Hi Lisa!

I ran across this info and thought I would forward it in case you did not have it yet. Since it lists where James' last Will was probated ("His will was probated in Wake Co. 1840 at WB 24, p. 441"), perhaps you could look it up down town or at Olivia Raney Library, if they have those records. Perhaps it lists the name Parham??

7. The line of Revolutionary War soldier JAMES HARWARD -- born 1760 King and Queen Co., VA, and died 1840 Wake Co., NC. His immigrant ancestor is unknown. He married in Wake Co. (1) ROSANAH BARBEE 1781 and (2) RACHEL VELVIN 1828. His will was probated in Wake Co. 1840 at WB 24, p. 441. His name was spelled Harwood on a 1784 deed, Harrod on the 1790 NC census, Harward on his will, and both Harward and Harwood on his pension application. See the late Betty Harwood's homepage for a link to this line.
