  • Notes 
    • “When in 1843 Isaac LONG spied out the land in Ogle County he started something destined to have much to do with the future of our church in this section. He liked the prairies but he loved a maiden in Maryland so he went back home and married Catherine HIGHBARGER. His report of the West was so so glowing that in the summer of 1845 his father, Jacob LONG, and nine or ten children, along with three or four other families, one of which was the Isaac ROWLAND family, decided to come west too. They loaded into heavy wagons that were drawn by four or six hourses such of their possessions as they could bring with them. They drove their cattle through. On June 19th they bade farewell to their Hagerstown friends and began their tedious trek towards the setting sun, arriving at the cabin of John FRIDLEY, LONG’s brother-in-law, on July 31.

      Consider the LONG family. There were the parents, Jacob, an elder, and Catherine; their three daughters, Susanna and husband, Henry COFFMAN; Catherine and husband, David BUTTERBAUGH; Sarah and husband, Joshua SLIFER; all of these except COFFMAN were members of the church. In addition to these were six other chldren: Isaac and wife, Catherine; four sons and one daughter, unmarried. The LONG families entered the government land north and east of what is now Maryland. These families became the nucleus from which the West Branch Congregation grew. The following spring the tenth of the LONG children, Mary and her minister husband, Samuel GARBER, also came west and settled at the villiage of Maryland, living in the house a few rods from the present Old Order Meetinghouse.” p. 26 Jacob Long was elder in charge in the early years of the West Branch church. p. 27 “...Rev. Jacob Long a native of Washington County, Maryland born in 1784 and who was the son of Isaac Long, a native of Pennsylvania of German ancestry....Jacob Long grew to manhood in his native country and there married Catherine Friedly (sp), a native of Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and daughter of Andrew Fridley, of Swiss descent.” p. 155 Note: Andrew is the brother of Catherine. John is her father., , ,
