                married Edward J Long
                        (born 1908 Larkinsburg, Clay, IL; died ___));

               Note: There is a good bit of confusion regarding Maggie's line. Her birth and death dates match a death certificate we have, but the parents are listed as Edward Bailey and Anna Foster. The certificate does state born Illinois, Negro, which does match this Maggie. We also find a Maggie and Edward Long in the 1930 census in Fayette Co, IL (they state they lived in Clay Co, IL in 1930) that appear to be a match. They have daughters Ollie (born c. 1933 and Susan Ellie Marie with them. If anyone can help clear up any confusion, we welcome the assistance.
