Subject: [DNA] Haplogroup E1b1b1 - African or European?

I don't have much experience with Haplogroup E, so forgive my novice
Where can you draw the line between European and African subclades in
Hg E? Or can you?
If someone was deduced by FTDNA to be E1b1b1 (=E-M35.1), would he be
able to tell whether or not his ancestry is European by being deep SNP
The reason I ask is that this person's ancestor lived in proximity to
a wealthy slave-owning family of the same surname in the 18th century.
So far, we have no one else from the family tested and he has no STR
match, so no answer there.
I've seen pictures of people of this surname from this location,
online, and some are clearly European while others are clearly
African. This person is of mixed ancestry, so his appearance is not
going to answer the question, which is the ancestry of his patrilineal
