I have the account book of one of my ancestors, Asa Rude, which includes a handwritten list of Rude births, presumably his children: Alpheus Oct 8, 1814;Sarah Ann Mar 4, 1816; AdellahDec 8, 1817; Leonidas (my great grandfather, I think, born in Chenango or Binghamton, Broome County, NY) June 23, 1820 and died 13 Oct 1897 in Kalamazoo, MI; James Obidiah June 2, 1822; Mary July 8, 1824; Permilah (sp?)Jane Aug 29, 1826; Sally (no date - perhaps stillborn?);Bolivar Asa May 10, 1830; Ambrose AbrahamSept 30, 1832; Elihu (sp?) BerlewNov 4, 1834; Frances VJuly 12, 1837. My father was Robert Leary Rood, son of Leonidas, son of Asa,Jr, son of Asa, I THINK, and Hannah Berkalew Rude.I'm going crazy trying to connect the dots!Would appreciate any facts you have about this branch of the Rood/Rude family.
