    This is really an interesting article how this family used DNA to find its African roots. This is at the end of the article.
    ""He's delved even farther into his past - he had a DNA test to find what African tribe and country the Barton slaves descended from.
    Augustine Gouayou, a member of the Bamileke tribe from the Central African country of Cameroon, was a 99.7 percent blood match to Mason's. She attended the reunion as a surprise guest.
    "It's a chilly feeling," she said. "I'm just a bridge for them to the past.""
