      Found you in the Oldham Database of Rootsweb. I descend from Jonathan's brother Joel Longley. Their parents were William and Mary Ann Longley. William was born in the New Jersey Colonies and Mary Ann ___ was probably born in Loudoun County, Virginia.

      I show Jonathan born 1 Jul 1788, probably in Loudoun County, Virginia. He died 19 Feb 1851 in Benton, Polk County, Tennessee, near the Ocoee River. I show Sarah's death being after 1872, also in Polk County, Tennessee. You show she died 14 Jun 1827 in Fayette County, Indiana. I would like to know more about this date. Jonathan and Sarah married 28 Aug 1810 at her father's home in Sevier County, Tennessee. This was taken from War Pension files from the National Archives. I was trying to connect to either Jonathan or Joel as my ancestor at that time.

      I would like to have the names of the children of Jonathan and Sarah. I show they possibly had 12 children. This was gathered from census records. I may be wrong about the count, as I show they had 2 sons, before one was named James, and you show her father's name being James. Since the Longley's appeared to use the old naming pattern, James should have been the second son.

      I am so glad you found the database! I have been trying to find anyone researching this family for many, many years! Unfortunately, we have very little info on Sarah and Jonathan. We know they were in Sevier County, Tennessee. Sarah is listed on the Roster of Members of the Baptist Church and also in her father's will. Although another researcher claims she died in Fayette County, Indiana, I have never been able to find any proof. I always wondered if she remained in Tennessee when the rest of the family moved to Indiana.

      Her father and five of her brothers, starting with John and Stephen (my husband's line) came to Fayette County, Indiana abt 1813. They later returned to Indiana with much of the family about 1820. I will look through my research notes and see if I can find anything else on this family. I will also call a fellow researcher in Ohio tomorrow and see if she can recall any other info or where she got the info that Sarah died in Fayette County, Indiana

      I don't have any of her childrens names in the database and currently we are working on linking her father James into the proper family in Virginia. There is some dispute as to his parentage.

      > Jan, I am so glad we made contact. We are related since I descend from Joel and Nancy Bodine Longley. Jonathan was the oldest and a Fifer in the War of 1812. I have a lot on the Longley family, but lacking some names for the children. I have been searching for these families for years, also.

      Keep in touch, Juanima
