Mrs. Lottie LONG, daughter of Charles and Emma Cross RIDDLE, was born at Clintonville, Pa., December 13, 1873 and departed
this life August 19, 1952 at the age of 78 years.
In 1900, she came to this area to visit relatives and friends and chose this locality for her permanent home. Here she
met and on October 10, 1900 she was united in marriage to Nathaniel Braden LONG. Her husband preceded her in death

For 52 years, Mrs. LONG has been a loyal member of the Shannon City United Presbyterian Church, most faithful in her
attendance at all of its services, and active in all its work. Her greatest wish in her last days was to be able to
