Hi Marlene, This is amazing----------have a theory that my VA ancestors may have been among those who migrated to NS and CA in 1783, and from there removed to RI where they intermarried w/Indians and whites. Have just rec'd some info from a LAURIE JOHNSON, re: a JAMES WEEDEN (WEADEN) and family who were in Ontario in 1881.(Ontario board) Believe these were my ancestors, as JAMES was born in PA, and lived in NY prior to moving to CA. My own family (tri-racial) is from NYS (terrible records) w/PA connections that I cannot find after posting for 13yrs.STRANGE!!!! FOR NS, have found the WILLDEN,WEEDEN,WEATEN and WHEATON AA surnames which must be connected. Would LOVE your help-------------THANKS SO MUCH FOR ASKING. Warm regards, carol.
