My Longcor relatives come from Sussex County, New Jersey. My 4x g-grandfather Peter Longcor married Abagail Haines on 16 Geb 1797 in Sussex County, New Jersey.

They had 13 children: Leonard, Margaret (my 3x great-grandmother); Nancy, Issac, Priscilla, Mercy, Silas, Salem, Peter Haines Longcor, John, Anthony, Washington, and George.

My 3x-great-grandmother married John Dickey on 3 Nov 1819 in Rome, Athens, Ohio and they had 5 children: Thurssia (Clarissa); Mary Saline (Salina) Newhouse Harris; Margaret, Lucrette (Lucretia); and Solomon S. (this is where my line continues.

The family stayed in Ohio I know from at least 1819 till 1840. By 1840, the family was living in Clinton Township, Elkhart County, Indiana, Margaret's husband John died 19 Apr 183 in Clinton Township and was buried there in Jackson Cemetery. By 1854 Margaret and her children move to Jasper County, Iowa where her son Solomon is now head of the household. Clarissa has passed and is buried in teh cemetery Mary Saline is married to Jonathan Newhouse, Martha is still single, and Lucretia has married a man named Thomas Whitney.
