You descend from the same family of Radford's that I do, just a different branch. I guess that makes us cousins! Below, I am posting what I have on your line through Sarah Elizabeth Radford, who was the daughter of Andrew "Andy" Radford & Elmira Arrowood. She was the great granddaughter of Thomas P Redford/Radford & Sarah "Sallie" Nanney. She is thought to have been the 2nd great granddaughter of Andrew Redford/Radford & Mildred "Millie" Throgmorton, but that is not certain. I have included their information anyway. When you look at Andrew "Andy" Radford & Elmira Arrowood's children, my direct line is through their 4th child, James "Jim" Radford & his wife, Elmira Bruner. The way I have listed the family below is with the oldest generations first down to the youngest. Hope this helps:
Andrew Redford/Radford b: abt. 1771-1776 Henrico Co, VA d: c1810-1812 m: on 18 Aug 1796 in Henrico Co, VA
+Mildred “Millie” Throgmorton/Throckmorton (daughter of Dr. Richard Throgmorton b: before 1743 VA d: & Obedience unknown b: d:) b: abt. 1775-1780 Clarke Co, VA d: Sep 1816.
-Virginia Genealogies by Horace Edwin Hayden, Rena Gray Fazel:
This book documents Mildred Throgmorton, daughter of Dr. Throgmorton of Clarke Co, VA, having married 20 May 1813 in VA to Dr. Cornelius Baldwin b: 1751 Elizabeth, Union Co, NJ d: 1827 Winchester, VA. Mildred died Sep 1816. Mildred was his 2nd wife, his 1st marriage being on 16 Oct 1784 to Mary Briscoe b: 1767 d: 26 Sep 1808. Mary was the daughter of Col. Gerard Briscoe b: d: of VA, formerly of Montgomery Co, MD & Mary Baker b: d: of Annapolis, MD. Dr. Baldwin’s 3rd wife was Susan Pritchard b: d: of Frederick Co, VA. They married on 31 Aug 1819.
Child of Dr Cornelius Baldwin and Mildred Throgmorton was Cornelia Baldwin b: c1814/1815 d: m: William H Mitchell b: d:.
Since Andrew Radford & Mildred Throgmorton had their last child about 1810 & Mildred re-married to Dr. Cornelius Baldwin in 1813, I’m currently running on the assumption that Andrew Radford died at some point around 1810-1812.

-Elmira’s father, John Blue Arrowood’s death records reports he died suddenly at age 55 from an accidental shooting. John Blue Arrowood’s parents were Zachariah Arrowood Sr b: abt. 1768 Lincoln Co, NC or Frederick Co, MD d: between 1833-1840 Burke Co, NC m: on 29 Jan 1786 in Lincoln Co, NC to Elizabeth Commins b: abt. 1768 Lincoln Co, NC d: after 1810 NC. Zachariah was the son of James Arrowood b: 1740 d: 1810 & Elizabeth Betts Turner b: 1747 d:.
-More on Zachariah Arrowood;
In an affidavit given on May 25, 1833, in support of his brother John's application for a Revolutionary War soldier's pension, Zachariah gave his own age as 65. He recalled that he was old enough before the war ended to be placed on the muster roll. Zacariah remembered seeing his brother march off with Captain Lyons to join General Rutherford's expedition. He said that John later had moved to Lincoln County, where he was reported to have volunteered again, but that he, Zachariah, had not gone to Lincoln County until after the war.
In 1790 in the census Zachariah was listed as residing in Morgan District, Lincoln County, NC. In the early years of the 1800s, Zachariah Arrowood was granted land in the Spartanburg District of South Carolina, which lay just across the border from Rutherford and Lincoln Counties in North Carolina. This land, on Buck Creek of the Pacolate River, was near other land owned by a John Arrowood, who may be presumed to have been Zachariah's brother. It appears that all of Zachariah's grant in South Carolina had been sold before 1810.
In the 1810 Census, Zachariah was listed as a head of household in Buncombe County, NC. Zachariah was over age 45; his wife was 26-44, born after 1765 and before 1785. There was one boy each of age 16-25 and 10-15, and two boys and two girls all under age 10.
Thirty years after the Revolution, the War of 1812 gave Zachariah his chance to fight the British. On April 21, 1814, he was enlisted at Rutherford for a term of five years by a Lt. Alexander into the 10Th U.S. Infantry Regiment, commanded by Col. Wellborn. Two enlistment records survive: one gave his age as 40 and his birthplace as Lincoln County, North Carolina; the other said he was 51, born in Frederick County, Maryland. He was described as six feet one half (or one and one half) inches tall, with black hair and eyes and a dark complexion, occupation: farmer.
He was listed on a roster at Wilkesborough on May 31, 1814. The duty roster of Capt. E.J. Leigh's Company reported him present Feb. 16, 1815. A medical roster of Capt. James Reed's Company of U.S. Artillery at Fort Washington on April 30, 1815, had him absent sick at Fredericksburg. Another medical report and invalid report of Capt. H.H. Vallard's Detachment at Fort Washington on July 31, 1815 listed him as "present unfit for service."
His enlistment record mentions a discharge dated Inspector's Office, 4th Military Department, Aug. 26, 1815, and records "Book 563, Lt. Alexander's Co. 10th U.S. Infy, Discharged, Aug. 26, 1815, Rheumatism contracted previous to enlistment." Further, it reports a "Roll dated 1815, Capt. Robt G. Hite's Co. U.S. Arty, Discharged, Sept. 8, 1815, by order Col. Mitchell, -10th U.S. Infy made Arty- Discharged from Capt. E.J. Leigh's Co. 10th Infy at Washington, Sept. 13, 1815. Rheumatism." The enlistment record ends with a note, "See Pension Case." However, Zachariah doesn't appear in the published index of War of 1812 pension applicants.
In the 1820 Census, Zachariah was listed as a head of household in Lincoln County, NC. He was over 45; his wife was age 26-44, born after 1775 and before 1795. There was a boy 18-26, a boy 16-17, a girl 10-15, and three girls and a boy all under 10. The census record is arranged alphabetically, apparently by militia companies. On separated lines within the same company are Eli, Isaac, and Ben Arrowood.
In the 1830 Census, Zachariah was listed as a head of household in Burke County, NC. Zachariah was in his 60s, while his wife was in her 40s. In the household there were a girl 15-19, two girls 10-14, a boy and a girl each 5-9, and two boys and a girl all under age 5. The adjacent line of the census listed his son, Zachariah, age 30-39.
