Family information is very limited. Twins Harrison (presumably named after maternal grandfather) and Barnett Guthrey are documented on family trees as the earliest children of William and Polly, however I have not found any actual documentation. There is mention on various websites about a Family Bible Record. Does anyone have a copy? It may provide some evidence. Both boys died young prior to 10 years of age per the sites. One family tree lists their death date the same as their birth date on 15 October 1809.
READING and RESOURCES
Nothing specific to the twins. We need that Family Bible Record.
WEBSITE: GAGenWeb – Oglethorpe County – Harrison Musgrove – Estate and Other Records
An estate distribution for Harrison Musgrove in 1806 provides “Polly Warren Musgrove” with her share totaling $280.00. Since she is listed by her maiden name at that time it is presumed she was still single in 1806.
In 1820, the estate was still being processed. A yearly return of the estate of Harrison Musgrove was reported in Oglethorpe County, GA, which mentions William Guthry. As her husband he would be the legal representative for his wife.
