I am trying to make a connection between James Harrod, who established the first town in Kentucky, b. 1746 and my James Herod, b. 1804 TN.My James married Hannah Ratliff. From several things I have read, I think James Harrod was the half brother of Thomas Harrod, both sons of John Harrod, b. 1700 Eng.Is this Thomas the father of James Herod, b. 1765 NC, married to Elizabeth McCarty?Any help would be appreciated.
