History of St. Joseph County, Indiana, 1880, page 928-929, had the following:
William H. Longley was born in Elkhart county, Ind., October 3, 1846, and is the son of Andrew and Mary Longley, the former a native of Pennsylvania, and the latter of Indiana. His father came to this state in 1834, and located in Elkhart county, where he resided until 1853; he then came to this county and located on Portage Prairie, and soon afterward moved to Sumption's Prairie, where he now resides. Mr. Longley remained at home on the farm until he was 16 years old, then entered the University of Notre Dame, where he took a full commercial course, and graduated in 1867; he them entered the dry goods house of John Brownfield, Esq., where he has since been engaged as salesman and book-keeper.
He was married in this city, to Miss Helen L. Searle of the same place, December 14, 1871, a daughter of Richard Searle Esq., of this place, and was born in Pennsylvania in 1848; they have one son, born January 28, 1878. In 1868 John N. Lederer formed a partnership with A.T. Coquillard and W. H. Longley. They purchased large tracts of land in Boone county, Nebraska, and platted and laid out the village of St. Edwards. In August, 1876, they formed a stock company, known as "The St. Edward's Land and Emigration Company". Mr. Longley is treasurer of the St. Edwards Land and Emigration Company, and also of the Wisconsin Land and Emigration Company of this city. Politically, he is a Democrat.

Hon. W.H. Longley, ex-mayor of South Bend, and president of the Northern Indiana Hedge Fence Company, is a native of Elkhart county, Ind., where he was born on October 3, 1846, a son of Andrew and Mary Longley, natives of Pennsylvania and Elkhart County, Ind., respectively. The paternal grandfather, William Longley, removed from his native State to Elkhart county, Ind., about 1834, of which section he was among the pioneer settlers. They came thither in wagons and located in the vicinity of Elkhart, where Mr. Longley purchased a heavily timbered and very wild tract of land. The Indians were still plentiful throughout the region, but were not hostile. On this farm the grandfather was called from life. About 1853 Andrew Longley came to St. Joseph county and settled on Sumption Prairie, where, until within a few years, he followed agricultural pursuits. Three children were born to himself and wife: William H., Josephine and Mercy. William H. Longley, the subject of this sketch, remained with and assisted his father on the home farm until he we was twenty-on years of age, receiving the advantages of the district schools in the vicinity of his rural home, his education being completed in Notre Dame College, from the commercial department of which he graduated in 1867. Soon after this he entered the dry goods store of John Brownfield, where he remained until 1888, at which time he engaged in the manufacture of knit underwear; He was one of the incorporators of the A.C. Staley Manufacturing Company, of which he was made vice-president, and held the office until elected to the position of mayor of South Bend. He is still a stockholder in this concern, and is also one of the incorporators of the Northern Indiana Hedge Fence Company. He is a stockholder in the St. Edwards Land and Insurance Company of St. Edwards, Neb. He was elected Mayor of South Bend in 1888, was re-elected 1890, during which time he was careful to guard the interests of the city and made a very efficient official. In 1882 he was made councilman from the Second Ward, in which capacity he served one term. He is one of the leading spirits of the city, and is always a leader in public enterprises. He is a member of the A.F. & A.M., the K. of P., being a charter member of the Crusade Lodge, No. 14, and also belongs to the Uniform Rank. He has been a married man since 1872, at which time Miss Helen Searle became his wife, and eventually the mother of a son and two daughters: Howard, Mary and Edna. Mr. Longley has a goodly amount of this world's goods, and is a successful and intelligent business man.3 He lived in 1901 at 215 S. William St., South Bend, St. Joseph Co., Indiana. He lived on 30 December 1931 at South Bend, St. Joseph Co., Indiana.4

W.H. LONGLEY, EX-MAYOR, DIES
William H. Longley, South Bend's eight mayor, died at 8:30 o'clock Saturday night at the age of 88 years in his home at 215 South William street. He had been in failing health for several years and his death was attributed to the infirmities of age.
Mr. Longley was the second democratic mayor of South Bend, elected first in 1888 and again in 1890. In those days the term was for two years. During the years he held office, many notable improvements were made in the city. He also served in 1882 as councilman from the Second ward and was one of the incorporators of the former A.C. Staley Manufacturing company, of which he was vice-president until 1888. This company later became the Stephenson Underwear mills, now out of existence.
Born Oct. 3, 1846, in Elkhart, Ind., Mr. Longley came to South Bend at an early age and was married to Miss Helen Searle. Mrs. Longley died several years ago. His father, Andrew Longley, was born in Pennsylvania and his mother, Mary Longley, was a native of Elkhart county. They settled on a farm at Sumption Prairie, St. Joseph county, in 1853.
After receiving the usual common school education in the district school William Longley attended the University of Notre Dame and was graduated in 1867 with a degree in commerce. When he first came to South Bend Mr. Longley entered the dry goods store of John Brownfield and was employed there until he was first elected mayor of South Bend.
In 1892 he became a member of the firm of Beeper & Longley, manufacturers of brick. Later he became a sewer contractor in connection with the late Charles Knott but he retired years before his death.
Three children survive. They are Howard Longley, of Detroit, Mich., and Mrs. Mary Altgelt and Miss Edna Longley, both of South Bend. One granddaughter, Mrs. Carl Prell, and a sister, Mrs. G.B. Summers, also reside in this city.
The body may be viewed in the residence from Monday morning until the hour of the funeral Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Services will be conducted in the residence by Rev. Charles Tupper Baillie, D.D., pastor of the First Presbyterian church. Burial will be in Highland cemetery.
Mr. Longley was a member of the Crusade Lodge No. 14, Knights of Pythias, and was also a member of the Masonic fraternity. His death leaves four ex-mayors of South Bend living. They are Fred W. Keller, Eli F. Seebirt, Chester R. Montgomery and W.R. Hinkle.1

JOHN M. SHIMP. The Shimp family is one of the oldest in St. Joseph county, and have been noted from the beginning of their identification with its interests for the sterling traits that are so characteristic of the subject of this review, constituting him a fitting representative of the name.
He is one of Harris township's most honored citizens and farmers, and is the son of Jacob and Hannah (Graham) Shimp. He was born on the 18th of January, 1848, and this county has always been his home and agriculture his chosen vocation. He received his education in the public schools of Olive township, and remained with his parents until twenty-two years of age.
On the 16th of March, 1869, he was united in marriage to Sarah J. Longley, at the residence of her parents. Andrew and Mary (Rupel) Longley, of Greene township, St. Joseph county, and they have become the parents of three children: Gertrude, who died when only two months old; Delbert, an agriculturist of Harris township; and Andrew L., a resident of Mishawaka.
In 1870 Mr. and Mrs. Shimp came to his present farm, known as the Burr Oaks, and this is one of the valuable farming properties of the township. He is a member of the St. Joseph County Farmers' Mutual Insurance Company, which has three million dollars worth of insurance in this county, and for eight years he served as its director, while during the past three years he has been its President. He has been a life-long Democrat in his political affiliations, and has held many positions of honor and trust. For nine years he served as assessor, and for two terms of two years each, was township trustee, and sixteen years ago was appointed jury commissioner of St. Joseph county by the circuit court judge, he having been the incumbent of this important office ever since. Two years ago he was the Democratic candidate for the office of county commissioner, and while Roosevelt carried the county by over five thousand, Mr. Shimp ran about twenty-three hundred votes ahead of the national ticket. In his fraternal relations he is a member of the Masonic order, No. 45, of South Bend, and in that city he also has membership relations with the St. Joseph Valley Grange. His sterling worth commands the respect and confidence of all, and he is one of the valued citizens of his native county of St. Joseph. He lived in February 1915 at South Bend, St. Joseph Co., Indiana.3

GABRIEL R. SUMMERS DIES AFTER MONTH'S ILLNESS
Hon. Gabriel R. Summers, 68 years old, owner of the News-Times, former state senator and prominent business man in this city for many years, died Friday night at 11:50 o'clock at his home, 314 West Colfax avenue. Mr. Summers had been seriously ill for four weeks with heart disease and diabetes and had been in ill health for over a year, having suffered several severe attacks of heart failure. He was taken critically ill July 23 and repeated relapses followed by a stroke of apoplexy Thursday morning caused the abandonment of all hope of his recovery. He had been in a state of coma for two days and was unable to recognize members of his family at his bedside.
Private funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the residence. Bishop John Hazen White, assisted by Rev. Robert J. Long, of St. James Episcopal church, officiating. Burial will be in Highland cemetery. The body will wile in state at the residence Monday from 10 o'clock until 3.
The active pallbearers will be Dr. John A. Stoeckley, James A. Judie, John G. Yeagley, William A. McInenry, Edward Zeitler and Edward Chierhart. The honorary pallbearers will be Joseph M. Neff, George Y. Hepler, Schuyler Robertson, William P. O'Neill, Elmer Crockett, Hon. Rome C. Stephenson, Marvin Campbell, Samuel Parker, Dixon W. Place, Jacob M. Chillas, Dr. J.W. Hill and Aaron Jones.
Surviving Mr. Summers are his wife, Mrs. Mercy Ann Longley Summers, whom he married Oct. 28, 1880, and one daughter, Mrs. Joseph M. Stephenson, of this city.
Mr. Summers was born in New Carlisle, this county, March 13, 1857, the son of Edward and Catherine Summers. After his graduation from Notre Dame university when he was 16 years old Mr. Summers returned to his father's farm in Clay township and after his father's death in 1880 entered the farming business on an intensive scale. He (?) became engaged in the agricultural implementation business in this city and Wullerton(?), this county, and in 188(?) became president of the South Bend Iron Bed company. He was one of the organizers of the Vanderheof Medicine company in 189(?) and in recent years has been in full control of the company.
He became interested in the South Bend News in 1909(?) and it was in a great measure due to his influence that the consolidation of the South Bend News and South Bend Tribune was effected in 1911. Three years later Mr. Summers became practically complete owner of the South Bend News-Times and in 1917 relinquished his duties at published to his son-in-law, Joseph M. Stephenson.
Mr. Summers was elected state senator from St. Joseph county in 1914, serving in the 69th and 70th assemblies and on several important committees. He lent his influence toward the passage of the state-wide prohibition law; the United Suffrage act(?), later held unconstitutional by the supreme court, and he bill providing for a constitutional convention (???) state which the supreme court held invalid. He was conceded to be one of the progressive members of the senate. At the (?) of his term he refused to run for re-election, his reasons being ill-health and the weight of his many business interests.
Being a firm believer in the future of South Bend, Mr. Summers became identified with many of the well known business enterprises of the city and was a heavy investor in the city's real estate.2 History of St. Joseph Co., Indiana, 1907, page 778.

Singleton Harn was born in 1790, in Carroll County, Md. He was a small boy when his parents removed to the old Friendship Woolen Mill in Linganore District. His educational advantages were limited, but he was a studious youth and managed to acquire a thorough education through careful reading and study. He learned the trade of making woolens from the wool in the rough, to the finished cloth, lindsey, and blankets. His preceptors in the business were Messrs. Marsh and O'Neil. In 1857, Mr. Harn purchased the factory and the farm of 230 acres which surrounded it, where he continued to manufacture high grade woolens until the infirmities of age became a burden, when is son, William, assumed the management. They had a deservedly large trade, and their reputation spread through several states. Their blankets were especially celebrated, selling as high as thirty dollars per pair. Mr. Harn was not only master of the art of making fine woolens, but was a thorough business man and knew well how to buy the rough and sell the finished product to the best advantage. He was a Whig, interested in political affairs, and was well-known and highly esteemed in the community. Singleton Harn was married, in early manhood, to Maria Cordelia Harn, of Carroll County, who was born in 1797. Their children are:
1, William, died aged eighty-three;
2, Abner, married Margaret Urey, died in Unionville, Md;
