Hello. Well as I said I'll post some more info for you on the Long family. I'll start with my grandmothers parents, siblings and marriages.
Thomas Melvin Long - B. 29 Aug 1868 hearsay say in Clarinda, Page County, Iowa BUt recently I found a 1885 Iowa Census that has Fremont County,Iowa. The one thing that everybody agrees on it was in Iowa.
D.13 Jul 1942 Melrose, Cherokee County, Kansas (have Death Certificate)
M.Abt. 1891 possible in OK or KS as they lived along the border. Married his 1st cousin, Mary Delana Moore B. 28 Apr 1876 Osage City, Kansas (hearsay on place, have never found written proof), D.15 Sep 1929 either in OK or Chetopa, KS
Both are buried in Russel Creek Cemetery in Craig County,OK Family reunions use to be held at what was once the one room school room their kids attended it is in front of the cemetery sometime in the 1980's it was sold and converted to a house. But it had been deeded to the Long family for $1 a year as long as they held their family reunions there and the last one took place sometime in mid to late 1980's after they didn't hold it there it was able to be sold. The Long's didn't own it but had been having the reunions there for several decades because of the aggrement betweent the owners and the Longs but I have no idea who the owner was when the aggrement was made or when excatly.

After his death the military present Aunt Dora with the Purple Heart awarded to him but I don't know what happened to it after her death. He was in the Tough Ombra (not sure I spelled that correctly) Division. He survived the D-Day landing but was killed a few days later while advancing through France.
M. Family (his brothers and sisters) said no, BUT my mom (she rememebered him) said she thought he had been and I found a WWll draft card where he told them he was married but that is the only evidence I have, my mother thought the ladies name was Thelma that is all she rememebred.
14. Mary Enoma Long (my grandmother) B. 14 Jul 1914 Nowata County, Oklahoma D. 29 Jan 1984 Miami, Ottawa County, Oklahoma Buried in GAR Cemetery in Miami, Ottawa County, Oklahoma.
M. wasn't married the first time, this is the man have been told was grandfather by one of my Aunts, his name was Charles Scott Welch. The only man I found with that name in census records for the place and time was a really old man about 50 years older than my grandmother and in a differnet area of the county, at that time so I don't think it was him, also my Aunt Dora told me she knew the man as he was a ranch hand on the adjoining farm to their father's land.

M: 1st time not marred had a daughter 8 months after my mother was born hearsay she and my mother had same father Charles Scott Welch no one spoke of it in front og my grandmother or my Aunt. I saw a picture of her daughter Lela Long once and she and my mother looked very much a like the only difference was my mom was dark skin, dark hair-black, prominent Indian features where Lela had blonde hair and alittle lighter in skin tone. Lela died 5 months before her tenth birthday in a auto accident, long story.

M.1937 Afton,Oklahoma to Johnny Louis Southworth B.1906 D. 15 Dec 1966 Picher,Ottawa County,Oklahoma
Aunt Dora was my favorite Aunt. She was kind, sweet and gentle and didn't mind hearing or telling a few off colored jokes I think she got a kick out of making people blush sometimes, a church lady too never had a bad word to say about anyone and didn't judge anyone. She loved and adored children, her nieces and nephews and others she knew even if they were not family. She had one child but it didn't survive when she went into premature labor with him and she never had another one.

I hope this helps. If you need more I have several generations but like said just this family was/is large and I have some of their children and grandchildren of the sisters and brothers. I do have census records and some other paper forms for some people but not on all and in differnet generations. But I do hope this will get you started and if you need more let me know.
