* The Davies-Guttormsen, Guyer-Campbell Family Home Page*

Updated September 6, 2000

I am currently researching my paternal lines: DAVIES and THOMAS from Pontypool, Monmouthshire, Wales and GUTTORMSEN and MADSEN from Skedsmo, Fet, and Oslo Norway. Briefly, these are the individuals I am seeking information about:

Davies ancestors: Rosser, b. abt 1780 in Talgarth, Breconshire, Wales married Margaret LLOYD, b. abt 1784 in Llanhilleth, Monmouthshire, Wales. Their children were: Charles, married Kerenappuch RICHARDS; Ann, married William MORGAN; Miles, married (1) Ann THOMAS, (2) Mary BRAYLEY Jones; John, married Elizabeth Davies (?); David, Married Jane ???; Mary; Rachel, married (?) William LEWIS; Margaret, married John MARTIN; Rosser. The three children of Miles and Ann emigrated in 1850 with their maternal grandparents, John and Rachel Thomas. They settled in Tallmadge, Summit Co., OH. Related surnames include: RICHARDS, ELLIS, KRYDER, ROBERTS.

Guttormsen ancestors: Guttorm OLSEN, b. abt 1787 in Norway, married Diis KNUDSDATTER, b. abt 1790 in Norway. Their children were: Nils Carl, married Anne Dorthea PAULSDATTER; Lars, married Maren NIELSEN; Erik; Anne Marie. Nils Carl and Anne Dorthea had three children: Dina Gurina; Carl Johan, married Matilda ???; Peter Emil, married Amalie Pauline MADSEN. Peter Emil emigrated with his wife and two children in 1882. They settled in Tallmadge, Summit Co., OH. Related surnames include: ALVSEN, AUGUSTINIUSSEN,NILSEN.

My maternal lines descend from John GUYER, believed to be from Switzerland, whose son Adam married Barbara SHELLY. The Guyers moved into the area of Morrison's Cove, Bedford & Blair Counties, PA in the early 1800's. Related surnames include: ZIMMERMAN, METZGER. The CAMPBELL lines descend from Robert CAMPBELL who emigrated abt 1746 from Ireland; he married Jane Campbell (no relation) and they eventually settled in the Kishacoquillas Valley (now Mifflin Co). In the mid-1800's, members of this family migrated to Bedford Co.,PA. Related surnames include: OLIVER, PRICE, WOLFE.

All information and suggestions received will be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information I have.

HINTS: (1) For Welsh research, join the Family History Society in the county your ancestors lived in.
(2) The Clan Campbell Society, NA is a wonderful resourse for information regarding your Campbell ancestors.
(3) There are marvelously informative historical records available in Norway; however, unless you can read Norwegian, hire a local researcher!
