      The census of 1790 shows over twen-
      ty De Longs living in New York State,
      who were married and heads of families.
      Most of these were residents of Albany
      county, although some were in Ulster and
      Dutchess counties. The town of Half
      Moon (now Saratoga county) was the
      home of several of the name at that time.
      The ancestor is said to have been a
      French Huguenot, who fled from France
      to Holland, married there and came to
      New York with his family during the last
      half of the eighteenth century. He was
      first in New Jersey, then in Dutchess
      county, New York, going thence to Cen-
      tral New York, settling on a farm in the
      Cherry Creek Valley, not far from Rich-
      field Springs. His son, James, born Oc-
      tober 24, 1749, married Mary Cronkite, of
      Holland ancestry, and they were the par-
      ents of John De Long, grandparents of
      Damon H. De Long, and great-grandpar-
      ents of Dr. F. S. De Long, of Utica, New
      York.

      There is standing in Otsego county,
      New York, near Richfield Springs, in
      what has long been known as the De
      Long district, a house which John De
      Long, grandfather of Dr. F. S. De Long,
      built on land he cleared, and from brick
      made on the farm by men brought from
      Albany to mould and burn them.

      James De Long, son of the founder of
      the family, was an ensign in the Albany
      County Militia of the 9th New York Re-
      giment, and on December 19, 1775, was

      ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIOGRAPHY

      commissioned captain. He married Mary
      Cronkite, daughter of James Cronkite,
      born in 1728, and granddaughter of James
      Cronkite, born in Holland in 1685, died
      in 1777, in the old Sugar House, New
      York, used as a prison by the British.
      Captain James and Mary (Cronkite) De
      Long were the parents of John De Long,
      born March 26, 1780, died on the De Long
      homestead farm near Richfield Springs,
      Otsego county, New York, March 1, 1864.
      John De Long married Diadanna Bab-
      cock, born April 7, 1783, died June 5,
      1836, and they were the parents of Damon
      H. De Long, father of Dr. F. S. De Long.

      Damon H. De Long was born at Rich-
      field Springs, New York, September 11,
      1825, and died February 20, 1901. He was
      educated in the country district schools
      and cultivated the old homestead farm,
      located on the Stewart patent, in Fly
      Creek township, Otsego county, and there
      lived the peaceful life of the prosperous
      agriculturist until 1881, when he retired
      from farming and moved to Richfield
      Springs, there built a substantial resi-
      dence and lived until his death, two de-
      cades later. He was a widely known and
      highly respected citizen, enjoying the
      confidence and esteem of his very large
      circle of acquaintances. He was interest-
      ed in church and school, and in a quiet
      way aided these twin causes, giving them
      the aid and support of his influence and
      his personal effort. He was, for a long
      time, a school trustee and a member of
      the Universalist church of Richfield
      Springs for many years. He lived more
      than the Scriptural "three score years and
      ten," and his passing was deeply regretted
      by his community.

      Damon H. De Long married, November
      8, 1876, Mary J. Black, born in Vernon,
      Oneida county, New York, daughter of
      James and Elizabeth Stansfield (Austic)

      Black. James Black was born in New-
      port, New York, in 1812, son of Colin
      Black, born in Aberdeen, Scotland, March
      19, 1765, who came to America during the
      War of the Revolution. He married, in
      1792, Sarah Meecham, born in 1772, and
      in 1776-1777 she was taken by her mother
      to Fort Herkimer, where they were quar-
      tered for protection from the British and
      Indians. Her father, James Meecham,
      born in Connecticut, was a soldier of the
      Revolution. To Damon H. and Mary J.
      (Black) De Long a son was born, Faust
      S. De Long, of this review.

      Faust S. De Long was born in Rich-
      field Springs, New York, September 15,
      1877, son of Damon H. and Mary J. (Black)
      De Long, both representatives of ancient
      New York families. He began his edu-
      cation in the public schools, finishing in
      high school, then prepared for Richfield
      Academy, and later prepared for the medi-
      cal profession at the College of Physicians
      and Surgeons, Columbia University, New
      York City. He received his M. D. with
      the graduating class of 1901, and until
      1903 served as interne at Faxton Hospital,
      Utica, New York. In 1903 he began prac-
      tice in Utica and there continued in honor
      and success until 1907, having during that
      time served upon the surgical staff of
      Faxton Hospital, also caring for a large
      private practice. He is an ex-president of
      the Utica Medical Club, member of the
      Medical Library Association, Oneida
      County Medical Society, and the New
      York Medical Society. While his profes-
      sion was the great interest of his life, and
      nothing was allowed to interfere with his
      duty as a physician while practicing, Dr.
      De Long acquired business responsibili-
      ties and became president and treasurer of
      the Utica Steam Engine and Boiler
      Works, and an official of the Universal
      Boiler Compound Company, these inter-
