Thank you. All of this convinces me once more that I need to try to diagram all of the Olds people in Berkshire County in the 19th century. They all must be connected through common roots - there are many cases of repeating first names, apparently old family names. The Olds book provides little bits and pieces of information, some of which I suspect are incorrect, but doesn't help to indicate common ancestors for most. The spottiness of vital records compounds the problem.If I can produce something worthwhile, I'll post it where everyone can see it.
