Clarence Simmons lives the traditional Gullah Geechee lifestyle raising pigs, goats, chickens and a cow that he claims is 34 years old. Some people on the island say that Clarence was born with a caul, an inner fetal membrane that covers the head at birth. It is a Gullah Geechee belief that children with cauls have been touched by uncommonness and magic, and therefore, they can see spirits and things that others cannot.
