Story River and the Island behind Fripp.

Hello

My anscestor was a neigbor of the Fripps on a small 400 acre island behind fripp Island on the other side of the old house creek. Is anyone familar with the history of the island?

My anscestors Zachariah Storey / Story and other Story family members owned it from the early 1700s untill well into the 1800s. The last person I can find with ownership is Ellicot Story. Can anyone give more history of the area. It is a wild life preserve called the Old House Heritage Perserve today. It would be really neat if someone knew of old ruins or something on the island. This is the island directly off the back of the Fripp Island Marina.
