My branch of the Gwaltney family is from near Statesville, NC in a small township called Hiddennite. One thing I have been able to find out about the Gwaltney name is that it is Welsh. If anyone has any information on Charlie Judson Gwaltney, please e-mail me. I am his great granddaughter, and that's as far back as we've been able to trace. He married Cora Belle Troutman (or Trautman). Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

Hello Julie - Do you have a JOHN CLINE GWALTNEY in your line? The family is originally from the Roanoke, VA area and moved on to NC (so I've been told) His father was Z.A. Gwaltney, mother M.L. Gwaltney. He's my g-father. Been searching for 7 years with no luck at all.
Thanks-

Hello, I am a Gwartney, but my ancestors seem to be Gwaltney's. The farthest back I can find is Thomas DOB 1590 from Ireland though this is based in what I've found on Ancestry.com. His son was John, his son was William, his son was Micajah Gwartney is is proven in my line. Anything you have that I can connect to my family tree would be wonderful. Micajah Gwartney DOB is 1750 and he married Elizabeth McGuffy.

Abraham Galtney married Nancy Ann Killian in The Natchez District of pre-territorial Mississippi on 08 Jun 1797. Abraham was born 08 Jun 1770 and Nancy was born about Abt. 1782. Both probably came from Burke Co., NC to Natchez in 1782-1783.

Abraham Galtney (also recorded as Gwaltney, Gaultney) is a son of Benjamin Gwaltney, bn. 1743 VA, died 1785 MS. Benjamin is sometimes called "Etienne (Stephen) Benjamin." He married before 1770 in NC to Hannah Earhart (Erhardt, Airhardt, Airhart), bn. before 1755, and died after 1782 in MS. Benjamin Gwaltney was a carpenter and came to The Natchez District ca. 1782. He was killed while felling a tree near the old courthouse in Natchez, Adams Co., MS.

I would be interested to know if you have this Galtney family in the generations you mentioned.

Regards...
Ed Killian

I see this is a very old message and you've probably found this info by now but on ancestry I found a death certificate for:

John Cline GWALTNEY born Dec 10, 1982 in Virginia, Father Zachary Gwaltney, Mother Mary Lillian Thomas, Wife Opal Foltz. He was a plumber. Died May 10, 1955 at City Memorial Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Buried in Salem Cemetery, May 11, 1955.

This isn't my line of Gwaltneys but I found this while researching. Maybe it is the John Cline Gwaltney you are looking for.
