"The following article is about Elizabeth Kiser (27 Aug
1771- 27 Apr 1828) who married George Long. There were no children
of Elizabeth Kiser and George Long. They were members
of Meadow Creek Baptist Church in Stanly Co., NC according to
Elaine Walsh research. No other information on George Long. Elizabeth
was daughter of George Alexander Kiser Sr. (11 Mar 1754-11 Mar
1830) and Mary Dove (1756-27 Apr 1836). George Kiser purchased
land from Peter Long Cabarrus Co.Deed Book 5 Pg 191. Elizabeth
was murdered by one of her fathers slaves. The following story
was copied from a newspaper article:
Shocking Murder - We learn, that on Sunday, the 27th ult.
Mrs. Long, wife of Mr. George Long of Cabarrus county, was killed
by a negro fellow belonging to her father, Mr. George Kiser.
The fellow bore a bad character, and had been forbidden, by Mrs.
Long, to visit her house, which he had been in the habit of doing
clandestinely, for the purpose of seeing a negro girl belonging
to the family. He consequently determined upon revenge; and on
Sunday, about 3 o'clock, while Mrs. Long was passing alone along
the road to her father's, the negro rushed from an ambush where
he had been, lying all day, seized and strangled Mrs. L. with
two handkerchiefs, tying one round her neck and stuffing the
other in her mouth. The fellow was apprehended the same day,
and confessed the murder. The negro girl was also apprehended
as an "accessory before the fact" she having furnished
the fellow with food while he was lying in wait, and being privy
to his designs on Mrs. L.'s life. They were both put in prison,
and will be tried at the superior court which sits this week
in Concord. Source:Western Carolinian RRsw newspaper Tues. 13
