Biography*   From the Chapter on Little Beaver Township in the book "History of Lawrence County Pennsylvania, 1770 - 1877, by S.W. and P.A. Durant."

"Charles Long came from Rockbridge county, Virginia, about 1804-05, bringing two children with him to a place in Columbiana county, Ohio, just across the line from the present residence of Israel Long, in Little Beaver township. A child was born somewhere in the mountains while Mr. Long was on his way with his family, and his wife was left behind, he subsequently going[sic] back after her. He had been here about 1801-02, and entered the land on which he settled, paying two dollars per acre, and purchasing an entire section. His son Charles lives on a portion of the old farm. The farm now owned by Israel Long, in Little Beaver, was purchased by his father, of the Pennsylvania Population Company's agent, Enoch Marvin, that is, one hundred acres of it. The other hundred Mr. Long purchased of a man named Andrew Johnston, who had probably settled it. The location is [p. 62] exceedingly fine, being on a gradually-sloping hill, and commanding a fine view of the territory around, in every direction, except toward the West, where a belt of timber along the State line shuts it off. Mr. Long has greatly improved the place, and has a fine property."2
