E: John S Guthrie & Euphemia Jones

ORIGIN THEORIES of GFG1A BRANCH E

John S Guthrie c1815MD – p1880MD & Euphemia Jones
of Worcester County, Maryland, USA

There are a number of Guthrie families living in the area of Worcester County, Maryland that could be related. Two have now been genetically proven to belong to Guthrie Family Group 1A: Branches D and E. It is possible that they share a recent common ancestor. DNA may provide some clues until traditional research can be completed.

There are also a few other Guthrie families in the area. Research and DNA testing are needed to prove whether they descend from the same group.

Family Finder / Autosomal DNA Kits:
Kit B79382
John S Guthrie c1815MD-p1880MD > John James Guthrie 1853MD-1916MD (GGF)

Findings:The YDNA participant matches the genetic profile of GFG1A. He has tested at the Y37 marker level and has 2 mutations compared to Group Mode DNA. DYS392 = 14 (Group Mode 13) matches Kit 846168, which is from GFG1A Branch D, the other Worcester, MD line.

CDYa = 38 (Group Mode 37) is a fast moving marker also shared with Kit 846168 and others within the group.

More advanced Y-DNA testing might show if this participant, like the other Worcester man, shared genetic mutations also found in those GFG1A kits known to descend from James Guthrie & Christian Scott.
