Elias Long, b. 1776 PA>VA>OH
I am searching for info on Elias LONG (b. Philadelphia, PA in 1776).I have conflicting info on Elias' parents.The LDS IGI record shows Elias' parents as J. Ludwig LONG and Maria Elizabetha SCHOLL.However, a bio from Jackson Co., OH, shows Elias as the third child of an Elias LONG, a native of Pennsylvania, German ancestry, and a Revolutionary War soldier.
As a young man Elias moved to Frederick Co., VA, where he married Barbara CORRELL.
Sometime during the first decade of the 1800s, Elias and Barbara moved to Chillicothe, OH, until 1818, when they moved to Jackson, OH, where Elias died in 1860.
Elias and Barbara had 6 children.I can identify 5:Andrew (b. 1810 in VA); Emma (m. BOWLES/BOLES); John L. (b. 1825 in Jackson, OH and d. 1898 in Jackson, OH); and Josiah (b. 1812 or 1814, d. 1863 in Jackson, OH) m. Mary Ann JOHNSON.
I've seen conflicting info on the 6th child.I am aware of 2 descendancy charts showing an Elias, Jr., b. 1835, m. Emily CARRICK, as: 1) son of Elias and Barbara, or 2) son of Andrew and Eliza JAMES.So either Elias, Jr. was Elias' son or his grandson.
Does anyone have info which can expand on/confirm/clarify the above info on Elias and his family?
Thanks for any help,
