Could someone with access to a copy of Mona Haag Rood's "Rood/Roode/Rude Genealogy Descendants of Thomas Roode and Sarah (?)"
check to see if the author cites the source of the following record for Mary Rood, daughter of Thomas Jr, that appears on page 7?
"Mary ROOD was born on 7 May 1699 in Preston, New London, CT. (36) Parents: Thomas ROOD Jr. and Mary? UNKNOWN"
I have come across a 1718 land record from Middlesex Co Mass that refers to a Mary Rood in Preston CT. Knowing the source cited for the above record may help me establish whether the two Marys are the same person and prove a long sought after family connection.
