Who was really Tom Dooley ?

In his book, a young american doctor called Tom Dooley, who worked during the early 60' in Asia as a "French Doctor" (he was a precursor), say that the KT' song has been dedicated to him. He was suffering from a cancer and Dooley, in the song, is also "going to dye"...

Has everyone informations about the origin of the KT' text "Tom Dooley" ?

Thank you in advance
