Searched Rudel on FamilySearch, and there is no records with that surname in America before 1800. Searches on Ancestry identify Mary Rood Rudel as one and the same. The Congregational Church in Lisbon was organized December, 1723 and the marriage of Samuel & Mary is the first recorded. There are a dozen other marriage entries for "Rude" but no others for "Rudel", suggesting a possible transcription error.
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.
