On a search of Findagrave.com, I found these burials in the Spring Grove Cemetery in Anthony, Harper Co, KS:

Long, Catherine
b. 1856 d. 1947

Long, Frances (Rhodes)
b. Aug. 20, 1907 d. Aug. 6, 1998

Long, Frank M.
b. May 14, 1900 d. Sep. 9, 1985

The person who posted the burials is jrmayfield@cox.net and you can go to Findagrave, search and find any one of those burials, click on the poster's name (judy mayfield) and leave a public message for her. Perhaps she knows more about your Long (and Rhodes) family or can give you some other kind of head start.
