The main occupation of almost all residents of the barangay was farming. Various livelihood activities were also undertaken by the residents of the barangay such as: Patadyong weaving, Weaving of buri hats and baskets, Fish vendors with stall at nearby markets,and Ambulant fish vendor in the barangay.

During those times. notices to residents were communicated through “harubay” (bandillo in spanish during the Spanish period of Philippine History). They used kerosene cans or a piece of bambo trunk as drum.

The barangay hall was constructed in 1950. The hamorawon retablos of the altar in the barangay chapel were built in the 1930s. The barangay hermita then consisted only of galvanized iron sheets as walls, and corrugated iron sheets for roofing.

The barangay creek and many water holes in paddy ricefields were abundant with fresh water fishes, so much that residents used to catch these fishes there with tambong, silid, taan and banwit.

During the Japanese occupation (1942 to 1945), all residents of sitio Gogon and Dugcal were ordered by the Japanese to relocate their houses along the San Mateo Creek because they suspected that a guerilla was operating in the area of Dugcal.

ORIGIN OF THE NAME

The name of sitio Gogon came from the name of the wild grass “gogon” because in those days the place was “kagugunan“. Barangay Dugcal’s name came from the bikol word “sungkal” (to dig the soil with a pig’s snout), which the residents used to call their place because pigs were seen to furrow the soil with their snouts since houses during days had no fences and pigs were free to roam the place.
