Hi Dennis, Wonder if you have found any additional info on the WHEELDON surname? I am researching my WEELDON/BROWN, WEEDEN,WHILDEN tri-racial line and trying to figure out the Native ancestry. My line begins w/my ggrandfather, WM LAWRENCE WEELDON, Black (suspect He was of mixed blood), born 1829 SC. My ggrandmother, CHARATA BROWN, mulatto, was born 1833 NC. I believe the family were slaves in Christ Church, SC as I first find them in 1870 Wilmington, NC. I find nothing on either prior to that time and have yet to connect w/anyone who knows of the line, or has a connection to it. I have recently rec'd info that the WHEELDON surname is of Cherokee AND/OR Sioux ancestry, but find nothing that would substantiate either. Hope that you can be of some help. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
