Seeking information on Anton LANGER

I recently acquired the death certificate of my great-grandfather, Maximilian Joseph Langer, whose birthplace is listed as Oberglogau, Silesia, now Glogowek, Poland, born 21 July, 1840. His parents are listed as Anton Langer, a master weaver, and Barbara Kura. A search on has given me two Anton Langers, both born in Niesse (Nysa) in an appropriate time frame --

Anton Franz Andreas Langer, b. 29 March 1817 (parents, Clemens LANGER and Elisabeth GEBAUER)

Anton Carl Ernst Langer, b. 27 April 1816 (parents Felix LANGER and Rosalia HUNECKE)

I will be very grateful if I can get help in confirming that either of these Anton Langers (records found on Family Search) is the father of Maximilian Langer. Is there a database I can search? Does someone have an Ortsfamilienbuch that might include them? Any help or guidance you can give me will be very much appreciated.

I see that your research is almost complete? Lot of arduous work on those Langer surnames.
For someone other interested let me paste the blog address with whole search process and results:

Impressive work!

LANGER: Surname derived from the comparative form of the German/Yiddish
adjective lang (long) which is länger.

KURA: Polish word for hen.

Thank you for your responses. Yes, I have done a lot of work on the Langers since I made the post above, but I still have much to do. I am on my way to the Library at Salt Lake City right now, and hope to find out more about the Langers of Oberglogau/Glogowek. I'm happy to share any information I have with other Langer ancestors.
