Family of John Long and Grace

The 1790 census in Washington County, Pennsylvania shows John Long with 4 males under 16 and 4 females in the household. It is possible that the eldest, Sarah was not living in the house at the time.

5 of the children were identified in Leckey's Ten Mile Country as Sarah, Dorcas, John, Elizabeth, and Rachel.

Therefore, the children of John Long and Grace appear to have included the following:

Name Birth Birthplace Death Death place Spouse
Sarah Long  1771 Aft 1850 (1) Thomas Wilkerson; (2) Jacob Garrison
Noah Long  28 Nov 1778 Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA 18 Oct 1855 Pemberville, Wood, Ohio Mary Elizabeth Burge
James Long  1779 Greene Co., PA Aft 1860 OH Mary Bearmore
Dorcas Long  1783 Greene Twp, Washington Co, PA 8 October 1853 Wetzel Co., West Virginia, USA Henry Kellum Goddard
Jeremiah Long  1786 Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA 1838 Jane Jones
Rachel Long  Greene Twp, Washington Co, PA John Phillips
John Long  Greene Twp, Washington Co, PA Elizabeth ?
Elizabeth Long  Greene Twp, Washington Co, PA 20 Apr 1843 Greene, Greene, Pennsylvania, United States George Garrison
James is indicated as a son of John and Grace in a land transfer that might never have been executed:

Apr 15, 1817 "John and Grace Long to James Long in consideration of $200 and also James Long agreeing to keep John and Grace during their natural lives in sufficient meat drink etc. therefore convey a certain tract of land wereon said John and wife Grace now live—150 acres—next to lands of John Miller—which had been warranted to said John Long…" John Miller’s tract bordered John and Grace’s share of the Mt. Joy tract that John had divided with his brother Jeremiah.
