Hi Bonnie, I think I figured mine out tonight. Mine are Evan Whildin, wife Sarah Matthews. They came to Lansford in about 1850...actually Mauch Chunk fist. In Wales they had a daughter Mary who I believed died in childhood there, Elizabeth b 1838 Bedwelthy Monmouthshire who was living with her parents in 1841 but her Matthews grandparents in 1851 in Wales. Elizabeth was my great great grandmother. She married Thomas Shinton in 1856. The Whildin's had the following children here in PA:
Mary, Jamima, James, Evan, John and William. I haven't come across a crossover to your Whildins...yet. But I'll be watching for one. I think it might be one of their children who crosses over into your line.
