In Response To: "Free White Mulattoes" in 1860 ()
Extremely interesting - I don't know enough about the geography of the area to guess if any of the folks listed are from the category now referred to as tri-racial isolates - but it certainly illustrates yet another piece of the confusion created by the "one drop rule" of hypodescent.
Thanks for sharing it.
