Hello, my Name is Nancy, from Ont. Can. I have very little info, on a 3rd grt. grandparent, Margaret nee LONG/Forman , other than , speculation, regarding a probable, connection, in regards to a mar. rec. for Troy New York. I,m traceing, Long, surnames in Troy, in case there are any possible, connections, to some of her, family. Years ago, the only info, which I had on Margaret, was her birth, of 1815,a native of Co.Antrim, Irel,her dth. date,1880, in Ont.Can. , her residence, in, 1851 cens.,for New Westminister Twp.,Ont.Can., ,1861, cens.,Dorchestor,Middlesex Co.Ont.,Can., and Euphemia,Twp. (Kent/Lambton Co.) Ont.Can.a marriage, too a John FORMAN/FOREMAN, who was born in England.I had info on their 5 children, and descendents. Margarets, burial plot, and knowledge of her husband,s death, between 1861-1871,but no other info, on him. Then...a few years ago..another message, on a board, mentioned, someone else, searching for a Margaret LONG, same age, that mar. a John FORMAN, in Troy, New York. ,with reference, to her ancestor, a William LONG, marrying a Celestial BILLS, the same day, by the same minister, with ref. too them all living in Troy,at the time of their mar. with ref. of the Long,s comeing...from Canada.Well...I corresp.with Bette, and gathered her info.Speculation was her William & Margaret LONG, were siblings. Her William and Celeste died, leaveing orphoned children, and my John died, leaveing Margaret, who raised 5 orphaned children..But, not much more info, so I,ve started gathering info, on all the lONG families, that lived within the approx.time era, of their mar.,1846. I,ve just started the collection of Long surnames, with associations ,of Troy New York. I notice your,message, is a few years ago. How has your search gone? Would you like me too forward, the brief, info, of LONG, surnames, I,ve come across, with connections, too TROY ? Hopefully we could assist each other... my email, is [email protected] Look forward, too hearing, from any LONG researchers, that might have connections. Nancy.
