Probably. My whole family is from Alabama and my dad traced our genealogy to be distant relatives of Robert E. Lee. I am happy to be liberal and far removed from that.

Nope.  No one in my family was in this country before the 20th century.

As far back as I can trace my ancestors, they were poor farmers. Did poor people own slaves? I really have no idea. I can't say no for sure, but not that I know of.
