Re: Reuben Long born 1820 Alabama
I have an Edward Long b:1810 in Alabama. I have not found his parent, yet.
My Edward married an Alcey (Ellis or Stewart) I believe b:1814 in TN. She was said to have been named after her aunt Alcey, who had recieved a land grant in Alabama.
Edward and Alcey are found in the 1850 Hopkins Cnty, TExas census with their children that are shown as being born in TN.
I have a 25 marker dna match with Johnny Long of NC and Nicholas Long of Ark., we have yet to find our common ancestor.
My Long's are said to have migrated into Texas in the mid 1840 from KY.
Samuel, Solomon and Reuben are common names in my ancestry.
WOuld you have anyone that might fit into this catagory.
