I was also given Sarah C. Seay's birthdate as 27 Mar 1777, I believe this is wrong. I think it should be 1787, I think someone misread the bible record, it being old and faded.
I have a copy of her father giving his permission for her to marry William McGuffin. This would mean she was under age at the time of their marriage, 1 Feb 1804. If she was born 1787, she would have been 17 yrs. old and would have needed permision. Also in the 1830 Franklin Co. VA census, she is listed as 40-50, this would make her born between 1780-1790.
I come through William & Sarah's son Robert Fenton McGuffin.
I have information on Sarah's parents, grandparents and g-grandparents, if you are interested in any of this let me know.
Has anyone been able to document that Joseph McGuffin is the father of William Levi McGuffin?
Somewhere along the line I have been given the following spellings for the McGuffin name; Scotch spelling--MacDhubhsithe Irish spelling---MagDuibfinn U.S. & British---McGuffin
The McGuffin name is listed under the Scottish Clan of "McFie".
