The NEHGS has records on-line through 1910 (earlier than you were looking for, I realize).
I looked up HANLEY and LANGTON in Roxbury...
I found a marriage from 1864 (vol 172, pg 216):
Henry Samuel HANLEY married Nancy STEWART on January 23, 1864, both of Roxbury.
He was age 30 and a hostler (first marriage) -- she was 28 (second marriage) -- both born Ireland.
His parents were Alexander and Eleanor (hers just says John CORBETT--may have been her original maiden name?)
There was a Kate HANLEY born in Roxbury in 1867, but her parents were Leonard & Mary (BORGER). He was a baker from Germany, so I presume no relation there.
FYI, there was a James Henry HANLEY who died in Lynn, MA on 3 Sept 1904 -- at age 21, 8 mos, 15 days (vol 62, pg 59).
Says his parents were Patrick J. HANLEY (born Ireland) and Mary CAVANAUGH (born England).
I suggest that you post to the MA-census-lookup list for 1900/1910/1920/1930 to see what HANLEY / LANGTON families were in the Roxbury area at that time.
