Lazine surname

Hi Everyone,

I recently discovered some information about my paternal great great grandfaher.His name was Henry Lazine. He was born in Maryland in the early to mid 1840's. What seems to be the problem is I can't find his information any where in Maryland. I know that in the early 1870's he was in Texas. That information is the only information that I have on him. Ihave located information on him in Texas census records 1880 and 1870.
The second problem is the Lazine surname. It is very unique and different. I have not found any message boards with this particular last name. In the documents in Texas, Lazine was also spelled Laizeam,Lazein,Lazino, and may other mispellings. Some other surnames that sound sort of familiar to Lazine are Lezan,Lessane, Lesine,Lasane,and there are many more.
Finally,I was also wondering was Henry Lazine(?) a free person of color in Maryland. I read that Maryland had one of the biggest free people of color population in the US.

Is there any one who can help me or give me some good advice?

Thank You Sincerely,
A Johnson
