    • from the Brown County Ohio History Book on William Evans. Father of Joseph..
      Immigrant, who came from Ireland with his wife, to Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War period. May of come from County Cork.
      Beer's History of Brown County, Ohio (1873) & Thompson's "Historical Colletion's of Brown County, Ohio" states that William Long & family came from Kentucky & as early as 1789 to Cormack's Run, near Riplay, Ohio. 5 yrs before Ohio became a state.
      History of Franklin Twp.: by S.C. Gordon M.D. William Long and his wife came to the Untied states from Ireland, and, as early as 1798, if not before, they came from Kentucky, and settled on Cornick's Run, near the present site of Ripley, where the husband died and was buried, leaving his widow and six children. About 1800 or 1801, Mary Long and her children who were not married came to what is now Franklin Township, and settled on what is known as the Joseph Long farm, where Henry Miller now lives. Nancy married Uriah Springer. Jane married John Bunner, who was a cooper(barrel maker), and the son of Ruben Bunner, and they settled on his father's farm, now owned by L. Spencer. Margaret married Isaiah Lucas, son of Robinson Lucas. Sarah married Benjamin Purdum, a tanner, who established a tan yard, the first in the township, on his father-in-law's farm where he lived for some years. Joseph (born January 22, 1784) married Charlotte Bunner, he lived on the home farm, his wife died May 17, 1855. In February, 1865, he went to Illinois, and, on October 23 of the same year, died, aged eighty-one years eight months and one day.
