Looking for information on the following people enumerated in the census records:

1870:
HALL, James M 13 M Mulatto
HALL, Benjamin F 10 M Mulatto
HALL, Ruth J 8 F Mulatto
[note: These children are living in the Berrian Thomas household. It is believed that they are his wife, Mary's, children from her first marriage to Seborn Hall. Which Seborn Hall, however, is unknown]

1880:
HALL, Jeff 24 M Indian FL AL AL
HALL, Catherine 30 F Black FL AL NC

HALL, Sarah 15 F Mulatto FL GA AL
HALL, Benjamin 13 M Mulatto FL GA AL
[note: these children are living in the William Bland household. I believe that his wife, Martha was a Thomas. These two children are listed as niece and nephew]

I am interested in finding out where the non-white blood comes from. Family stories are that these people were Creek. Would like to prove or refute that. Would also like to know if the non-white blood comes from the Hall line or from those who married into the Hall line.

Thanks!
