The Syphax family is a very prominent african-american family. They are from Virginia, and if I'm not mistaken have ties to land that is now part of the Arlington National Cemetary. The family is well known in Washington D.C African-American society. Howard University's Moorland-Springarn Research Library will probably have info. on them. Also there is info. on them in Lawrence Graham's Our Kind of People.
