  FYI, E. L. (Elisha) Long and G. E. Rowe (variously found Georgetta and Georgia E Long Rowe) were siblings of my great-grandfather John Fletcher Long. I suspect that my great-great-grandfather, Evans Long, is buried there as well (he died in 1875), but I haven't found any evidence supporting that.  Dr J.A. Applewhite was Evans' doctor (he signed an affidavit stating he was  in attendance when Evans died) and also funded many loans to the Long family  over the years (found in deed books at the Vaiden County Clerk's office).  (submitted by Tina Rajala;  trajala@cox.net  August 9, 2003)
