60.  DR. JOHN WESLEY12 LONG III (NANCY MARGARET11 TROY, JOHN BALFOUR10, ISABELLA "TIBBIE"9 BALFOUR, ANDREW8, ANDREW7, JOHN ANDREW6, GEORGE JOHN5, HERSCHEL ANDREW4, BALFOUR3, ANDREW OF STRATHER AND MUQHANNY2, POSS SIR MICHAEL1) was born January 10, 1859 in Long's Mill, Randolph County, NC, and died August 01, 1926 in Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina.  He married (2) MARY ELIZABETH WOOLLEN 1884, daughter of WILLIAM WOOLLEN and MARY WALKER.  She was born 1864, and died 1958.

 

Notes for DR. JOHN WESLEY LONG III:

        John Wesley Long, a Founder of the Southern Surgical Association, was born at Long's Mills in Randolph County, North Carolina, on January 10, 1859.  He died in Greensboro, North Carolina, on August 1, 1926.

          Dr. Long's father, Dr. John Wesley Long II, a country medical practitioner, passed away while his son was yet a small boy.   But he lived long enough to instill into his young son a love for medicine, and it was not long before young John had made the decision to follow in his father's footsteps.  He went around with his pockets filled with strings and clean rags, ready to administer to the wounds of any man or animal in need of such service.  He was true to his father's example, for in later years as a young rural doctor we hear him in a public health address:  "I thank God that I sprang from the loins of a man who gave his life to the relief of the suffering of mankind, who in humility trod the quiet paths of the country doctor of medicine, attaining neither worldly rank nor fortune, and yet by his life instilled into my heart a desire to succor those in sickness and suffering that I would not exchange for wealth or royal crown.  In the spirit of my father, I hope to live with this as the great and one absorbing ambition of my life."

          At the tender age of thirteen years, John Wesley Long, III, left his home to seek his living elsewhere, moving in with his uncle William Long, and engaging in manual labor and attending school alternately.  Having "read medicine" under a preceptor, Dr. John F. Miller of Goldsboro, NC, he borrowed enough money to attend a medical school.  He was graduated from the medical department of Vanderbilt University in 1883, and also received a diploma in medicine from the University of Nashville in 1884.

          He began the practice of medicine at Aurora, North Carolina, where he remained only a short time before going to Randleman, in his home county. He met and married Mary Elizabeth Woollen.  Nine or ten years later, he moved to Richmond and was connected with the Medical College of Virginia, where he introduced operative gynecology, and held the chair of diseases of women and children.  He also became a Fellow of the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Unfortunately, in 1894, he sustained one of the worst blows in his life, when one of his daughters, nine-year-old Mary, died of diphtheric laryngitis.  Her body was first removed to the old homeplace at Randleman.  Sixteen years later, the body was taken up and removed by Dr. Long into another casket and interred again in Green Hill Cemetery, where it now rests.

          Following the death of his daughter Mary, Dr. Long began the establishment of the Mary Long Hospital in Belgian Congo,  "a hospital dedicated to relieve the pain and sufferings of the people of that country....  Its service has grown until it has become more than an institution in the lives of the African people....revealed in a communication received from Mrs. Isabel DeRuiter, a missionary to Africa, at the Methodist Episcopal Congo Mission, Wembo, Nyama, Lusambo, Congo Beige:  'As I stand in the street back of our home and look toward the south, I see the center door of the recently built ward of the Mary Long Hospital.  The door is wide open, a symbol of welcome to the sick, suffering humanity in this part of Africa.  You well remember David Livingstone's description of Africa - "The open sore of the world." Terrible diseases, some of them too loathsome to describe, have cursed this beautiful land and brought thousands to their graves.  But wonderful things have taken place inside these hospital walls.  Many operations have been performed and the patients have been lovingly nursed back to health and strength.  Best of all, we frequently hear of those who have been converted while in our hospital and when they are dismissed, return to their heathen villages to tell their friends and neighbors of Jesus. One woman returned to her village, began to preach to her people, and soon started the walls of a church.  She collected tithes from her non-Christian friends and returned in a few months to the mission, begging for an evangelist.  Across the street from the hospital are the school buildings, the kindergarten, the day school and the normal school....'"

          After spending four years in Richmond, Dr. Long came back to North Carolina and was associated with Dr. D. A. Stanton in High Point for a short while.  From High Point he went to Salisbury and assisted Dr. John Whitehead in establishing a hospital known as the Whitehead-Long Sanatorium.  Here he remained four years, moving in 1903 to Greensboro, where he spent the remainder of his life.  Shortly after settling in Greensboro, he was instrumental in opening up the first hospital established in that town.  It was known as the Green Street Hospital. When St. Leo's Hospital was organized, in 1906, he used every effort to make it a success, and for eleven years was the leading surgeon in that institution.  In 1907, he opened the Wesley Long Hospital, a private institution with thirty beds.  At the time of his death, an annex of beautiful design, and perhaps one of the best equipped in the state, was practically completed.

          Dr. Long developed a nursing school curriculum that consisted of a three-year course in practical and theoretical work, leading to a nursing diploma and making graduates eligible to take the state board examination.  Long preferred training his nurses, and he was just as demanding of them as he was of the rest of his staff.  A devout Methodist, he made his nurses attend church on Sundays.  He ran his hospital with an iron hand.  He limited who could practice there, he kept precise records - he left 113 lengthy volumes of medical records, and he instituted a peer review that kept doctors on their toes.  He chose who would serve on the Board of Trustees, and he wrote the by-laws and monitored every aspect of care.  His chosen motto was:  "Frimum non noere" - "First of all, do no harm."

          He was an innovator and constantly sought ways to improve surgical instruments and procedures.  He demanded absolute cleanliness during surgery and examinations long before this became an accepted practice.  He was one of the first physicians in the state to use the X-ray.  He invented a stitching technique.  He devised uretero-cystotomy, a technique that many surgeons adopted.  He was the first physician in Virginia to use a cystoscope.  He became an expert in tracheotomy and intubation - a technique that might have saved his daughter's life years earlier, and he wrote extensively on appendicitis.

          Though beyond the age of active military duty, Dr. Long plunged enthusiastically into service upon our entrance into World War I.  He volunteered before war with Germany was declared, and he served in the medical corps for nearly three years.  Entirely by his own efforts, he organized Base Hospital 65, which mobilized at Fort McPherson and went to France and was stationed at Kerhuon, near Brest.  During its service at that station, it cared for over 40,000 sick and wounded soldiers.  He also served as medical aide to the governor, an appointment from the provost marshal general's office, and involving organization and supervision of medical advisory boards throughout the entire state.  Dr. Long was sent abroad as chief of the surgical service with Base Hospital 65, and later the dutues of surgeon to the Kerhoun Center were added. While with the A.E.F., he was sent on detached service to a number of other hospitals, and when the Armistice was signed, he was with Evacuation Hospital #1 in the Toule sector.  On being returned to the states, he was sent to Camp Gordon to take charge of the reconstruction surgery of that unit.   By virtue of his rank, he was made the commanding officer.  At his death he was consulting surgeon to the army, with the rank of colonel.  The local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars named itself in honor of him.

          In addition to his local medical organizations, Dr. Long held membership in the Tri-State Medical Association of the Carolinas and Virginia, in the North Carolina Hospital Association, and at one time in the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.  He was president of the Medical Society of the State of North Carolina in 1923, when he recommended the establishment of the Women's Auxiliary to the Medical Society, and he appointed a committee to consider the establishment of a four-year medical school for North Carolina.  His contributions to the Society and medical practice were so valuable that they were recently honored at an anniversary celebration.  He was one of the three North Carolina charter-fellows of the American College of Surgeons and exhibited a very active interest in its work.  In 1924, he received the Master of Surgery degree from the University of Manitoba; he was the first successful applicant from outside the university.

          The distinction that Dr. Long valued as the greatest of his career was that of being one of the Founders of the Southern Surgical Association.  He was present at the initial session in Birmingham in December 1888, and he read a paper entitled "Practical Aseptic Surgery." Thereafter he was a frequent contributor to and constant attendant upon the meetings.  He was vice-president in 1902, president in 1914, and served his term on the council.  His papers read before the association were characterized by careful preparation and were presented in a clear and forceful manner.  At all times, he was loyal to the spirit of the organization and zealous in upholding its ideals.

          In the death of Dr. Long, North Carolina lost its foremost surgeon.  He was truly a pioneer.  Back in the 1880's, he was performing operations, and with marked success, in the remote country districts of Randolph County.  John Wesley Long was a man of high principles and sincere piety.  Quixotic by nature, he had been brought up after the straightest sect and could not condone evil.  He was of a generous disposition, however, and was always ready to lend the hand of charity to those he thought were truly repentant.

          As a surgeon, Dr. Long's ability ranked high.  His judgment was sound; he was resourceful; his operative technique exhibited manual skill and meticulous care.  For some months he had known that he was a victim of angina pectoris.  Four days before his death, he was seized by an overwhelming attack which give him little surcease until the end.  His last moments were given over to concern for others, and though his final words indicated that he wished to live to see his work finished, yet he resignedly uttered, "It is all right if I do not."  Dr. Long lived at his last home at 115 Church Street, Gilmer township, Greensboro, NC, for 25 years before his death in 1926  (death certificate, page 159, Robert Phillips' book).

          To his grandchildren, he was known fondly as "Papa Doc," or "Dockie."  They thought the world of him, and they were heartbroken when he died.  He had always seemed larger than life, and it seemed incomprehensible that he could die.

Notes for LAURA JANE BEARD:

"Old Timers say that Laura was a beautiful girl, always dressed in the latest fashion and was well liked by everyone, was a real "Belle of the County"; and everyone was shocked when she married an "old man with six kids" but the marriage was a very happy one and resulted in six more children for Wm. H. and Laura. Laura died in the Shreveport Hospital, residence at the time was Ruston,  Lincoln Parish, LA. The "informant" on her death certificate was son Tracy Bailey, who gave her age as 70, which would make the year of her birth 1857. She was buried beside Wm. H. Bailey in the Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Claiborne Parish, LA.

The D.A.R. Tombstone Inscriptions for Louisiana, Vol. 8, Claiborne & Union Parishes, LA, listed Laura as Laura J. Beaird Bailey and gave the date of birth as 10 Feb. 1865, which is wrong.  She was born in September 1857, according to the 1900 census.  In 1870 she was still living at home and listed as age 12.  This mistake in the LA Tombstone Inscriptions has caused considerable problems since they are so widely used and considered authentic."

Burial: Mt. Mariah Church, Claiborne Parish, Louisiana
