Chris, I am grasping at straws as I try to figure out my tri-racial line of WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN of SC,NC,VA,RI, NS,MN,NY,CT et al. The HAZARD/HAZZARD surname somehow connects to my line, and I find it connected to RI Native Indians. Have yet to look into the ALLEN SURNAME. What is of most interest in your post is the mention of TOMPKINS and NY-----know that the TOMPKINS surname connects to my WHILDEN line somehow. Contact me if of interest, please. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
