Wearing his paper sack morning hat, William McKinley Crews, 81, built a fire in the wood stove and made breakfast at the farmhouse where he has lived all his life. The house in Moccasin Swamp in northern Florida, has no electricity or running water. His brother died leaving him to find company with his 14 cats and four cows he calls his "nuns." He is one of the last of the "old swampers" a reference to early settlers who lived in rural wetlands.
