Have you considered that the name may be a combination of the mother's and father's name? In this case, the father's name might have been De Soto and the mother's name Longo. I believe that this is a reletively modern practice and it is not common to combine the names into one word. .. perhaps the practice has changed or evolved over time? I also understand it is sometimes common for a married woman to take her husbands last name with the word de, hence her husbands name would have been Sotolongo and her name was De Sotolongo because she was married to him. In this case you should be researching the name Sotolongo. I have never seen this name either. Maybe it is a corruption?
