The purpose of this book

The book was written for my children and grandchildren, for foreign students of our past, present and future acquaintance, and for McCord families who want to know not only about the history of the early McCords who settled in our nation from 1720 onward but also want to know what was the nature of the nation they lived in at that time.

This book is designed to bring to them the truth of these early origins of this nation and of the McCord families.

THE BOOK AND THE WEBSITE

This family history website www.McCordFamilyAssn.com and this book are unique in a number of ways.

The website is one of the few to our knowledge of a family association with an entire website devoted to it.

This book is also one of only a few books in which an entire copyrighted book is published online.

It is also the only one to my knowledge of a family history book published online in its entirety. The book referred to is: The McCord Family of America: The First 150 Years (1720-1870) Volume I.

The book was placed online as the best and easiest method for McCord families to see it in its entirety. Instead of being distributed as a print book in the conventional way through distributors and bookstores, it is being distributed online over the Internet. McCord families can thus have access to it immediately. For the first year, there is no cost to download and print it on one's printer for those desiring a copy for their personal use, not for resale.

BACKGROUND

This book has been in process for many years. It is a history book, far more than a genealogical book about a family, the McCord family. In fact, there is little genealogical data in the book in terms of listing of McCord descendants generation by generation. That information is available through the McCord Family Association.

Instead, the book places in historical context McCord families, especially during the American Revolution and Founding Father period. It shows their association with many of the early key figures of that time and up through the Civil War period, with some data from later periods.

There were McCord contacts and associations with many of the key figures of these early periods in American history, especially since over 60 McCords served in the American Revolution and many were involved in the French and Indian War earlier.

The McCords were not only there when history was being made, they were a part of it.

The book in reality began in 1942-43 when I was living and working in Washington, D.C. and in New York City in intelligence work for the U.S. Government. While off duty in New York City in 1942-43 I would drop into the New York Public Library located in downtown Manhattan just off Broadway and look over their books on American history, of which they have a most valuable collection. I began to be curious about my own ancestors in the early American Revolutionary period so in the late 1950's when I again was in and out of New York City I would stop in again and look over books on the Scotch-Irish.

In Washington where I was living over a 34-year span up until 1976, I would regularly visit the National Archives, the Library of Congress and the DAR Library, all of which were valuable sources of family history information and research.

At the Library of Congress in the 1950's, I ran across my first collection of documents on the McCords, which was about David McCord who I was later to learn was a son of William McCord of Ft. McCord. It reported him going to Kentucky from North Carolina. Attached to the document about him was a document about Johannes McCord of Augusta County, Virginia who emigrated there in the 1730's. Those sparked my interest and I was hooked from that day on about family history.

Shortly thereafter at the DAR Library on 17th Street not far from the White House my research there on the McCords turned up a report from the Rumler family who lived then at Ft. McCord and owned a farm there. It contained reference to Mrs. Jean (Guyte) McCord and her work on the McCord families.

Of course, my curiosity was aroused and I shortly thereafter visited Ft. McCord near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. The Sarah Bossart Rumler family was most gracious and seeing their home and the site of the Fort nearby deeply stirred my interest in family history. Their family home contained in the rear a kitchen originally built by Mrs. Rumler's ancestor of the Bossart family in the late 1700's when the farm was purchased from some of the McCords. The rest of the building was added later.

Mrs. Rumler said that her grandfather pointed out to her on their farm a few feet from their home just where the fort had stood. He had told her that the charred logs of the fort from the April 1756 Indian attack were still there when he was living on the farm in the latter half of the 1800's.

In the 1960's I was then in contact with Mrs. Guyte (Jean) McCord Sr. of Tallahassee, Florida and she was helpful in providing information about my own family history back through Ambrose McCord, grandson of David McCord of Derry, Pennsylvania who was killed by the Indians at his home there in 1758. Also in the 1960'S from the State Archives of Alabama I was able to obtain further information about my McCord ancestors who had lived in Lawrence County, Alabama until 1856. It was in this 1960's period when I had also contact with Paul Jakes of Mississippi, Alenia McCord in Illinois, and a host of other McCords who were researching their McCord ancestry and with whom I exchanged information.

With Alenia McCord I agreed to write a book, in which I would do the narrative first section and she would do the biographical/descendancy list. She had over many years collected information, especially about the Illinois and other McCords who settled in the mid-West, coming from North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

RESEARCH ON THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND FOUNDING FATHER PERIOD

In the 1970's and 1980's I began an in-depth research of the American Revolutionary Period and of the origins of the Bill of Rights First Amendment's religious freedom clause. Over 100,000 documents were reviewed. I wanted my children and grandchildren to know the true history of that period, the history of their nation, their religious faith, and their family.

From the 1960's there had begun a systematic effort in many of the public schools of the nation to downgrade and,by some, to destroy the study and truth of our nation's true history and its origins. Simultaneously, the U.S. Supreme Court from 1947 and 1962 began to re-write and destroy the true origins of our Christian faith and its original place in our public life and schools.

In addition, foreign civilian and military students coming to the U.S. in the 1980's and 1990's would often ask me to tell them about the history of our nation and our Christian faith. They would ask what books to which I could refer them which would tell them the truth about both. I was hard put to come up with texts which could give them a truthful history.

Knowing that this generation is highly visually-oriented I decided to write a such a book with graphics which would give not only our McCord families' history, but would also place those ancestors in the true context of our nation's history, and of the origins and of our Christian faith and religious freedoms and liberties from that period. It would be a history book rather than simply a family book.

However, by personalizing it, and giving it graphics and carefully-researched true history, it was felt that the children and grandchildren, and foreign students, would be more likely to read and study it in detail. And further that it could stimulate their interest in studying and learning more about our true American and religious history.

I could then refer them to additional sources which would give them true and reliable information for supplemental reading. Often the best and most accurate American history writings were those written in the 1800's, before the high school and college 'deconstruction' by American history writers and publishers had set in, particularly in the last half of the Twentieth Century and especially those written beginning in the 1960s.

MY THANKS

All McCords writing on their ancestry in America are indebted to many others who over many years have researched and collected wills, deeds, Bible records and other reliable information. I am one who is so indebted to them.

THE DATABASE

While I have also personally reviewed tens of thousands of family history records such as deeds, wills, and local history records, other McCord researchers like Dr. Tom Hill of East Lansing, Michigan, Don McCord of Columbia, Tennessee, Dr. Symm McCord of Georgia and David McCord of New Mexico and others have done the same. Cumulatively we are fortunate to have a body of information which cannot be found anywhere else in the world about the McCords of America.

MY RESPONSIBILITY

In regard to my personal comments in this book and much of what is written about Patrick Henry and the role of other Americans in the Bill of Rights and Religious Freedom Clauses of the First Amendment, I am solely responsible for those comments. I personally did a substantial amount of research in those fields, some original. It included a detailed review of the 1789 debates in the Continental Congress on the Religious Freedom Clause of the First Amendment, of the origins of that religious freedom, and of the life of Patrick Henry and his family and others who fought for religious freedom in Virginia.

The 1789 U.S. Congressional debates on our religious freedom clause of the First Amendment will appear in Volume II of this book. It is important that we know what was said in the debates and what was not said, since much of it has been distorted and completed misinterpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court in its 1947 and 1962 and later religious freedom decisions.

The religious faiths of our civil and military leaders before, during and after the American Revolution will also be described in Volume II.

Religion was an integral part of their public and political life and in the education of their children and they would not have thought for a moment of removing religion and religious faith from public life or the educational system.

The U.S. Supreme Court has a simple solution to this massive problem they have created by their 1947 and 1962 and later decisions on religion. That is simply to admit that they were wrong in the two early decisions, in 1947 and 1962, which tried to separate and delete the Christian religion from our schools and our public life. The Court can now and should reverse those decisions.

Admitting one was wrong should not be such a problem.

Until they do so, the U.S. Supreme Court merely deepens the massive confusion in the schools and the public on this issue. And the confusion is massive and gets worse by the year with each new interpretation the Court makes on this issue. Even the Court itself cannot explain the inconsistencies of its decisions.

Many of the justices know the original decisions were wrong and in error.

If they do not admit they are wrong and reverse those decisions, a Constitutional Amendment on Religious Freedom is inevitable as it should be.

The Supreme Court decisions referred to have caused an overwhelming breakdown in the moral life of the nation for it gives the students and public figures no standards to go by, while the Bible and Christian teachings do.

So each child is encouraged by far too many of the schools that "if it feels good do it" and to "do what is right in his own eyes." That philosophy has led to high crime, drive-by and other senseless shootings, a breakdown of morality, and the undermining of the respect for family life.

The burden of responsibility and the legacy of the U.S. Supreme Court and the schools in America bear, and have left, from all this is high, literally the destruction of American society, many feel. It has all occurred in one lifetime, since 1947.

My father was a public school teacher for 43 years. I know first-hand what was formerly taught in the schools. It was nothing like what is taught today.

Tuition money for students is not the solution. In my father's time of teaching the per student tuition from taxes probably ranged from $10-$25 per student per year. Today it is approaches $10,000 per student in some areas.

WHAT IS TO BE DONE

The damage which has been done can be reversed but it will take the U.S. Supreme Court or the U.S. Congress to correct it--plus a massive effort by the ministers and churches of America and dedicated Christians to try to restore what has been destroyed by this relatively small handful of people in positions of authority in the Courts and in the public educational system of America, aided and abetted, many believe, by the national media, only 4% of whom ever darken the door of a church regularly. Many of the mainstream media are even admittedly antagonistic towards Christianity and Christians and are deeply biased in their writings against them.


Christ said, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." John 8:32.

What the Courts and the schools have created and perpetuated is propaganda, not the truth. That propaganda has been highly destructive.

It can be reversed but it will take a highly activist Christian population to do it.

The Christian population in this nation of 250 million plus Americans is, by their own statements in polls, 87% of the total population.

If we are not to have a continued rule of this nation by a small minority, totaling less than 2% of the nation's population, who are outside of the mainstream of the national population, Christians will have to assert their right to defend the heritage which has been handed down to them by stating the truth of that heritage which came at great sacrifice from those who brought this nation into being.


About the author

The author, James McCord, grew up in Texas and went to Washington D.C. in March 1942 to work for the U.S. Government. Most of his 35 years thereafter were spent in Washington.

During World War II he was one of only three men who contributed directly to both of the two most secret Counter-Intelligence operations of World War II. Both were highly-productive joint operations with the British.

One operation was against the German Intelligence Service and the other against the Soviet Intelligence Service, working in Washington, D.C.in 1942 and New York City for nearly a year in 1943. The product of the latter joint operation against the Soviet Intelligence Service became vitally  important to the U.S. after World War II. when McCord worked with the product of that work.

.James McCord in 1943-45 had commissioned flight duties in the U.S. Army Air Corps and after the war as a Lt. Colonel he commanded the Air Force element of a Joint Services Reserve Unit with a wartime Intelligence mission.

After World War II he had a full-time career in the intelligence field, receiving the Distinguished Service Award for outstanding performance of duty from an intelligence agency for whom he worked for nearly 20 years, the CIA, and from which he retired. His specialty was the Soviet Intelligence Services about which he was a recognized authority.

While Senior CIA Security Officer in Europe he headed a team which secretly whisked out of Europe and across national borders one of the most significant and controversial KGB officers ever to defect. This was at the time of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the defector was highly wanted by the Warren Commission because of the vital information he possessed.   

James McCord graduated as a civilian from a military war college during the Vietnam War where it was extensively debated by the senior  government officials involved in carrying it out.. .

McCord did a year of post-Masters Degree studies on the government and military of Red China.

He holds a Masters Degree in International Relations and a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration.

His Masters Degree thesis was written on The Sino-Soviet Struggle For Power in Africa.

McCord later taught in the political science department of a college.

In 1971-72 James McCord was Director of Security for President Richard Nixon's Re-election Committee. He was hired with the specific orders to prevent a reoccurrence at the 1973 GOP National Convention of the 1968 violence and bloodshed which had occurred at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in which the anti-war Chicago 7 were indicted and convicted in Federal Court for violence after that Convention.

An Armed Forces Journal issue of the summer of 1974 described James McCord as "The Man Who Broke Watergate...Into It and Wide Open."

McCord became involved in Watergate because of anti-war demonstrators, a faction of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW),  who had threatened violence with guns against the Re-election Committee members at their forthcoming national convention of August 1973.

On July 14, 1972 "six antiwar vets, members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) were indicted.on charges of conspiring to disrupt the Republican National Convention in Miami in August (1973) with bombings and shootings."

Two others were indicted "for the manufacture and possession of a firebomb and with instructing others in the use of explosives," reported the press.

"The conspiracy charges were based on provisions in the Civil Rights Acts of 1968 against crossing state lines to stir disorder, used to convict the Chicago 7 after the 1968 Democratic National Convention (in Chicago).

"According to the indictment four meetings were held April 1-June 24 to plan the disorders, and a variety of weapons were assembled.The government had subpoenaed 27 other VVAW members July 7 (1972)," reported the media.

The VVAW men reportedly were being encouraged by a VVAW staffer with an office at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), according to reports McCord had received. McCord entered the DNC seeking evidence of such encouragement, and in the process gave assistance to the others who were in charge of the Watergate entry, G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt.who were at the Watergate Hotel that night giving the orders.

McCord's disclosures in March 1973 exposed the nine-months' White House cover-up of Watergate. Those disclosures provided the first public information about where Watergate was planned in two meetings in early 1972 and the names of the four men who met to plan it, one of whom was the Attorney General of the United States, John Mitchell, another was a Counsel to the :President, John Dean, and two others were officials of the President's Re-Election Committee, Jeb Magruder and G. Gordon Liddy, its lawyer.

Thereafter in March 1972 White House Counsel called Jeb Magruder, CEO of the President's Re-election Committee and told Magruder "to get Liddy and Hunt's intelligence operation underway." It had been on high center and not going forward until John Mitchell heard of Colson's call through Magruder.

Magruder then visited Mitchell immediately thereafter in Florida. Mitchell then signed off on the Watergate break-in. Mitchell was then Chairman of the President's Committee to Re-elect the President, after just leaving as Attorney General.

Nixon calleld Colson "the trigger man" for Watergate, because of his call to Magruder which put the Watergate break-in underway. Colson claimed not to know what intelligence operation he was talking about when he called Magruder. Few believe that story.

At the time, March 1973 when McCord gave this information to the Senate Watergate Committee in March 1973, John Dean, Counsel to the President was still covering up Watergate and seeking $1 million from President Nixon to keep the other defendants silent and to keep the cover-up going. Nixon is heard in an Oval Office tape telling him he could get the $1 million for Dean.

The weekend after this meeting with Nixon, Dean went up to Camp David to write up a cover story for Nixon, continuing the cover-up.

John Dean during the 9 months cover-up after June 17, 1972 until McCord's disclosures in March 1973 had the federal investigative agencies' effort on Watergate "wired."

Sworn testimony was given in the Watergate hearings that Assistant Attorney General Henry Peterson periodically called John Dean at the White House and told Dean who had been testifying before the Watergate Grand Jury and what they had testified to.

In addition, FBI Director Pat Gray during the 9 months cover-up surreptitiously gave to John Dean 73 FBI investigative reports on their Watergate investigation, including a Summary Report which showed everything the FBI knew about Watergate (and what they did not know).

Working from the Grand Jury reports from Petersen and the FBI reports given Dean on a park bench secretly in Lafayette Park across the street from the White House by FBI Director Pat Gray, Dean kept the White House cover-up going from the White House with full knowledge of what the FBI  knew about the Watergate break-in and what they did not know.

Dean in addition gave the FBI reports to the lawyers for the Committee to Re-Elect the President so they and John Mitchell could read them. So they also could keep the cover-up going with full knowledge of what the federal investigators knew and did not know, including who had testified before the Grand Jury on Watergate.

In addition, FBI Director Pat Gray shortly after June 17, 1972 was given a packet of files of E. Howard Hunt's from his White House safe in Charles Colson's White House office where Hunt had worked and Nixon's aide John Ehrlichman told Gray to "deep six" the files. Over Christmas 1972, FBI Director Gray took Hunt's files to Gray's home in Connecticut and burned them in the fireplace just before the first Watergate trial began in January 1973.

McCord's lawyer F. Lee Bailey was under indictment during this period for Federal Mail Fraud. He worked secretly with John Mitchell to scheme how they could keep McCord from testifying on the witness stand at the January 1973 trial, in exchange for Mitchell getting Bailey off on the Federal Mail Fraud charges. McCord sued Bailey after the Watergate hearings for denying McCord the right to counsel and Bailey settled out of court on these Federal Civil Rights charges just before the trial was to begin.

White House Counsels John Dean and Charles Colson were the principal actors in the White House cover-up.

The first week of the January 1973 trial of the 7 Watergate defendants, Charles Colson, after a meeting with President Nixon,  was responsible for getting 5 of the seven defendants to plead guilty and thus keep silent and not talk about the origins of Watergate, who planned it and where. Colson bragged to Nixon about getting E. Howard Hunt, one of the leaders of the Watergate break-in, to plead guilty and thus remain silent.

John Dean in addition, before and during the first week of the trial and thereafter, kept G. Gordon Liddy silent.

Dean also tried to get James McCord to remain silent with orders not to testify about Watergate before a grand jury and to take money and a promise of a pardon, all of which McCord refused to do.

McCord had told his family immediately after the Watergate break-in that he was going to tell the truth about Watergate but that he was going to have to pick the propitious time for he already saw that the federal prosecutors and FBI Director Pat Gray and others were not really interested in breaking Watergate and finding its White House and CRP origins. Following the January 1973 trial when he saw the two key witnesses in the trial commit perjury, Jeb Magruder, CRP CEO and his assistant, McCord then saw that the knowledge he had about the Watergate's origins was strengthened by their perjury and he went public with the information he had.

After two attempts to give Judge John Sirica a letter about the White House cover-up, Judge Sirica's curiosity got the better of him after refusing McCord's letter the first time, and he took the letter on the second attempt when McCord gave it to the Federal Probation Officer to give to the judge. Sirica received the letter on March 20, 1973 and read it in court on March 23rd. McCord then gave the story to a friend of his in the media about where Watergate was planned and who planned it, and who carried out the White House cover-up. The friend published it in a West Coast newspaper.

McCord's disclosures in March 1973 laid the foundation for the publicly-televised Senate Watergate hearings which began two months later for he named 10 men to the U.S. Senate on March 28, 1973 who could verify the information and disclosures he made as the first key witness in the Senate hearings on that date.

The Senate Committee subsequently called these 10 men for sworn testimony, one of whom was John Dean, Counsel to the President, another was John Mitchell and the other two men who met with Mitchell and Dean, G. Gordon Liddy and the Re-election Committee operating head, Jeb Magruder. Other sources named by McCord worked for the Re-election Committee.

Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein authors of the Watergate book, Deep Throat, claimed they had a secret source who told them all about Watergate and who planned it. This is untrue. That was a clear fabrication and fraud. They have never produced such a source, they never will produce such a source, and they can never produce such a source for he never existed. They had some minor sources in the Federal Prosecutor's office and around the edges of the Re-election Committee but these sources did not know who planned Watergate and who carried out the 9 months cover-up from June 1972 until McCord's disclosures in March 1973..

The top news stories of 1973 were these two stories: who planned Watergate and who carried out the Watergate cover-up and only James McCord first disclosed that information to the public. Woodward and Bernstein had no such source with such information.  Had they had the information they would have published it in theWashington Post but they did not. For over 25 years, Woodward and Bernstein have lived an untruth and join a long line of television and print journalists, primarily left-wing, who fabricate stories and commit fraud for fame and profit.

It is little wonder that the public trusts the print and TV journalists less and less with each passing year. Journalists and their editors rank right at the bottom of the public's list of those professions which they hold in esteem.

(above details of Watergate are from a copyrighted publication by James McCord)

James McCord  is the author of a 1974 book, A Piece of Tape: The Watergate Story, a historical documentary on Watergate.

This online book published online in 1997 about The McCord Family of America: The First 150 Years 1720-1870, is his second history book.

James McCord is writing a third book about an American who was a Soviet spy for 30 years and about whom no book has heretofore been written. The book tells of the history of Soviet Intelligence Services 1917-present and the role this American spy played in that service. It is interesting that journalists were always high priority for recruitment as Soviet agents by the Soviet Intelligence Service to serve their cause. A number of  examples of their successful recruitment will be given in the book, especially of one highly prominent member of the media.

The author has worked 10 years in private industry and has taken Seminary Biblical courses over a 5-year period at extension centers.

James McCord has followed and studied foreign political affairs for the 55 years since 1942.Over a 9-year period, McCord wrote and published a private print  newsletter of political and religious commentary on the domestic and foreign news 

He is married to his wife of nearly 50 years and has three children, two of whom have served in mission service. He has been a Christian since age 12 in 1936.
