Abt. 1847 Rachel Bailey McGuire, Susan's mother, was standing near the fireplace in the kitchen skimming milk when she was was instantly killed by a bolt of lightening.

Susan Frances McGuire was ten years old at the time of her mother's death. Susan was one the four McGuire children who were placed in the care of relatives. Susan went to live with her maternal grandfather Bailey, while her sister Mary went to live with her paternal aunt, Martha McGuire Blair, whom they called "Aunt Mat" After Grandfather Bailey's death, Susan went to live with the Parker family.

The 1850 census bares out the above information reflecting that Mary was living with her Aunt Mat and the other 3 children with Grandfather Bailey.

From the Tenn. Archives

1855 wb-6-74 (Ma). Said referenced document is a probate for distribution of funds to the minor children of James McGuire after the death of their guardian Henry S. Parker. These minor children were George B., Susan F., David P., and Mary McGuire.

The above document suggest that James McGuire, Susan's father did pass away before 1855 and possible before 1850 at which time the children were residing with other relatives. The above information further confirms the link to the Parker family.

Mary McGuire moved to Texas in 1855 with Aunt Mat while Susan and her Family were to endure the struggles of the Civil War. See more on the families life and times during this period here.

Unfortunately, Susan's brother were both casualties of the War and after 1869 the family moved to Texas to start a new life.
