Mildred GUTHRIE Sloan seeking information on Morning Glory BEAL
GUTHRIE, wife of Robert GUTHRIE Jr.,listed as between 20 and 30 years
of age in 1830 Giles County TN census.  Children were:  Granderson
Graves GUTHRIE, Amanda GUTHRIE Franklin, Caroline GUTHRIE, Thomas
GUTHRIE and Robert Landon GUTHRIE.  Have found no trace of Robert

Morning Glory and Robert Jr. believed to be separated by 1838 or 1840
when Robert Landon was "bound" to a Mr. Newland of Springfield MO
where he lived until he was 18 years old.  Granderson and Robert
Landon migrated to Izard County AR.  Whereabouts of other siblings
unknown.  Morning Glory is rumored to have spent her later years in
Yell County AR and is said to be buried at the foot of Petit Jean
Mountain in Conway County AR.  Will appreciate any help I can get
about Morning Glory, Robert Jr., and their children.
