The big cedar items came from the front yard of the old homestead, the acerage of which butts up against Chicot State Park.
At least some of the big cypress came from Chicot Park, when flooding washed sinker logs and other pieces over the spillway. All that "debris" was trapped along the tree-lined road, blocking the roadway. I asked the park officials if I could collect the logs, and such, and they said yes, but I couldn't bring in heavy equipment. I drug, with the pickup, some logs to the back field, not far away. It was lots of work, but I was younger. It was fun and I ended up with quite a bit of subsequent lumber and other assorted pieces.
