Elias / Ezekial Delong and Descendants--from Quebec to Wisconsin
Posted by: Jessica Dowell (ID *****6905) Date: August 20, 2008 at 10:53:37
  of 1846

Hi--I am trying to trace my DeLong family roots The earliest ancestor I know of is a Elias/Ezekial DeLong born about 1780. He married a Mary Jane (last name unk) and had at least 3 children born in Russeltown, Quebec: Joseph (1800-1853), Mary Jane and Wilber (1802-?).

Joseph married Anna Hannegan (1809-1865) and they had 12 children, although I only know the names of 9:

Elias (more info below), Anna (Wilson), William F, John, Henry, George, Charles, Mary Jane (Keeley), Eliza (Greer).

Joseph died after skinning an oxen and cutting his hand, resulting in blood poisoning. Anna then moved from Russeltown, Quebec to Eau Galle, Dunn County, Wisconsin where some of her sons were living, bringing most of her children with her, where many raised familes and lived until they died.

Elias (1825-1912) married Clarissa "Clara" Thompson and moved to Eau Galle, Dunn, Wisconsin where they raised their family and are buried. Their children are Joseph Henry, Royal, Emmanuel Elias, Hattie Jane(Boa/Reckin), Clarissa (Maher), Hiram, Lavina (Todd), William and Jane.

I am willing to share with those interested with these DeLong descendants, and am hoping perhaps someone will know the lineage of Elias/Ezekial DeLong.
