Well Cheryl, Looks as tho we have some digging to do. Looked the name up on Ancestry, and interestingly enough the WHITLOW surname appears somehow connected. Now, I have seen the WHITLOW surname, I think w/WHILDEN, or perhaps in VA-----------I usually have instant recall, but not this time. If this is of any help, my line may also be connected somehow to the GABRIEL WHELDON line (of the Mayflower). Let's write email@example.comOR firstname.lastname@example.org. The answer is out there. carol.
