Hello, Many years ago, while on a vacation to New Orleans to visit my father's cousin and her husband, I was told by my father's cousin that our family was related distantly to John Richard Long aka Dick Long leader of the "Dick Long Orchestra" that used to perform at the Nankin, Curtis Hotel and on W.C.C.O. radio in Minneapolis, back in the 30's and 40's. I am in the process of trying to find out how my family is related to Dick Long. I have not been able to find the connection as of yet, but I have a strong possibility in the fact that I have a relation by the name of Margaret J. Kierce who was born 1864 in Ohio, and died on October 25, 1927 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Margaret was married to Perry A. Long who was born October 10, 1861, and died on August 2, 1910 in Minneapolis. Perry A. Long's father was Perry A. Long Sr. born: 1798 in Kilkenny, Ireland, and died on September 5, 1897 in Minneapolis.His mother was Mary, born: 1816, died: July 13, 1883. I am wondering if there are any Long family relations out there who might know if there is any relation between John Richard "Dick" Long and Perry A. Long?
