I was raised on Bateman island,along with the breaux's,Landry and Lacoste families. George Williams owned the island and my father was care taker of the island. He farmed the front 50 acres of the island and hunted and fished for a living. When mr. Williams died the children leased the island to oil co. And is now polluted. I don't believe mr. Williams would approve . George Williams raised his family on the island also. It was a wonderful place to grow up, lots of wonderful memories!!!!!!!
