     John1 Long  was born Ireland 1838.  John died April 20, 1878 Canandaigua, New York, at 39 years of age.  

                                   ONTARIO COUNTY JOURNAL  Fri. April 26, 1878

SAD CASE Mr. John Long, was a worthy and industrious mechanic, for several years employed in the Northern Central Railroad shops in this place. He bought a little home near the railroad bridge which crosses the outlet, making small annual payments, and gradually diminished his indebtedness.

Three or four weeks ago he was thrown out of work on account of slack times, and later he was taken sick, and on Saturday, the 20th instant, he died. He leaves a wife and nine small children, the oldest of whom is scarcely old enough to pursue any manual labor toward supporting the rest of the family. The little home is not clear of debt, and the widow and children seem to be left almost destitute. 

Surely if there is any case worthy of sympathy and material aid, this is one. We understand friends of the bereaved family have interested themselves in their behalf, and we trust the responses will be numerous and liberal. 

                           He married Catherine Linehan November 30, 1861.  Catherine was born Ireland 1842.  Catherine was the daughter of Mr. Linehan and Mrs. Linehan.  Catherine died February 21,1916 Watertown, New York, at 73 years of age.  Died at the home of her son Maurice in Watertown, NY.
