Re: Longs PA>Christian Long & Sarah Brown
Is Joseph Long in your family tree?There were two.
Joseph Long, b. 15 June 1757, Philadelphia, PA.
Joseph Long, b. 18 September ?1799? Possibly in White Deer Township (Pennsylvania).
They were gunsmiths in what is present day Snyder County, Pennsylvania, and their guns are in museums.
My connection:Sarah Matilda Long, b. 28 June 1831 in Spring Township, married John G. Wagner, my gggrandfather.
I've been told the Long's moved to the mountains because it was too crowded in the areas along the Susquehanna River.Later they moved to Illinois and Ohio because they didn't have enough land to divide among their children.
Please send other Long (and spouse) names to me and I'll look for a connection.
Hope to hear from you soon.
