Hi Chris, Wondering what progress you have made on the HOXIE/HOXSIE surname? Curious to know abt your RI connection, if any and if so, wonder if you have come across the TILLINGHAST surname? Find that the prominent RI TILLINGHAST family has an AfricanAmerican ANN TILLINGHAST WEEDEN listed and am trying to figure out if She is connected to my WEELDON/WEEDEN line. Hope to hear from you. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
