I am looking for Tobitha Matthews, daughter of William Matthews and his second wife, Partheny Watkins. She is listed in the 1850 Cherokee County Census as an 11 year old, living with her widow mother and brothers.
I know folks married earlier then than they do now. With the burning of the courthouse records, I am unaware of any partial/alternate marriage listings for this area. I can't find her in the Matthews Cemetery in Pollard's Bend either. I have located her brothers: David, Larkin and Ezekial. William is still a mystery.
