Barry Gooch, who is Field Coordinator for the Cooperative Research Program run by DNR, took this picture in Williamsburg County.

Barry says: “I have ridden the back roads of this state my entire life. I’m used to seeing old tires, discarded refrigerators, and even a rusted out ’53 Studebaker that spoils the view of almost every backwater swamp crossed by a causeway. But I admit to hitting the brakes when I saw this old clapboard farmhouse sitting in a duckweed-covered swamp in Williamsburg County. It’s just like someone had casually tossed it from the back of a pickup truck.”

My Morris family lived in that area beginning about 1800 or earlier.

This shows, to me, the cycle of life. In earlier times this house was born from the hands of a man and probably his family. During its life much was shared and oh, the stories it could tell. Life was hard but good. After some years one by one it’s inhabitants left and the house was left alone. Times got rough for the old place. Without love and purpose there was nothing to do except watch everything go by. Becoming a part of someone’s history. Like all things man made it dies. Leaving only skeletal remains. Soon they’ll be gone also. Such is the cycle.
