That was exactly what happened to Ruthie Lee Anderson when she was about 4 years old. Her family lived in Cohay Camp in Smith County, Mississippi.  A logging camp had been set up in the Cohay Swamp by early settlers in the Mississippi Territory.  Logging proved to be a booming business in that area as many settlers arrived and needed the logs to build cabins for their growing families. Ruthie Lee’s father worked at that camp.  The story is now written into manuscript form.  It has been professionally critqued and edited several times.  The story is searching for a publisher as I write this blog.

    I would love to know more of this story. My family owns much of the land (and swamp) where Cohay camp was located.
