The LONG family were early settlers of New Hope Creek, Chapel Hill in 1642. They are shown on a stone Revolutionary Patriot Monument at New Hope Church as Patriots but I can find no documentation of their service in the Revolutionary war. I am trying to prove George LONG as a patriot to DAR. A family book “”Son of Carolina”” written by Augustus White LONG of Duke University wrote that George LONG fought in the Battle of Alamance which was considered the first battle of the revolutionary war. I really need help as I’ve been researching for a long time and am stuck. I do hope someone in the society is interested in helping me to prove this forgotten American Patriot. Thank you in advance. Hopefully, Suzanne Long O’Rourke”
