When the boll weevil threatened most the Mississippi Delta, it put the state’s cotton crop in peril. By the time the boll weevil reached Mississippi it had already destroyed four million bales of cotton. This added up to $238 million at the time or about 6 billion in present day. The boll weevil depends on cotton for every stage of its life.

Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from some lost place called Childerhouse, from Old English cildra, genitive plural of cild ‘child’ + hūs ‘house’. This may have referred to some form of orphanage perhaps run by a religious order, or perhaps the first element is to be understood in its later sense as a term of status (see Child ).
