Hi Wanda, Don't recall if I have contacted you before. I am researching my WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN tri-racial line of SC,NC,VA,TN,KY,MN,CT,NY et al. The CANTY/CANTEY surname is related somehow, and I am hoping for ANY info as I am batting ZERO w/making connections for my own line---------I have yet to hear from ANYONE who acknowledges kinship to it, after 13yrs of research. I do recall that my Father and MARIETTA CANTY were close friends in Hartford, CT; MARIETTA achieved some fame as an actress in the 1900s. Know also that many Blacks from the Charleston, SC area migrated to and settled in Hartford, CT. I am especially anxious to find ANY info of my ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, born in 1833 NC. If of interest, please contact me. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
