Biography of A. O. Longstreet
Springfield, Clark County, OH Biographies





A. O. LONGSTREET, deceased. Dr. A. O. Longstreet, the eminent physician and beloved citizen, although twelve months ago taken from among his family and friends to his eternal home, occupied so conspicuous a position in his profession, and was so highly respected in this community, that failure to make at least passing mention of his brief though enviable career here, would be little short of an injustice to his many late friends and admirers. Dr. Longstreet graduated as a homoeopathic physician in Philadelphia; came here from Monroe, Butler Co., in 1868. In 1869, married Miss Marian Parsons, who came to Springfield in childhood. The circumstances of the Doctor's death were remarkable and particularly sad. While attending a case of diphtheria, he in some way got a little of the diphtherial poison in one of his fingers, from which he died in three days. His death was a great shock to the community, whose love and confidence he enjoyed in so great a degree. The Doctor was 36 when he died, in the full prime of vigorous manhood. He was an exceedingly handsome and prepossessing man, over six feet high, well proportioned, and of commanding presence. Leaves a young and highly esteemed wife and four daughters, who occupy the old homestead.
