Surnames: DREW, BOODY
I am looking for the ancestry of Olive DREW wife of Joseph BOODY of Strafford, NH area. According to "Annals of the Boodeys in New England" she was born 3 Jun 1752. She d Jan 1826 according to Journal of Enoch Hayes Place (and gravestone Strafford Cemetery: b 1752).
The eldest child of Joseph & Olive was b 23 Dec 1773 [Annals of the Boodey's]
It has been suggested that she was daughter of David & Abigail (BOODY) DREW of Durham. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Olive Drew was born 3 Jun 1742. She married Rev Joseph 3 Boody. Stackpole, Hist Durham NH, 1913, 2/31:

"Tradition says that Zechariah Boody came over in a French ship and deserted it in Boston. He had wife, Elizabeth, who was baptized by the Rev. Hugh Adams, 31 March 1716/7. He died about 1755. [Cf. Boody Genealogy.]"

Children: Elizabeth, Charity, Mary, Sarah, Azariah, Hannah, Abigail, Kezia, and Betsey.

"Azariah Boodey, born 15 Aug. 1720, lived in Madbury. He married Bridget Bushbie and died, 26 Feb. 1803. She died in Barrington 30 July 1785, aged 70."

Children: (Rev.) Robert, Zechariah, John, Molly, (Rev.) Joseph, Sarah, Hannah, Azariah, and Betsey.

"Rev. Joseph b. 16 May 1752; m. Olive Drew, b. 3 June 1742."

Stackpole does not show a Joseph married to an Olive or with a daughter named Olive.
