Robert Guthrie > Catherine Guthrie 1690RI-1769NY

Notes: There are a few theories about Robert Guthrie’s arrival in America including a start as a prisoner from the Battle of Dunbar or Worcester, sold by Cromwell, to the Lynn and Braintree Ironworks. He is noted to have come from Braintree in the first settlement of Block Island, RI in 1662, and at the time been a man of wealth and position. Due to his genetic distance from his living descendants, who all descend from one daughter, it is difficult to obtain confirmatory genetic matches to an established Guthrie Family Group.

SAMUEL GUTHRIE – of Londonderry, Northern Ireland
Born 1809 – Died April 1889 Sheephill, Ballykelly, Londonderry, Ireland

Family Finder / Autosomal DNA Kits:
Kit 234658
Samuel Guthrie > Nancy Guthrie
Kit N7876
Samuel Guthrie > Nancy Guthrie

Notes: Based upon an assessment of the 1831 Census of Derry, Samuel’s father was probably named William Guthrie or Adam Guthrie. Considering that the name of his eldest son is William, it seems more likely that was also the name of his father.

Died about 1823 in Nelson County, Kentucky, USA
Spouse: Samuel Brown (1731-1799) m. about 1756

Notes: Cumberland County, Pennsylvania is a common location for GFG2A – Branch E: Descendants of Robert Guthrie & Bridget Dougherty, however their children born in the 1730s were born in N. Ireland and are fairly well documented. In addition to genetic matches to the Guthrie-Brown line, there are a few to GFG2A, but also to other Ungrouped Guthrie Families.

SYLVANIA ‘SYLVA’ GUTHRIE – Virginia / Alabama / Texas
Born about 1822 in Virginia, USA – Died after 1880 in Texas, USA
Spouse/s: Unknown
Children: 4 Known

Sylvania Guthrie 1822VA-Unk > George Guthrie 1835AL-1911TX (2xGGF)

Notes: Sylvania Guthrie was born into slavery in Virginia about 1822. Her descendants do not possess the Y-DNA of any established Guthrie Family Group, but the family acquired the use of the Guthrie surname, and chose to maintain it after emancipation. Sylva’s son George Guthrie was born in Alabama, and her younger sons in Texas. Based on the locations and other clues, I believe that Sylva and her family were brought to Texas by Rev. James Smith Guthrie & Lethe Burns. These slaves came into the family via inheritance from the Burns side. One of George’s freeborn sons is named Burns Guthrie. The 1850 Slave Schedules show James S Guthrie as the owner of Black Females ages 33 and 6, Black Males ages 13, 8, 4, and 2, and a Mulatto Male aged 6/12. Rev. Guthrie died in 1856. His wife predeceased him by 6 years. It is unclear what happened with Sylva’s family until 1870 when they are found living in Garden Valley, Smith, TX.

Notes: Thomas Guthrie was a house carpenter born in Tennessee. Census records show his middle initial as “Y”. I have not found a source with the full name “Yoner” as of yet. The closest genetic matches with Kit 364845 are to GFG2A-Branch K, which is from the SC/AL area.
