Biography

Charles D. DeLong migrated from Vermont to Loyalton, South Dakota in 1886, one of the many who settled in that area. His wife Ruth Melissa Blanchard DeLong is buried at Loyalton. Their daughter Emma Irene married Frank Barton, my great-grandfather. Emma and Frank's son, Sidney Barton was my grandfather. I am proud to have a relative who served in the Civil War.
