Hi Carolyn,
Thanks so much for responding.
Mine is a most mysterious line and all I have come up w/in
13yrs for certain, are my WEELDON ggrands first found in
Wilmington, NC.
Cannot make any connections altho I suspect that my
VA ancestors may have been among some who migrated to NS and CA in 1783 and from there removed to RI where they
intermarried w/Indians and whites.
Find many familiar surnames in the BOOK OF NEGROES, including WEEDON, the spelling of which is one of 26 that
appear to be connected.
Find a JAMES WHEADON/WHEATON, African, born PA, who lived in NYS prior to removing to CA; would like to get this info
to you-----------do you have Ancestry access?
May I send to your private addy?
My immediate family is from Westchester Co, NY and the only family lore I know is that WE were FPOC coming from
England as indentured servants w/VA kin and Indian ancestry.
Have never been able to prove either, nor find anyone of kin.
Warm regards,
