I am looking for any and all info on Allen Mathews and his wife Maria Mathews. Allen was born in Kentucky in about 1817. In 1860 he is listed in the Newton County, Neosho Township records along with his wife and 6 children.
After that I can't find any records for them. He was thought to be part of the border raids on Kansas during the Civil War and they may have changed their names or the spelling.
The children recorded in the 1860 census are George Mathews-23 born in Kentucky John-18 born in Missouri Richard-16 born in Missouri Lydia-13 born in Missouri Eliza-12 Born in Creek Nation Alice-10 Born in Seneca Nation
Thank you in advance for any help. I am researching Allen as he is the brother of the founder of the town I am from.
