Surname Saturday: WELDEN

WELDEN is the surname of my paternal grandmother's paternal grandmother, Blanche. This is one of my more "typical" American lines that started out in Virginia, moved west to Kentucky, then Missouri, and finally to Oklahoma. I am not sure of their European origins. I have a lot of research to do on this line. Most of my info comes from secondary sources.
