My grandfather, who is a caucasian Gatewood from south/eastern Kansas, told me that the Gatewoods had been slave owners. He said that that slaves has taken the name upon being freed. He said that when he was a boy that he new a family of African/American Gatewoods that lived in the same small town in Kansas. This would have been in the 1930s through 40s.
