Slaves yes, but an “M” in the census!

Tempe, AZ

I expected to find slaves in my ancestors census records but I did not expect to find ” M”. Which meant the children were 1/2 white and there were 3 of them. Who was the father? It sure looked like it had to be the father or the sons, all my relatives. I immediatley felt guilty and responsible at the same time. I may have relatives I have never met and they may have relatives they don’t want to meet.
