Indentured Servants, Slaves and Open-Minded Loving People, They Were Our Ancestors


The first African Americans came to the colonies as Indentured Servants and in the early colony of Virginia were comfortable intermarrying with Native Americans. The Portuguese, who made their way very early to the Appalachian Mountains, were also comfortable intermarrying with African Americans and Native Americans. Native Americans intermarried with Africans because they often found themselves living on the same plantation as slaves. And on occasion, the Jewish, Dutch, English, French and Spanish landowners took slave women as their wives or concubines.
