From The Kentuckians by Janet Holt Giles:
Cabins At Harrod's In Kentucky
"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."
"Jim came down from Harrodstown that way several times, so, in a way we could keep up with what was happening. It was nearly always bad news."
