NOTES: The existence of Henry Guthrey, son of Thomas, had seemingly been forgotten by researchers who left him off the list of descendants and either redistributed his children to other family members or simply left them dangling in a parentless state. The work of Patrick Hoggard presented here at Guthrie Genealogy in March 2022 on ‘Thomas Guthrey of McMinn County, Tennessee and his Paternal Ancestry‘ provides and in-depth look into this family and associated documentation.
Henry Guthrey’s birth is estimated to be about 1745 in King William County, Virginia. His father, Thomas Guthrey purchased land in Cumberland County in 1851, and the family moved there about that time. Henry married a young woman named Patience, also known as Patsy, whose maiden named remains undiscovered. Their 11 children were born in Cumberland County. The exact date of their marriage is unknown. Probably no earlier than 1766, but likely by 1779 when Henry purchased a 68-acre property from William and Phoebe Richardson. (Deeds, Liber 6 Folio 10). Like most land owners in the area, Henry also owned slaves. In May of 1808, the sheriff of Cumberland County was appointed administrator of the estate of Henry Guthrey (Court Order Book, 1807-1815, p.121) who had died intestate, without a will or designating his own administrator. The sheriff was ordered to sell as much of the estate as necessary to pay any debts owed. An inventory of the estate was recorded on 8 Dec 1808 (Wills, Liber 3, Folio 427). At the time of his death Henry owned 309 acres and 4 slaves: Joe, Simon, Kate, and Chloe.. A Chancery Court Case identified Henry’s wife and children. While the estate was still being settled, Henry’s widow, Patsy Guthrey, died in 1811, requiring the division of her dower portion
CHILD 1: ELIZABETH GUTHREY
1766-82VA – before 1831VA
Spouse: Henry Cox
The birth order of Henry and Patsy’s children is Elizabeth Guthrey requires some educated guesswork based on whether or not they were adults or minors during the deaths of their parents and the chancery court case that followed in 1809. Elizabeth (Guthrey) Cox was already an adult and married by April of 1809. Her husband had died by that date otherwise it would have been his name listed in the legal records as his wife’s representative.
Probable DOB no later than 1788 (1809 minus 21 = 1788).
Years later, in 1831, when her brother Bernard’s estate was being settled, the administrator of Elizabeth Cox’s estate was Francis A. Cox. Any inheritance from Bernard due Elizabeth would go to her children. Francis is a presumed son. There is a Frank Cox listed in the Cumberland County, VA census of 1830, aged 30-39 with a female of the same age range and 1 female of 10-14 in the home. If Elizabeth was 18-25 at Frank’s birth, her estimated birth year would be 1766-1782.
Bernard Guthrey’s petition document (See: Hobbard, Appendix 1: Bernard Guthrey vs. Children of Henry Guthrey, p.91) lists Elizabeth’s husband as Henry Cox. Probate records in Cumberland County for a Henry Cox are found for 18 Feb 1809 – Estate Inventory (FHL 007675921 IMG 219 of 519, Will Book 3 with Inventories and Accounts 1792-1810, Page 418). No info in this record to connect with Elizabeth.

CHILD 2: SARAH ‘SALLIE’ GUTHREY
1776-94VA – Aft.1820
Spouse: Charles Lewis
Salle Guthrey and Charles Lewis were married on 12 December 1807 by Rane Chastain in Cumberland County, Virginia. (Virginia Marriage Records)
The 1820 census lists the household of Charles Lewis of Prince Edward County, Virginia with:
1 Free White Male 26-44
1 Free White Female 26-44
1 Free White Male under 10
1 Free White Female Under 10
1 Free Colored Person: Male under 14
2 Slaves: 1F 14-25; 1 F under 14.
Number Engaged in Manufacturing: 3
In Prince Edward County, Virginia, Charles Lewis, for the natural love and affection he bears toward his two children, John Henry Lewis & Mary Ann Lewis grants a parcel of land in Prince Edward County in James Town known as Lot No. 4. Witnesses: Ann C Guttrey and Sally Guttrey. Recorded Prince Edward County Clerk’s office 20 April 1820.
On 25 July 1822, Charles Lewis conveyed title to a slave girl, Nelsey, with her future increase, to his son, Robert Carter Lewis. Witnessed by William Guthrie, Rebeka Guthrey, and John H Lewis. Recorded Prince Edward County Clerk’s office 25 Aug 1822. (DB 18, p.45)
These types of deeds are frequently made in lieu of a will. Charles Lewis is not found in the 1830 Prince Edward County Census, nor are there any probate records. Sallie appears to be alive in 1820 if she is the witness to the deed. The child Robert Carter Lewis named in the 1822 transfer of ownership could be a child of Sallie’s born between 1820 and 1822, or the free colored person aged under 14 in the 1820 census.
However, we know that Charles Lewis was alive in 1833 when he was named in right of his wife Sally in the letters filed regarding the division of Bernard Guthrey’s estate. The only 1830 Virginia census listings for a Charles Lewis household with a male between 36-54 years old are the ones in Monroe County, Dinwiddle County, Fauquier County, Harrison County, and Spotsylvania County.

CHILD 3: BERNARD GUTHREY
1776-88VA – 1822AL
Spouse: Rebecca Bird
Bernard Guthrey appears to have been the eldest son in the family. The 1820 census placed him in the 20-44 years category estimating his birth range to be 1776-1800. We know that he was an adult at the time he brought suit against his siblings over the division of his father’s estate in 1809, so he would have been over 21 and born prior to 1788. This narrows his birth year range to 1776-1788.
He was a volunteer soldier for the Virginia Militia during the War of 1812 serving as a private in Trueheart’s 1st Regiment. During July of 1813 he received 165 acres of Henry Guthrey’s estate. (Cumberland Deeds Vol 12, Page 314).
His marriage to Rebecca Bird occurred in Cumberland County, Virginia on 21 July 1817. They had two daughters. On 5 January 1818, Bernard sold his 100 acre tract of land to William Guthrey of Buckingham County, Virginia for $805.62, the land being adjacent to William Guthrey Sr in Cumberland County. They remained in Cumberland County, Virginia through the 1820 census: 1M 26-44, 1F 16-25, 2F under 10. 1 Person Engaged in Agriculture. After that year, they moved to Madison County, Alabama.
Bernard’s death came in November of 1822. Both girls and Rebecca died before him. The estate case file can be found at Ancestry. Probate date 14 July 1822. His will devised that the executors divide his estate between his brothers and sisters, with the exception of Thomas Guthrey who was to receive only 20 shillings.
In 1833, letters were filed by the heirs of Bernard Guthrey (his siblings and their representatives), which to some degree helps in the identification of those living.

CHILD 4: ANN GUTHREY
Abt. 1788 – Aft. 1850TN
Spouse: John Wheeler
Online trees have misidentified this woman as a daughter of GFG5’s Henry and Nancy Ann (Shackelford) Guthrie of Nashville, TN. Wrong Henry!
Ann Guthrey married John Wheeler on 23 October 1826 in Cumberland County, Virginia. Ann was not listed as a minor in the 1809 Chancery Case, so she was probably born in 1788 or close to it as the 1850 census lists her as born about 1790. John Wheeler and wife Ann (formerly Guthrey) are named in the 1833 letters filed by the heirs of Bernard Guthrey regarding division of their brother’s estate.
The 1830 Census lists the John Wheeler household in Cumberland County, Virginia:
1M 20-29 and 1F 20-29 (born 1801-1810). This does not match the expected age profile. Either she was left off the list of minors in the chancery case, or she is in the wrong age category here.
By 1837, they had already made their move to Obion County, Tennessee where John Wheeler is found on the Early Tax List. The 1840 census of Obion County, Tennessee shows the John Wheeler household:
1M and 1F 40-49 (born 1791-1800)
1F 10 – 14 (1826-1830), 1M and 1F 5-9 (1831-1835), and 1F under 5 (1836-1840)
Slaves: 1M 24-35, 1M 10-23, 1M under 10
Persons in Agriculture: 3
They were still living in Obion County, Tennessee during the 1850 census:
John Wheeler, 58 (born about 1792) male VA farmer Real Estate 5000 cannot read/write
Ann Wheeler, 60 (born about 1790) female VA
Emily Wheeler 19 (born about 1831) female TN
Ladwiski Wheeler 16 (born about 1834) female TN
John Wheeler 17 (born about 1833) male farmer TN
Neither John nor Ann are found in the 1860 census and are presumed to have died between 1850 and 1860.

CHILD 5: WALKER GUTHREY
1790VA – 1854TN
Spouse 1: Unidentified
Spouse 2: Naoma Sharp
Based on the 1850 census, Walker Guthrey was born in 1790, the same estimate listed for his sister Ann. Unknown if those dates are off by a bit or if they were actually born in the same year or were twins. Walker Guthrey did eventually settle his family in Obion County, Tennessee where Ann and her family were residing.
In his early twenties, Walker Guthrey served in the War of 1812. He worked as a farm laborer in Buckingham County, Virginia, married by 1830 and settled in Montgomery County, TN. During that census year he and his wife are listed as 20-29 with a son of 5-9 and daughter under 5. Their household also included two slaves: 1 female 10-23 ad 1 male under 10. They were still in Montgomery County in 1836 where Walker is found on an Early TN Tax List.
By 1840, the family moved to Obion County, Tennessee. Walker Gutrey’s household consisted of:
1M 50-59 and 1F 40-49
1M 10-14, 1M and 2F 5-9, 1M and 1F under 5
1M Slave 36-54
With 3 persons in Agriculture.
Walker’s first wife died sometime between 1840 and 1849. He married Naoma Sharp on 26 July 1849 in Obion County, Tennessee. They added 2-3 more children to the family. Walker died about 1854 in Obion County, TN. Naoma, who was 32 years his junior, moved with the younger children to New Madrid, MO and were living there during the 1860 census.

CHILD 6: MARTHA GUTHREY
1791-1809VA – 1855VA
Marital Status: Single
Martha Guthrey required a guardian to be assigned at her mother’s death in 1811 indicating that she was still a minor. William Seay was appointed as a guardian to Henry and Martha. James Wilson was appointed as a guardian to Thomas and David. A broad range for her estimated DOB would be 1790-1809, the later date being the months following her father’s death. The 1850 census reveals that Martha Guthrey was still single and living with her brother Henry Guthrey’s family in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Her age was listed as 45, or born about 1805.
Martha Guthrey died on 1855. An inventory and appraisement of her estate was taken on 3 Dec 1855. She owned two slaves: “one negro man Pompey, one woman Rosetta”, in addition to one mahogany bureau, bed, bedstead, & furniture, 1 wash stand, 1 “toylett glass”. The inventory was signed by GW Clibourn, RS Hines, and AF Anderson, and recorded in the Prince Edward County Clerk’s office on 7 Dec 1855.

Marital Status: Single
At the time of his mother’s death in 1811, guardians were assigned to the youngest children. James Wilson was the guardian of David and Thomas Guthrey.
David Guthrey is not found in the records of Cumberland County, Virginia as a Head of Household in the census records, tax records, or marriage records. His exact date of death is unknown. During the 1833 Chancery Case regarding the division of Bernard Guthrey’s estate, it appears that David Guthrey had also died. In a letter dated 13 March 1833, Gulielmus Coleman was listed as the administrator of David Guthrie, dec., a legatee of Bernard Guthrey.

CHILD 8: MARY ‘POLLY’ GUTHREY
1791-1800VA – Aft. 1830
Spouse: James Chenault
Mary (aka Polly) Guthrey was not identified as a minor in the Cumberland Court Records, nor in need of a guardian at the time of her mother’s death in 1811. The letters by the heirs of Bernard Guthrey dated 1831 and 1833 indicate that Polly’s married surname was Chenault. The 1830 census lists ‘Poll Chenault’ as the head of her household indicating that she was likely a widow at the time. There are four others: 1M and 1F 15-19, 1F 10-14, and 1M 5-9.
Probate records identify Polly’s husband as James Chenault who died in 1825. William Guthrey appraised the estate and acted as administrator.
James Chenault – Inventory – 1 March 1825 – Appraisers include William Guthrey
(Cumberland Will Book 8 1824-1832, pp. 66-67, FHL Film 007644345 IMG 341)
James admr account – William Guthrey admr – 23 Feb 1828
(Cumberland Will Book 8 1824-1832, pp. 421-422, FHL Film 007644345 IMG 519-520)
Two marriage records found for men named James Chenault in Cumberland County, Virginia, potentially the same man if widowed with a second marriage.
James Chenault and Sally Barker on 9 May 1811 in Cumberland County, VA
James Chenault and Polly White on 17 Jan 1819 in Cumberland County, VA
The latter would work if Polly Guthrey was a young widow at the time she married Chenault, but no such marriage record found at this time. Based on the marriage dates, the two older children in the 1830 census would most likely have been born to Sally (Barker) Chenault. The youngest three would probably be Polly’s children.
No further marriage or probate records found for Mary ‘Polly’ Chenault.

CHILD 9: THOMAS GUTHREY
1796VA – 1890TN
Spouse: Catherine Cox
For an in-depth look into what is currently known about Thomas Guthrey, son of Henry and Patsy, you should read Patrick Hoggard’s presentation on ‘Thomas Guthrey (1796-1890) of McMinn County, Tennessee, and his Paternal Ancestry‘, which he generously shared with us.
As one of the minor children at the time of his mother’s death, Thomas was assigned a guardian, William Seay. His sister Martha was also assigned to Seay. Their brothers Thomas and David were assigned to James Wilson.
Thomas’ older brother, Bernard Guthrey, had moved to Madison County, Alabama about 1820-1821 prior to his death in 1822. Whether that move drew Thomas to Alabama is unknown, but Bernard divided his estate amongst all of his siblings except Thomas to whom he left only 20 shillings.
On 19 January 1823, Thomas Guthrey married Catherine Cox in Lawrence County, Alabama. They did not remain there very long. The biographical sketch published about their eldest son Charles Henry Guthrey (born in 1823 or 1824) revealed that they moved to McMinn County, Tennessee when he was only a few months old. They settled on farmland near Athens where they raised their children and remained throughout their lives.
Hoggard’s book credits Thomas and Catherine with a set of twins named Elizabeth Sarah and Elizabeth Jane. I find no documentation linking Elizabeth Sarah Guthrey, who married James Madison Harp in 1850 Arkansas, to this family from McMinn County, TN. Census records do indicate that she was born in Tennessee. The 1840 census does have the right number of daughters living at that time, but not in the correct age category. This couple moved to Missouri. More info/evidence needed.
Catherine died on 27 June 1860 at 60 years of age. Thomas lived another thirty years. He was 93 at his death on 27 March 1890. They are buried at the McMahan Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery in Athens, McMinn County, Tennessee.

CHILD 10: NANCY GUTHREY
Abt. 1800 VA – After 1870 VA
Spouse: Gulielmus Coleman Jr (1789-1856)
This is another ‘hot spot’ for family tree errors. Gulielmus Coleman Jr, the son of Guilielmus Coleman Sr and Eleanor Turner, married two women by the name of Nancy Guthrie. Refer to this Guthrie Research Tree link, Hoggard’s Addendum-1, and Mistaken Identities to review the correct data.
This Nancy Guthrey was his second wife. The first marriage took place on 1 July 1812 to the “Widow White”, nee Nancy Ann Guthrey, the daughter of William Guthrey and Rebecca Noel. Therefore, Nancy Ann was yet another granddaughter of Thomas Guthrey and Sarah Oakes, and a cousin to this Nancy Guthrey. Nancy Ann had 1 daughter by her first husband, James White, namely Sarah Howard While, who was later known by the name Sarah W Coleman. Nancy Ann was also the mother to Gulielmus Coleman Jr’s five eldest children: John baptist Coleman, James W Coleman, Virgil Coleman, Ann Rebecca Coleman, and Alexander Gulielmus ‘Elmus’ Coleman. the first wife, Nancy Ann, died between 1822 and 1826.
Due to Henry Guthrey’s absence in many trees, this Nancy Guthrey tended to be left off or mistaken as someone else. The legal documents associated with the family clearly identify Henry’s daughter as the wife of Gulielmus Coleman. Nancy’s marriage to Gulielmus Coleman occurred on 20 March 1826 in Cumberland County, Virginia. They also had five children born between 1827 and 1839. Gulielmus died on 22 October 1856. Nancy was listed as the Head of Household in 1860, and during the 1870 census was living in the home of her son Josiah and family. She died between 1870 and 1880.

CHILD 11: HENRY SIDNEY GUTHREY
1807VA – 1896VA
Spouse 1: Marietta Kaziah Womack
Spouse 2: Mary Agnes Womack
Henry was born about 1807 in Cumberland County, Virginia. Being the youngest of Henry and Patsy’s children, he required a guardian to oversee his physical and legal well-being Both he and his sister Martha were assigned to William Seay.
He was twice married to a pair of Womack women. He married Marietta Kaziah Womack on 11 Jan 1832 in Prince Edward County, Virginia. Marietta was the daughter of James Watson Womack and his wife Sarah Allen. She died at 22 years of age on 13 Feb 1834. Marietta’s father, James, died in 1844 leaving a will in which he bequeathed “To my daughter Mary Etter Womack her heirs & assigns forever I give and bequeath two negroes Lucy and Affa as her portion of my estate.” The eldest known child of Henry Sidney Guthrie is MArietta Womack Guthrie, whose birth year is listed as 1838, which would make her a daughter of Mary rather than Marietta, unless the DOB was off by 4 years. Henry may actually bee the only legal heir of his first wife Marietta K. Womack.
Henry’s second marriage took place on 18 May 1818 in Prince Edward County Virginia to 19-year old Mary Agnes Womack, a daughter of Lillious Dillon Womack and wife Elizabeth Logan. Henry was 30. They continued to live in Prince Edward County, Virginia while raising their family of 7 children.
Hoggard’s work reveals, “Before the war Henry and Mary were quite prosperous. They had 26 slaves in 1840, 31 in 1850, and 27 in 1860. In 1860, Henry declared the value of his real estate to be $11,250 and his personal estate $22,864. The Civil War changed all that. Henry had to borrow heavily during the war, accumulating debts with a variety of creditors, including banks, relatives, merchants, and other individuals.After the war he was unable to repay the debts and the situation was exacerbated because of the collapse in value of Confederate currentcy. In 1866, he was forced to sell all his property, including the house and land on which he and Mary had been living. On the 1870 census, Henry’s personal estate was listed at $1,000, and of course, he had no real estate. After losing his farmland, he went into partnership with an R. B. Thackston running a sawmill.”
Mary died in 1880. Henry was living at the Anderson home in Cumberland County in November 1897. A descendant, Andrew Anderson reports, “At the time the road conditions were so bad that he was buried in the Anderson plot at Cumberland Presbyterian Church instead of at Briery with his wife Mary Agnes Womack Guthrie”, daughter of Lillius Dillon and Elizabeth Logan Womack of Prince Edward County. She was born May 18, 1818 and died in August 1880 in Prince Edward County.”
