First Generation

1. John1 Arrowood of Burke Co., son of James Arrowood of Maryland, was born in maybe Maryland, March 1, 1763. See his father's family for more information. John died before 1850 at age unknown.(1)

An abstract from Spartanburg District, SC, Deed Book I, p.470-1, Aug 4, 1800 mentions John Lee's land on waters of Pacolate R and Broad R bordering John Arrowood's land on one side and the North Carolina border on another side.(2)

In the summer of 1776, in Rowan County, North Carolina, he entered Captain Elijah Lyons' Company and marched with Colonel Locke's Regiment in General Rutherford's expedition against the Cherokee.

In the 1790 Census, John was listed as a head of household in Morgan District, Lincoln Co, NC.(3) In his household were two women, presumably wife and daughter, and two boys under 16.

Some time in the mid-1790s he moved from Lincoln County to the adjacent Spartanburg District of South Carolina, just across the state line.

In the 1800 Census, John was listed as a head of household in Spartanburg District, SC.(4) He was age 26-44, with a wife of the same age group, a daughter under 10, and one son in each range 0-9, 10-15, and 16+.

A deed of August 4, 1800 mentions John Lee's land in Spartanburg District, South Carolina, on waters of the Pacolate River and Broad River bordering John Arrowood's land on one side and the North Carolina border on another side.(5)

In the 1810 Census, John was listed as a head of household in Burke Co, NC.(6) He and his wife were over age 45, with a young man age 16-25 and two boys under 10. He had left his son James with the land in South Carolina.

In the 1820 Census, John was listed as a head of household in Burke Co, NC.(7) He and his wife were residing with a young man of 16-25 and two boys under 10. Probably this was his son John, who evidently lost his wife at an early age.

In 1832, residing in Burke County, he applied for a pension. Supporting testimony was given by his brother, Zacheriah. In 1833 he was granted $25 to be paid twice a year, plus $100 arrears for the prior two years.
