    Notes 
    • The confusing story told by Matilda's great grand daughter Georgia Quesenberry Maxfield regarding Matilda being "Samantha Delong" daughter of Captain John Delong.

      I have never found a record for the existence of a Samantha Delong. According to all records, MATILDA Delong is the wife of John/Jack Pack.

      And all records point to Matilda being a daughter of Orman and Sarah Reed Delong. That had multiple children, and there is no record of Orman being a Captain in the Military.

      Cynthia Pack's death record also list Matilda REED as her mother. Reed would have been Matilda's Mother's maiden name.

      However, there was a John Delong in Montgomery Co. the same time as Orman. There was also a Michael and a Sally Delong, all around the same age and all likey to be siblings.

      There are marriage records for Sally and Michael, tho no parents are listed. I can't find a marriage record for John, but records do indicate he served in the Militia at some point, tho his rank is not stated.

      I have been unable to track any of the other Delong's mentioned above other than Orman.

      I suppose it is possible the John Delong was married to a Matilda, and they couldn't have children, and Matilda was an Indian child that was found, again, there are no records to support this.

      Although there is no concrete proof that Matilda is a child of Orman Delong, she was in Floyd county the same time he was and there seem to be no other Delongs in the area.
