Query: MOHAN/CLARKE/LONG of Marion County

Looking for descendants of Bessie (Mohan) and Michael Clarke who emigrated to Indianapolis from Ireland in the 1860's or possibly early 1870's. Her brother James Mohan also emigrated. They lived on S. West Street. Bessie later lived with her daughter Elizabeth M. (b. 1886) who married Edward J. Long in 1919. They had two children Edward (b. 1921 or 1922) and Marie (b. 1923). I cannot find anyone beyond the 1930 census. There is a 1942 draft card for Edward Long, Sr. that states that he worked as a molder for the Kinsley Foundry, and lived on N. Parker at that time. According to a 1951 Indianapolis directory, Elizabeth M. Long (now widowed) still lived on N. Parker.

Elizabeth was my grandmother's first cousin. There are many relatives still living in Ireland and England that would love to find out what happened to these distant cousins and their descendants.
