This is my Matthews line.

As far as I know this is all correct:

Micajah Mathews was born in 1775 in Edgefield, SC. and died sometime
before July 7, 1856 in Crawford Co., GA. Information on his wife is
unknown at this time. They had a son, George F. Mathews, born in 1800
in Edgefield. He married Elizabeth THOMPSON, daughter of Henry
THOMPSON, on April 23, 1820 in Jones, GA. George and Elizabeth both
died about 1865 in TX. They are buried in Holland Cemetery, Wood Co.,
TX. They had a son, George Walter Mathews who was born in April 1835 in
Crawford, GA. He was married 3 times:

1. First wife unknown married her abt 1854 in Wood, TX. She died abt
1860. Their children were: Mary, b. 4-12-1856; Josephine "Josie", b.
abt 1857 and Julian, b. abt 1860.

2. Second wife was Mary E. ?. In a census record that I found is lists
her as being born in AL. He married her abt 1865. I think that they
were married in Wood TX. Their children were: Emily - 1866; Lewis
1-15-1869--10-8-1883; Ellen-1871; Lillian - 1873; William H.-1877;
George Walter-1882; and Y.A.-11-5-1874--1-3-1875. Lewis, Ellen,
Lillian, William, George and Y.A. were all born in AR.

3. His third wife was Edith A. HALPIN. He married her on 12-1-1895

George Walter died March 11, 1913.

If any of this looks familiar I would love to exchange other information
that I have.

Hope to hear from you soon.
