Re: Sullens/Spurlock

I think I've shared this on another thread, but my gggrandmother's marriage license 1857 shows parents William Saunders (white) and Susan Sullens alias Spurlock of Indian extraction. I've seen the same notation for Susan on her son John Saunders marriage record to Elizabeth Fortune.
In my research the efforts of those trying to wipe out the Indian race were forced to use this phrase by law instead of assigning white of colored. Has anyone seen the phrase for anyone else during the time period?>
