Hello,
My cousin Nelma and I have been working on the Guy Family for years and this is
want we have:
Landon's parents were John Guy and Mary J. Hendry and they were married in
Johnson County in 1852. I don't know why Mary J. was living with John Guy and
his wife Sarah E. but Sarah must have died and John married Mary J.Hendry. Now
Hendry must of been her married name because of the children listed in the 1850
census. John Guy had a twin brother Burrel Guy also listed in the 1850 Johnson
County census,( you will find Landon in the 1880 Watauga Co., census living next
door to Burrel Guy). Also I believe Landon married Sarah Pressnell in Watauga
County in 1874 but the Courthouse buried down around that time and so the
marriage records were destroyed.

I searched for John and Mary Guy for years and last year finally found them in
Wise County VA in the 1860 census and this is how it's listed:
Guy, John age 59 Mechanic born NC
" Mary age 36 Housekpr born TN
" Sarah age 20 TN
" Eliza age 17 TN
" Anna age 15 TN
" Jane age 13 TN
" Landon H. age 6 TN
" Harriet age 4 TN
" William age 2 VA
also living with them was an Isaac Stout age 45 Blacksmith born NC along with
his two small children.

Now about Landon being a Grayson, when Landon made that remark he was an old man
and he was mad, not in his right mind. My Aunts said that he would tell wild
tales all the time. So I don't give it much thought because there is no proof
that his father was a Grayson.

I also believe that John Guy's father was Enoch Guy who was living in Carter
County, TN in the 1840 and 1850 census. Enoch Guy's wife Sarah is listed in the
1830 Carter County census but Enoch and his older sons are not listed and I
believe they were away looking for a better place to live. Enoch is found in
the 1820 Ashe County census and also in the 1810 Iredell County census. In the
1800 Iredell County census Enoch guy is listed has Enoch Gray .

Here are some marriage records for Carter County, TN:
John Guy / Nancy Lineback 2/20/1831 ( the Guy family was living next door to
Nancy she was a widow with a small child according to the 1830 census)

David Guy/ Elizabeth Anendell 6/18/ 1830
Alva Guy/ Cynthia Peeler 2/07/ 1837
Willis Guy/ Elizabeth Peeler 12/25/1830

According to a book about TN in the Civil War the book tells about a David and a
Levi Guy being the sons of an Enoch Guy.

Burrel married a Rebecca Greer. I don't know when or where. I believe that her family tree is well documented and if you go to the Johnson County, TN website you will find her family tree.
