Hello. I am descended from Adam Guthrie and his wife, Mary Anderson. Adam and Mary lived in southwest Virginia (Augusta and Fincastle counties), east Tennessee (Sevier County) and Cumberland County, Kentucky. I am presently searching for the names of the parents of Adam Guthrie. This website is an attempt to share with others what I've learned about my Guthrie family history in my many years of research. I hope my information will be helpful to others in their search for their ancestors. If you have any questions concerning my Guthrie family information, please feel free to contact me. Thanks.

A FEW HISTORICAL NOTES

(CONCERNING THE FAMILY OF ADAM GUTHRIE AND MARY ANDERSON)

 

Mary Anderson, wife of Adam Guthrie, was the daughter of George Anderson and his wife, Elizabeth, of Augusta County, Virginia. Mary Anderson Guthrie was the sister of Margaret Anderson, wife of Colonel Gilbert Christian. The Guthrie and Christian families were very early settlers in east Tennessee. Adam Guthrie's farm was located on the French Broad River in Sevier County, Tennessee. His farm bordered the farm of the well-known Indian fighter, Colonel James Hubbert (Hubbard). Hubbert's wife was Elizabeth Anderson who was probably related to Mary Anderson, wife of Adam Guthrie.
