Hi Beverly, For years now, I have been trying to make a connection for my tri-racial line of WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN of SC,NC,VA,RI,MN,MA,CT,NY et al, but NO ONE knows of them, NOR does ANYONE acknowledge KINSHIP to them. I have posted several messages as I suspect that the WALDEN surname somehow connects, but to no avail. Believe that my ggrands were slaves in SC prior to finding the WEELDONS in 1870 Wilmington, NC. Wonder if you can be of help? Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
