Re: “'Kaleidoscope': the story of a discovered African-American ancestry

There is a typographical error in my comment of 07/03/2015. We came to the conclusion that the Chavis family my mother located in Vicksburg in the early '50s were descendants of Jordan Chavis's (not Davis's) former slaves.

Alexander Chavis was my great great granddaddy.

Re: “'Kaleidoscope': the story of a discovered African-American ancestry

WILLIAM 44, I am one of your second cousins.

Do you believe our great great great grandfather, Jordan Chavis, did not have any Indian blood? I heard my mother (who traced both sides of my family back to its roots in the old world) say many times that her Chavis line had Indian blood in it. I was thinking it came through Jordan Chavis. During her research, we made a pilgrimage to Vicksburg in the early '50s and located a Chavis family. They were black. After a short visit, it was my mother's conclusion that they were descendants of Jordan Davis's former slaves. We went from there to the battlefield and had a wonderful day.
