Byrne cabin

Image: 

This photo of a Conway area log cabin with a link to the original Toad Suck Ferry was submitted to the paper and to the Conwaypedia photo archive by Jake Reeves. It was built by his ancestors, Thomas and Gertrude Byrne. Thomas Byrne was a native of Carlow, Ireland, while his wife was from Germany. According to Reeves, the ferry connection came from Gertrude’s brother, who ran the ferry and farmed in the area near the river. On Saturday nights he would come into town to attend church and pick up bread that Gertrude baked for him, then head back to the ferry.
