Does anyone have the names of the parents of Roderick R Rockwood (Sr.)?He is born in NH in abt. 1803.He marries Elizabeth (Eliza) Stone in Meade Co. KY in 1823.He is well documented in all census data from 1830 to 1880 as he and his extended family travel from KY, to IN, IL, MO, and finally KS.
In the 1880 census he states that his father was born in France.So, Rockwood is probably the anglicized version of Fr name suchas Rouquette, etc.
Note: If this Roderick's father was born in France, then this Roderick is not the son of Thomas and Abigail as listed in Vivan Rockwood's extensive study of the descendants of Richard Rockwood.
This Roderick R. is my ggg grandfather and I'm stumped in trying to take him back another generation to France.Thanks for any help.Steve R.
