Birth: 1832
Tennessee, USA
Death: Aug. 30, 1864

Farrah B. Long;

Killed in the time of war ( Civil War ).

About August 30, 1864 seven men were killed down on the Osage River. They were taken prisoner and marched out on a sandbar and shot down. The bodies of six of the seven men were buried. One has been moved.

The markers read:
Capt. Babcoke recovered these 7 soldiers and buried them here.
Murdered by Bushwhackers - 1864.
Lt. Starling was given the mission of capturing a Confederate General Crabtree operating South of Jeff. City.

Lt. Starling and 7 enlisted men located General's H.Q. on Curtman Island in the Osage River in Miller Co., Mo.
The patrol was ambushed and executed by firing squad on Aug. 30, 1864. One of the men with Lt. Starling was released because he was young.
Only seven men died.

PHAROAH (Farrow) LONG was born in Tennessee about 1832, a son of John Long (1801-1888) and his wife, Nancy ( 1804-1891), both natives of North Carolina.

He married Martha Hix/Hicks in Miller County in January 1851. They had two daughters, Nancy J. Long and Jemima E. Long. Pharoah, called Farrah, died at the age of 32 years and is buried at Allen cemetery where his parents are also buried. (Some have not agreed that Pharoah is actually buried at Allen Cemetery).
