There have been so many variations of this name that I have come across, the name is actually Wisted as far as my family line goes. It may have been changed at some point. I dont believe that this is a very common name, as there arent many posts in this forum. I have been trying for a long time trying to locate my 3x great grandparents Michael Wisted b. 1824 in Ireland d. 1873 and his wife Bridget Wisted nee Enright born in Ireland in 1832 and d.1903 Both passed away in Batavia NY. I would hope someone might have some information about them.
