Inscriptions from the Long Society Burying Ground, Preston, Conn. By George S. Porter. [Boston: Press of David Clapp & Son.{1st printing original}]

Long Society (Congregational) Derived its name from its location on the long, narrow strip of land east of the Thames and Shetucket rivers which formed the eastern boundary of the original town of Norwich (then nine miles square), and extended from the present village of Poquetanuck to that of Plainfield. The church was organized in 1726, under the pastoral care of the Rev, Jabez Wight. The first meeting-house of the society stood where to-day stands its successor, about three miles from the centre of the city of Norwich. The church yard, from which many of the older gravestones have disappeared, lies immediately in the rear and on both sides of the meeting-house. When Norwich was divided, in 1786, Long Society became a part of Preston.
