      • From the manuscript "John McGuire: Revolutionary Pensioner of Morgan County, Kentucky" compiled by Isabel D. McGuire, wife of John W. McGuire, Jr. of Leawood, Kansas, submitted to the Kennedy Memorial Library in West Liberty, Kentucky, date July 28, 2000.

        Page 177:

        "Who were the brothers of James McGuire, Sr., killed at Blue Licks?,

        The 1770s tax lists of Botetourt County, Virginia (later Greenbrier County, Virginia) are convincing but not absolute proof that James McGuire, Sr., who was killed at the Battle of Blue Licks: John McGuire, Sr.; William McGuire, Sr.; and Cornelius McGuire, Sr. were brothers. A Thomas McGuire who lived a neighbor to William McGuire, Sr., on Silver Creek, Madison County, Kentucky, may or may not be a brother to the four senior McGuires on the above referred to tax lists. John McGuire, Sr., on this tax list was deceased in or before 1780..."

        I had put off entering a lot of McGuire Family history into my genealogy for a while because there has been so much misinformation that has clouded accurate research. There are still many mysteries and unresolved questions in the McGuire history. However, I think that after reviewing the hard work of many earlier genealogists, I am ready to proceed with making certain assumptions regarding the McGuire lineage.

        Early genealogists had to do their research entirely through the examination of first and second-hand documents. Weaving through old tax-lists, military archives, family bibles, wills and census documents while traveling the country to visit actual sites or waiting for months for snail-mail inquiries must have been extremely exhausting and slow. However, this hands-on process may have allowed for a more thorough examination of the data. With thousands of people hooked up to Ancestry.com, Family Search, Rootsweb and others, part-time genealogists can easily enter erroneous data then upload it on to the web so others can see. Without any attempts at verification, it becomes replicated over and over to where the inaccurate data appears in hundreds of places. The misinformation becomes accepted as "family history".

        The researchers I have examined with regard to the McGuire line have done an excellent job of challenging assumptions and speculation. They have sought out documentable evidence to support their entries. J. T. Pieratt of Nicholasville, Kentucky and Henrietta McKinney of Morgan County, Kentucky have been extremely helpful. J. T. had assembled the works of many other researchers including Arch B. Bowman (Booneville, KY), Ruth Eager Moran (Oklahoma) and Lois Tincher Dorsey. Mrs. Isabel D. McGuire (Kansas) submitted a publication in 2000 to the public library in West Liberty, Kentucky as a celebration of her 60th wedding anniversary. That work entitled, "John McGuire: Revolutionary Pensioner of Morgan County, Kentucky" was a great treasure. She credits much of her success in the compilation of McGuire history to the late Elmyra McGuire Royse (Oklahoma) and Eric Passmore White's "The McGuire Genealogy" and others.

        Questions to be Resolved:

        A. James "Blue Lick" McGuire and John McGuire (1756-1837) Are they related? Are they brothers or is John the son of James?

        B. Are there other brothers that can be reasonably connected to either James or John?

        C. Can we identify the parents of either James "Blue Lick" McGuire or John McGuire (1756-1837)?

        D. Who is the father of James McGuire (1794-1863, Morgan County); i.e. who conceives James with Rebecca Jane McGuire?

        E. Who are the other McGuires at the time of the American Revolution and early Kentucky, specifically Capt. John McGuire of Virginia?


        A. James "Blue Lick" McGuire and John McGuire (1756-1837) Are they related? Maybe. There is just no proof at this time.

        There had been an assumption, probably taken from the Connally and Coulter's Kentucky History that James "Blue Lick" McGuire was the son of John McGuire, King of a Province in Ireland. There is no historical proof of that statement.
