Hi Lee, I am working on my tri-racial line of WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN w/little success and hoping that you can share info of the BLISS surname which connects somehow. My line of SC connects to the RI WEEDEN INDIANS altho, I have yet to hear from anyone who acknowledges kinship. Also, I am trying to figure out how the TILLINGHAST surname connect to my line in NC. I am of the opinion that there was a lot of race mixing in early RI and I am certain that some are loath to give out info, which unfortunately, impedes much progress in researching family histories. Hope to hear from you. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
