Death Records

Charles D. Long

Canadian Co., Oklahoma

THURSDAY - May 10, 1923


Charles Demetriu Long died at his home in West Yukon on Wednesday, May 2, at the age of 77 years. The funeral was held Friday, May 4 the services being conducted by Rev. Stansbery of the Baptist church and interment made in the Yukon Cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Long came to Oklahoma 28 years ago. He was born in Athens County Ohio, and in 1866 was united in marriage to Miss Ellen Whaley. To this union was born one child a daughter Della Long who died about four years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Long for some time made their home in Marion County Ohio, whence they moved to Nebraska and a few years later to Kansas. A few years later the family came to Oklahoma where Mr. Long engaged in farming and stock buying and was said to be one of the best stock buyers in Oklahoma.

After leaving the farm, Mr. and Mrs. Long made their home first in El Reno and later in Oklahoma City, but the condition of Mr. Long health became such that they decided on change of climate and journeyed to California where they resided for some time, returning to Yukon about two years ago.

While still a young man Mr. Long became a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church in Ohio and continued in that faith until his death. The patience with which he bore his sufferings the last year, during which time he was a confirmed invalid, attests the fact of his strong Christian character.

Mr. Long leaves behind him an enriched record of a long life well spent in Christian service and right living. He leaves to mourn his death his wife, Mrs. Ellen Long, several brothers and sisters, a son-in-law, Mr. Frank Asbill of Oklahoma City, one grandchild, little Charles Asbill of Oklahoma City and also a host of friends and acquaintances.


We wish to express our heartfelt thanks for the kindness of our many friends and neighbors in the illness and death of our beloved husband and brother and for the beautiful tribute of flowers.
