This is Andrew Jackson Mathews, born in 1857 in Attala County, Mississippi, son of Wiley Mathews and Sarah Myers Mathews. Wiley and Sarah met and married in Pike County, Alabama in 1847. Wiley is as far back on the Mathews as we can go, as his mother or adopted mother, Rhoda Mathews, was shown as a widow on the 1830 Pike County, Alabama census. Wiley was born between 1817-1825, depending on which census you read, in North Carolina. He and Sarah disappear after the 1880 census in Attala County, Mississippi. No photos or family bible have surfaced for Wiley and Sarah to this date.

This is James Edwin Matthews great grandfather 1857-1924. I thought a Matthews photo might be of more interest for a DNA group. There is a great deal of resemblance to him for another two generations in our family. Since our DNA testing we found the marriage records for two Matthews siblings in Ireland in 1776 and 1782. We feel fortunate to have found these since Matthews went to USA in 1786. Their records said the two Matthews were from Urney Parish, County Tyrone. Their spouses were from Stranorlar Parsh, Co. Donegal (14 miles away) and Strabane Parish, Co. Tyrone very close to Urney. I thought these known locations might stimulate some conversation between Haplop Group R-M269. I am not very well versed in DNA results but I am now trying to learn more. I am the family namesayer. My name is Jeanette Pitcher.
