Paul Anderson Long

M, b. 5 September 1904, d. 7 January 1925
     Paul Anderson Long was born on 5 September 1904; son of Jacob Franklin and Idella "Della" May (Loy) Long. He married Thelma Irene Weaver, daughter of John Franklin Weaver and Callie Etta Cost, on 21 November 1923 at Covington, Kenton Co., KY; license reported in the Wednesday, 22 NOV 1923 edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer, page 15, stating the licenses were issued in Covington the previous day. (Newspapers.com). Interestingly, their residences were given as "both of New Carlisle, Ind.".

Paul and Thelma first sought a marriage license about 17 or 19 NOV 1923 (the 18th was a Sunday), in Greene County, Ohio, as documented in the Ohio, U.S., County Marriage Records, 1774-1993 (database online, Ancestry.com), range 1922-1931, image 112. The application information was completed for Paul, who claimed to be 22 years old, and for Thelma, who claimed to be 21, only to the point where her birth date and parental names were to be entered. At that point, the person taking the information wrote in large script "Refused", and that is all the information that appears in the marriage book.

Paul Anderson Long died on 7 January 1925 at age 20

TWO KILLED WHEN PLANE HITS AUTO TRUCK AT WRIGHT FIELD

FLYERS UNINJURED AS SHIP SEVERS HEADS OF VICTIMS

Lieut. E.H. Barksdale Pilot of Plane, Involved in Uniusual Fatality -- Paul Long and Leon Harness Meet Death.
______________________________

ACCIDENT OCCURS DURING LOW FLIGHT ON SPEED COURSE.

De Haviland Removes Top of Vehicle, Plunges to Earth and Rebounds -- Escape of Airmen is Regarded as Mystery.
______________________________

Two Wilbur Wright field employes were killed Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock when a covered government truck in which they were riding was struck by an airplance flying low over the speed course at the field.

The airplane was piloted by Lieut. E. H. Barksdale, who was accompanied by Eugene Althoff, civilian observer. Both escaped without injury. The dead are:
Leon C. Harness, 32, Wright field inspector;
Paul A. Long, 20; Wright field quartermaster department employe.

Harness lived in Osborn and Long in Fairfield. Both were married.

The fatality Wednesday is believed to be the first instance on record of a collision between an airplane and a motor truck.

The automobile was going west on the government road and was struck at an angle from the rear by the airplane.

The landing gear of the plane tore off the top of the truck. In crashing through, the bottom piece of the landing gear or the propeller struck the two men, decapitating them.

Their bodies, according to witnesses, remained in the truck, which ran wild but stopped after it had covered about 500 feet.

The plane without its landing gear was hurled into the earth. It landed about 50 feet from where the collision took place, bounced, and settled about 500 feet from the point of collision. Both airmen kept their seats in the plane, and climbed from the wreckage unhurt.

The accident is termed by McCook field flyers as unusual.

Although the plane and the motor truck were demolished, both occupants of the ship escaped unhurt.

An ordinary DeHaviland plane was being used.

It was being flown somewhat lower than 10 feet from the earth to obtain the ground speed of the ship.

Under ordinary conditions, the ground speed of a DeHaviland plane is 120 miles an hour. It is believed that Lieut. Barksdale was going at least that fast.

The landing gear of the airplane cut off the top of the motor truck and after the accident what remained of the truck was in an upright position.

One of Harness’ feet was hanging from the side of the auto truck, indicating that he saw the danger and attempted to leave the truck.

The two flyers were absolved from all blame for the accident.

It is generally known that there exists at Wilbur Wright field a speed course. The course taken by the plane when information as to the ground speed of a ship is desired, is marked with signs and warnings along the roadway.

The government road divides the course and planes traversing the measured distance, must cross it.

Harness was married and has one child, Betty Jane, three-year old. He was assistant chief inspector at Wright field. He came to the post in March, 1919, and has been employed there continuously since that time.

Besides his wife Bertha, he leaves his mother, two sisters and one brother.

Long has been employed at Wright field since May 1, 1924. He was married and had one child, aged six months. He lives at Medway.

Lieut. Barksdale is considered one of the ablest test pilots at McCook field.

Last year, while flying a new DeHaviland plane at Wright field, the tail surfaces of the ship gave away, catapulting Lieut. Barksdale to earth. He saved his life by use of his parachute. His observer, Ralph Anderson, was killed.

The motor truck, being covered, it is believed Long and Harness did not see the approach of the speeding plane and it is declared probable that the noise of their own motor drowned out the noise of the motor in the airplane.

Since the purpose of the trip was to obtain figures on the speed of the plane in which new equipment was being used, it was also declared probable the eyes of the flyers were bent on their instruments and did not see the truck going over the road.

The speed course runs near the middle of Wright field and ships are tested over it almost daily.

Signs warn motorists to watch for low-flying airplanes.

To strike the top of the automobile, the plane must have been traveling approximately seven feet high.

Without warning, the swift-moving plane crashed into the truck hurling it from the roadway. The motor is said to have struck near the seat occupied by the two men, but it is not known definitely whether they were crushed by the motor or wreckage from the truck.

After the crash, the plane whirled around and dived nose first, into the earth.

A second unusual part of the crash is that the terrific impact of the plane hitting the earth, did not cause an explosion and subsequent fire.

Jacob F. Long, father of one of the victims, is a civilian guard employed at Wilbur Wright field. He was among the first to learn of the crash and hurried to the scene of the accident. But on account of the mangled condition of the body of his son, authorities prevented him from viewing it.

He was buried in January 1925 at New Carlisle Cemetery, New Carlisle, Clark Co., OH, Findagrave #17164265.

Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

Funeral services will be held Thursday at 2:00 p.m. at the Mayo Memorial Methodist Church for Mrs. Ruth Long Wells, local attorney who passed away Tuesday morning on Fourth St. She had been ill for the past eight years and her death was not unexpected.

She attended Sandy Valley seminary in this city (Paintsville, KY) and Hazel Green Academy at Hazel Green, KY. She was later married to Kendrick Wells who preceded her in death in 1926.

Prior to her husband's death she was associated with him in his law offices and afterward took up the study of law and was admitted to the bar in 1928, the first woman admitted to the Johnson County, KY bar. Until her health failed, she was actively engaged in the practice of her profession and at one time served the city of Paintsville as city attorney. She was a member of the law firm of Wells and Wells of this city.

"Ruth" as she was familiarly know to her acquaintances, was deeply devoted to her family and friends. A woman of gracious charm and dignity, her heart-warming personality made her beloved by all who knew her. Her life was a symbol of courage and high fidelity to purpose, and her character attested the noble qualities of an inner spirit which attained its goal by a quiet strength and unfaltering determination.

She was a member of the Mayo Memorial Methodist Church, the Johnson County Bar Association, and the State Bar Association.

Surviving are a son, Attorney John Kendrick Wells, and two daughters, Mrs. Miriam Leonard, Mrs. Virginia Lee Gullett, and three grandchildren, Michael David Leonard, Diane Ruth Leonard and John K. Wells III, all of Paintsville. Also surviving is one sister, Mrs. John L. Wells, of this city.
