My wife Mary's Longacre family settled in the Philadelphia area before the Revolutionary War. There are a couple relatives around but I doubt we will stop by to visit.
A year ago some Longacre cousins had a marker put on the grave of Israel Longacre and his wife. He lived here and served in the Revolutionary War so he had a close up view of the first 4th of July festivities.
Israel Longacre is buried at St James Church in the Kingsessing community of Philadelphia.
