Sorry, I didn't finish my message.
I come through Josiah Sweet Rusco.
Not sure what the problem is, but we seem to have a difference in dates. Mine could be wrong, I have gotten them from several different sources.
I have Thomas b.1651 in Norwalk, Fairfield, CT, d. 6 Jan 1739, m. Abigail Bouton(could this be right? I've always wondered), b.abt 1651 of Norwalk, Fairfield, CT m.1685
Their children I show the same as yours.

Abigail's parents were Evenezer Bouton b. abt 1620, and Abigail,b.abt 1624

Thomas' parents were John Rusco, b.1623 of Billevica, Essex, England, d.20 Nov 1702 in Norwalk, Fairfield, CT., and Rebecca Beebe, b.11 Aug 1630 on Broughton, N., England, d.abt 1672, prob. Hartford, CT m. 2 Jan 1650

Thomas Rusco, b.1651
Mary Rusco, b.1654
Rebecca Rusco, b.1656
Ruth Rusco, b.1660
Sarah Rusco, b.1660
Mehitabel Rusco, b.1662
John Rusco, b.1664

I show 3 generations back from Rebecca, not sure I can get it all in here. Her parents were John Beebe and Rebecca Ladd, John's parents were John Beebe and Alice, his parents were Alexander Beebe and Elizabeth. I have children and some dates, if you want more maybe it would be easier to send you a gedcom?

I also have William b. 1594 in Billevica, Essex, England, d.1682 in Jamaica, Long Island, New York, married Rebecca, b.abt 1594 in England, d.abt 1635, m.abt 1619

Nathaniel Rusco, b.1620
John Rusco, b.1623
Sarah Rusco, b.1626
Mary Rusco, b.1628
Samuel Rusco, b.1630
William Rusco, b.1634

William's parents were John Rusco b.1554 in England, d.1534
and Hannah b.1554, d. 5 Aug 1634 in Sawbridgeworth, H., England


William Rusco b.1594
Roger Rusco b.abt 1585

I don't recognize any of the names you asked about from the cemetery, but it is interesting to me, there are several Charles, and my grandfather was Charles E. Rusco, born, married, died and buried in Vining, Kansas.

I come through Thomas, Theophilus, Josiah Sweet, Josiah, Benjamin, Josiah, Dudley, and Charles to my father John Howard, to me. I am one of 4 girls, my father had only sisters, and his father was an only child. So I began to think the name was going to die out till I got started in genealogy!
Let me know if this helps, and if you want the rest of the families I mentioned.
