Bidge worked the farm with “Field Hands” Black and White people who would work during the seasons, some would live on the farm in shacks of rough sawn boards, tar paper made to look like brick, tin roofs, privy out back. With the exception of a few, most were “poor as snakes” without running water, indoor plumbing, electrical power until the REA got going in West Georgia. Uncle Grade would hunt all year round and what ever he and his dogs brought He would sell the excess to the tenets for cash to spend on drink. Few had running water even in the 60s. Uncle Grade never had running water in his house. Field Hands were the closest thing to slaves one could get and still claim freedom to take off or not work. The Brothers would work the land as there was never enough help or cleared land. One time during a clearing of a creek bottom overgrown with brush the brothers discovered a circle of stones within a circle of stones inside of the big circle with a slight mound. Returning for help and more shovels the boys discovered Uncle Bidge with some “field hands” had scattered all the stones in the creek and forbid them to waste time on digging for “Chief Wm. McIntosh Indian Gold” He also never told anyone where the fence post gold was even after the barn burned and the house later collapsed and burned. Bidge told Lester, later in the 1960s the barn moved after it burned and he had forgotten which post.
