Emily Engle Randall Delong

(Page 55)

Emily Engle (Margaret2, John1) was the daughter of Margaret and Robert Engle. She was born in Royalton, Ohio, February 20, 1820. There were only a few families in Royalton at that time. Her father's family, which came to Royalton four years before her birth, was the first to settle in the township. School and church privileges were rare. She shared in the hardships and privations of those pioneer days.

We have been unable to learn the dates of her marriages, or of the death of her husbands. From her union with a Mr. Hayward she had one child. The date of her marriage with Tristian Randall we could not learn.

Her sons, William Henry Hayward and James Randall, both enlisted at the breaking out of the Civil War. Mrs. Randall herself enlisted as a nurse. She was stationed at Wheeling, W. Va., for several months. She was then transferred to Cumberland Hospital, Nashville, Tenn., and was matron of this hospital until the close of the war. On Thanksgiving day 1871 she was married to Parvin Delong. For some time they had charge of the California Hotel on Pearl Street, Cleveland, Ohio. They then moved to a farm in Copley, Ohio, where Mrs. Delong died on March 26, 1893.
