John, thanks for sharing the story of the apples - I recommend that everyone read it.

Hello Jim,

I found an interesting story about Micah while researching one of my ancestors. Don't know if you ever heard of the story. I am putting a link to it here. The story is called "The Curse of Micah Rood's Apples". Feel free to add it to his biography if you feel it is appropriate. I for one would consider a story about my ancestor to be worthy of being part of his profile. My ancestral great grandpa, Jacob Hyde, dug the grave for Micah and is mentioned in the story as well. Warm Regards

Rood-1 and Rood-475 appear to represent the same person because: I determined that the previously empty and unsourced Rood-1 profile is the same person as Rood-475.
