William Long: Bronc rider and saddle maker

I am looking for information about my grandfather William "Bill" Long. He married Earlyne Graves and had 7 children: Carolyn, Diane, John, Jack, Joel, Jeff, and Jubal.

He was a bronc rider out west in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Washington in the 50's and 60's. After retiring from that he made saddles for a living.

He died on April 13, 1991.

If anyone has any shred of information on my grandfather or his family, please contact me at wnecgrad01@aol.com
