Hi Teresa, I am researching my tri-racial WEEDEN,WHILDEN,WEELDON/BROWN family line of SC, NC, VA, RI, MN, CT, NY, et al AND just now coming across the WHITFIELD surname. I am especially interested in ANY MN info you might be able to share as some of my line did settle in St.Paul, who were born in NC. My cousin AURELIA WHEELDIN, was one of the first Black female boxers of the world and an actress on the APOLLO stage; She was born in MN. If of interest, please contact me. Sincerely, carol wheeldin warren.
