I have a listing for Osmond T. Long born in North Carolina about 1861. He married Emma Linde from Tennessee around the late 1800s or early 1900s. He stated on the 1920 Census in Tennessee that he was born in North Carolina and that his parents were born in North Carolina. I believe he is a son or grandson of Osmond Fitz Long who was born in 1808 in Orange County, North Carolina and whose father, John Long, was born in 1785 in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Osmond Fitz Long was married to Frances Helen Webb, who was born in 1810 in Hillsborough, Orange County, North Carolina. Emma Linde Long was my paternal grandmother's sister. I also believe that my family may have a connection to Frances Helen Webb. Matilda Linde Bowers, another sister of my grandmother's had a daughter, Mayme Marie Bowers, who was married to James Earl Webb, who owned the famous "Webb's City" in St. Petersburg, Florida. Any information would be helpful. Thank you. My email address is:
