Hi Leigh, Don't recall if I have contacted you before re: WHEALTON. The surname is one of the spellings(of 33) that I find for my WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN tri-racial line of SC,NC,VA,RI,NY,CT,MN,MA et al. I am having much difficulty finding relevant info and have made NO CONNECTIONS after 13yrs of research. Your reference to Chincoteague is of interest as I cannot rule out that some WHEALTONS there could have been my missing VA ancestors. If of interest, please contact me. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
