Survey by: Barry Whitfield, 2009
This graveyard is in a bad state of
disrepair. It is over grown and many of the headstones are broken and lying on the ground.
There may be some that are completely covered with leaves that I missed.
The WPA Survey, names this graveyard as the Dick Long Family Cemetery. However, some of
the death certificates of those buried there, names the graveyard as The Jessie Rainie
Cemetery and others The Long Cemetery. Jessie owned the farm for a time, he was the
son of Richard H. Long. I believe this grave is on the farm of Richard H.
A number of the people buried there are descendants of Richard H. Long:
William B Long (son)
Robert Davis Long (son)
Susan Dixon (daughter-in-law)
Green Jefferson Clayton (son-in-law)
Chestina T. Evans (granddaughter)
William M. Evans (grandson-in-law)
James T. Evans (great grandson)
Nora E. Evans (great granddaughter)
Myrtle Evans (great granddaughter)
R. L. King (grandson-in-law)
John M. Long (son)
Mary Fannie Dillihey (daughter-in-law)
Buried in graveyard
Based on Death Certificates:
Mary Fannie Dillihey wife of John M. Long, born 5 Feb 1849, Died 21 Apr 1922. Death
certificate lists her place of burial as Jessie Long Family Cemt.
John M. Long son of Richard H. Long and Arrilla Mann, born 18 Dec 1849, Died 18 Sep
1928. Death certificate lists his place of burial as Long Burying Ground.

This location is a guess on may part since my last visit to this cemetery was many
