UNGROUPED GUTHRIE FAMILIES

Definition: Guthrie families without historical, documented, or genetic proof of a lineal relationship to an established Guthrie Family Group.


ABNER GUTHRIE – of Carteret County, North Carolina
Born 1791-1800 in Carteret County, North Carolina, presumably
Died before 1840 in Carteret County, North Carolina
Spouse: Esther Royal (1790NC-1860NC) m. 12 May 1818 Carteret County, NC
Children: 4 Known
John Wallace (1819), William Henry (1820), Joseph Royal (1822), Abner Parker (1828)

Abner Guthrie > William Henry Guthrie 1820NC-1880NC > Bartlett Guthrie 1865NC-bet.1900-10NC (2xGGF)

Note: The Carteret County, NC are all speculative descendants of Daniel Guthrie & Mary Little. No YDNA testing currently matches any established Guthrie Family Group. In the case of some lineages, such as Abner Guthrie, I find no documentation connecting him back to Daniel & Mary. Some trees list Abner as ‘John Abner’, but I also find no documents listing him by that name. Sources needed.

Notes: TN Researcher Penelope Johnson Allen asserts that Adam Guthrie is a direct descendant of Niall Mac Guthrie, who has reportedly been traced from King Fergus of Connaught through Miles the son of Cobthatch to Gothfrith, the Lord of Breifne. That ancient ancestry may be a bit too distant to trace here. Adam Guthrie came from Ireland in the mid-1700s arriving in Virginia and living in Augusta County and moving to Fincastle County. The latter was dissolved and part became Washington County, North Carolina. He was a resident of the State of Franklin during its brief existence. It was formed in 1784 from Greene, Washington, Sullivan and the western counties of NC. In 1793, Adam Guthrie received a land grant for 123 acres along the north bank of the French Broad River in old Greene County, NC, now Sevier County, TN. About 1809, two of his sons, James and George, removed to Cumberland County, KY prior to Adam’s departure there.

Mistaken Identity #1: This man is sometimes erroneously found attached to GFG9’s Thomas Guthrie & Jean Duncan. They indeed have a son named Adam, but his birth occurred about 20 years after that of this Adam. Their family came from the Orkney Islands of Scotland.

Mistaken Identity #2: Adam is also found attached to the Ungrouped Guthrie Family of James Guthrie & Elizabeth Dunlap, whose only son was named Adam, also born about 20 years after this man. He married Hannah Polke. They also have a connection in Augusta, VA and in Nelson, KY.

ANNA MARIA GUTHRIE – of Kiskiminetas, Armstrong, Pennsylvania

Spouse: George Dunmire (1808-1890) m. about 1843 in Pennsylvania

Family Finder / Autosomal DNA Kits:
Kit B18761

Anna Maria Guthrie 1820PA-1897KS (GGM)

Notes: If Anna Maria Guthrie was living in the same location as her marriage, Kiskiminetas, we can look for Guthrie families living there in the 1840 and 1850 censuses. In 1840, the heads of families are Samuel Gutherey, James Gutherey, and James Gutherey. We’re looking for a household with a daughter about 20 years of age. The second household listing James Gutherey is the only one with a female of approximate age to be Anna Maria. This man has been identified as GFG2A-Branch G’s James Guthrie who married Margaret Dixon. If they are Anna’s parents, she would be the youngest daughter of the household and born 1 year after their last known child. She would fit right in to that family’s dates and location. The Kit owner has at least 2 matches to GFG2A descendants, but most her other matches are to people from Ungrouped Guthrie Families.



ANNIE GUTHRIE – of Genesee County, New York
Born about 1780, location unknown, presumably in New York
Died unknown year, presumably in New York State
Spouse: Meredith Smith (born 1778)
Children: 1 Known
Archibald (1798)
Family Finder / Autosomal DNA Kits:
Kit B105448

Annie Guthrie > Archibald Smith 1798-1864 (4xGGF)

Notes: The 1810 census of Genesee is the first year with census data showing 1 Guthrie household: Nathan Guthrie, MD 1767CT-1820NY of GFG2A-Branch F. Annie was born about 10 years before his children, so is unlikely to belong to his family. GFG2A, GFG6, and GFG were living within the region.



BARTLETT H GUTHRIE – of Virginia, Kentucky, & Illinois
Presumed Parents: William Guthrie & Mary (MNU) of Virginia
Born on 8 October 1788 in Caroline County, Virginia, USA

Notes: The Guthrie families of the Carteret County area are theorized to descend from Daniel Guthrie & Mary Little, however there is very little participation from this very large group in North Carolina. The participants we do have all descend from their son Samuel Guthrie & Sarah Williston. We need some representation from descendants of Abner Guthrie & Esther Royal and others.

Our only YDNA participant from this line matches men of the Willis and Williston surname suggesting that there could be an adoption or paternal event within the line of Samuel Guthrie. We need representation from other direct male Guthrie descendants to provide comparative data.

We do have one potential clue for the Carteret County Guthries. One of our participants descends from James C Guthrie 1803NC-c1850NC & Caroline Guthrie 1809-1868. Caroline’s lineage is traceable back to Daniel & Mary (Little) Guthrie, but James Guthrie’s ancestry is unknown. It is very likely that James and Caroline were cousins as the Carteret County families all seem to have multiple intermarriages with their extended family lines. A YDNA test of James’ direct male descendant has provided a match to Guthrie Family Group 5, which does have Virginia origins. In order to determine if James Guthrie’s results apply to other parts of the Carteret community, we’ll need some participants.
