Great to hear from you! And thanks for clearing up the mystery for me regarding Elizabeth White (Worth) -- that had me puzzled for a while. Also, where did you find Homer Long's death certificate? I spent most of this morning in Madison County searching public records, which out to be extremely fruitful. My dad (Frederick Elmer Long) once lived in Deer Creek Township (WW I era) on RR #3. Homer Long lived on R D No. 6 which I believe from talking with Madison recorders office means Rural Delivery No. 6, same as RR #6! Beyond that, little help in finding any specific addresses in Madison County.
Also, I found the discharge papers for Homer Elmer Long (Jr.)who had a very distinctive bayonet wound in the left groin area from WW I (listed in his discharge papers and WW II Draft registration), and that my dad had told me about as a child that I somehow never forgot -- so I knew I had found records for one of my uncles.
Also, I found the old deed for Harvey Elmer Long (another uncle) and drove out to the old property in West Jefferson but otherwise, not much more. I visited the Pleasant Cemetery in West Jefferson but never found his grave there or anywhere else. Not sure if he was moved or interred in Pickaway or some other cemetery in Madison.
I found the following names in Pleasant Cemetery thanks to the Roads and Cemetery department who were nice enough to drive out to Pleasant to meet me and help me find specific graves, so I know I have found all the Long's. However, I cannot without further research figure who they are, the names at this point don't make much sense to me -- and the Roads and Cemetery department indicated there are a lot of Long's in the West Jefferson and surrounding areas. Here are the names for all of the Long's in Pleasant Cemetery provided they had headstones (and hence, were part of the 1987 survey to identify all those families interred there):
Ralph E. (Elmer?) Long
b: Feb 9, 1924
d: Apr 18, 1976
Betty R. Long
b: March 16, 1927
d: None Listed
Genevieve F. Long
d: None Listed
Jack W. Long
Harley K. Long
Bertha M. Long
Olive J. Long (I also found estate records in Madison, again I am not sure of her relation if any to our family)
Finally, and most interesting I found the grave of another Long in the Summer's plot:
The stone is broken off at the ground level, and someone carved ANNABELLE into the top of the break with no birth or death listed. There may be other Long's there, but since they would have had unmarked graves, they were not listed in the 1987 survey to identify everyone in Pleasant.
Tomorrow I are going to spend the day in Pickaway trying to find records since my dad (Frederick Elmer Long) was born in Five Points, even though he later lived on Kendall St. in London, and then Deer Creek Township (and Harvey Elmer Long lived in West Jefferson Township about the same time, circa 1912-1917), he and the rest of the family also lived in Oak Run Township at one time as well.
Look forward to hearing from you!
