Hi Bettie, I am researching my WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN tri-racial family line of SC, NC, VA, RI, MN, NY, CT et al. KNOW that there is a connection to the WEED,DILL,and BEAN SURNAMES, but fail to make ANY connections for my own line, much less these others. I am most especially anxious to find ANY INFO of my ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, listed as born 1833 NC, altho I suspect VA or RI. Contact me, if anything here is of interest. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
