Galveston Daily Enterprise, 31 May 1910
Galveston, May 30.--Mrs. Eliza St[o]cks Langston, wife of H. W. D. Langston of the Boulevard hotel, died suddenly Sunday morning at the hotel, in the fifty-sixth year of her life. Mrs. Langston was born in Montgomery, Ala., and was but a child when her parents moved to Texas. Her early life was passed on her grandfather's (the late Major Wood) plantation in Montgomery county, Texas. She was first married to Judge Benton Randolph of Huntsville, which union lasted ten years. After two years of widowhood Judge H. W. D. Langston claimed her as his bride at San Antonio in 1896. She had been a resident of Galveston for twelve years, participating actively in the management of the Seaside and Boulevard hotels, and she will be greatly missed by the guests, as well as her many friends, who annually sojourned here. Quiet and unostentatious, she led the life of a practical Christian. Mrs. Langston was sovereign of Myrtle Grove Lodge No. 122 of the Woodmen Circle of the local order at the time of her demise. The funeral was held from the residence at 10 o'clock this morning and interment took place in Lakeview cemetery.
