History[ edit ] The local West Virginia historian Hu Maxwell was bemused by the origin of these people when he studied Barbour County history in the late s: There is a clan of partly-colored people in Barbour County often called "Guineas", under the erroneous presumption that they are Guinea negroes.
They vary in color from white to black, often have blue eyes and straight hair, and they are generally industrious. Their number in Barbour is estimated at one thousand. They have been a puzzle to the investigator; for their origin is not generally known.
They are among the earliest settlers of Barbour. Male of Grafton, West Virginiabelongs to this clan, and after a thorough investigation, says "They originated from an Englishman named Male who came to America at the outbreak of the Revolution.
From that one man have sprung about of the same name, not to speak of the half-breeds. By the s, many individuals of these mixed-race families had married into the white community and their descendants identified as white, serving in West Virginia regiments during the Civil War.
Records in the Barbour County Courthouse indicate that several of them petitioned the courts successfully to be declared legally white at this time.
Although the local public schools were not segregated at this time, truancy laws — which were strictly enforced for white children — were typically neglected with regard to "Ridge people". Demographics[ edit ] If related individuals in the surrounding counties of Harrison and Taylor are included, the CRP probably now number about 1, almost all of whom bear one of fewer than a dozen surnames.
Inof the 67 Mayles who had listed telephones, all but three lived on "The Ridge. As an adult, Mail purchased a black female slave named Nancy. InMail — perhaps uniquely so far as historians have found documentary evidence for it — both emancipated and publicly "married" Nancy, despite the fact that interracial marriage was then illegal in Virginia.
Be it known to all to whom it may concern that I, Wilmore Mail, of the County of Hampshire and Commonwealth of Virginia do by these presents liberate, emancipate, and forever set free I have set my hand and affixed my seal on this 6th day of May in the year of our Lord Although clearly beginning life as a white Englishman, the Federal Census of finally indicates him as being "free colored".
Although there is as yet no documentary connection made, Mail is the only one of Gates' white ancestors for which a name is known. Paul Heinegg has recently located many records from the s to the s that include racial descriptors " free black ", "free mulatto", "free colored", etc.
Note that, prior tothe area of Barbour County west of the Tygart Valley River was part of Harrison County and the area east of the river was part of Randolph County.
His research found only one incident of interracial union. In an interview[ citation needed ], he pointed out that the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania press had carried repeated sensational magazine articles in the early s about the area, highlighting its poverty and mixed-race communities.
He suggests this was the origin of stories about the group. The account above predates such articles.
The photographs of Male descendants that are included in his book, many from this same time period, do not show obvious physical characteristics associated with African phenotypes. But, numerous photographs of the Chestnut Ridge People during this time period show they had complexions noticeably darker than neighbors.
Note the above discussion, however, on the court records of some of these soldiers petitioning to be declared legally white in and Native American heritage[ edit ] "What Ms. Finley fails to state is, that Wilmore Mail is the son of Wilmore Sr. It has been told that Priscilla was a pretty little daughter of a slave girl and a Cherokee Indian.
Her mother was supposed to have been a slave girl brought to this country in the middle s by a Frenchman from the Bahamas by the name of Marquis Calmes.
It is not known whether she was of native Bahamian Indian ancestry or not. She eloped with a Cherokee Indian by the name of Harris and to these two Priscilla was born.
French and Spanish settlers in America intermarried freely with the Indians, but the English seldom mixed with the natives. Hence it appears that among the pioneer families of our County, The Mayle, Mail or Male family have Indian blood in their veins.
According to family tradition, Marquis Calmes, a Frenchman residing in Virginia, had a French servant woman, whether she was from France or from the French colony on the island of Hayti, we do not know.TRUANCY Truancy or absenteeism is unapproved absence from class or any program.
