"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.
