I received this information from my GUTHRIE
family line and noticed the
DANIEL name and thought I would pass it along.
None of these DANIEL's are in
my direct line but if anyone has a DANIEL
/GUTHRIE connection please let me
know. I hope this helps someone else.

as prominent citizens at a later day. George

adjoining the old Goodwin Farm.

to 1800 and was one of the earliest magistrates
in the county.

in a very early day and were among the first
