Seeking more info on the following:
Odessa Democrat (Lafayette County, Missouri), Aug 1, 1907
John Henry Long died in this city at noon Sunday, July 28, 1907. Our subject was born in Orange county North Carolina January 18, 1834 and was 73 years of age. He was the oldest of eight children, six of whom survive him and are residents of his native state North Carolina.
Deceased came to Ray county Missouri about the year 1865 and settled in the west part of the county. He was married on May 28, 1857 at Otsego, in Ray county, to Miss Julia Elizabeth Klapp by Rev. William Albright, in the presence of Joseph Rippey and Miss Josie Burton. Mr. and Mrs. Long moved to Lafayette county and for the past 25 years have resided about five miles south of Odessa. Mr. Long was the father of seven children, six girls and one son, all of whom are married and survive him. He was a member of the M. E. church South and held membership for years past at McKindre Chapel. For the past few months, Mr. and Mrs. Long have made their home with their daughter Mrs. Newton Craig on east Mason street.
Burial took place at McKindre Chapel at 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Dowdy preaching the funeral sermon Burial was under the auspices of the local Masonic order.
-Was John Henry Long in the Civil war in NC or MO?
-Does he have any descendants?
-Did he remain in contact with his NC family?
-He seems to have gone back to NC after he married in 1857 in MO, then went back to MO during the Civil War. WHY? Seems like that wouldn't have been a safe time to travel.
Any other interesting info would be welcome!
I have SOME info on his parents and siblings, but can always use additional information.
