determining the age of a mast

Howdy folks I was hoping that a may get some advice....I was recently rumaging along the marshy banks of the I.C.W. in northern florida when I ran across what I believe is an old sailboat mast. Its about 23' long and made of cedar its about 6" in diameter at the top and is round except for about the last 6' which becomes square but appears to be broken off at the bottom and is about 16" across the square bottom and appears to be an old piece of wood. I use old pieces of driftwood to build furniture but wanted to find out a little more info on this interesting piece before I hacked it up.If it is a mast Is it possible to date this piece or find out what kind of boat its from? Any advice of knowledge you guys may have would be greatly appericiated
