I am seeking parents of John Long, born ca, 1756 perhaps in VA. Died ca. 1819 in Lincoln County, NC (will proved 1822)
He married Ann Graham Beatty, 17 Dec. 1783 in Lincoln County, NC (would love to know where I can get a copy of the marriage record or bond) Ann was the daughter of Archibald Graham and Margaret Neely, and widow of Abel C. Beatty. John Long served in Rev. War under his not yet brother-in-law, William Graham. I have found abstracts of records in Mecklenburg County, for John Long, so I am sure he lived in the part that changed to Lincoln Co. I have already ruled out John and Agness Long of Mecklenburg, as John's parents, as their son John was born several years after my John. Any help as to who his parents were, would be appreciated.
