      According to their grand daughter, Lydia Gorzell Hubbell, Sam was known as the "Watermelon King." He grew the biggest and best watermelons. Cotton was a much more profitable crop; however, Sam grew watermelons because he enjoyed going to market and socializing with his customers and the other vendors.
      Lydia remembers Sam as being very tall with the clearest blue eyes she has ever seen. Her grandmother, Amelia, was a small person who had green eyes with flecks of brown in them. Photo courtesy: Vicki Black, Atlanta, Georgia.
