Subject: colonial American dialect phono info

Hello! Could anyone tell me where I may find information on the early
English dialects of the American colonies? I am interested only in
phonology (not morphology, syntax, etc.) and specifically that of the
Virginia area and Massachusetts area. Thank you for any help!
