I hope that you are still active with this.I have recently come across Laney Harrod and have been researching his immidiate family. I am going to add what you have told about Laney so far.

Please contact me with any family group sheets you may have concerning this part of the Harrod family.

Here is what I had to begin with.

Holland, Faulkner Co., AR 19 August 1914; daughter of James Lewis and

"My" William Harrod (San Jose, CA; Carrier's Personal Unpublished
Manuscript, November 21, 1989) pp.121-122.

Anything else?


(1.3.) James Herrod was born in 1765 North Carolinaand married Elizabeth McCarty. These are my 4th great grandparents. James is the brother of John born 1768. That makes James born 1765 the great uncle of Laney Harrod.
