In Response To: Re: Free Negro vs. Mullato ()

I was JUST going to add that! In Virginia (and this could possibly a Virginia thang) Indians could be hung for claiming they were Indian, so most claimed to be Black or mulattoes on the census. Found this out while researching my family and found a relative noted as 'mulatto'.
