Robert Musgrove Guthrey was the eldest surviving son of the family. His twin brothers reportedly died in early childhood potentially before the time of Robert’s birth in 1811. According to an obituary published in the Southern Christian Advocate, Robert was born in Greene County, Georgia. His marriage to Mary Jane Hardin took place when he was 24 years old. They settled on a farm in Walker County, Georgia and had a family of six children born between 1836 and 1848. Five years after Mary Jane’s death in 1864, Robert remarried. He was then 58 years old. His wife, Harriet Ann Bradley, was 23 years younger at 35. They added another five children to the family born between 1870 and 1877. Robert died that year on 29 April 1877 in Cassandra, Walker, Georgia due to a fall leaving his widow with five young children. Harriett died in 1888, so her youngest was only about 11 at the time of his mother’s death.

1836GA – 1894GA
Spouse: Elizabeth Frances Lee Thompson

The oldest son of the family is represented in the Guthrie DNA Project with Y-DNA testing by a direct line male descendant. William was born on 2 July 1836 in Walton County, Georgia. He was listed in the 1850 census of Lookout Valley, Walker County, Georgia with his parents and siblings, then 14 years of age. He married there on 9 Nov 1858 to Elizabeth Frances Lee Thompson, a daughter of John Carlisle Lee and his wife Sarah E. Ann McGuffey. She was also a Georgia native having been born at Stone Mountain, DeKalb, Georgia on 6 April 1839. She was 19 at the time of her marriage. They continued to reside in Walker County, Georgia.

During the early years of their marriage, William Guthrey worked as a laborer. During the 1860 census he was working at a flour mill. By 1870 they had settled on a farm in Pond Spring, and he was listed as a farmer. They had nine children born between 1859 and 1879, so many of his children were contemporaries with his youngest half-brothers and sisters. One child is unidentified and may have been an infant who died at birth or early childhood. The 1900 census lists Elizabeth as having had 9 children born. Oddly, it lists only 2 children living, which is not the case. At the time, she had 2 of her daughters living with her, potentially a misunderstanding of the question because all but one of her eight known children were alive at the time.

William Benjamin Guthrey died on 15 June 1894 in Cassandra, Walker, Georgia. He was only 57. His widow Elizabeth died on 22 Jan 1908 in Memphis, Shelby, Tennessee where she had been living with two of her daughters.

1839GA – 1912GA
Spouse: Philemon H. G. McGuffey

Mary Elizabeth Guthrey was born 19 January 1939 in Walker County, Georgia. She was about 17 at the time of her marriage to Philemon H. G. McGuffey in 1856. His parents were native to Scotland and immigrated to America. He was born in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. His middle names seem to vary depending on the Family Tree. Find-a-Grave lists them as Hugh Gordon. They farmed in the area of Pond Springs. During the Civil War, Mary’s husband served as a private in the Third Regiment, Confederate Cavalry. The 1900 census indicates there were 11 children born to Mary, but one died prior to 1900. This is no record of this child, so it is likely to be one who died in infancy or early childhood not captured in the census records. Prior to 1900, they moved to Kensington, also in Walker County. Philemon died there on 25 September 1900 at 72 years of age. Mary lived with some of her younger children until her death on 2 October 1923. They were members of the Methodist Church. Both are buried at Coulter Memorial Cemetery in Cassandra.

Robert Beverly Guthrey was born on 30 March 1842 in Walker County, Georgia. He was 8 years old at the time of the 1850 Census. The family lived in Lookout Valley, Walker County, GA. His father was a farmer. At 18 years old he was still at home on the farm, now in Pond Springs, having attended school that year. In June, Robert Beverly Guthrey enlisted in the 9th Georgia Infantry, Company G, known as the Lafayette Volunteers.

The National Park Service reports the following:
9th Infantry Regiment, organized during the late spring of 1861, contained men from Wilkinson, Walton, Chattooga, Clay, Talbot, Baldwin, Fayette, Brooks, Troup, and Sumter counties. Ordered to Virginia the unit was assigned to General G.T. Anderson’s Brigade and remained under his command for the duration of the war. It fought with the Army of Northern Virginia from the Seven Days’ Battles to Cold Harbor, except when it was with Longstreet at Suffolk, in Georgia, and at Knoxville. The regiment did not arrive in time to take part in the fight at Chickamauga. It was involved in the Petersburg siege south and north of the James River and later the Appomattox Campaign. This unit had 411 effectives in April, 1862, lost 8 killed and 41 wounded during the Seven Days’ Battles, and had 12 killed and 116 wounded at Second Manassas. Its casualties at Gettysburg were more than fifty percent of the 340 engaged. From April 14 to May 6, there were 105 disabled, and from August 1 to December 31, 1864, it lost 63 killed or wounded. The regiment surrendered with 15 officers and 174 men. Its commanders were Colonels Benjamin Beck, E.R. Goulding, Edward F. Hoge, and Richard A. Turnipseed; Lieutenant Colonels John C.L. Mounger, Sr., and John G. Webb; and Majors John W. Arnold and William M. Jones.

Lucinda Jane Guthrey was born in the Spring on 11 March 1844 in Cassandra, Walker, Georgia. She was listed at home with her family at ages 6 and 16 during the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Walker County.

They lived in Fricks Gap, Pond Spring, and Kensington during their lifetimes, all in the same county. George’s main occupation was that of a farmer. He also served the Confederacy as a private in Company B of the 42nd Georgia Infantry. The 1900 census reveals that Lucinda had 10 children, only 6 of whom were still living that year. L J and G C Baker have a shared marker at Coulter Memorial Cemetery in Cassandra. George died on 21 November 1914 and his widow the following year on 24 June 1915.

Spouse: Esther Ernest Ownbey

Robert Musgrove Guthrey’s wife Mary Jane Hardin had died in 1864, and he remarried five years later to Harriett Ann Bradley. Their first child together was named John Lee Guthrey, born 16 January 1870 in Cassandra, Walker, Georgia. His half-brothers and sisters were already adults by this time and living away from the family farm. His parents added to the family in quick succession, but his father Robert died in 1877 when he was only 7 years old. His mother Harriet was listed as the Head of Household during the 1880 census, a widow and mother to five children ages 2 to 10.

John L Guthrey lived and farmed near Newalla from 1894 to 1938 when he moved to Oklahoma City. He married in January of 1899 in Newalla, Oklahoma to Esther Ernest Ownbey. Their two eldest sons, Lee Ernest and Ira Guthrey died during early childhood, as did two of their youngest children, Roy and Chloe Vera. Three daughters and a son lived to produce a legacy of grandchildren and great-grandchildren for the couple. Esther died in 1943. John’s death came on 17 Feb 1957 in Oklahoma City.

1871GA – 1943GA
Marital Status: Unmarried

Martha Iola Guthrey was the eldest of Harriett Ann’s daughters. All of her older half-siblings were living outside of Robert Guthrey’s household at the time, which no doubt gave Ola added responsibilities as she grew up. Her parents added a few more children to the household prior to Robert’s death in 1877 when Ola was only about 5 years old.

Mother Harriett was the head of household during the 1880 census with the five children ages 2 to 10 listed with her. Only eight years later, Harriett died, too. Oldest brother John L Guthrey moved to Oklahoma by 1894, which left Ola as the head of household for her remaining siblings. The 1900 census lists Ola, 27, Rachel 26, and Robert, 22 living at the home farm in Kensington, Walker, Georgia. They were still living there in 1910, although Robert being 32, is now listed as the Head of Household. These three siblings remained single and continued to live and work the family farm.

Ola died on 17 Feb 1943 at 71 years of age. She is buried at Coulter Cemetery.

Spouse: Alice Rowan

Walter Musgrove Guthrey was born on 29 December 1874. He was enumerated with the family as a 5 year old during the 1880 census. His mother was already a widow at that time, Robert having died in 1877. He married Alice Dora Rowan on 21 Jan 1900 in Walker, GA. He worked as a Day Laborer. Their household is listed next door to that of his siblings Ola, Rachel F, and Robert G, who were living on the home farm. The census lists him as renting a home. By 1910, Walter was working as a laborer for the Railroad. On 26 January 1901, the couple was blessed with a son, Charles Weston Guthrey, but the boy died in early infancy. When Walter signed up for the WWI Draft, he was described as being stout, of medium height, with dark hair and brown eyes. By 1920, Walter had stopped his work for the railroad and was now farming. They continued to live on their farm over the next several decades. Alice died in 1949. Walter died at 90 years of age on 1 Dec 1964. He was buried at Singletary Cemetery in Walker County.
