From the 1885 History of Steuben County, Indiana
Albert William Long was born in Steuben Township, Steuben Co., Ind., Jan. 2, 1846, a son of James and Sarah (Reynolds) Long. His early life was spent upon the farm during which time he obtained a good common-school education at the district school. When twenty years old he began a higher course of study in the High School at Angola, Ind. After three years of faithful study he accepted the principalship of the Richland graded school, where he remained one year. The years 1870-'71 were devoted to the study of natural science at Hillsdale College, Mich., which institution conferred upon him the degree of "Master Science" in recognition of his attainments in this branch of study. In 1872 Mr. Long was employed in the High School at Angola, where he taught eight years. In the spring of 1880, on account of failing health, he abandoned teaching and is at present living on the old family homestead, two miles south of Angola, which he purchased on retiring from the school-room. Mr. Long was married July 26, 1874, to Susie M., daughter of W. R. Ingalls, of Otsego Township. They have three children -- Howard, Mabel and Verna.
