Ann Harrod dreamed that her husband, James Harrod, had run out to aid men attacked by Indians outside the fort; the Indians shot him and when he fell, stooped over and stabbed him. The next day, the Indians did attack three woodcutters outside the fort, and Harrod, disregarding the dream, ran outside to their aid. He shot the nearest Indian, who ran a short distance along a creek and collapsed. Harrod stooped over and stabbed him. He had reversed places from the dream. When he returned, said Ann, "he did not exult but seemed distressed, and said he wished never to kill another of the poor natives, who were defending their fatherland; and that this feeling was forced upon by the rebound of his knife, when he plunged it into the heart of the fallen Indian, who looked up so piteously into his face. He shed a tear when telling me." Quoted in Kathryn Harrod Mason, JAMES HARROD OF KENTUCKY (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1971):147-48.
