Don't have any first hand information relating to New Orleans or Charleston, but would assume that this intemingling did exist there also. One way of keeping the property, land, money, etc. in the family was marrying within the family, also one knew of the background of the individuals. In addition, genetics was'nt really understood at that that time other than animal husbandtry.
