Re: Long(Lang)Ludwig,1740 Franklin Co.Pa.
I am searching my Long/Lang family of Lancaster PA..My John Long was 37 yrs. old during the 1880 census and his wife Mary Ann (Shields), was 31.John is listed as being born in PA, while his parents where from Germany.My 100 year old grandmother told me that John's father was Alois Lang from Alcasses (spelling?) and his wife Mary Meyers was from Kurlsruhe (spelling?).. she told me that their name had changed while on the train trip to PA from NY, and the conductor misspelled their name to Long... Does any of this sound familar to anyone??I have no idea what children Alois and Mary had, other than my John. I couldn't locate Alois & Mary in the 1880 census either..
Can anyone claim me as a cousin???I'm lost!
