Searched Mary Rudel on Family Search, with only parameter a birth date of 1600 to 1750. No hits for our Mary. Searches on Ancestry identify Mary Rood Rudel as one and the same. More research necessary. They could be one and same, not enough data to know for sure.
Many trees on Ancestry, Heritage, Geni and others list Mary Rood as the husband of Samuel Parish, but without any sources. "Roswell Parish" also lists a Mary Rood (but no birth date given) as Samuel's wife. Without a birth date, it is difficult to make that connection with Wiki's Rood-9. When an actual marriage record of the time names Mary Rudel as the spouse, that must be the choice for the present. Later in the same source that names Mary Rudel, there is a recitation that Benjamin Parish of Preston marries Mary Rude of Canterbury on Jan 29, 1735-6. Research has yet to be done, but a family tree has been found which names Benjamin's bride as Mercy or Marcy Rood, one of Mary's sisters.
