I received an email this week from John-John-John-Ezra-MaryAnn-Ezra-Mary-Grace-Edith-Nancy (BENNETT) RAWLINGS. She plans on heading north from her home near Nashville, TN on a journey to explore her ancestry. She was seeking advice on where to focus her OLIN Family search. She already had plans to go to East Greenwich, Rhode Island. I recommended she consider visiting Shaftsbury and Bennington, Vermont - they are OLIN hubs for many branches, including hers.

A mini stoneware jug from "OLIN & Co." of Pueblo, CO. sold today on eBay for $465!
I believe the jug was from one of the businesses owned by John-Henry-Caleb-Benjamin-William-Edgar W. OLIN and his brothers Fred E. & Ceylon E. OLIN. Via email, I notified the proprietors of the Edgar OLIN House - a bed-n-breakfast in a Pueblo house originally owned by Edgar -about the auction while it was active in case they'd be interested, but they never replied.

The band released their latest video yesterday and it's pretty good! Check it out here. Ben is a rising star.

Bill OLAN's y-DNA test results have come in! They prove 100% that the OLANs are OLINs.

Boring/Interesting DNA Analysis
Bill's markers also show the same slight mutation as mine, plus another one - This indicates that the mutation we share occurred before our lines diverged - Bill is descended from John-Joseph-Phillip-Benjamin OLIN's son Benjamin, while I am descended from son John.
