Any Vivian slave owners?

Does anyone have any idea if there were American slave owners among the Vivian family? There is a huge African American Vivian family line in the USA and the name similarity challenges coincidence. Black men named Richard, Earl, Willus, and Ashley. These men are range in age from mid 70s to late 80s. Their father was Jesse Charles Vivian. Jesse's brohters included Robert and Thomas. Any clues would be helpful. Some of these African American are very successful business persons - some are curious about their white ancestors.
