GEORGE T. LONG. Since 1902 George T. Long has been located upon his present property three miles southwest of Fowler, Fresno county, where he is engaged in the cultivation of fruit and alfalfa. A native of Washington county, Iowa, he was born October 23, 1861, a son of James Long. The latter was a native of Pennsylvania who located in Washington county, Iowa, in 1856, where he engaged as a farmer until his death. His wife, formerly Margie A. Campbell, a native of Pennsylvania, survives her husband and now makes her home in Fowler, where she located in 1891. She was the mother of four sons and one daughter, of whom George T. was the fourth in order of birth.
George T. Long received his education in the common schools of Iowa, after which he followed farming until 1885, when he came to California. He first located at Selma, Fresno county, where he engaged in house painting for a time, and was then employed in a shingle mill in the mountains. He rented a place near Fowler in 1889, consisting of forty acres, later purchasing the same, and in. 1902 he sold out. In that year he bought his present property, consisting of eighty acres, twenty acres being devoted to vineyard, thirteen acres to orchard and forty acres in alfalfa. He built a handsome residence in 1904, presided over by his wife, formerly Joanna Chalmers, of Warren county Ill., whom he married in Washington county, Iowa. They are the parents of the following children: Charles, Harry, George, Jr., Arthur, Cloice and Roscoe, all at home. Mr. Long is a member of the United Presbyterian Church of Fowler, and politically casts his ballot with the Republican party. He has done considerable speculating outside of his regular work and has met with success.
