I found the same type of marriages while researching my husband's NC family. Not only intermarriage between his AA ancestors, but also between the white descendants of their former enslavers (Adams, Scales, Joyce branches). And because of earlier "encounters" between enslavers and slaves, that makes many of the AA's and white descendants related by blood. Whether they wish to acknowledge it or not.
