Goley and Mary lived here for years. I remember many times as a child, arriving late at night. Before the bridge was put in,
someone from the family would come across in a canoe, and take us across, usually one or two, to the other side. I remember,
too, they would either have to use oil lanterns or flashlights to light the way.
