Hello Max, I am most curious abt the OFFUTT and WHEELER surnames here. I find OFFUTT for people of color (slaves?) in KY and MD and am wondering if there could be a link to my tri-racial line of WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN. I wonder too, if the WHEELER surname has a link, as I have found it to be one of my 34 various surname spellings. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
