Hi Kathleen
I am back to ZERO; unfortunately, the descendant of the family I contacted is NOT a family of color, so I am again
grasping at straws.
I am also wondering now if this DAVID WILLDEN, listed
as FPC in NJ is the same as the " " listed as born
in NS and visiting Boston.
It is entirely possible that given the listing of 'COLORED', he was able to pass for white and there is
always the possibility that his family was unaware of his
racial identity.
I am at a loss to know where to go from here, but again,
want to thank you for your help.
carol wheeldin warren.
