At age 16, he had a falling out with his father over slavery so he took a horse and left, going northwest. Between 1829-1842 he lived in Waterloo, Fayette, Indiana where he helped build a mill race for the Troxell family on the west fork of the White River. Long married Elizabeth Troxell on 3 January 1839 in Connersville, Fayette, Indiana; the couple was married by Elisha Vance. By 1842, the couple and their infant son, Jacob, had moved to land purchased on the west and northwest of the Barrens, St. Joseph County, Indiana which was then dense forest. By 1850, the area became known as Liberty Township. The couples remaining 10 children were all born in St. Joseph County. Long is found there in 1859 as a member of the German Baptist Church. On 20 February 1862 he volunteered to serve as Private in the U.S. Army, Company I, Indiana 9th Infantry Regiment. Records show he worked as a teamster, mustering out 28 September 1865. He remained living in Liberty Township, St. Joseph, Indiana through his death on 28 June 1874.
