Unfortunately, no I can't for sure. We are decended from one of his sons, Richard (or Edward Jr. See below),whose line we can follow down. I'm trying to trace Richard's (or Edward, Jr's) father, Edward, Sr back. Apparently Edward, Sr was an indentured servant (maybe indentured to a John Walker and became unindentured in 1672) who worked his way out of servitude and later married a woman of English descent, a Magaret Pierce-Bayley. My cousin told me that an African acquaintaince told him that Mozingo was a common sub-Saharan name. We're trying to prove that he (or one or both of his parents) were indeed from sub-Saharan Africa. We are also trying to prove (or disprove) that his parent(s) were on the first slave ship to Jamestown as Edward, Sr was living near there and the time frame makes it possible. I would love to have DNA testing done, but my line went from Edward, Sr, Richard (or Edward, Jr), George, Pierce, to Susan, b. 04-10-1803 in Lenoir Co., NC. Susan was my father's mother's father's mother. There is also a doubt as to whether Richard could have been Edward, Jr. My cousin and family lore says Richard. My own research shows the line from Susan going back to Edward, Jr. Edward, Sr. died in 1712 in North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., VA. If you have more information about any of those Mozingo's I would appreciate you letting know. My own father was born to late to know Susan, but some of his older siblings as well as his mother and her siblings knew her. It is said about her, Susan, that she had a brownish skin tone coloration and was either of Native American or African descent. But I've not come across any NA lineages...at least yet.
