Notes: Walter Guthrie was born in Montrose, Angus, Scotland. He was a merchant who settled in Stockholm, Sweden in 1614. They may have had other children. I have not successfully traced their line. Our participant is a Guthrie descendant from Sweden.

William Guthrie > Elizabeth Guthrie 1718-1772 > Charles Chowning 1739-1817 (5xGGF)

Notes: This is probably a GFG1A lineage. The connection to Christchurch Parish, Middlesex, VA makes a strong case. The project also has a match for GFG1A to the descendants of William Guthrie & Mary Magdalene Roarke. William is potentially the son of William Guthrie & Frances Wilbourn. To prove the generational connections we need a male Guthrie who directly descends from one of William’s other sons: Benjamin, John, or Samuel for comparative testing.

William M Guthrie 1812SC-1883TN > Martin Luther Guthrie 1843-1921 (2xGGF)

Notes: William M Guthrie is designated as a Thickety Creek Guthrie. He is found living in that region with other Guthrie families which are likely related. He was the administrator of the Frederick Guthrie estate. Frederick was born in 1763, so William could potentially be the youngest son of the family.
