Dear Stephanie Banks, yes, most of the Foushee information posted is likely white and there
is some black Foushee data. I know most of the black Foushees from the background in
Chatham County, NC, and the name comes from the slave owners. There is one family
of both white and black heritage. Most of pronounce it Fou-shee but some try to say it
in the French as Fouche' Originally the name comes from Huguenot folks, the French
Protestants. Feel free to write me directly. Best wishes, Roger B. Foushee
