1856: BIRTH of SON, DAVID J. GUTHRIE
David was reportedly born on 28 Nov 1856, but this would've only been 3 months after his brother James was born. His death date is reported as 16 May 1857. The dates are obviously wrong or there is an error associating him with David & Mary Ellen.

1874: BIRTH of SON, JOSEPH LEE GUTHRIE
Joseph was born in May 1874 in Polk, Oregon, probably in Bridgeport. He seems to have remained a bachelor. Died 9 Sep 1918 in Polk, Oregon.
1874: BIRTH of SON, ODIS M. GUTHRIE
Family trees list his birth as 'about 1874', so there is no indication that he was a twin of Joseph Lee Guthrie. Odis was listed with his parents in the census of 1880, but not in 1900. During that 20-yr period, he either moved out or died. Nothing further is known. No current representative for Odis' line in the DNA Project.
1876: BIRTH of DAUGHTER, MARY E. GUTHRIE
Mary was born Oct 1876 in Polk, Oregon, probably in Bridgeport. She was listed with her parents in the census of 1880 and 1900. Nothing further is known.

Layton is the ancestor of DNA PROJECT representative Douglas Lee Dalton. Layton was born on 1 March 1878, most likely in Bridgeport, Polk, Oregon. He married Lillie Embree in 1902. They were the parents of 2 sons and 1 daughter. Layton died 18 May 1918 in Dallas, Polk, Oregon.
1879: BIRTH of SON, FOREST LEROY GUTHRIE
Forest was born in May of 1879. He was listed with his parents in the censuses of 1880 and 1900. He married Edith (LNU). After his mother, Martha Emeline (Miller) Guthrie died, his father, David Morrow Guthrie, was listed as a member of his household in 1910. 2 known sons. He died 28 Jan 1927. No current DNA Project representative for Forest's line.
1880: CENSUS of BRIDGEPORT, POLK, OREGON
The Guthrie Household: David M. 56 Farmer MO VA VA, Martha E. 50 Keeping House IL IN KY, David A 10 Works on Farm OR MO IL, Odis M 6 OR MO IL, Joseph 5 OR MO IL, Mary E 3 OR MO IL, Amar 2 OR MO IL, Forest L 1 OR MO IL, Thomas D Pheifer (listed as son) 23 Farm Laborer IA MO MO.
Is the listing for Thomas Pheifer as a son acurate? Illegitimate children would account for the 3 extra children David is credited with whom we do not have listed among the 14 known children of his two wives. Thomas was born in Iowa while David was living in Oregon, so unless there was a reason for David to be in Iowa at that time, this might simply be a census error. Note another possible error: The birth location of David's parents is listed as Virginia.
1881: BIRTH of DAUGHTER, MARTHA JANE 'JENNIE' GUTHRIE
Jennie was born on 25 February 1881 in Polk County, Oregon. She was listed with her parents' household in the 1900 Census. She died 24 Feb 1926 in Newberg, Oregon. Nothing further is known.
1883: BIRTH of DAUGHTER, MARY L. GUTHRIE
Mary was born in February of 1883 in Polk County, Oregon. She was listed in her parent's household in the 1900 Census. Is this the same person as Lillie May Guthrie born 20 Feb 1883? Lillie married Clarence Whiteside. They had 2 sons. She died on 13 Dec 1962.
1891: DEATH of WIFE, MARTHA EMELINE (MILLER) GUTHRIE
Martha died on 12 March 1891 in Polk County, Oregon.
1900: CENSUS of FALLS CITY, POLK, OREGON
The Guthrie Household: David M. 76 widowed MO VA VA Farmer, David A 30 OR MO IL Farm Laborer, Joseph 26 OR MO IL Farm Laborer, Mary E 23 OR MO IL, Laton 22 OR MO IL Farm Laborer, Forest L 21 OR MO IL Farm Laboerer, Martha J 19 OR MO IL, Mary L 17 OR MO IL, Mary J Guthrie sister in law 67 TN TN TN, Joseph Bedford servant 68 Michiganx3
Again, the birthplace of David's parents is listed as Virginia.
1910: CENSUS of BRIDGEPORT, POLK, OREGON
The Guthrie Household: Forest 30 Farmer OR MO IL married x6yrs, Edith 23 OR OR OR marriedx6yrs 1 child 1 living, Hubert 3 OR OR OR, David 85 MO VA PA widowed
Now David's father is listed as being born in Virginia and his mother in Pennsylvania.
There seems to be a little confusion by David about his parents' birth locations.
1913: DEATH of DAVID MORROW GUTHRIE
David died in Bridgeport, Polk, Oregon in 1913. He is probably also buried there.
