His KY Birth Record list his name as John E.Benjamin
Guy born to James Guy born in NC and Sarah Housden of
TN. James Guy and Sarah married in Williamson Co TN
18 April 1841.

John Benjamin Guy married Dora Johnson. They had
9 children. The TN obit listed 9 children but, I do not know the names of 9 children.

His middle name was used as D in his obit by his daughter, Ollie Guy Barnes.

We do not know if she was the one that spelled their last name as Guye vs Guy on their headstones. It may have been Ollie's husband, George W Barnes. ? Or an error made
