i. James Harrod b. April 14 1744 North Carolina did not marry Elizabeth McCarty.
The James Herod who married Elizabeth McCarty was born 1765 in North Carolina. He is the son of James Herod born 1738 in Virginia and died 1783 in Tennessee under Mysterious circumstances.
James Herod born 1738 is the son of Thomas Herod/Harrod born 1714 Virginia and Catherine Hunt. This Thomas may be the son of James Harrod and Maria Kent. There is no proof that this is correct.
