I am searching for more information on a James Guffey born in NC and later moved to McMinn CO, TN, Married an Elizabeth??? Who was born in N.C.
James Guffey b. ca 1828 in NC married Elizabeth _______, b. ca 1833 in NC
Ch. 1. Franklin Paul b 6 August 1849 In NC? d. 14 Dec. 1924
2. Eliza b. ?
3. William b. ca April 1859
4. Wilson b. 1861 in TN

6. Joeseph b. 1864
7. Thomas b. 1869
8. Samuel b. 14 Nov.1877 d.17 Feb 1952 in McMinn CO, TN(Calhoun)
I found a lot of this info in the 1880 McMinn CO, TN Census
The Franklin Guffey is Great Grandfather. Died in McMinn CO and have not been able to locate his burial, death record say he died in Calhoun, TN(others lived in Athens and Riceville Area).
I know there is a connection between my Guffey line and the other Guffey's in McMinn CO who came from NC.(Such as the George Washington Guffey who moved to TN)I just don't know where the connection lies. Could my james be a decendent of the John Guffey, Sr. line who moved to TN? I have been stuck on this for years and any help would be appreciated.
