Melungeons are of unkown origin, but apparently may very well have been in the Southeast before the first English settlers. Linda Griggs describes them as: "olive complected, dark eyed, dark skinned people living in Appalachia" in Wayfaring Stranger. Modern genetic studies suggest kinship with the "Free Moors."
