I am searching for the father of my GG-Grandmother Sarah Anne Matthews. I show her in Jackson Parish in the 1880 census married to A.G.B. Womack. Her age then was 28 and she also died that same year. That would place her being born around 1852. We know her mother's name was Martha Eveline Waldrop and I have come across a Martha Waldrop married to a Thomas Matthews in 1848 around the same area. Martha was married to 3 other men and one of them being after her marriage to Thomas. If you have any info that could help It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Searching for family of Hiram Matthews born
about 1770, we think in Virginia. His sons,
born in Virginia were Hezekiah b.1805,
William b.1798, Saylor, Richard, John.
Hezekiah migrated to Indiana, Plainfield area
, and married Katharine Osborne. William
migrated to Missouri around Rolla area. At
least one of the other brothers stayed in Va
until after the Civil War. Anyone have
connections to this family? We are willing
to share info.

John- Thanks for the information. I can't explain it all but I think we are cousins! Moses Jr. and Mary and Truitt had a son William W.(1815-1876) who maried Mary Ann Liles (1820-1884). From this union my gg grandfather Elbert Monroe Matthews(1854-1935)was born. His son Lewis Monroe(1879-1939)married Laura Benson(1886-1973. Their daughter Thelma Matthews(1906-1948) was my grandmother We have the children of Moses, Sr. as : Enos, Moses,Jr., John, Edmond, a dgt married to Marmaduke Williams and another unknown dgt married to a Daniel Williams. We don't have information on the children of Moses Gordon and would like to have names and dates if you have them. WOuld it be possile to get a copy of the information in the family Bible? Do you know anything about the wife, mother or father of Moses,Sr. I can not find that infomation any where. You can e-mail me a ferrellhataway@mindspring. com. Would love to hear from you and share info. Thanks. One more thing, I have Mary Ann and Rhonda's parents as Elijah Truitt and Mary Polk. I found another source listing the mother as Rachel Windham. Can you shed any light on this?
