C: John Franklin Guthrie & Mary Swoap

ORIGIN THEORIES for GFG11 – BRANCH C

John Franklin Guthrie 1802AL-1858TX & Mary Swoap
of Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas, USA

Just like the other branches of Guthrie Family Group 11, descendants of John Franklin Guthrie & Mary Swoap match the same genetic profile that appears to originate with the Ballew/Ballou surname. It is likely that John is a descendant of Branch A’s George Guthrie & Mary Young or a collateral line that is closely related.

A clue to John Franklin Guthrie’s origins may come from his wife’s family. John and Mary married in Tennessee. Her father, George Swoap, appears to be enumerated in the 1820 Census of Franklin County, TN. Typically, the groom is living in or near the same location as the bride, so it is possible that John and his family were living in the area about 1822 when the marriage occurred.

There are 2 Guthrie families living in Franklin County, TN during 1820.

Family #1: James Guthrie Household
1 – Male – 45 and over (Before 1776)
1 – Female – 26-44 (1776-1794)
1 – Male – 16-25 fits subset of 1 – Male – 16-18 (1802-1804)
2 – Females – 16-25 (1795-1804)
2 – Males – 10-15 (1805-1810)
1 – Female – 10-15 (1805-1810)
4 – Males – under 10 (1811-1820)
3 – Females – under 10 (1811-1820)
Note: This family has a son who fits John’s age, and has no known GFG association. Potential to be John’s family.

Family #2: Dudley Guthrie Household
1 – Male – 26-44
1 – Female – 26-44
1 – Male 10-15 (1805-1810)
1 – Female 10-15 (1805-1810)
1 – Male under 10 (1811-1820)
2 Persons in Agriculture
Note: Dudley descends from GFG1A. This would not be John’s family.

The 1850 census does list his birth location as Tennessee, however, his tombstone lists Alabama. His family may have assumed his birth was in Alabama if he lived there when his children were still young.

Little seems to be known about Sarah Guthrie. She was born about 1846 in Texas, and was listed on the 1850 census with her parents as a 4 year old. Her mother died in 1855 and father in 1858, so it is possible that she was living with relatives during the 1860 census. No further details found.

Census records indicate that Nancy was born in Alabama about 1836. The year may have been 1835 as the family reportedly moved to Texas in April 1835.

1835: REMOVED to TEXAS

The Daughters of the Republic of Texas Vol 1 includes a short summary of the John Franklin Guthrie family, ancestors of DAR member Mrs Frankie Glaze, 7466. She indicates that the Guthrie family “arrived in Washington County, Texas in April 1835. John was listed as a soldier in the Washington Guards in 1838. On Nov. 13, 1845, he was issued on league and one labor of land situated in Milam County, TX on the waters of Brushy Creek.”

The obituary of son George Washington Guthrie indicates the year of their removal to Texas was 1837.

1836: BATTLE of the ALAMO
San Antonio, Texas – 23 Feb to 6 March 1836

Added here to provide some perspective in the timeline of Texas history. There is no known connection between this Guthrie line and the Alamo.

1836: FORMATION of the REPUBLIC of TEXAS

“The Republic of Texas (Spanish: República de Tejas) was a sovereign state in North America that existed from March 2, 1836, to February 19, 1846. It was bordered by Mexicoto the west and southwest, the Gulf of Mexico to the southeast, the two U.S. states of Louisiana and Arkansas to the east and northeast, and United States territoriesencompassing parts of the current U.S. states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico to the north and west.

The Guthrie family is not found in the 1840 census of Alabama. If the birth locations of Nancy, Minerva and Mary are correct, the family was already in Texas by this date. At the time, Texas was a sovereign republic and not part of the USA.

1842: MARRIAGE of DAUGHTER – ELIZABETH ‘BETTY’ GUTHRIE
Washington County, Republic of Texas on 20 July 1842

Betty Guthrie married Ulysses Wilkerson Boswell, a farmer born in Tennessee.

1846: FORMATION of BURLESON COUNTY, TEXAS

Burleson County, TX

TSHA
“Burleson County, in east central Texas, lies approximately forty-five miles east of the state capital at Austin and is bordered by Milam County on the north, on the east by Robertson and Brazos counties, on the south by Washington County, and on the west by Lee County.” 

“Anglo-American settlement within the bounds of the future Burleson County began some time after the founding of Stephen F. Austin’s first colony in the early 1820s and proceeded very slowly. The Old San Antonio Road was specified as the northern boundary of the colony, yet before the mid-1830s only a handful of settlers had actually taken up residence in the territory south of the road and north of Yegua Creek.” 

Burleson County was formed from Milam and Washington Counties with Caldwell, Texas as the county seat.

1845: US ANNEXATION of the REPUBLIC of TEXAS

1846-1848: THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR

(Wikipedia)
“The Mexican War was an armed conflict between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848. It followed in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas, not formally recognized by the Mexican government, disputing the Treaties of Velasco signed by Mexican caudillo President/General Antonio López de Santa Anna after the Texas Revolution a decade earlier. In 1845, newly elected U.S. President James K. Polk, who saw the annexation of Texas as the first step towards a further expansion of the United States, sent troops to the disputed area and a diplomatic mission to Mexico. After Mexican forces attacked U.S. forces, Polk cited this in his request that Congress declare war.”

“The 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, forced onto the remnant Mexican government, ended the war and enforced the Mexican Cession of the northern territories of Alta California and Santa Fe de Nuevo México to the United States. The U.S. agreed to pay $15 million compensation for the physical damage of the war and assumed $3.25 million of debt already owed earlier by the Mexican government to U.S. citizens. Mexico acknowledged the loss of what became the State of Texas and accepted the Rio Grande as its northern border with the United States.”

1848: MARRIAGE of SON – GEORGE WASHINGTON GUTHRIE
Caldwell, Burleson County, Texas, USA on 18 January 1848

George married Permelia Ann Fokes. They had 3 sons: Joseph Daniel Guthrie (1849), Charles Franklin Guthrie (1851), Thomas A Guthrie (1858), and 4 daughters: Frances A Guthrie (1854), Catherine Elizabeth Guthrie (1856), Permelia Ann Guthrie (1861), and Laura Guthrie (1867). George was a farmer. His obituary reveals that he was also a soldier. George “was with Houston when Santa Anna was captured; rode the borders to keep back invaders in the forties. He joined the Masonic Lodge in 1861 and the Royal Arch degree was conferred on him in 1867.” The obit also tells of a 7th unidentified son whose 34th birthday was the day of George’s death on 10 April 1902.

1848: BIRTH of SON – FRANKLIN ‘FRANK’ GUTHRIE
Burleson County, Texas, USA about July 1848

1848: MARRIAGE of SON – WILLIAM CARPENTER GUTHRIE
Burleson County, Texas, USA on 18 January 1848

This was the first of two marriages for William Carpenter Guthrie. He married Harriet Holcomb on 18 January 1848. They had no children. The 1860 census of Burleson County lists them with two teenage boys in the household, but these are William’s younger brothers, Thomas and Franklin, who apparently lived with him after their father’s death 2 years before. Harriet died in 1860 and William eventually remarried about 7 years later to Elizabeth Caroline Snavely. They had Eula J Guthrie (1869), Naomi Guthrie (1872), and Robert Vernon Guthrie (1876).
