Oktibbeha Mississippi Douglass
I could use help with this ancestor. she first shows up 1870 census as domestic servant with the last name of Douglass first name Malessia. Is there anywhere I could go to try and find more information on her? She was Mulatto but the mix is unclear with the family lore as to white/black or native american/black. The family's last name was Douglass so it seems unclear if that was her real last name or given last name.
