Thanks to everyone who responded to my inquiry about St. Patrick's-Emerald. We found all the baptismal records, except one-for Patrick Glennon, born 1881 in Waverly ? Could anyone search the records at St. Joseph's in Waverly to see if he was baptized there perhaps. Would so appreciate it!

I am searching for information on my 3rd great-grandparents, Eliaceph M. (Eli) Long (ca. 1826 NC - after 1880) and Ellen Elizabeth (Betsy) _____ (ca 1824 NC or VA - after 1880). Before moving west, they lived in Alexander, Ashe, & Mitchell Counties, NC. According to local Methodist church records, Betsy had transferred her membership to the Texas conference around 1881/82. Their daughter Harriet Ellen Long (my gggrandmother) was married in Watauga Co., NC in 1891 to Thomas Franklin Yates. Their marriage certificate states that Harriet's parents (if living) were in Kansas. In 1993, I wrote the Kansas State Historical Society. In the 1900 Soundex, they found an Elizabeth Long, (b. Feb., 1824 VA), age 76 living alone in Burlington, Coffey Co., KS. (Vol. 11, Enumeration District 24, Page 7, Line 87). Does anyone know if this could be my Elizabeth (Betsy) Long, where she is buried, or what may have happened to her husband? Eli & Betsy Long's other children were John W. (b. ca. 1848 NC), Thomas (Tom), (b. ca. 1850 NC), Milton Fillmore (Milt), (b. ca. 1853 NC; m. Jan. 24, 1875 in Ashe Co., NC to Emaline (Emma) Blackburn; one daughter Rosetta, (b. ca. 1875 NC); moved west by 1880), Hazel (a son; b. ca. 1855 NC), Sarah A. or Mahala, (b. ca. 1857 NC), Harriet Ellen, (b. ca. 1859 or 1861), Margaret, (b. ca. 1861 NC), and Martha, (b. ca. 1864 NC). A letter from the Coffey Co. Historial Society in 1993 states that no cemetery record could be found for this lady.
