Hi Diana, I am grasping at straws here as I try to figure out my tri-racial WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN line for which I can make NO connections even tho I have been researching for 13yrs. I have come across the WALKINGSTICK surname and today find an ALBERT WALKING in LA and wondering if there is a connection here. ALBERT is listed as a cousin to JANE and ALICE WILLDEN, who were born in VA. I am working w/33 spellings of the WEEDEN,WHILDEN, surname and find that indeed WILLDEN is one of them. I am especially anxious to find ANY INFO of my ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, listed as born 1833 NC. If of interest, hope you will contact me. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
