Guthrie's - 1700's - Penn/ Virginia/ Maryland ???
I'm trying to figure out the father of my Robert Guthrie, 1752-1815 - and just wondering if I can use a professional for some guidance. I figure his father was born probably 1725-1730 (??)

I'm looking for Guthrie/ Guttery veteran researchers who have worked early Pennsylvania, Virginia and/or Maryland.
My Robert Guthrie/Guttery named his first son, William.
Robert's wife's father was William Caldwell - but both fathers could have been named "William."
Robert was living in "that area" of Washington County, Pa - - which was created thru Westmoreland County, PA before that Cumberland County, PA etc.
"That area" was also claimed by Virginia at the same time - hence why I may be looking for early Virginia.
Robert names some of his children very interesting middle names - - (perhaps a clue to his maternal or wife's side of family ?)
* John Allen Guthrie
* James Cunningham Guthrie
* Robert Caldwell Guthrie
* 2 Kirkpatrick brothers and a Kirkpatrick sister marry into Robert Guthrie's family - (William, Mary Ann and John Kirkpatrick.)
* 2 Cunningham sisters also marry into Robert's family as well (ie: Margaret and Jane.)
Other surnames marrying into Robert's family:
* Adam Finley - b. 1760
* Robert Finney
* Timothy Titus
* James Long
* Nancy Turbett/ Torbett
* Elizabeth Auld
* Sallie Parrish
Do these surnames ring a bell ?
