There may have been Portuguese in the Mountains, as well as other groups
that did not intermix. That does not mean that the Melungeon were
Portuguese. It is all quite confusing to me.
There *was* Portuguese in the Mountains and the Melungeons *were*
Portuguese. They said they were Portuguese who mixed with Indians, blacks and
whites. They had no reason to lie about being Portuguese. There is really
nothing confusing or mysterious - there never has been.
