Does anyone have any information on the Rev.
William G. GUINN (b. 1796), born possibly in Warren County, lived in
Franklin, Grundy and Coffee Counties? He may hav
e lived in the same area all his life, but it looks like he moved due to
county boundary changes. He had a large family and his second wife was
Priscilla Burrows (m. by 1835). It seems he was related to Elisha and
Champion GUINN and possibly Elias GUINN
of Warren Co. My great great grandfather, Elisha GUINN, son of the REV.
Wm. GUINN or son of Champion GUINN married Nancy C. FRANKLIN in the Cowan
district (Franklin Co.) in1846. His son, George D.GUINN was a Methodist
minister like his father. Nancy se
em to have no ties to any of the Franklin families of Franklin County at
that time, unless it would be David FRANKLIN. Any info greatly
appreciated. Will share-have much speculativeinformation on these

lived in Grundy County. Elizabeth was born in TN about 1811 and died
1881-1899. Don't know her husband's given name but I believe she married
before 1828. Reuben married Sarah RICHEY in 1849, raised 7 children in
and moved to CA after 1880. Caroline may have marrie
d FULTS and/or RHEA ca. 1858. William Hardy (or Hardin?) married M.E.
FREEMAN in 1862, Sarah Elizabeth SMITH in 1866 and Bammie (?) after 1884
and died in 1916. I believe Reuben and Wm. both served in the Confederate
Army. Harriet may have married Jess
