William belongs to a famous and well documented Harrod line. He married Mary Focht. He is son of Levi Harrod (10 Jun 1901-20 May 1883) and Martha Henry. Levi is son of Levi Harrod (1777-1862) and Rebecca Burge (1780-1866). This Levi is son of Levi Harrod (1750, PA-1825, Knox Co.OH) and Rachel Mills (1752-1834).This Levi was a Revolutionary War veteran and the full brother of the James Harrod who founded Fort Harrod in Kentucky; the Col. William Harrod who was in charge of the Fort at the Falls of the Ohio River (modern Louisville, KY); Samuel Harrod, a famous trapper, scout, and frontiersman serving the French and Spanish in Missouri and elsewhere as well as Britain in his native KY and VA; and younger half-brother to my 6th great-grandfather John Harrod who married Rachel Shepherd. This info and more is from Bernice Swainson's article on the Harrod family published in the Filson Club Quarterly, July 1958, Vol. 132, No. 3, Part 2, page 260.
