has been that my mother's father, Linwood Earl  Langin, spent a couple of very unhappy years living in Oregon. I was never able to confirm this until recently when I happened on the following old newspaper article published in the Alma Record in October of 1913:

I know from previous research that my great grand mother's third husband's name was Wellington Hill and her father's name was Edwin Miner. This news was published in the "Riverdale" section of the newspaper. My great grandmother, Lena Miner Hill, died in Riverdale, Michigan in March of 1915.
