Chancery: Long v. Long

In 1919, Gertrude A. (Penn) Long filed for divorce from her husband, Joseph S. Long, for abandonment.  Among the documents in this chancery case can be found the original certificate of marriage which gives the bride's maiden name, place of birth, and the marriage date of September 11, 1913.

In addition to the marriage certificate, the file contains the chancery notice published in the Manassas Journal, which includes the last known address of the AWOL defendant.

Other information found within the file included the name of the couple's only child, Hilda Long, who was born "about one year after" the marriage.
