Hello and thanks for your response! I am still trying to find out just who WILLIAM MATCHETT of 1800 to 1875 from Caven Co. Northern Ireland parents were. This is one reason why I am trying to connect the MATCHETT(E) name from France to Ireland. It has been going on 6 years years of research that I have been trying to get obver this "brick wall." If you can think of anything that may help please let me know. Thank you, Frank (Matchett) Springer.
