This story is very interesting. When I first saw this on facebook. I thought the article was about Catahoula, La. Which is near me. I live by Opelousas, La. Is there any kind of connection for the name in this area? I don't know of any clear water there. It is near the Atchafalaya River levee.
Glad you enjoyed the story. I didn't realize until recently that there was a community named Catahoula. If I run across a connection I'll let you know. Thanks for commenting!
