Birth: Jul. 7, 1847
Guernsey County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 10, 1922
Noble County
Ohio, USA

Charles was born in Beaver Twp., Guernsey Co. which in 1851 became part of Noble Co., OH.

Charles was a son of Dr. John Francis & Julia (Turner) DeLong Jr.
Charles Augustus DeLong served in Company G of the 176th Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

The book "History of Noble County, Ohio, with Portraits and Biographical Sketches of some of its Pioneers and Prominent Men" (1887), published by L. H. Watkins & Company, shows on page 269, bottom of the first column, a listing of "Noble County in the War" including Private Charles DeLong, age 18, who enlisted on 16 September 1864. Although Charles wouldn't have been 18 until 7 July 1865, it is possible that he falsified his age in order to enlist in the Union Army.
