Re: LONGS LINCOLN CO NC,MACON CO,EARLY 1800
I called my sister (she has the Long book) and got this information:
Elisha Thomas Long
Mary Ann Ward
Malcom Preston (my family)
My grandfather Simeon Martin Long was married to Sevilla Clementine Young. She was from Clayton, Georgia. They had two sons Milo Brabson Long and Anderson Hayes Long both born and raised in Scaly. I believe Grandpa was the postmaster there. The family moved out west to Montana where they adopted my dad and then they all moved to Washington state.
I'm sure there is more in the Long book. My mom has been working on this for a long time. She says that she corresponds withMyrtle Dowdle who worked at the visitor's center in Franklin. Myrtle has moved to S. Carolina but they still write.
I know we had some pictures of Scaly in the early days but my Mom gave most of them to my cousin and it's a bit hard to get them back or get copies. Grandpa Long was also a photographer.
Hope this helps,
