No black roots in the south at all in family tree.
From talk around the family I,m the only black person in America with no roots in the south. My father’s people are from Kansas and my mother’s people are from Canada. Here is the kicker from my mom’s family. Her grandmother came from the state of Washington in the mid 1850′s, how is this possible when black people were not freed until after the civil war. Please help I believe she was half black and half Native american would love to know how true this story is. If you decide to research this a hint would be that my mom had a famous uncle from Canada that was an olympian who ran track in the late 1920′s to the 1930′s and he and Jessie Owens were great freinds and competers. Please help yours truly Dell Jackson
