Biography of John T. Long
Howard County, IN Biographies





JOHN T. LONG, son of Judge T. A. and Margaret Long, was born in Marion County, Ind., August 10, 1838; he came to this county with his family and settled in Clay Township, where he spent his youthful days in playing with the old peace chief, Pete Cornstalk, and in helping to clear up the farm when he was large enough for the work. He attended two terms of school taught in an old log dwelling house on the Henry Smith farm, and afterward a school taught by a Mr. Caffee, of Crawfordsville, in a house on the Stringer farm, and at twenty two had acquired a very fair education, and was preparing to enter the Normal School at Kokomo when the war broke out; he then made arrangements to go to the front as First Lieutenant, but circumstances at home prevented his going. In 1863, he married Miss Annie Havens, who bore him six children - William G., Emma, Arthur, Omer, Ethel, and one unnamed; of these three are deceased. Mr. Long now resides with his parents on an excellent farm of 167 acres north of West Middleton; is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and he has always taken an active interest in public affairs.
