I am looking for any information on Francis Delong, b. abt. 1777, and died Aug. 24, 1829 in West Cornwall, Vermont. Francis married Nancy Sampson, b. abt. 1776, and died Feb. 21, 1813. Their daughter Sarah "Sally" Delong was b. Oct. 1, 1799 in Vermont (Cornwall or Shoreham). She married Woodbridge Barber. I would like to find out who the parents of Francis Delong were, and where he was born.

Info I have shows Francis J. DeLong (6 May 1776 -24 Aug. 1829) married Nancy Sampson then Mehitable Preston. He lived in Cornwall, VT. Siblings were James, Aaron, Nancy, Mary. Parents were Elias DeLong and Isabel Dickenson who lived in Dutchess County, NY until around 1779. He was a 2 nd Lieut. in the First Claverack Militia Company.
There is much info about him and his ancestors in a book called "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent" by Frank J. Doherty. Book can be found at www.

Hope this helps,
C.M. DeLong

Thank you for your information about Francis DeLong, married to Nancy Sampson, and the parents and siblings of Francis. I plan to check out the book "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent". I really appreciate the information...I was stuck, now I have a new direction.

Thanks again,
Deborah Barber

I seem to have accidentally typed in your name, instead of mine. Was trying to direct it to you, C.M. Instead I made it look like you replied, instead of me.

Any way, I want to thank you again for your help.

I have my line of DeLongs that came from Cornwall Vermont. His name was Julius DeLong and he married a Julina Sanford. They moved to Illinois about 1836. If this helps let me know and I will give you more information.

I have DeLongs in my Family Tree but they are from Elmwood Wisconsin and I am not sure we are related. Have a nice day.

Since this posting in 2000, have you researched the Delong line thru Julius' father Aaron, son of Elias & Isabel?
Would like to exchange information.

Hello Barbara I saw this post about DeLong's in Vermont.

My Great Grandfather was born in VT, so it says on a 1910 census in Southampton, NY, and resided on Long Island. His name is George Gregory DeLong b. abt. 1886 in VT. He was married briefly to my Great Grandmother Ollie Field and had 2 children by her; George G DeLong jr and Jessie DeLong both deceased. I sent for his Birth Cert but I have to know what county he is from and I don't. I believe his father came from Canada? not sure about that.

Any help would be appreciated
