Joanne, Grasping at straws here, trying to make some sense of my family history, and somehow got to your postings. Cannot trace my family of WEELDONS(NC/VA),WHILDENS(SC),and WEEDENS(?). We are a tri-racial family and no one has as yet claimed kinship. Believe that some may have chosen to pass and are lost forever, but agonizing over not finding any kin. Hope to hear from you. Most sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
