The Descendants of Isaiah Guymon
The #1 indicates the number assigned to the person by Irene Ayre Bauder, when she compiled her book, The Family of John and Mary Wright GUYMON, including their Ancestors, Descendants, & other relatives.
The Guymon name has, in many records been spelled different ways. GAMMON, GIMON, GYMON, GAIMOUNT, and if you are a Guymon, you have seen a few more. There are cases where Isaiah was spelled Isaac. Now there are traditions passed down through generations, that imply that Isaiah had a brother, but that does not fit with the story of Isaiah's father, and is assumed by most to be false.
The traditional story is that Isaiah Guymon's father and his mother, Elizabeth Curry, were coming to America, but his father died on the ship during the voyage. Soon after ariving in Virginia, Elizabeth gave birth to Isaiah Guymon. Isaiah lived with Elizabeth's brother Malcomb Curry, and possibly another brother, Isaiah Curry. However, Isaiah Guymon used the name Isaiah Curry until he was an adult. It has been said that Elizabeth later married a Mr. Goode. There is no proof of this story, but it seems to be the accepted version of his birth.
Below is a link for Isaiah's father, William Guymon, and another version of the story. This version sounds good, given that Isaiah's first child was named William, but again, there is no proof of this version either. Click on the link to read about this optional version.
