Charles Long, Merchant

Charles Long (Emma Long Brueggeman's father) was a merchant in Springfield.  The building where his store was is still standing and has been occupied for many years by a jewelry store.
Charles' business had a variety of products.  Sometimes, it was featured as a bakery and seed store.  We are lucky that many of the Springfield City Directories have been scanned and indexed.
1871-1872 City Directory lists him as GROCER

The 1887 Directory lists him as a baker, confectioner, bulk seed and  a fancy grocer.
