  NOTE: Long list, July 1998. Rhonda Glofcheski, alglofch@sioux-lookout.lakeheadu.ca. "After the American Revolution, Jacob LONG (b. PA) tried to get land in Upper Canada but because there were two other Jacob Longs in the area, the government was confused and in the end Jacob's son William Long had to get the land. In the application Jacob Long has several testimonials about his family and life during the American revolution. Here is one from William Hutchinson who was the Captain of the First Battalion of the New Jersey Volunteers. 14th day of June 1812. To whom it may concern: I do hereby certify that I was personally acquainted with the bearer of this Jacob Long before the American war and knew him and his fathers family to be loyal subjects. Also that he and his brother Elias with diverse others of their friends and relations being.....enlisted by Mr. James Moody and myself and being warned of the time and place met us on the 8th day of September in the year 1777 intending to march with us to the British army but being attacked by a party of Rebels on the way we were despersed and separated. I saw no more of Jacob in several months but was informed that he and several others were confined by the rebels in Morristown gaol and condemned to be hanged for high treason. Their lives were spared on condition they would enlist in the Rebellious Army which they accepted and took the first opportunity to leave them and returned to his majestys first Battalion New Jersey volunteers where I have seen him doing duty as a soldier times beyond recollection. Given under my hand, William Hutchinson, Late Captain of the 1 Battalion of NJV.(Anyone have a Jacob and Elias who disappeared after the revolution? If so they came to Canada with wives and children. Elias was married to Catherine Morden (daughter of Ralph Morden and Ann Durham). Ralph was executed in Easton PA for treason.)"

Per the clairm, Marcellus talked Jacob into buying a tract of land and this was the dispute. Jacob and Sarah filed for divorce in November 1867 but the date when it was granted was not found. Jacob and Delilah Godberry were married October 9, 1869 in DeWitt County. No further records found on Sarah but she may have moved to Macon County with her children. Jacob and Sarah's daughter Caroline Schwantes and family moved to Cowley County, Kansas, in 1869, but I don't know when Jacob moved there. He was living with the Schwantes family in 1890 when he filed for a civil war pension. August and Kate Kadau signed an affidavit stating he was very hard of hearing, almost blind and confined to bed most of the time with rheumatism.

  Article submitted by Mary Lee Gentry: Jacob Long was born in Canada, Dec. 20, 1808. I am not sure when he moved to Miami Co., Ohio, where he married Sarah Defabaugh. Sarah was born in Pennsylvania in 1812, and died near Madison, Greenwood Co., Kansas, in 1895. They moved to DeWitt county, Illinois, between 1836 and 1839. they owned a 20 acre farm in Section 6, Township 19N, Range 2E, which they sold March 15, 1866. A history of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in DeWitt County, Illinois, show that Jacob and Sarah were members of the church. The DeWitt County Militia roll-1861/62 had voluntary reserves.

Per his military record, Jacob was fourty five years old, 5' 10", light complexion, blue eyes and gray hair. His occupation was a farmer, and he was born in upper Canada. He was discharged January 23, 1863, with a disability of a disease of the bladder and rheumatism, in Woodsonville, Kentucky. He returned to DeWitt County, Illinois. records found in DeWitt Co. Circuit Court dated November 1, 1866, stated he had domestic misfortunes and for a considerable period of time was in a state of intoxication and under the influence of spirituous liquor. Sometime during this period Jacob and Sarah seperated and Jacob went to live with his daughter and son-in-law, Marcellus and Lucinda (Lucy) Sessions. Per the claim, Marcellus talked Jacob into buying a tract of land, and this was the dispute. Jacob and Sarah filed for divorce in November 1867, but the date when it was granted was not found. Jacob and Delilah Godberry were married October 9, 1869, DeWitt Co. No further records found on Sarah, but she may have moved to Macon County with her children. Jacob and Sarah's daughter Caroline Schwantes and family moved to Cowley County, Kansas, in 1869, but I don't know when Jacob moved there. He was living with the Schwantes family in 1890 when he filed for a civil war pension. (see copy) August and Kate Kadau signed an affidavit stating he was very hard of hearing, almost blind, and confined to bed most of the time with rhuematism. Jacob died December 4, 1897, in Winfield, Kansas, and is buried in Mt. Vernon Cemetary. Sarah, Lewis, Malichi, Minor, and John Long moved to Greenwood County, Kansas, in 1870. Karl and Ellen Long Schwantes settled in Coffey County, near Burlington, Kansas. I believe Minor died because his wife remarried in 1872 in Greenwood Co., Kansas. I do not know when Martha Long Coffman died but her oldest child, Elizabeth (age14) was living with Karl and Ellen, and her son George (age 10) was living with Lewis in the 1870 census. Lewis moved to Linn County, Missouri, around 1880, and Malichi moved to Sullivan Co., Missouri, about the same time. John stayed on a farm in Greenwood Co. about five miles southeast of Madison until 1895 or 1896. John and family were living in Cowley Co., Kansas, in the 1900 census, near the Schwantes family. John and Sarah had twelve (12) children.
