Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family heritage since I was a young child. I remember asking my grandmothers to "write down the names" Thankfully, they did and I had no idea just how many names there would be :-) I have been compiling and researching all those names for years. I am so thankful for this website. I now have a place to put all the pictures and newspaper clippings my grandmothers saved. I hope they can benefit other family members who may be searching their roots.

RE: Henry Clay Long
Hi Cathy , Thank you so much for getting back to me!! So we are related because James " Jesse " was my dads grandfather and that makes him my great grandfather :)We didn't get to know our dads side of the family due to my parents splitting up . Grandma Opal lived in California and we lived in New Jersey . She came to visit once when I was very young . I went to visit her in Cali when I was in my twenties . Never met any of her siblings or anyone in her family . Do you have any photos of the Longs ? I recently went to California and saw my aunt Grandma Opals youngest child and she gave me some photos of Opal with her siblings . Do we have Indian in us ? Aunt Hester Lee looks like she does ? I would love to talk more and share with you what I have found on the Long's :) Please stay in touch !! I guess we are cousins ? Sincerely , Debbie

Henry Clay Long
Hello Cathy , My name is Debbie Capps Carpenter and I am doing research on my father for a family scrapbook I am making . My fathers mothers maiden name was Long . Her father was James "Jesse" Long and his father was Henry Clay Long . James Jesse was born on Jan.25th, 1882 to Henry Clay Long and I can't find who his mother is ? According to a list my grandmother wrote her father had 8 siblings : Wilson ,Charles, Sarah, Amanda, Andrew,Mattie, Juley, and Tomas . She also has Henry Clay's birth as Aug, 13th , 1853. For some reason I can't seem to match James Jesse with Henry ? I did find all the other siblings. My grandma's name is Opal Virginia Long . I was hoping maybe you could help me if this is the same Henry Clay Long :) You can message me here . Thanks so much in advance for any help you can give me !! Sincerely , Debbie Capps Carpenter

Mary Ann Riddlespurger Yancey
Hello, I have Mary Ann's surname as Smith on my tree - I got this info from other trees. Do you know if she was married previous to marrying Wesley Yancey? Wesley is a direct ancestor of mine and would love to know more about Mary Ann. Thanks very much and kudos to you for all your wonderful findagrave work!

I may be wrong, but I think you have the cemetery wrong. Rose Hill is north of Wapanucka. The story is said that she was buried south of Wapanucka in a freshly plowed field. I went 3 miles south and there is an unmarked Brown Cemetery (sadly very unkept and probably on private property) on the left hand side. I checked it out and they have some markers around the 1900's. Just wanted to see what ya thought... I am her GGG Granddaughter through Dicie.
