Jane and Derek,
This is very interesting. While conducting my research for many years I have never been able to find out what Native American tribe we all are evidently connected to. Most of my research is from older family members who say the connection is Cherokee and some say we are tied to Pochontas. Do you have any information on what tribe or tribes? Derek your research places Morse/Moss connection from a FPOC in Pittslyvania county, also during my research I came across a Drury and Alexander Moss who were FPOC in Nelson County in 1810. I also found a white man named Jack Moss in the 1880 census, dont know if he is connected in any way. There isnt any mention of any white Moss or Morses after that point in Nelson County. I grew up there and all Morses/Mosses were African Americans so where did we get the Moss surname?
