LONG, George Johnsey - Johnsey Long, who has been very poorly at the home of his brother, J W Long, for several weeks, passed away Sunday night, August 3, 1924 aged eighty—four years and five days. George Johnsey Long was born July 29, 1840 in Knox County, Tenn., moving the same year with his parents to Camden County, Mo. He resided there until 1862 when he moved to Arkansas, residing many years in the Pea Ridge region. In 1861 he enlisted with a Missouri regiment of the Civil army and six months later became attached to the Blocker Battery Battalion of Arkansas and served throughout the war, rising to the rank of Sergeant Major. He had been captured and was in the Union military prison when the war closed, being paroled therefrom. Mr Long was never married. He was of that sturdy Daniel Boone type of manhood who knew what pioneering meant. He was a great hunter and he had a record of killing one hundred six wild deer in his day when such game was plentiful. He obeyed the Gospel in 1888, was studious of the Bible and a devoted Christian the rest of his days. The past thirty—four years he has made his home with his brother, J W Long, and wife. He also leaves several nephews and nieces. The funeral was conducted at the house Monday afternoon by Rev W McCarroll and burial was made in the 1.0.0.F. cemetery following the services.
