I found some info on his wife and children, but I'm looking for names of his sibs,I'm hoping something might be in his obit.
Philip T. Matthews was born March 6, 1822 in Essex Co., VA and died 1907 in Chilicothe, Peoria, Illinois.He married a Minerva E. Moffitt on May 3, 1849 in Chilocothe. There children I have found is Lucy L Matthews Wood, Mary Allena Matthews Mead, John Phillip Matthews and Margaret F. Matthews. Don't know if there is any other children.
Matthews and Phillip I have found are spelled two different ways either with one t or two and the same with the l.
