Re: JOHN STROUD, 1675, VA.>NC.
Does anyone have any further record of David Stroud son of John and Sarah, who was baptized at Bristol Parish?
Patrick O'briant of Granville County, NC married Elizabeth who chose Patrick's son as her attorney to recover her dower share of her former husband's, David Stroud's, property.I am guessing that it was David's share in someone else's estate and she was claiming her share as his widow.
I find a David Stroud on the Muster rolls for Granville in 1754.
