Swamp Buddies Seth Matthews and Ed Morris – Gulfport Business Men of the Past

Posted on Updated on


One day I was doing research in the newspaper files and found this priceless nugget of gold. A dear friend and I had grown up together and were childhood buddies in Gulfport, Mississippi. We never knew our ancestors had known each other. Cathey’s great grandfather Seth Matthews and my great grandfather, D. Edmund Morris went hunting in the Pascagoula swamps in 1913. The serendipity of genealogy research often brings surprises like this to keep us hooked on hunting ancestors. What a sweet find!
