Hello Heather:

I am not sure about John Wesley being white or african american. He would be a distant cousin in the familiy tree.

My line is white, however, on my Castellaw side my gggg grandfather's brother's children were considered african american. They are listed on the site www.freeafricanamericans.com under surname of Butler. They were in Bertie Co., NC. I noticed on the Courtney family I am researching, that some of the Courtney's fathered children with their slaves and this is starting to be researched, but I have not found out if we connect yet to the same lines yet. Looks like it would be the Courtney's out of MS, which mine did come from MS to Tx. But I believe the research, like I said, is just now getting under way or at least I am just now reading about it.

What lines are you researching? The lines I am researching at this time are Bacchus/Baccus, Brown, Castellaw, Couch, Chandler, Courtney, Dear/Deer/Deere, Ellis, Duncan, Jent, Hatley, Hughes, Heard/Heird/Herd, Houseman/Housman, Priddy, Riley, Stephens, Tarver (which also has african americans in this line), Whitley and Williams.

If I find out more on this particular John Wesley and Annie Jane Murphy Holleman I will be glad to let you know.

Sincerely,

Pam Caldwell
