275.Thank you do very much for the valued history and first hand account of life at Watooka.
I happened to read Children of Watooka, a very interesting book.
I wish I was living in those days at Wismar or Christianburg or what is now Linden
if I am correct.
Thanks for the educational and historical parts of your story.

[quoteWatooka]I am not surprised about the loss of life. That stretch of the river is highly dangerous. The water flows a lot faster in that area, partly due to the rocks sticking up from the bottom of the river to just below the surface of the water at full tide. I have seen many dead bodies recovered from the river, and that was just a fraction of the total number of lives lost in the river.[/quote]
