Personal Information    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Matilda (Joseph) Long 
    • Identification made possible by data from Yately, England, kindly provided by Richard Johnston and Peter J. Tipton.
    Born Abt 1846  London, England UK Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Argenti/Long say birth is 27 Apr 1850, London, England, with parents William Long and Mary Edwards. The baptism and census records suggest this is not correct. In trying to determine Matilda's parentage, an inquiry to the Yateley Society produced a detailed report by Peter J. Tipton that points out various oddities concerning her own marriage. Since there's an 8-year gap between Matilda's first two children, some other factor is probably at play. She may have gone back to the UK at the end of the American Civil War (Apr 1861-Jun 1865) had their first child baptized there and then returned to NYC where the first child died.
