Hi Kelly, On all the records of the North and Whann family in La. related to your family, I found them to be listed as white. The North family did come in from NC area, but from England. The Whatt/Sheppard family were found coming from England, to PA, then to New Orleans. Do be careful with the trees listed on this family, I found many mistakes. It would be best to do your own tree. You will find many records in La on the Whann family. Hope this helps. Good luck. Bryghtstar
