I've seen that line. Matter of fact, I have Henry Lois Lantron's soc sec app. I ordered it in hopes of a clue for my line, of course. nothing. But is the Henry L. Lantron in the Bible info b 1862 his father becuase Henry Lois Lantron was b, 1890 and father is Henry Lafayette lantron and Susie Josephine Hawkins. Can scan a copy and send to your personal email if interested. Was this line in AL?
The Henry Lanton that was mulatto in 1850 rutherford co tn had a son joseph b. 1842, my joseph was born 1842 and his fathers name we found out was henry, so that much fits. Mary Lanton died 1849 probably this Henry's wife, he was widowed at 1850. She was also mulatto. Whatever mulatto means, we all have a definition for that, melungeon and now there are a hundred definitions for fpoc, free persons of color adn I understand it really doesnt' have anything to do with the color of your skin, long story. My line was clearly white, maybe some indian, but mine had only european features, though Henry's son was dark complected and grey eyes, was listed as white in 1870, haven't found him on 1860. But, that's how I know he was mulatto......like I said, whatever that is.
