Historicial Development: Henry Morris and Albert Morehouse had a sawmill and planing mill in Panola County in 1919. They mortgaged their facility for $2,000 with Tom Furrh. The latter was probably T. W. Furrh, who had a sawmill at Elysian Fields in Harrison County. The Morris & Morehouse plant was probably located in the northeastern part of Panola County.
