AUDIO SLIDE SHOW: Tracing a family name to a hidden past
All his life, people had asked Joe Mozingo about his name. He began to look into it, and the more he learned, the more he realized a key part of his family's history had been buried. So he set out to learn the story, traveling from the tidelands of Virginia to the hollows of Kentucky and southeastern Indiana and beyond. At times, he struggled to absorb what he was finding. He learned that his early ancestry reflected not so much a quirk of American history as the messy start of it, seeding an internal conflict that continues today.
