1979 Nederland to Livingston TX
Half way between Livingston and Woodville (Big Sandy School District), across 190 from the Alabama/Coushatta Indian Reservation. Almost all our neighbors were Indians. Last house on a dead end road, across the street from a spring fed lake with a 500 acre champion forest behind us. We sat on the porch and watched deer and other wild critters come through our yard and go to the lake to drink. We were so far out that we could not get a telephone. We were there a couple of years and still waiting when we moved. Hated to leave but the job was in Houston.
