Notes


Note for:   George R. DeLong,   1745 - 1820         Index
From DeLong Book
Preface- John Francis DeLong 1864-1951 was very interested in his family history. He spent much time in later years writing down what he know about his family, both on his father's line and his Mother's. In 1949 when 85 yrs old he wrote this sketch: Alexander DeLong, my grandfather, was born Mar 3, 1805, and died Jul 17, 1878. He is buried in the Old Downey Cemetery along Indian Creek, east of Andover, Mo. This cemetery was abandoned long ago, but there is a stone there for my grandfather. He had a brother George, but the family loast all track of him. The name DeLong is a French name. There is a tradition that there were 3 brothers and that the family originally came from Frnace. But all I know is that Alexander DeLong came from Marion C, In. and settled in Jones C, Ia. In 1856 he moved with his family to Decatur C. Ia.

Genevieve DeLong of Lamoni, Ia 50140 on Nove 26, 1972 wrote: These facts- that Alexander was of French descent and that he lost all track of his brother intrigued me. Mrs. Thelma DeLong Palmer 6920 Forest St. Commerce City, Co, a descendant of Samuel DeLong, who was a son of Alexander, has done much research on the DeLong line. It was she who found the Father of Alexander on the DeLong line. It was she wo found the Father of Alexander (James) and also his grandfather (George). By corresponding with her, I have been able to write his history of the DeLong family. John Baldwin III 2597 Hampshire Apt 25 Cleveland, OH 44106 has done extensive research on different DeLong lines. These have been compiled into different volumes. Our line of DeLongs he has labeled Volume III. Mrs. Palmer has received much infromation from him. It is my desire that the many descendants of Alexander DeLong will find this history informative and that they will continue to write their own history where I have left off in order that their history will not be lost but will contiue for their postierity. The wurname DeLong seems locational in origin and is associated with the French meaning, "one who came from Long, a large place". Different spellings are common; thus we find DeLong, Delonge, deLong, deLonge, LeLangue, Long. The name DeLong means that they came from a large place in France. Halbert's Ira Rd. Bath, Oh, has the DeLong coat of arms. The DeLongs were Huguenots (French Protestants). In a book called "The US Biographical Dictionary" there is a biography of the Hon. James DeLong of Independence, Ks. He is a brother of our Alexander DeLong. It states that the DeLongs originally came from France near the Rhone River and left France to escape persecution by Catholics. We may never know our first ancestor who came from France. The earliest record we have is of a James DeLong in Pa., probably born about 1720. There are two references to him. Info. found in the Pa. Archives Vol. V:78 Bedford C. gives the names of 31 mend under arms to join the fight in the Rev. War at Kittaning. James DeLong is listed as the 11th man. The date is Aug 2, 1778. The other is that James DeLong was found in the supply rates list of Fannett Twp, Cumberland C., Now Franklin C, Pa. in 1780 together with George and David who were no bout his sons. Supply rates were the same as taxes paid for land and cattle. It wasn't then called taxes. Older or disabled men gave goods rather than fight.

The earliest record we are sure of is a George DeLong. Tradition and location suggest there were 5 children, and that George had brothers David, Jonathan, and Isaac, and a sister Mary. We assucm George was born in Pa. as his brother Jonathan was. David warranted land in Fannett Twp, Cumberland, Pa in 1766. In the 1790 census he was living in Mifflin C., N. of the Juanita R. next to his brother George
