I am so glad I happened upon this. Trying to do this from my cell but cousin Phyllis if you're able to get this message send me an e-mail. I was talking about my memories of Afton just a week or so ago.

RE: Information please
Phyllis, I wish I could help but I have no idea who to contact for information change...I haven't tried contacting anyone for year but hopefully someone will read your post on my page and can help you.

Phyllis, y'all are always in our prayers...keeping you both close to our hearts during the up coming treatments. I haven't been on here much, so busy trying to get all our steers worked and shipped to summer grass in the Flint Hills.

Please stay in touch, sweet friend.

Love & Hugs

Old articles with familiar names
Dear Phyllis,
Its been awhile! Hope this finds you and yours healthy and happy.

I found an article recently and thought you might enjoy having the info. Its an old article, and mentions things like "The village of Bernice" and "Grand River". The oldest date I find in it is from 1922, tho I am sure it was written well after that. However, it does mention a few different Bunches and Ballards. I remember Zoe, she is mentioned and her husband. (I knew her, Grandmother helped her with housekeeping due to her blindness when I was very young, I would often go with her.) Gove Bunch, whom I also remember, and a few others. I would not be surprised if you didn't know a few more of the folks listed. They are all from Delaware county.
Percy Wyley as well as W. H. Ballard are both listed on page 2 (I believe Zoe is listed in both?)It confuses me somewhat but seems to be the same person, maybe you will understand.
Please let me know if you do!

Have a wonderful day, and God bless.

RE: Martha Berry
Hi Phyllis,

Thanks for thinking of me. If it is the 1910 Census, I already have it. I hope you are doing well. I will be traveling out to Kansas and Oklahoma next month.

RE: Atchley family history
Hi Phyllis, Sorry for the delayed response! I wish there was as much information about Martin as seems to exist for his brother Thomas. My ancestor is supposed to have taken his name from his mother, Marty Martin, wife of Joshua Atchley. There is a legend I encountered that said she was the daughter of a "Franco Martino", an Italian! But this came with a warning that there was no evidence at all for that. In a marriage document for Martin O. Atchley, his name is spelled Martino Atchley, which may be a mistake, or perhaps his first name was Martino and it changed over time. These are intriguing questions. I will have to look again at the Bible pages of my ancestor, Moses Wyatt, which has some Atchley dates. Have you seen this? I have been away from studying this branch of my family, so this will help get me back into it! I had never heard that Mary Martin had been on the Mayflower, interesting!

RE: Rose Hill Cem. Willard
RE: Rhoda M. (Long) Neff
Rose Hill Cemetery, Willard, Greene, MO
Hi Phyllis,
Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I lost my mother 3 weeks ago and have been trying to deal with that loss and everything that accompanies it.
I am President of the Rose Hill Cemetery Board. I checked our records and Rhoda's birth date is recorded as 1865. I went to the cemetery to check the stone and it is somewhat worn and almost difficult to read but I believed it read 1868. As I love a good mystery and being able to try to solve it, I began my research. I have come across the 1870 US Census, page 37, in Cass Township, MO, under her father's name, George Long. Rhoda is listed as being 2 years of age, which would make her birth year 1868. I have updated my records in the cemetery book to reflect the stone info and the census records. I was unable to locate a death certificate for her but those can be difficult to find prior to 1910.

I also got to checking the dates for her infant son, Orvil. They were listed on Find-A-Grave as b. 3/25/1878 d. 7/26/1878, which would have made Rhoda 10 years old at the time of his birth. The correct dates are: b. 3/25/1887 d. 7/26/1888.

I have sent edits on both memorial pages to correct the information. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

Deb Lowe told us he's in the Combs-Goode-Green cemetery (her understanding of a previous time to the site). That I know of, it is not listed in Washington County as of yet.

RE: Combs
Thanks. i didn't start a new one, just left yours in place. If need be, I can do so. Here's the skinny. My sister (Sandi Rambo) and I read the same info about Richard Russell farm. He at one time owned over 760 acres at that area. The actual location of the grave is off 2020 Long Run Road. My sister, our cousin Vonda, and I have been to the site. It is not easy to reach. The farm presently is owned by Don and Mary Kessler. We met her, and she was very accomodating. The picture posted was when we first got there. It has since been cleaned up by the gentleman who used to maintain it. He has kin in there that ties back to the Combs family.

You list him as non-cemetery burial. Do you have any info on where he was buried?

Added by Ron Combs on Mar 30, 2017 11:27 AM

RE: Tombstone picture
If I can track down a groundskeeper the next time I am out there I will see if they can locate the headstone for me. The office said they could not tell if there ever was a headstone placed. I recognize that area and think I may have looked for her on a previous request, but not sure. Also, there were some other Smith's in that area so if you have other family members that might have been buried there let me know.

Hello Phyllis,
Here is a list of cemeteries in the Arkansas City area: Parker, Riverview, Memorial Lawn, Springside and Hope cemetery.

I did a search on my subscription and did not find any death notices for Julia or her two small children.

Good Luck on your search

James was son of Henry Long (1765)and Lucy Mansfield (1769). Sarah was daughter of Simon Weston (1777-1843) Elizabeth Humphreys (1780-1848). James died c1880 and is buried in Murphy Cemetery in Missouri. Sarah died 30 Jan 1897 and is buried in Barry co, Missouri. Their first child was born in Tennessee, the other 4 in Indiana. By 1844 daughter Highley married Frederick Summa in Gentry co. MO and the rest of the family moved there also. Highley Long Summa (1826-1892) died in Gentry co, MO.

RE: Julia or Julie Ann Hughey
ApparentlyJulia Ann Hughey was married to Larkin Stowe Gullick. This was Larkin Stowe Gullick's third wife.
Larkin Stowe Gullick and Julia Ann Hughey had one son, Larkin Hughey "Hugh" Gullick (Find A Grave Memorial# 54649156), and Hugh married Effie Long. Effie Long was the daughter of Hiram David Long and Minnie 'Womack' Long. Apparently, the creator of the Larkin Hughey Gullick's memorial did not have the maiden name for his mother, Julia Ann Hughey. I was just updating her maiden name and parents (on his memorial). Sorry for the confusion. Perhaps I should have contacted the creator of the memorial.

Julia or Julie Ann Hughey

I do not have a Find a Grave memorial number for Julia Ann Hughey, but I have listed her parents memorial numbers below. Both memorials mention Julia. Julie married for a second time to a Tom Davis. I believe he died in Arkansas.

RE: Long family origin and Cherokee questions
Phyllis, I would love to be added to the Facebook group. Wha is the name so I can search for it? I would be very interested in seeing your records.

We live in Norman. Russell Long spent part of his childhood on the family farm close to OU's campus, so when they retired they settled back in Norman and my husband ended up at the family's favorite university even though he grew up out of state. I'm a lifelong resident of Norman.

Long family origin and Cherokee questions
Hello! Thank you for your amazing research! I have learned so much about my husband's family and am proud to be a Long!

My husband is the grandson of Russell Long and great grandson of George E. Long and we live in Oklahoma. Russell is still alive and tells the story that the family came from Germany before the American Revolution and the name used to be spelled "Lange". Is there any truth to this?

Also, I see from your profile that your grandfather was on the Dawes Roll. Are you a member of the Cherokee nation? What were your grandfather and great grandfather's names?
