Hugo Ernestus Krebs descendants continue to study their ancestor

In 1974, a grandmother told her 12-year-old grandson that the cotton gin was not invented by Eli Whitney. He never forgot what she told him. She said her grandfather Krebs invented it and that all of this information could be found at the Pascagoula Public Library.
