Foushee, NC, questions

Hello to Everyone! I have some questions about the Foushee family history. Roger, you responded to a query of mine on another web site several years ago. I was very glad to see you so prominant here as well. I have resumed my Foushee research and hope that you can answer some questions. My husband's mother was a Foushee. Ever since I met him, I have been facinated by this beautiful name. She used to pronounce it with a long e, Fou - shee, with the accent on the second sylable. My husband's cousin, who retained his mother's maiden name, pronounces it Fou-shea. I am assuming my mother-in-law was correct. What is the origin of the name? Also, my husband is African American. His mother was originally from the Greenville, NC area. Her name was Peggy and she had a sister named Delores. Both are now deceased.
I am assuming that all of the queries I have read on this site are of white families. Are you familiar with the African American Foushee's? To my knowledge, there are still many in the Greenville area. What is the connection? Marriage? Slavery? Thanks for your help- Stephanie
