Lockhart Gaddy of Anson County recently passed away. The man, who lived on Honkers Lake, introduced a number of geese to the area for decoy hunting.
Mrs. Hazel Ross Gaddy is seventy-three years old, and for almost half of her life, she has been looking after geese and ducks on her Ansonville farm. The farm is better known as Lockhart Gaddy's Wild Goose Refuge, which started in 1934. The refuge is small, being only 300 acres of farmland with a ten-acre pond. Each year some 12,000 to 15,000 Canada geese and wild ducks winter here. It is probably the only place in the country where visitors can observe Canada geese at really close range. The Anson County goose refuge rates a spot on each year's state highway map.
