  • Notes 
    • Arod purchased 200 acres of land from his father in 1808. This strip of land was on the east side of land owned by his brother Joshua. Arod died at the relatively young age of 37. He probably died suddenly as there was no will. His wife, Catherine, and two brothers, Joshua and Abel, were administrators of his estate and disposed of his personal property and probably some land to pay his debts. Surprisingly it was not until 1861, the year she died, that action was taken to give Catherine legal title to one third of her husbands property as her "dowry" right. One lot was where she lived on the south side of South Williamston road and the other up on Beals Mountain. Arod's death left his wife with 8 children, three sons and five daughters. The oldest child was 13 and the youngest one year old less five days.
