Remarks: The water is generally limestone. The soil is light & sandy and in many places 
filled or littered with limerock. Long leaf yellow pine is the general growth 
only with in hammocks where the white oak & hickory and the magnolia bay are very 
plentiful and swamps abound in the spontaneous growth of cabbage palmeto. Lime & murl 
are the natural fertilizers in the county.
