Re: Wright-Whittle of Penia

I can only trace my line back to my great great granfather, Willis (E?) Weldon, born around 1835 - 1855 in AL or GA. He had a daughter around 1875 named Mary (Mollie)who married a Heatherly around Cullman County, AL. I have been in contact with Mollie's grandchildren who say that they have seen a AL state census that indicate a James Weldon born in 1808 living with an Mary Heatherly in 1900. I think he was designated as Grandfather in the census.

Willis married a Sarah (Sally) Hill who had at least two daughters (Edna and Viany)before the April, 1888 marriage. Among Willis and Sally's children were all (we assume) born in Cullman County, AL. They include James (Jim), John Henry, Floyd (Toy), Garland (Happy), Sylvester and Ella.
I think Garland and Ella spent time as adults in CA and Floyd and James were found in GA. John and Sylvester lived in OK. James married a Lydia Hilton and Sylvester never married. (Most of that is from memory though).

John Henry Weldon was my Great grandfather he was born around 1900 in Cullman and died in about 1975 in Lindsey, OK. Ne married Ciecil Elizebeth Deatherage (duahgter of Elzora Washington Deatherage) around 1920's) His son Bill (born Willie Washington but changed name legally) Weldon is my grandfather. He was born about 1922 and lives today near Fort Cobb Lake in Caddo County, OK. Bill married Dorothy Estell Walker and they two sons Jeral Max Weldon (my dad born 1948) and Billy Weldon. I was born in OK City in 1972 and my brother was born in 1975. My Son, Jackson Max, was born in 1999 in OK City.

Any of this sound familiar?
