Hi Roger, I would like so much to be in touch w/you re: DEAS surname, which I believe somehow connects to my WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN tri-racial line of SC,NC,VA,RI,MN,TN,KY,CT,MA,NS and Canada. Have yet to make ANY CONNECTIONS after 13yrs of research; nor have I heard from ANYONE who acknowledges kinship. Most curious abt this SENA BROWN, AS I have NO info on my ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, listed as born 1833 NC. Hope to hear from you. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
