First Generation

1. William D.1 Arrowood of Buncombe Co, son of James William Arrowood and Sarah Bryan, (#582) was born in probably, Lincoln Co, NC circa 1785.(1) See his father's family for more information.

He married Rachel (Arrowood). (Rachel (Arrowood) is #583.) Rachel was born circa 1800 in North Carolina.

In the 1820 Census, William was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(2) He was age 26-44, with a woman 16-25 and two boys and two girls all under age 10.

In the 1830 Census, William was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(3) He was in his 40s and his wife was in her 30s. The household included a boy and a girl each age 10-14, two boys and a girl age 5-9, and two boys and a girl under 5.

19 Oct 1832 he and John Anderson pledged security for the bond of William G. Anderson, newly appointed constable of Buncombe County.(4)

In the 1840 Census, William was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(5) He was in his 50s, his wife in her 40s, and he had added two or three boys and a girl under 5, and a boy and girl each 5-9. Still there from prior years were two boys 10-14, two boys and a girl 15-19, and a young man and woman each in their 20s - perhaps a married couple who may have had some of the children.

In the Census of 1850, William was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(6)

William D. Arrowood of Buncombe Co and Rachel (Arrowood) had the following children:

Second Generation

2. James2 Arrowood (William D.1) (#1830) was born in maybe, Buncombe Co, NC circa 1817.

He married Sarah (Sally) Buckner. (Sarah (Sally) Buckner is #1831.) Sarah was born circa 1823 in North Carolina. Sarah(11) was the daughter of Benjamin Buckner and Rebecca Harwood.

In the Census of 1850, James was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(12) In the Census of 1860, James was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(13) In the Census of 1870, James was listed as a head of household in Buncombe Co, NC.(14)

The ancestry of this James Arrowood is arguable. His descendant, James Fox Bruhl, who wrote often about this line in the periodical, "Familes of Yancey County," assigned no father to him. Other researchers have proposed that the son of William Arrowood was the James who married Lavicia Hunter.

The latter James has two conflicting bits of circumstantial evidence. He was married in Macon County, in proximity to the alternate father candidate, James Arrowood of Macon County. Favoring his descent from William is the fact that, of the two Jameses, only he and Lavicia named a son "William." Opposing that descent is his age, too young to be one of the first two sons of William, but just right to be James of Macon's second son.

For this present James, the argument is by association. He married a sister of his presumed brother William's wife. He also seems to be the only candidate for one of William Sr.'s two eldest sons, who were living before 1820 (one was gone by 1830).

James Arrowood and Sarah (Sally) Buckner had the following children:
