Inspiration For

This Book

Guests walking through the front door of my childhood home, were greeted by a hex sign.   A poem, by John Greenleaf Whittier, painted on the cupboard doors over the stove greeted each meal.  “For one shall grasp and one resign, One drink life’s rue and one its wine, And God shall make the balance good.”  A Margaret Fishback quote was painted on the wall over the kitchen sink, “Parsley, Parsley, Everywhere; Damn I want my vitals bare!”
My childhood was a blend of mystery, fantasy, superstition, and reality.  I was taught the meanings of symbols, numbers, plants.  Life was a celebration.  My mother was deeply spiritual and lived by her inner convictions.  Yet, she rarely preached and sent me to churches of various faiths, saying I must choose my own religion.
As a child, I took all of the above for granted.  Even though a hex sign failed to greet me when I entered a friend’s home, I assumed such things were common.  As an adult, I realized our home and family activities set us apart from our neighbors.  I began to wonder.   What spawned the odd mix of creativity, superstition and religion? 
Searching for the answers led me back into history, into the Rhine River Valley.  In the dawn of Religious Reformation, tight knit groups of family and friends, began to travel rather than denounce their beliefs.  They were strong willed, hearty souls.  Many were radicals.  About the only thing the groups had in common was one belief summed up in 4 words, “Thou shalt not kill.”  They were Peaceful Warriors.
At some point, the Long family joined the migration of Peaceful Warriors into the Penn-Dutch culture.  They spoke the Penn-Dutch language for almost a century and a half after Philip Long/Lung became one of the 1st settlers of the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia (about 1729).  By 1804, this Long family travel again, in a group of friends and extended family, to settle among Frontier Brethren and 1st settlers of Jefferson Township, Montgomery County, Ohio.  In 1906, the family traveled once again in a group of extended family and friends and settled in Oregon where a number of descendants remain.  This is their story as told by the history of the places where they lived, and the spiritual cultures they encountered.  But it is more than the story of a single family.  It is the story of many who dress like everybody else, but remain true to the Peaceful Warrior still lingering in their souls.
