Comments: Hello Cousins' I'm looking forward to meeting many of you in Philly next year! Also, I hope to share historical and genetic perspectives. Granted people from all over the world have traveled to DelMarVa for thousands of years, we have strong evidence that the Welburn lineage is strongly Native American. The note following quote. "The only other place on earth where X is found at an elevated level apart from other American Indian groups like the Ojibwe is among the Druze in the Hills of Galilee in northern Israel and Lebanon. The work of Shlush et al. (2009) demonstrates that this region was in fact the center of the worldwide diffusion of haplogroup X". http://dnaconsultants.com/_blog/DNA_Consultants_Blog

Comments: My Aunt Charlotte Elias Brown did a lot of family research some time ago. She wrote down a family background for me ane it went back at least 4 generations, I think. But it was destroyed in a fire at my home where I lost almost everything. Also sometime in the 80's I attended a Family reunion in West Chester, PA. This was the very first connection I had with our true family decendants past my grandmother, Elsie Burton Elias. At that reunion I discovered family relationship with a family I grew up with down the street from us growing up.

I have 38 nieces and nephews, 39 great nieces and nephews and 7 great-great nieces and nephews. Wow Oh Wow. I am a mother of Twins Sons (30 years old) Quinton and Clinton Shippen.

Glad the reunion is in Philly. I also saw where someone I worked with googled my name and go me from our Family Web site. Wonderful. So with God's Blessings, and his grace and mercy, I will see you in 2010 at the Reunion. Take Care everyone and keep sending info on our Web page.

Comments: Let me try to get this right: My grandmother was a Weldon. If I'm not mistaken, her grandmother and grandfather were Mary Gray and "*.* Welburn. I may have that wrong, but will check. Regardless, a bit of recent history - I now live in PA where I am from, but used to live in Seattle. On one trip back east, I questioned my oldest aunt, Aunt Vivie and her third in line living sister at the time, Aunt Cinnie; "who was the white woman on the wall in the portrait?". Aunt Vivie informed me that she was Mary Gray, an antecedent. This portrait still exists and is in great shape. If you don't have it in the photo archives, perhaps I can photograph it and send it in. It is quite interesting.

Comments: As Salaam Alaikum Family (Peace be unto you all) Just wanted to say that in this past year Allah has blessed me to meet many new family members across America.I had a wonderful experience of meeting so many new blood ties. I felt like Alex Haley in "Roots" meeting my ancestors and relations. We are a blessed family of Muslums, Christians and possibly some Jewish relations. (Who knows how far back we really go)? But what I am trying to say is May Allah (God) bless us to continue to grow with each other, love and respect each other (as what was expressed to my side of the Tuck family tree. Just to meet you all in Ocean City, MD and then at the family reunion in Philadelphia will be a expereince that I will never forget. I especially want to extend my thanks and appreciation to Kimberly-Chase Longus and Cousin Phil Hudson who showed a lot of love to us in the Tuck family. I pray that Allah will continue to bless us all and share more knowledge with each other about family matters and eve

Comments: Was goggling names of people from my past who I hadn't thought of in years and I came up with Clara Shippen on this site. I worked for Colonial Penn in Philadelphia from 1/1976 to 4/1978 and I remember a Clara Shippen who was a supervisor in the word processing department. I remember when I left she was pregnant with twins. I'm wondering if the Clara Shippen listed with the Weldons is the same lady.

In my last sign in I left out the Tyre and called her Nancy Jane Welburn Short (sorry - I'm so excited about all of this history). I don't think I know many others who can go back five generations. Thanks again.

Jane Welburn/Tyre/Short. There ought to be laws that we can carry our ancestors last names. Remember in honoring your mother and your father (this includes your mother and your father that came before them). Peace and Blessings
