Hi Ryan, I am grasping at straws as I try to figure out my WEEDEN, WEELDON/BROWN AA/Native family line of SC, NC and VA. Came across the MANUEL/EMANUEL surname years ago in my research, but that deadended as have most of the many surnames that appear to be connected. I am however, curious abt your ISABELLA, as the BRUTON surname may have a connection to BRUTON, VA where I believe some kin were slaves. Also, am interested in the ASKEW surname which somehow connects in NC. Wish I could be more specific, but after 13yrs of research, I am still w/o connections nor does ANYONE acknowledge kinship to my line, but figure if I keep at it long enough, someone will come up w/relevant info. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
