My great,great,great grandfather William Matthews/Mathis may have been born in Wales or England in about 1790. He ended up in the USA in Virginia, and by 1800 was in Georgia. He had sons William H. born 1818, and John R. born 1821 in either South Carolina or Georgia. I don't have their mothers name.I know there were several Matthews brothers that came to the USA way back then. If this looks familiar to anyone please email me. i have alot of information on William H. & John R. that has been proven to be True. Thank you. Frederica Mathis Fox, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA

Hi Cherry it would b brilliant my grandmother Olive Matthews her father was Nicholas Matthews born 1856 .Ithink in Bodmin in Cornwall England .Ino he had a few brothers and sisters.Do you know if you have any relations in England withthe surname MATTHEWS.With regards Sharron
I do not know if I have any in England , but my Granfather;s great grand father John Matthews was born in Glasgow Scotland in the 1700's and came to America his son James was born in 1789 in Glasgow Kentucky , the town was named by John for his birth home, so I am guessing John was about 25 or 30 in 1789 ,no record of his birth date,
