Old Scooba House

Submitted by Nancy Bell

This is an old house I'm trying to identify. The picture was taken in the 1980's. The house was located about 2 or 3 miles east of Scooba, near the old abandoned Carter cemetery, on the north side of the road, west of the Dozer Rd. intersection. It was near the Old Scooba cemetery, on the opposite side of the road. Some of the families that lived in the vicinity during the 1850's and 1860's were Clark Carter, Hugh Dale, D.C. Greenwood, and Robert Johnson, along with the names listed in the abandoned cemetery. The house has been torn down. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
