These are the headstones of John Long and John Long Jr, at Pioneer Cemetery in Rockford, Michigan. Per John Jr.’s entry in Chapman’s History of Kent County, John Long brought his family to the area in 1844 and settled in Sec. 27. John Jr. married Maria Chaffee and they had two children William H. and Hiram. William H. married Almeda Porter the sister of my 3rd Great Grandfather George Porter.

Happy hunting,
