A picture of a tumbstone with name of Felix Grundy Valentine McGuire is believed to be my great, great grandfather. Location of cemetary unknown.He was born 02/14/1816 & died 02/26/1887.
His son, James McDonald McGuire, born 1848 & died 1887. My grandfather Samuel P. McGuire was born in 1881 & died 1943(in Missouri). My father, Clyde Lloyd McGuire, was born in Missouri, on 11/26/1906
& died 01/26/1992. I, Bobbie Dean McGuire was born in Lebanon,
Missouri 08/18/1932. It is believed that our roots began in Ireland or Scotland, with migration to Tenn.,Kentucky to Missouri. Have been unable to trace my roots farther back than Felix Grundy Valentine McGuire. Any distant relations who may add to this family tree would be appreciated.
03/01/2000 I have recently been advised by a cousin that Felix Grundy Valentine McGuire's grave site was in Graves County Kentucky. The site use to be Mcguire land. Stanford Sisson a great great grand son of Felix, through his second wife, claims the land belonged to either Dick or Felix.
Delitha Johnson was Felix's first wife. I know nothing about her. Felix is a native born in Kentucky or Tennessee. Elijah, the Grandfather, might be an immigrant. The search goes on.
