Thanks for the clarification. The cemetery I was talking about was 'Pleasant Hill' in West Jefferson. I didn't realize it until you responded with all the names of Long's interred in Pleasant (in Mt. Sterling). I got confused because the Roads and Cemetery department kept referring to 'Pleasant Hill' as just 'the Pleasant Cemetery'. So, the names I provided in my last post were for 'Pleasant Hill' (West Jefferson), not 'Pleasant'(in Mt. Sterling) -- sorry for the confusing misdirect. However, I had not realized so many Long's were buried in the 'Pleasant' cemetery you linked. I will have to visit that cemetery on our next journey this fall. Also, I will list some of the things I found on this trip and will be happy to share anything I found.
Also, you mentioned in your previous post that you thought you had a copy of Homer's death certificate. I would be very interested in finding a copy of that. All of the documents I found I will be linking in ancestry as well, or I can provide them directly to you (if you're interested).
I stopped by the historical office in Pickaway -- what a wonderful place and such truly helpful people. I found a lot of records, however only one thing that specifically talked about, it was obit for Ada Long (maiden: Thomas). There are some records (i.e. Homer Long, my GF, and Fred Long, my dad) at the Circleville courthouse (probate), but it was too late yesterday by the time we finished at the historical society to get there before they closed.
Finally, I talked with a delightful lady in Five Points (blink!) and she told me a lot about the Long's and the property they owned there, and what is still in the family and also where to find a lot of old pictures from the old Monroe School, where it is likely that both my dad (for sure) and maybe his dad had attended. Next trip I want to spend some time looking at those pictures to see if I can get lucky.
Look forward to hearing from you!
