The spelling of "Gilderoy" is correct. So is the spelling "Gilroy" correct. I have a question: Would you be willing to send me a copy of your "Edward" documentation from PEI? Also, if you have not already found it since your 2003 posting, I have documentation on:
1. Where Barnabas (Barney) used both spellings in his petition for land. There is a reason for the two spellings.
2. Where he says he ENLISTED (not drafted into the 54th.)
3. Where he married Dorcas Mills in Nova Scotia. The Barnabas who married Martha is a grandson.
