Anderson/Ivey/Chapman Family

I have been trying for years to get information on my Gmother's family from Lafollette, TN. My Gmother was Hattie Anderson (1910-1986). Her parents were Jacob Ross Anderson (1884-1952) and Nellie Ivey (1889-1937). I know that Nellie's mother was Easter Ivey (1861-1945) and her father was Harvey Chapman. I am trying to figure out the race of Easter's parents, George Ivey and Nancy Smith. I am COMPLETELY confused as to the race of Easter. This is the information I have from census records: 1880-Mulatto, 1900-Black, 1910-Mulatto, and 1920-White. Her death certificate also states White. I don't know if she was mixed Cherokee or Black. I have no family pictures except that of my Gmother to compare facial structure/skin color because she moved to South Carolina in her 20's.

I also am trying to find the parents of Harvey Chapman who never married Easter but had several children by her.

If anyone has information on the Jacob Ross Anderson (1884-1952), Jacob Anderson (1840-1920), and George W. Anderson (1802-1882) lines, please share.
