I am a Matthews by birth. I have a copy of the book about the Matthews of Yadkin County, North Carolina. I have looked up the name you mentioned in your post. I have a list of the Hezekiah Matthews decendants. I am sad to say that there are no dates listed in the book. If you have any dates, I would love to have them to add to the names. It says that this Hezekiah Matthews was called "KY". If this fits any of your information, please let me know. Also in the book is a listing for Hezekiah Matthews, and he was called "ICK".
The one called "KY" married Patty Davis. The one called "ICK" married Rebecca "Becky". Both listings have their children and grandchildren.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply.
Here is what I have. Please add whatever you can to the information. Most of the following info was shared with me by an Axsom researcher.

Hezekiah "Ky" Matthews, Jr. m. Martha "Patty" Davis. He was born 12/6/1821. According to census info he had the following children:
Robert b. c. 1841
Alexander "Sandy" b. c. 1847
Aquilla b. 8/10/1851 Smithtown, Yadkin Co, NC, d. 2/18/1911 OK City, OK Co., OK; m. Mary Jane Axsom 12/13/1875 Brown Co, IN; Mary Jane was the granddaughter of Winnie Matthews and Samuel David Axsom by way of their son Hezekiah Axsom.
Mary M. b. c. 1854
Elizabeth b. c. 1856
Davis b. c. 1859
Henry T. (Thomas?) b. c. 1861

Hezekiah Matthews, Sr. m. Mary Lion(s) 5/2/1804. (He may have also been married to Rachel ?.) Hezekiah, Sr.'s daughter Rebecca married a Hezekiah Matthews ("ICK"?). He may have been a cousin. Do you have any additional info on the relationship of "ICK"?
What can you tell me about Hezekiah Sr?

Hezekiah Sr's children were (according to his will):
*Hezekiah, Jr (b. 12/6/1821)
*Winny (Winnifred, Winnie, m. 12/16/1828 to Samuel David Axsom)

*Both Hezekiah, Jr and Winnie are my lines.
Do you have any addition info on Hezekiah, Jr. or Winnie?

Possible parents for Hezekiah Sr are James Matthis (Matthews) and Winnie Dean. Can you tell me more?

I look forward to hearing from you.
