He had five or six daughters and three sons: Samuel, Moses and Robert. The last named was born in 1774, and died in 1844. He married Jane Black, a daughter of Robert Black, and became the father of thirteen children: Robert, James, John, Hugh, Andrew, Moses, William, Thomas, Harvey, Rankin, Samuel R., Jane (Mrs. Irvin) and Hannah (Mrs. David Black). Samuel R., the eleventh son, was born in 1803, and married Miss Georgeanne Yeagle, who bore him four children: Martha (Mrs. Samuel McCauley), Robert J., John W. and Edwin N. He was a farmer and had 400 acres of land near Troy, Jessamine County. In 1845 he was elected elder in the South Presbyterian Church, and retained his office for over thirty-nine years, or until his death, November 21, 1884. His son, Edwin N. GUYN, was born October 3, 1840, and was reared on the homestead. In 1862 he enlisted in Company H., Eighth Kentucky Cavalry, of Morgan's command, and served until the close of the war, taking partin every fight in which his brigade was engaged.
