Re: anyone here a child of two mulattos
- What do you mean by �two mulattoes�?
Are you referring to mulattoes on both, your
mother's and father's, sides of the families?
If you look at the U.S. Census from 1850 on you
will see that the classification of 'Mulatto' is very
common on most Census from the southern states.
On my mother's side, everyone -- from Bett Hemings
to my grandmother, Annabelle (Minor) Armstrong --
was listed as 'Mulatto' at one time or another.
My maternal grandfather is listed as 'Negro' (or
Black') while his grandmother is listed as 'Mulatto'.
The main thing that I'm trying to convey is that ...
If you are categorized as a "black" color or 'African-American' color
(that is, using the United States Census Bureau's
mis-categorization and mis-momer applied to this
very unique and largely Multi-Racial 'Ethnic' group),
you will likely find the classification, of 'Mulatto',
buried from root to leaf all throughout your tree.
