James Harrod Of Harrodstown

From The Kentuckians:

"I reckon you've heared George Rogers Clark is at Harrodstown.  ...I knowed him in Bouquet's campaign, Ben said.  He's a right good man.  Good soldier...but I'd say he's a mite ambitious."

"Him (Jim Harrod) and his brother had hunted over in the Illinois country for a time, out of Kaskaskia, and had roamed free amongst the Illinois Indians.  They'd trapped and hunted and shipped their furs down the river to the French, on account of the British not allowing any hunting and trapping west of the mountains."
