Edward Long 1810-1858/59
Posted by: ERNEST LONG (ID *****3676) Date: October 18, 2004 at 11:51:52

I am looking for information on Edward Long b:1810 d:1859.
He is listed on the Hopkins cnty Texas 1850 census with wife Alcy ? and the children that were born in TN.
The census shows that Edward was born in Alabama.
This leads me to believe that he was in TN during the 1830' and 1840's and moved into Texas in the late 1840's, prior to the 1850 census.

Below is the census data for 1850 and 1860.
Schedule I - Free Inhabitants
Abstracted from Microcopy M432, Roll 911:

Column 1 - Dwelling Houses numbered to the order of visitation.

Column 2 - Name of every person whose usual place of abode on the firstday
of June, 1850, was this family.

Column 3 - Age

Column 4 - Sex

Column 5 - Profession, Occupation, or Trade of each Male Person over 15
years of age.

Column 6 - Value of Real Estate Owned

Schedule II - Slave Inhabitants
Abstracted from Microcopy M432, Roll 917

Column 1 - Name of Slave Owner

Column 2 - Number of Slaves

Column 3 - Age

Column 4 - Sex

Column 5 - Color
SCHEDULE I - Free Inhabitants in the County of Hopkins, State of Texas,
Enumerated on the 30 Day of September, 1850:

Alsy L. 36 F Tennessee
Elizabeth 17 F "
James 15 M "
Reuben 13 M "
Polly 11 F "

Any leads or help will be appreciated and I will share what data I have.

Thanks and Happy Hunting
