      Ephraim Guthrie
      JAMES GUTHRIE

      Fri, Nov 26, 2021
      to Stephanie, Andy, Janet, me
      Stephanie thinks the NPE occurred between the father and mother of James Thomas Carter Sr. and that Ephraim Guthrie, son of Cason Guthrie and Dorothy Reeves, grandson of Thomas Guthrie and Mary Cason, was the culprit. Maybe so. I tend to think it was a later occurrence when Martha McCann Carter had no husband and 5 children over about a 16 year period. That brings some other Guthries into play but it remains genetically of the same family. You might save this information to your files for future reference.
