Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I posted the Oldrin family monument photo. Feel free to reuse it if you want.

I also took a photo of the actual inscription for Edward Oldrin Sr. but it is very weathered.
If you want I can send you that even though only a few words are legible.

Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I have 1 photo of Edward Oldrin Sr.'s gravestone inscription, which is quite weathered.
However, I could not post it because the website said there are too many other items posted. Could you remove the cemetery photo, and perhaps also the list of Methodist ministers so I can post the inscription?

Va Nest Family in Neshanic Cemetery
Dear Richard,
I see that you have been quite active in researching/posting information on the Neshanic (Reformed Church) Cemetery. Do you know if any of the original burial records still exist? And if so, where?
I am researching my family members buried there. Most of these relatives have the surname Van Nest/Van Neste and they seem to have been buried close together, possibly all in the same original lot.
'Would greatly appreciate hearing form you. Thanks & best regards, Randy R.

Milner Tree
Good Day Richard
You sent my cousin Chris Chiaponni a link on the Milner family tree on Family Search. Can you tell me how and when John Miler 1700-1763 from Helperthorpe Yorkshire England arrived Nova Scotia and continued the line with Johnathan Milner 1743?
Also I we were told that our Milner's had 2 "L"s but I see that is not the case.

Thank you for your time
