Elizabeth Rood was born 19 Apr 1716 in Stafford, Connecticut Colony, to parents Jonathan Rood and Marg[a]rit Rood. [Need to create profiles for them.]
RESEARCH NOTE REGARDING ELIZABETH'S BIRTH
The birth date given for Elizabeth is 19 April 1716. #Her purported mother, [[Mariner-1|Mary (Mariner) Rood) died 30 December 1731. Therefore, #Mary was not Elizabeth's mother. In Stafford Vital Records is found Elizabeth Rood born 19 April 1716 - the same birth date as this profile. Elizabeth has been disconnected from Samuel and Mary (Mariner Rood) and will be connected to correct parents, Jonathan and Margarit Rood of Stafford.
Norwich Vital Records (https://archive.org/details/vitalrecordsnor01congoog) page 39 shows that J was born 9 Oct 1685, son of Thomas Rood and Hannah Bennum.
The same page shows Sam'l Rood born 20 Mar 1691 - this is who the memorial shows as the father of J - son of Sam'l & Mary Mariner.
I dug into this because I found a genealogy that name them as parents for Elizabeth (Rood) Daynes (born 9 Apr 1716 in Stafford) - since Mary died in 1715, she couldn't be their daughter.
Stafford records had an Eliz. born that date, daughter of J and Margarit Rood, a that J, son of Thomas married Margaret in 1708.That in turn led me to the record above that shows Jonathan's birth.
