    An elder recalls Old Place

    Cleola Sawyer has lived all of her 82 years on Mainland Abaco. Seventy one of those years she has spent in Dundas Town but the first eleven she spent in Old Place and South Side. This was a small settlement located north west of Marsh Harbour on the south west coast between Fire Road and Blackwood along with the settlements of Blackwood and Grape Tree. Born in 1931, Mrs. Sawyer was the last of three boys and three girls born to Nathaniel and Delrone Smith.
