I am looking for information on Thomas Matthews. (That is such a common name in that era I have found out.) I think his father may be also Thomas or William Matthews. But that is only a guess. My Thomas was born circa 1800 in Virginia. On 13 Aug 1823 he married Maria Magruder in Allegany, Maryland. About 1828 they emigrated to Noble County, Ohio, then on to Washington County, Ohio. They had 3 children born in Maryland and 2 more in Ohio. They had another child who evidently died very young. There children were William P. b.1824, Sarah b.abt.1827, Maria abt.b.1829, Thompson S. b.1835 and John T. abt. 1835.
Maria is said to have died in Washington County in 1874 and Thomas went to Louisiana.
I am looking for Thomas' and Maria's parents and siblings. I would also like to know where each is buried. Maria is connected with Covington Magruder somehow, possibly he is her brother, but I can find no record of Covington's parents either. I am the second great granddaughter of Maria and Thomas. Any information you have that will help me in my quest to find out more about them would be greatly appreciated.
