Mrs. Sarah A. McCord was born in Franklin Co., KY., June 13, 1818. Her father, James Arnold, was born in the same county, and was a son of John Arnold, who was a native of either VA or KY. His father, James Arnold, Mrs. McCords' great-grandfather, is supposed to have been a native of VA, who became one of the earliest settlers of Kentucky. He purchased a tract of timber land four miles from Frankfort, on the Kentucky River, and established a ferry across that stream, which he managed many years, residing there until his death. Mrs. Sarah McCord's grandfather was reared and married in Kentucky, and remained a resident of that State until 1823. In that year he removed to Putnam County, Ind., and was one of the early settlers of that section of the country. He improved a farm there, on which he resided until his death about 1837.
