Peep the surnames listed. All but one surname is on the indigenous surnames videos that I did. Please go watch those videos on Tasha Xi & No Grandma Killers YouTube channels. This article states about the one surname not on the list that the man’s mother was born in Africa. Every other family from Virginia & Tennesse are descendants indigenous tribes. —Tasha Xi
“Seeking a better life, nearly 400 Central Virginia residents left the United States and sailed with their families for Africa between 1829 and 1865.
They were among 3,700 Virginians who emigrated to Liberia as part of the American Colonization Society’s efforts to remove African-Americans from the states and in the process Christianize the old continent.
Liberia was founded to receive black emigrants from the U.S., as well as Africans who had been rescued from slave ships.
The colonization movement was controversial from the start. It began in 1816, before Southern attitudes toward slavery hardened. It was deeply racial in nature, and at first, was meant to remove already-free blacks, not slaves, from the country. Northern abolitionists opposed it. They wanted an end to slavery, not to see the free blacks, or the enslaved, expelled from the country.”
