Hi. I'm not related to this family. Here is a possible obituary for Noah:

"Flora, June 24- Funeral services for Noah A. Long, 84, who died Monday will be held at .. the Cutler Presbyterian church... Burial will be in Ball Hill cemetery." ~Logansport Press - Wednesday, June 25, 1947, Logansport, Indiana

Here is a marriage announcement for him:

"Licensed to Marry Today - Noah A. Long and Belle Nutter.." ~Logansport Reporter - Wednesday, August 25, 1897, Logansport, Indiana

"Noah A. Long and Belle Nutter were united in marriage, today, in the office of the county clerk.." ~Logansport Pharos-Tribune - Wednesday, August 25, 1897, Logansport, Indiana

There is another article that mentions a previous marriage for a Noah Long:

..."He [William Long] had heard from his boy, Noah A. Long, who disappeared from his home in this county in February, 1890, and from whom not a word had been heard in all this time. The young man was married in 1883 to a young woman named Elsworth. To them three children were born but their married life was not happy and in February, 1890, the husband took two horses to Frankfort, sold them for $250 and left the country [sic]. He left no clew [sic] to the course he had taken but as he had several relatives in Colorado his father thought he had possibly gone out there... The wife got a divorce on the ground of abandonment and moved to Michigan. Last week Mrs. John Woodrum received a letter from her absent brother. It was mailed in Arizona and stated that the writer was well and prosperous and ready to come back to Carroll county to visit his old home... and it will probably not be very long before Noah Long will be eating turkey and sweet potatoes under his father's roof." ~Logansport Journal - Friday, December 29, 1893, Logansport, Indiana

Noah may have joined the army during that time:

U.S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914 about Noah A Long
Name:        Noah A Long

Hope this helps. Annie
