|Death: ||Oct. 16, 1876|
Cemetery is located near the former Bachelor's Peak. It is 8 miles southeast of Lampasas on the east side of SH183. It is within no city limits.
Louisiana's husband was John L. (possibly Lawler) Long. Married June 26, 1822.
From the Research of Annabelle Pennington Nobles Stone:
"Lucy Annie Payne Long and her two sons J. Newt Long and William (Billy) Long took or kidnapped the children of her daughter, Lucy Annie Long after her death. The children were taken from their father, James J. Henderson.
Lucyan Payne Long and her sons brought the Henderson children down the Ohio River to the Mississippi River, then down the Mississippi River to __________. When they reached __________, they traded their river boat for a wagon and team and proceeded to Texas.
George and Jim Henderson died and were buried in Elgin, Texas (no graves ever found). Lucyan Payne Long, her sons and two grandchildren, Jeff Davis and Polly Henderson continued to Burnet county, Texas where they homesteaded a farm about eight miles southeast of Lampasas, Texas at a place called Bachelor's Peak. This was probably around 1867/1870 (after 1870). She died on this farm on October 16, 1876, and is buried there. The graves of her two sons and herself are still to be seen at the family burial spot on this farm. They are the only three graves there.
I have heard two reasons that Lucy Long felt it necessary to take the children away from their father, Jack Henderson. One was that the father was one-half Indian and the Long family thought him unworthy of the children. The other reason was that Jack Henderson had remarried and they did not approve of this marriage. Perhaps a little of both reasons is true."
