Hi Carol,

You can be sure if your family is listed as black before the 1960's cultural revolution, that they are Native American . Weeden is a common enough name in the native community and the places you have named would make me believe they were. Also, the type of work such as fishing would make that all ring true , on board ship and such.

Happy Hunting......Janet
