The Martha MMatthews age 10 here on the 1881 census is my great grandmother. her middle intial M is for Miriam ,she went by the name Miriam as well. She 1st married robert Russell in Belledune in 1896 he died in 1904,she then remarried his 2nd cousin john Russell in 1906 in Belledune N.B.
So I am leading to believe her father william richard Matthews is the richard Matthews baptized 02,Aug,1846 Saint Michael,Aldershot Hampshire England, that Jackie posted here.
