John Oldford was baptized 30 December 2014 at Anglican Church Bonavista, along with his brother James. 
His first son was James Oldford. Other children uncertain. Died of old age at 83.
John's tombstone shows he died May 3, 1897 at the age of 83. His birth would be approximately December 1813 then. (Note: the 83 could be mistaken for 88 which is probably why some people mark his birth in 1809.)
