Adam M. Long, died March 2nd, 1884, aged 81 years - Cancer was the cause of his death. He was born in Rockingham County, Va., and was never out of the State. He was very fond of his home and spent but little time therefrom.

At the age of twenty years, he was married to Agnes J. Barley. They located near Fellowship, and lived there peaceably and happily together for sixty-one years.

Seven children were born to them, two of whom are numbered with the dead. Five live to mourn the loss of a loving father, and to comfort an aged mother. He has been, from early life, an acceptable member of the United Brethren Church. His sufferings were not long but severe, yet, during his illness, he always manifested a spirit of resignation, and said he was ready if the Lord called him hence.

He was a good citizen, an obliging neighbor, a devoted husband and a kind father. His remains were interred in the family burial ground, March the 4th, in the presence or a large concourse of people.

Weep not for him, "there are no tears in heaven." B. W. R
