History of George Clayton Long Written by himself

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

I, George Clayton Long, was born in Bradleyton Crenshaw Alabama. My parents were poor but honest and hard working and taught their children to work for which I am thankful. My parents were both born in Alabama grew up there joined the church in 1901 and were faithful members. They always took care of the missionaries that came to stay at their home. I grew up an went to school in Alabama. My schooling was very limited because we had to help plant the crops early in the spring and harvest them in the Fall. We had to stay out of school a lot of the time, but I learned to work and manage which surely has been a blessing through my life. We belonged to a small branch but each member tried to do his share. I helped build the small one room chapel where we held out meeting. [My first project]. Many times we children slept on the floor and let the missionaries sleep in our beds. My mother would save the white flour or make bread for them and we would eat corn bread so we learned very early in life to share what we had with others. I came to Utah in 1917 with my family and we settled in Fairview Sanpete County. I first worked on the railroad and them went to work in the coal mines in and around Carbon County. I worked there till 1928 when I and the family came to Orem. I bought a farm on which is now 2nd East and 5th North. It was five acres of fruit. I farmed in the Summer and went back to the mines in the Winter. I have always tried to do what I could in church. I have worked as counselor and as superintendent of the Sunday School, President of the Young Men's M.I.A., one of seven Presidents of the Stake Seventy, worked as chairman of finance in Windsor and Orem 8th wards, the old folks committee and as an Elder I worked to raise money for missionaries and ward two project chairman of Genealogy committee, also worked with the scouting program. I fulfilled a tow year stake mission with my wife and have been a ward teacher and am now a home teacher which I do enjoy. I and my wife have done some temple work which is a great blessing to me. I am still working at Geneva Steel and am thankful that I can still work to support my family and help finance the ward projects and the church. I am looking forward to retiring in the near future. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of this great church and am thankful that I am a member of such a wonderful organization.

Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees.
