Charles Long born Ohio in 1804. He spent time between 1841 and 1854 in Southeastern Mississippi (Harrison Co, Jackson Co, Clark Co). He and his wife purchased land in Woolmarket, Mississippi near the Biloxi River. He married a Henrietta Clark in Mississippi around 1840, he might have been married earlier. Henrietta's parents were Archibald Clarke and Elizabeth Neely. Charles died in Mobile Alabama in 1882.
There is possibly a loose family connection to James Long born 04/24/1790 in Baltimore that married Mary Ann Kirkman and John Long of Delaware born circa 1796 that married Esther Odgen.
The oldest son, Thomas and the one that seemed to follow Charles around always listed his father's place of birth as Ohio. Charles himself listed his place of birth as Ohio. The youngest son, Robert listed his father's place of birth as Louisiana in 1900.
