My earliest recorded ancestor is William
Guthrie - m. Sarah Meador. They had a son John L. Smith Guthrie b. 1834 in Tenn. He
married Minerva Kirby from Arkansas. They
were married in Newton Co. Missouri. Could
this William be the one you have listed from
Scotland???? That would be great!

My great,great,great,great granddad was Robert Guthrie who came from Scotland with his brothers James and John in the early 1700's.
His son William Guthrie married Elizabeth Barnett around Lurgan Township, Cumberland Co., Pa. They then moved to South Carlonia.
Please advise any information on Robert Guthrie's wife, children, burial location, mother, father in Scotland, etc.

Mary. James was the son of James Guthrie B

I don't know if this will be much help, but I think our lines are connected at James B. Guthrie 1660.
My records show that three brothers; Robert, James, and John came to USA from Scotland via Northern Ireland on the ship Lord Dunluce in the early 1700's.
My line runs through Robert.

In looking for a William Guthrie, I found a William Guthrie whose parents were James Guthrie and Miss Bussell,
and a William, whose parents were Robert Guthrie and Miss Darlington. The latter were my relations and I did not
persue the James and Miss Bussell.

I found this information at the Mormon Web Page( There are two postings with almost the same
info. File numbers 450998 and 451000.

Maybe you can fine Sarah in their files. I will also try to see if I can trace her. Your info about James B. 1660
is a great help. I did not know who Robert's father was. Do you have any info as to where in Scotland he lived?

Hi Guys, I hope this information will fill in a few gaps, this is all the info. I have on James. James Guthrie, as I have it, did come in from North Ireland. The first published records of James Guthrie in 1765 shows that he had a farm and was a store keeper and tailor. From tradition, but no official records, he aided the Continental Army at the Battle of the Brandywine. His will is in the possession of a Paul Guthrie, West Chester, Pa.. He married Ann ___? who died in 1807. Both are burried at the old Brandywine Manor Presbyterian Church, now known as "Forks of the Brandywine". His grave is marked. His Daughter Sara married James Antrican, an early settler in Chester County, Pa.. I believe they may have had a daughter named Mary. I'm looking for information on James and Sarah's son William born 1763. This is a younger brother to Sara that married James Antrican. William also had a daughter that he named Sarah who married my ggggrandfather.

Tom, Please see my reply to Wm. Richrad Guthrie. I believe this will help you more than him. I posted it after reading his reply. But it was really for you I think. I hope it helps.
