    History & Achievements :

    James Rodd has a lovely story. To cut it short, his daughter died at Glenroy just out of Lithgow and her lone grave is there beside the river, his wife Judith died a few months later in Sydney and was buried where the Sydney rail station is now.
    He left, with his two sons and died of his wounds in India, his young sons went to Ireland where James jnr married and they were sent to Gibraltar he was sent to Sebastopol and she returned to Ireland pregnant. He Died of his wounds and she chose to travel back to Australia with her son, my great grandfather. So James Rodd's Family are all in Australia Except for the family of his first daughter who had been left in France with her Grandparents.
