There's an African-American branch early on in the US: see Charles Henderson Baty for a possible starting point. Charles was born about 1824 in Jamesville, Virginia and is described as both Black and Mulatto in the census records. Usually this means there was one or more white slave owner fathers in the ancestry. I found Charles through my work on profiling the enlisted men of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry of the Union Army. Charles was the brother-in-law of a 54th soldier.
