In Response To: Smith Sisters of Ocean Springs, MS ()
I saw your post online looking for relatives of Johanna Smith Blount of Ocean Springs. I am not related but also have been doing research on my only family. I live in Ocean Springs, MS and am happy to help if I can if you need local assistance looking through records. I have been to Johanna's property in Ocean Springs. The family has a really awesome story. I took some photos there while I was there last week and am happy to share. I am hoping to get the city to recognize her history more at the site. I think she has a great story of the strength of African American women and their roles after the Civil War.
