I'd like to change the parents of Mary (Curtis) Ruggles 1588-1674 who is in the PGM portfolio.

She attached to her grandfather. And her father and mother are here:


Thanks in advance.

I will post a comment and link to this thread on the profile. 


Mary Curtis the daughter of Thomas Curtis and 1st wife Mary Camp married Thomas Ruggles 1 Nov. 1620 in Nazing, Essex, England per John William Linzee citing Parish registers.[1] After Thomas Ruggles died she married second to Ralph Roote.[2][3] She was baptized on Mar 1589 in Nazeing, Essex, England.[4] She died on 14 Feb 1674/5 in Roxbury, MA.[3][5]

I've not studied the records in detail, but from what I've seen, your proposal makes sense.
I concur that she should be protected; Anne B, you can do that right?

I concur Mary Curtis Ruggles d. 1674 in Roxbury, Mass. was daughter of Thomas Curtis and Mary Camp. William and Agnes were her grandparents.

William and Agnes also had a dtr Mary, who married 1582 John Reed. From my long ago researches on this family.

The Curtis/s Family Society Database also agrees with this.

Supporting Ellen and Anne B. Concur!
I changed the parents last evening. I was surprised to discover that this hadn't been done earlier, since there were no objections here, and participants in this discussion had encouraged Roland Baker to carry out his proposal. (And there was no project protection on the profile.)

The PGM project might want to add project protection to this profile.
She's now PPP
