QUADROON (a corruption of quarteroon, Span. cuarteron, from cuarto, Lat. quartus, fourth), strictly a person having onefourth negro blood, the offspring of a mulatto and a white. The children of a mulatto and a negro are called in America zasnbos or sambos (possibly from Span. zambro, Lat. scambus, bowlegged), and the use of Sambo as a proper name for a black servant may have thus originated.
