There are some Vias in Patrick Co.,VA who married into many lines there. Many people in Patrick Co.,VA were part Cherokee. Has Via been listed on the Melungeon sites? Via sounds Spanish, and some Melungeon (tri-triracial) peoples were listed "mulatto" on the censuses. Some were thought to be part Spanish or Portuguese from sailors who left ships in Jamestown, etc, early on.
