From Virgil Norberg Arrowood, Grandpa Fought On Three Sides, (Gladstone, MI: Birco, 1990),
as cited by Ralph Dean Clark:

In a note about his own family tree, Rev. John H. Ballard, a Free-Will Baptist minister, wrote,
"James Arrowood was born in Pennsylvania and died in North Carolina at Paint Fork, Madison
County, at age 100. His wife,---Bryant, lived to be 102 years of age. " James Arrowood served in
the Revolutionary War in the Battle of Monmouth and in the Southern regions under General
Green and under Francis Marion and at the Battle of King's Mountain. "He owned quite a lot of
land on Paint Fork where it joins into Little Ivy. He had a lot of rowdy boys and had to dispose of
a lot of his land to get his boys out of trouble; therefore the family had very little before he and
his wife died.”’

"Their daughter, Sarah Sallie Arrowood, married Joseph Ballard in Reems Creek Valley,
Buncombe County, N.C."
