Virginia, (daughter of George Anderson and Elizabeth ________) d. BEF 1825.
Adam died 1827, Cumberland County, Kentucky. Adam Guthrie was living in
Fincastle County, Virginia in March of 1773 when a law suit was filed
against him by James English. In 1784, George Anderson's will was recorded

Adam Guthrie was living in the Western Territory (East Tennessee) in 1787.
He was a signer of a petition to form a new state in 1787. In 1793, Adam
received a land grant for 123 acres of land on the north bank of the French

The land bordered the land owned by James Hubbard. By 1810, Adam and his
family had moved to Cumberland County, Kentucky. They owned land in the
vicinity of Illwill Creek which is now in Clinton County, Kentucky. Clinton
County was formed from Cumberland County in 1834.
