It still does not match up. Some of my Longs were around Bolivar, Md. and
Bolivar Rd. (known as New Baltimore in the 19th c.) This is at the foot of
South Mountain near Fox's Gap. My gggf John Koogle kept a diary throughout the
Civil War. His brother Jacob Koogle received the Medal of Honor. He fought in
29 battles and was never wounded !!! I helped research an article on the Widow
of cousin Jacob Koogle, who aided Rutherford B. Hayes at the Battle of South
Mountain. She revived him from shock and loss of blood. Hayes' wife Lucy
came from Ohio and saved his arm and life. He later became President. William
McKinley was also at the battle. John Koogle had taken his horses to
Pennsylvania, leaving his wife and kids. The horses were irreplacable. John went over
the fields at Sharpsburg Sept. 18, 1862. He said it was the worst sight he
had ever seen. Isaac Long's wife Claretta's brother Martin Younkins m. Jacob
and Elizabeth Lingenfelter Koogle's daughter Caroline and took care of the

JACOB LONG, farmer and stock-raiser; P.O. Conover; was born in Pike Township,
Clark Co., Ohio, April 13, 1839, and is a son of Joseph Long, a native of
Maryland, who married Miss Ollera Clyne; she was a native of Ohio, now deceased;
Joseph still lives at the ripe old age of 77 years. Jacob was raised to farm
labor, which has always been his occupation, and thereby has accumulated some
wealth; he now resides on Sec. 5, Brown Township. In 1865, he married Lettitia
Clyne, who was born in Elizabeth Township, Miami Co., on July 23, 1840, and
departed this life, Feb 19, 1875, leaving a husband and three children, viz.,
Elizabeth a., born Dec. 10, 1865, who, like her father before her, is a devoted
member of the Baptist Church; Roberta E., born Feb. 24, 1873; and William
Albert, the second son, was born May 28, 1869. Of him we record the following
interesting facts on the pages of this history, that the future generations may
look back over the same and read the history of the family. Even though he is
what we may term a dwarf, his height is twenty-seven inches and weight
twenty-seven pounds at the age of 11 years, he is of good human form, of pleasant
countenance and appearance, playful and cheerful; he is an ornament to the family,
where he is kindly cared for by his step-mother. She was formerly Mrs. Frances
Matthews, whose marriage with Mr. Long was celebrated April 6, 1876. Mrs.
Frances Long was born in Miami Co., Ohio, March 27, 1836, and is a daughter of
