Grandpa was born outside Charlotte N.C. in the 1880's. He left home for Appalachicola,Fl. at a very young age where he met and married my Granny Inez Green.

In his travels he had been to Tampa Bay at the turn of the century on a schooner delivering lumber and had chanced to meet a mullet fishing seine crew at Gulfport, Fl.

He became a fisherman and they made Gulfport their home. He also ran his party fishing boats there for many years and was the Mayor of Gulfport twice.

My Granny Williams was a great cook and every May when the Mulberry trees were full of ripe purple Mulberries, we would pick a bucket full and Granny would make us her Mulberry Cobbler. I still make it cause its so easy and delicious!
