Hello Ty, I left you a previous message, but rec'd no response. The ALSTON surname is somehow connected to my tri-racial WEEDEN, WHILDEN, WEELDON/BROWN family line of SC,NC,and VA, BUT, I have yet to make any contacts or find any links even after 13yrs of research. I am especially anxious to find ANY info of my ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, listed as born 1833 NC. Can you be of ANY help?--------do know that some family was in PA. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
