I'm new. My ancestors lived in Freeport, Florida. Censuses state that both John B. Croft and his son John B. (Jr) were Engineers. John B. Jr. was definitely a pilot for The Captain Fritz
, classified as a coastal schooner. The Fritz
sailed from Freeport to DeFuniak Springs, Panama City, Pensacola and New Orleans. A picture is posted at http://www.flgenhistonline.com/counties/walton/walphotos_page0006.htm
Where can I go to find out more about the men who worked on her and another possible ancestor, Captain Jack Croft?
