Re: Bean and Bane families.I'm sure that you are right. More and more, I am amazed at how many families from Baltimore Co MD connect to my own Wilburn families VS Welborn families that married into Teague families.
I always raise the risk of a dispute here...But I cannot see how these two Welborn/Wilburn lines would not share the same ancestors from early VA...And then beyond due to descendants of both Wilburns and Welborns also marrying into the same families.
Bailey family is just one example...There seem to be many many other examples too.
At any event, I always learn something new whenever I view your posting history....Including the early Copas from VA. Copas/Satterfield/Wilburnallied families.
