In Reply to: Anyone Have Photos from David DeLong of Centre Line? by Jackie Ross Flaum of 1845

I have no photos of these folks, but I am interested in learning about this DeLong family, in the event I'm ever able to connect my George Delong to them. I'm going to give a run-down on the first generations of your DeLong family, as I have them on my computer, based on some brief research. Can you point out any errors or add any info?

GENERATION #1 - David DeLong, born about 1753

GENERATIONS #2 - David's children were:

> David DeLong, Jr., born about 1779

> John DeLong, born about 1781; married Margaret Campbell. Had three children: Sally, b. before 1809; Polly, b. before 1809; (given name unknown) child, b. before 1809.

> (daughter) DeLong, born before 1784.

> (daughter) DeLong, born before 1784.

> Jonathan DeLong, b. about July 1784, died Aug. 1862 in PA, buried Church of Christ/Christ's Disciples cemetery, Liberty Twp., Centre Co., PA. 1st wife's name was Elisa. 2nd wife's name was Sarah Campbell, b. 1773, d. 1857 Centre Co., buried same place as Jonathan. Jonathan & his 2nd wife Sarah had the following children:
>>>> Campbell DeLong, b. 1804, d. 1866 in PA; married Elizabeth Kunes & Elizabeth Potts.
>>>> David DeLong, b. 1806 in PA, d. 1889 in PA, married Elizabeth Beachdel.
>>>> Margaret DeLong, b. 1808, d. 1864. Married Jacob Brickley.
>>>> Jonathan DeLong, Jr., b. 1810-1812, d. 1866, married Sarah Potts. Then Jonathan married Frances Bumgartner.
>>>> Sarah DeLong, b. 1814, d. 1889, married John Beachdel.

Other children of Jonathan DeLong (the one born 1784, d. 1862) were: James, b. 1785-1790; daughter, b. about 1790; Josiah, b. about 1790; son, born about 1790; Michael, b. 1790-1800.

The furthest back I am on my DeLong ancestry is George DeLong, Sr., who was born about 1745, allegedly in PA, and died between 1818-1819 in OH; his wife's name was Elizabeth Jane Ward. They lived in Cumberland Co., PA (which later became Franklin Co.). And then Mifflin Co., PA before coming to OH. Elizabeth Jane Ward's father was John Ward who also lived in Cumberland/Franklin Co. Mifflin Co. and Franklin Co. are located almost due south of Centre Co., PA.

Thanks for your patience in reading all this.
