2A-C: Elizabeth Guthrie

ELIZABETH GUTHRIE & JOHN MCCABE
of New Castle County, Delaware

ELIZABETH GUTHRIE
Parents: Samuel Guthrie b. 1680-1700 – d.1746DE & Mary (MNU)
Birth: Est.1718-25, Bef.1746 (definitely)
Birth Location: Pennsylvania or Delaware
Marriage: John McCabe, date and location unknown
Death: Bet. 1746-1774
Death Location: Unknown

Notes:
Elizabeth Guthrie was named in her father, Samuel Guthrie’s 1746 will, so we know that she was born by that date. We believe that she was the 5th of 7 children in the family. Her younger brother Samuel married in 1745 making it likely that he was born at least by 1725, with Elizabeth likely arriving a year or two before him.

Her marriage to John McCabe is documented in the 1774 petition to divide their mother, Mary Guthrie’s estate. Her sister Jane Vail, the petitioner, was at that time the oldest surviving member of the family reporting that her brothers Adam, Robert, and Samuel, as well as her sister Elizabeth were all deceased by that date.

It is unknown whether the couple had any children. If so, they are not noted in the petition.
