I believe that a particular part of history has been buried in the memories of my ancestors because the society in which they existed made them hide from those who would cast aspersions. Had the Black people of the state of Texas not embraced my family tree, our story might have all been blended into "white" history as were the stories of mixed blood colonial Virginians, such as Gideon Gibson. Explain, if you please, what Acadian descent implies your ancesters were ethnically. It's always meant French Canadian in my understanding. Am I wrong?
