James Guthrie was the eldest son of John and Nancy Mahala Guthery / Guthrie. He was eight years old at the time of the 1860 census and had attended school that year. His father was a farmer.
Since the family is not found in the Mountain, Washington, Arkansas census, nor at all in 1870, it is impossible to narrow down James Guthrie’s probably date of death.
In 1878, John and Nancy named another newborn son James P. Guthrie, so it is believed that their eldest died before that date.
