Wm. A. Mitchell, History of Linn Co, KS, c 1928, Page 176.

"When the war (Civil War) came on Amos W. Long was elected a captain in the Sixth Kansas Militia and went with his company to meet Price at Westport, leaving his family alone. On October 23 (sic, s/b 24) Grandfather Long went out on the prairie to drive the cows home. In the distance he saw a number of men riding toward him. He rode to the home of a neighbor nearby, finding only the wife at home. She wanted to hide him in her house, but he said no one would harm a man seventy-six (sic, s/b 56) years old and he would hurry on down a ravine and hide his money and valuable papers. As he emerged from the ravine the rebels rode out from a bunch of trees and shot him dead and rode away without touching the body. The neighbor woman carried the sad news to the family and the two women took the body home amd cared for it."

Newspaper Article, The Border Sentinel, Mound City, KS, 28 Oct 1864.

"The retreat of the rebel army is marked not only by robbery and desolation of the wildest kind, but the fiends were not content with that. Six miles north of Trading Post they murdered Samuel A. Long, aged 56 years; he was previously robbed of his money."
