Guthrie, Chancey Edwin


     This young and enterprising farmer and stockman of the vicinity of Copeland is entitled to representation in the county history on account of his labors for upbuilding and improvement, because he is one of the substantial and reliable man of this section, and because he is possessed of integrity and sound principles.

     Chancey Guthrie was born in Tama county, Iowa, in July 31, 1879, being the son of R. J. and Eliza J. (Poland)   Guthrie, who are mentioned elsewhere in this volume.    While our subject was still young he was   taken   with   his   family   to   Boulder,   Montana, Where he received a good high school education, gradating from that institution in 1897.    Following that he was salesman in a store for two years and then he came to this county.   He at once homesteaded the land where he is now located, one mile north from Copeland.   He has a quarter section, half meadow and the balance upland.    He has an orchard of two hundred and fifty trees and raises considerable stock.

      In 1901 Mr. Guthrie married Miss Anna L., daughter of V. W. and Anna (Siverson) Washburn, mention of whom is made in this volume.

      Mr.  Guthrie  is  fraternally affiliated with the M. W. A. at Porthill and in this as among his fellows generally he stands well.
