Re: Langston Chevez or Cheves

Yes..The book I was reading had his name as Chevez, but the city directory that was published long before the book had him as Cheves..
Many from the Free Black family were mixed, and many were light skinned just as today, even though there is African ancestry..I figured by 1800 and before, there easily could be those Chavis family members who could pass for white and did..
I don't THINK a known African ancestored person would have been *allowed* to be an attorney at the time..But there may have been exceptions..
In the book I was reading, it was mentioned that the grandchild of Langston Cheves and the grandchild of one of the Ellisons of Fairfield married, but the book did not name those grandchildren.. I was hoping to eventually find who they were..
