Phoebe and her younger sister, Sally, made the run together in a wagon. Their older sister, Eliza, and their brother, Tom, also made the land run. They all lived on their land in tents, and Phoebe and her sister dug a well with a spade thirty feet for water. She later married Alvin Porter Long, and they were able to acquire the land they got in the run through the Homestead Act. Phoebe gave birth to twelve healthy babies--six girls and six boys. These children were raised in a sod house and lived mainly by raising hogs and eating hog meat. She made moccasins from the leather for winter, and the children went barefoot in the warmer months. Phoebe held true to her religious beliefs and would not even allow a deck of cards in the house. Phoebe died at age 65, and her death certificate reads: Paralysis-- No doctor in charge.
