Presently researching the possibilty that this
Harrison HARROD/HEROD was the son of Richard HARROD
and Elizabeth "Johanna" (ARNOLD). In that case,
Harrison HARROD'S brothers would be Henderson,
Hugh, Hamlet, Holland and a sister, Finetta (HARROD)

I find 1 reference to Hammond "Harrison" HARROD,
several as Harrison HARROD and also, H.H. HARROD.
He is the owner of an empty grave in Indiana
with an inscription of Harrison HEROD.

The following are facts obtained by documentations.
Now, I need to connect my Harrison HARROD to a family!


From the following Census, Harrison's VA
birth can be estimated to have been abt 1808.


Franklin County, KY Marriage Record provides,
Eliza (HARROD) m 20 Oct., 1829 Harrison HARROD

1850 Henry Co. Kentucky Census;

a Tornado leveled and blew Alto off the IN map!

a fire in the Western Union Telegraph Office on

STEWART quickly discovered..preventing disaster...

An unusual amount of sickness still prevails in
this vicinity. The Rev. Thomas Williams and

I believe Harrison migrated to KS after the
1876 death of Mrs. HARROD and joined his
sons, Benjamin, who had migrated to KS abt 1870,
and his son Moses HARROD, who I find in KS by 1873.

Well, read on, the Saga Continues.....

Winfield Daily Courier, Tues Sept 5, 1899
Death of Grandmother HARROD
Lucinda (Stillwell) Hutto, was born in Kentucky
on November 24, 1820. She buried her husband in
Kokomo, Indiana in 1860. Seven children were born
to them, four of whom still survive her.
Later on, she came to Kansas and was married to
Harrison HARROD, who died in 1895. Since then
she has lived with her daughter, Mrs. Ben HARROD,
until her death. In early life she became a
member of the methodist church. The funeral
services were conducted by Rev. T.W. JEFFREY,
Sunday in a most impressive manner and the
body was laid to rest in Union Cemetery.

The Plot Thickens! Evidently, this Lucinda's
daughter, Mary Ann (Hutto) had m to Harrison's
son, Benjamin F. HARROD at Kokomo, IN in 1856.
(2 yrs before Lucinda's 1st hsb Tm J HUTTO died).
