Started doing this after the death of my first parent. I found it impossible to find people to tell them of her passing. Then experienced a letter to her, 2 yr after the passing.

This got me to wondering what else I didnt know about my own family and so started digging and running into relatives that were doing the same. I startd in 1994, but they had been doing it before that and kept me encouraged.

Ive met so many wonderful people in my search, and love the stories that have come from it. Im still learning but will share what I have if you want to come along on the journey
PEACE

Peter Longcor
Hi, I took a photo of Peter S Longcor marker in Bowmans Grove Cemetery. The quality is very bad I will stop again and try for a better shot. I also located a Mary L Longcor "mother" 1870- 1934 and a Walter Longcor and 1895- 1959.

Longcor Family
Do you have a copy of the George Ira Herrick chart?
It's was compiled in 1918 for the Hughes family but is full of Longcor information. It's hard to read and a bit confusing. If you can send me an email address that I can send it to it's well worth it.
there are 10 pages to it and each page is about 3 to 4 meg. I only have photo's of one of the scrolls. The original 3 scrolls are in the Kalamazoo Mi. Museum. The other 2 scrolls deal with the Hughes family only.

Salem Longcor

Salem IS a descendant of the Longcor's of New York. The Longcors of Michigan are also related. In fact you can find the Longcor family as Loncher, Longcor, Longcoy, Longcore, Lonker, Lunker, Longcur, Lonkert, Longeor, Lo*Gcor, Longacre, Lonyeor, Longeor, Loncher, Lonccor, Longcos on Census sheets and Death Certificates all across America. There all descendant from Johann Michael Langhaar.


As far as the cemetery not having any record, ask yourself, what was the quality of record keeping back in 1865? About 140 years ago. The cemetery will tell you that there are many graves that they do not have records of. So to assume my memorial is erroneous is completely with out merit.

It was 1900 before Death certificates were required and that was not really enforced till about 1920, depending on what State you were in.


There is No marker. I walked the cemetery looking for one back in 1991. What I did have is a copy of part of a letter written by a "Kate" Longcor that was given me by the daughter of Ollie Gladiolie Parsons, the one that married Sherman Soule, the Grand Daughter of Anthony Longcor, brother of Salem.

Salem lived between the Williametta river and the Snake about 1/2 mile from the "Burial Ground" South of Salem. The family was having trouble making it since Salem passed and were lamenting moving.

The Williametta is still there and easy to find. The Snake River is a different matter. There is a water way just East of the cemetery. Today it's not called "Snake".


"Kate" Longcor is a bit of a mystery. It maybe a nick name or the wife of a Longcor, were not sure. The letter was sent to Anthony "Dock" Longcor, my Great Grand Father.


The only "burial ground" that fits is the one Salem is memorialized in.
I have nothing to indicate the Longcors from Michigan knew the Longcors from Clark Co. Mo. I also have nothing that indicates they didn't. If they did know each other they may not have known they were related.


Salem Longcor 99515673 is the son of Peter Andrew Longcor of Iowa 72255427, the son of Abraham Longcor of New York102774613.

Bryan Asher Longcor of Oregon 24547245 is the son of Gabriel E. Longcor of Michigan 52102416, the son of John Longcor of Michigan 91648909, the son of Abraham Longcor of New York 102774613.

All this is very well documented and agreed to by several branches of the associated families.

Salem Longcor
there is no record of a burial for Salem Longcor at Salem Pioneer Cemetery in Oregon; the Longcor family members buried here, Byron and Eliza Jane, and John and Elizabeth, were born in New York and came to Oregon via Michigan. Salem Longcor's ancestry seems to be in the Illinois and farther south and on to California.

RE: George Fontain
I am no relation to George Fontain. I just happened to have his name on a page that I got from the cemetery for my family. I have transferred his memorial to you. Glad he has found a home.

RE: Logan
If you will go to each memorial that you wish me to transfer and click on edit, then click on "other" edits and ask for a transfer that way, I will be happy to transfer your family's memorials to you. Thanks!

RE: Logan/Brakebills
Logan's Chapel -

I don't have any independent research but found a history at http://boards.ancestry.com/localities.northam.usa.states.tennessee.counties.blount/3061/mb.ashx

he indicates -

David Logan gave the ground for the church and graveyard, an hence the name Loganís Chapel. The first church was built of hewn logs and stood almost in this site of the present structure.
