Re: Town of Longstreth, Hocking Co, Ohio

In Reply to: Town of Longstreth, Hocking Co, Ohio by Robert E. Longstreath Sr. of 894

I do not know of the town of Longstreth, but there was a very large farm that was known as the Longstreth farm . It was located in the southern Green and northern Starr townships. St. Rt,. 328 intersected the farm. There is an old Longstreth Cemetery on the side of the highway, that is in very bad condition.
When the children on Mr. Longstreth married he built 2 additional houses along the road, about 1/2 miles apart. The farm was later broken up and sold into atleast 3 sections.
The center section was bought by the Prespertarian Church. The big on 2 story brick house was later torn down. My husband and I lived in it just prior to that.
The northern section house has also been torn down. My parents did not live in any of the origional houses, but one that was later built on what was origionally Longstreth farm. I don't know if this helps your search, I just sent it for what it was worth. I think I have a picture of the front of the big brick house, which was the home place, taken in 1958. It was a neat old house. Let me know if you are interested. I could discribe it, if I tried. My drawings aren't the best, but it would give you some idea, if this was your family. email me anytime. Kay
