Some of my Thomas family from VA who settled in PA in the 1840s indicated on their draft registration cards that they were Syrian and Ethiopian. I am not sure they were telling the true, but after doing DNA testing, I think they might have been.
I have seen members of my and my husband's families go from white to mulatto to Negro.
