Hi Charlotte It's been quite awhile since we have emailed each other... I am curious to know if you have had any luck on the Longshore / Howell / Long connection ?Sue Davis and I sort of think that maybe Amanda Longshore, daughter of John Longshore and his second wife, Kisiah, married James W. Long, son of Nicholas Long and Jane Browning.Amanda Longshore Long died in 1872 at the age of 30: The Giles County Citizen. Issue of Thursday, March 21, 1872
Mrs. Amanda, wife of James Long, and daughter of John and Kissirah Longshore, died in this county, March 7, 1872, age 30 years.
There is an Amanda Longshore age 9 in David F. Thomas's household in 1850.
In 1850 Rebecca is age 9 in John Longshore's house.
