Abshiers in Louisianna and Texas

Can anyone tell me if they have any knowledge of the following line being related to Redbone families in Louisiana?

I have seen postings on various Redbone sites identifying these families as such but no source documentation.

From Redbone Blog:
By the way, any of you who are related to Benjamin Hargrave, Jr. (b. abt 1741 d. 26 Mar 1827) and Rebecca Elizabeth Gwaltney Hargrave (b.abt. 1745 - d. abt 1830) would be related to Isaac Ryan and the wife of Thomas Rigmaiden, Eliza Ryan Rigmaiden (b. abt. 1806 -- d. 31 Aug 1871).

-It's been said that the Drakes, Goins and Hargrave's, to name a few families, were Redbones.

As my mother never knew her father's family, I have no idea if these families had a history of tri-racial ethnicity or not. Happy to find out either way. Any information is appreciated. Her line is:

1 Benjamin Hargrave 1741 + Rebecca Gwaltney

Louisiana by ~1780
2 Francoise "Fanny" Hargrave + John "Jean" Abshire
3 Benjamin Abshier + Hannah Weed
4 James Calvin Moor + Lavinia Abshier

Liberty Texas between 1852-1854
5 Euphemia Moor + David Calhoun Palmer
6 Angus Douglas Palmer + Lola Viola Abshier
7 Arthur Claud Palmer + Josephine Greber
8 Joseph Harold Pamer + Mary Louise Young
