  1. Dr. Rufino Agustin deOlloqui of Kingston NB has been incorrectly listed as
    Rufina Agustina Olloqui was a Harvard Graduate and a Civil War Surgeon who practiced in the Kingston/Rexton area until 1900.

    Thank you

  2. I am interested in learning more about Dr. C. Fred Chestnut, who is shown in the above picture. What kind of doctor was he? There’s a possibility that my grandfather’s middle name, Chestnut, was in honour of this doctor’s effort in delivering my grandfather at birth. If anyone has any info, you can contact me at
