Langford's Military service in Co. F., 1st Regiment Colorado Cavalry was the "New Mexico Campaign" which lasted from March 1862 to November 1862.

One possible clue to the last name of Hannah Josephine is found in the naming of one of Langford's Mining Lodes in Boulder County - i.e. Giscardo-possibly a variant spelling of the surname Giscard.

Langford had two land patents in Boulder County. The first patent was a military land warrant, where he was the assignee, dated 1 Feb 1869, located in Township 1 South, Range 70 West, Section 11. Near the area of Cherryvalle Road and South Boulder Road. The second was a Homestead Patent, dated 15 December 1873 for 158.82 acres in Section 18, Township 1 South, Range 69 West (near Louisville). Langford was forced to sell 18 acres of this second patent June 23, 1894, in order to pay a settlement to Norman R. Howard.
