Our European ancestors are among the earliest western inhabitants of Turtle Island, United States. Thomas Mail is listed with The 1608, 2nd Virginia Charter, Jamestown. Family oral histories tell us that an ancestor was a British Admiral whom married an American Indian, of which tribe it is not known. This would explain why Wilmore's son, Wilmer Mail was listed as "Colored" on the "Revolutionary War Pension Rolls". Ignorance assumes, that at that time colored meant being of the African Race, however, colored only meant that the person was non-white. Many Indians for many years to come after were labeled as colored. We call this "Paper Genocide".
