|Dr. Crawford W. Long|
Returning to Georgia, he set up practice in Jefferson, Jackson County. That is where he first began experimenting with sulfuric ether and used it for the first time on March 30, 1842 when he removed a tumor from the neck of a boy. He died on June 16, 1878, of heart failure at the bedside of a mother who had just given birth.
