I'm certainly glad you contacted me as in going back through documents I have found the name of the first wife of Thomas Mudgett. Also, hate to dispute the book of which you refer but this Thomas Mudgett or Muggett was definitely in VA at a time the book places him in MA. Must be another Thomas Mudgett?
