Harry, I am always eager to find ANY info of Poughkeepsie, NY as I believe that some ancestors of my tri-racial WEEDEN,WELDON,WEELDON/BROWN line settled there. I have yet to make ANY CONNECTIONS for my line after 13yrs of research, BUT, yesterday came across some info that indicated my gggrands, SAMUEL and HAGAR BROWN of Wilmington, NC adopted a MACKEY surname child. The SCOTT surname appears to be connected, altho HOW, remains a mystery. Contact me please, if of interest. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
