Notes for DAVID GUTHRIE:
David married Mary Booth and they moved to South Carolina about 1799. He is in Pendleton District in the 1800 Census. This took in the Northwest counties of SC. We find him in Anderson County in the 1840's. He made a Will in January 1841 and died in 1842. He had five sons and six daughters. He willed his estate to his wife for her life time. He gave sons Benjamin and Stephen land; but, to his son Henry he gave $50.00 and son William he gave $30.00. His son Nelson was the administrator, along with Benjamin. In 1859 an attempt to make a final settlement of the Estate of David Guthrie stated that "the heirs of William Guthrie, dec. and the heirs of Henry Guthrie, dec. whose legal representation reside beyond the limits of this state..."
Mr. J.B. Guthrie of Pelzor, South Carolina descends from David and Mary Guthrie. He relates a story told him by older relatives about David and Mary. He went to South Carolina to visit his brother-in-law, Stephen Booth who married his sister Penelope. While he was down there he made preparation to buy a thousand acres of land for $1000.00, then went back to Virginia to get his family, who came down in an ox cart. When they left, his wife's parents cried and said they would never see her again. (Mary was the daughter of John Booth.)
Not long after David and Mary went to South Carolina, Stephen and Penelope (Guthrie) Booth moved to Bedford County, Tennessee. He wanted David to move too; but, David told him he wished he had never left Virginia. David and Mary made a trip back to Virginia on horseback. They left the children with someone else. It took them six months to make the trip. When they returned, one of the smaller children did not know them.

Mary's brother Stephen Booth married David's sister Penelope Guthrie.
