The author of this article discusses the ethnic origins and races of our ancestors. Like the Bass family of Norfolk County and Camden County who are listed both white and black in the records. The census records did not have a listing for non-white, so Indians and foreigners would be listed as black.
The author gives an early history of the Bass family, beginning with the marriage of a Nansemond Indian woman named Elizabeth to John Bass in 1638. There was an undocumented William Bass (b. 1755) that settled in Camden County, NC, with connections to Norfolk County, VA. It is believed these are Indian families.
