I am looking for information on the Long families of Robertson County, TN., I believe this is the family of my Edward Long, listed in the 1859 Hopkins County Texas census with his wife Alcy and their family.
Below is the Family group sheet for Edward with the children.
There is also a Morris family connection that leads back to Roberston Co. TN.
I am a FTDNA member and have a direct match to Johnny Long of NC., we have yet to find our common ancestor.
