Hello David, Just coming across your posting here which gives me a bit more info for/but not including the times of my WEEDEN,WEELDON,WHILDEN,WHELDON,WILDEN/BROWN AA/Native family line. I am having little success tracing my family line which somehow includes the BELLINGER surname. My ggrandfather, WM LAWRENCE WEELDON, Black, was born in 1829 SC-----------I believe he was a slave of the WHEELDON/WHILDEN family of Christ Church, SC. I am grasping at straws here after researching for 13yrs and no one claiming kinship. Can you be of any help? Most sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
