Yes it is very possible that folks can be listed as white on the census and not be- happens all the time. I too find it odd that they were buried in and African-American cemetery - especially in TN.
Many people "passed". Not all descendants are happy to find that out - grin - so don't worry about offending anyone here - we'll be happy to help you discover what can be found.
Post all the information that you have and I'll see what I can find.
