      Thomas O'Guin, the grandfather of the subject of
      this sketch, was born in the county, there grew to manhood, married, and
      became a prominent farmer. When the Civil war broke out he cast
      his lot with the Southern Confederacy and entered the army as a
      private soldier. Exposure and hardship incident to military life so
      impaired his health that he died of tuberculosis soon after being dis-
      charged from the service, leaving two sons, the younger of which, Sidney
      L. O'Guin, was born near Whitfield, Hickman county, in April, 1863.
      In 1884, S. L. O'Guin and Sarah Coble were united in marriage in
      Lewis county, Tennessee, though she is a native of Hickman county,
      where she was born in 1856.
