Thomas
Guthridge


 

THOMAS GUTHRIDGE was born in New Jersey in December of 1854 to Mr. and Mrs. John Guthridge. His father worked as a gardener.

When the 1880 Census was taken, John Guthridge was a widower. The family, which included William, younger children John, Deborah, Richard, and Thomas, as well as a niece, Mary, lived at 427 Walnut Street.

The 1900 Census lists him at 412 Cherry Street, living with his wife of 7 years, Lena, and a step-son, George Kates, 22.

William Guthridge was active in local politics in the 1890s. He was appointed Fish and Game Ward by Governor Werts on April 19, 1892. He was again appointed by the State Fish and Game Commission in April of 1895. He was still working in that capacity as late as November of 1907. The City Directory for 1906 states that he lived at 341 Spruce Street. He moved to Audubon shortly after the 1906 Directory was compiled

Thomas Guthridge served as a member of the Camden Police Department in the 1900s and 1910s. 

Thomas Guthridge's wife, Mary Guthridge, became quite active in local politics after women were given the right to vote. Serving on the Camden County Board of Freeholders from Camden's 7th Ward, she was the first woman to take a seat as a Camden County Freeholder, joining that body in 1930 and serving through at least 1931. Brother William Guthridge worked for the State of new jersey as Fish and Game Warden for Camden County from 1892 until his death in 1908. Brother John Guthridge also served for a time with the Camden Police, as a special officer.
