Looking for John B Long 1889 Kentucky

+8 votes

My husband's grandfather just recently passed away and he doesn't know much about his father's side of the family. I have managed to get to John B Long born Feb. 14, 1889 in Roberts, Kentucky. I have not managed to find his parents or any siblings. It is important to both of us to find his father's side of the family as the only person with that information sadly is not with us any longer. Can anyone help?

If he was born in 1889, would his daughter, Zola, have been born in 1902? Maybe the birth year for Zola could have been somewhat later.

Zola M Long

Born September 5, 1902

Zola is his step daughter that married his brother. She is Cora's daughter from another marriage. But I wasn't asking about his children. I was asking for his parents and siblings.

In  this census, his brother Charlie is living with John's familya: "United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MHGV-588 : accessed 2 June 2016), John B Long, Driskill, Livingston, Kentucky, United States; citing sheet 1A, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,820,587.
