The following rather unique document is recorded in the public records of Essex County, Salem, Mass.
"I, Lydia Edwards of Haverhill, aged 73 years, Do testifie and say that I very well knew one Adam Draper of Haverhill and I lived in his house and I well remember a path or road that was called Thenod's Road or path and this twenty third day of November one thousand seven hundred and fifty six I have viewed where said Thenod's path or Road run, and it runs from the little River in Thenod's Meadow, then called, up in a valley between two hills and so through the orchard now owned by Joseph Grele (as I suppose) which is to the south westard of Paty's land and I remember well that sometimes people used to hale wood through Paty's land now so called but that was not called Thenod's Road or path, but I am very sure the other road or path as above described was called Thenod's Road or Thenod's path.
