Thanks for the information on Levi Matherly. He must not be my great great grandfather, as my grandfather served in the civil war in Co H 56th Regiment , IL INF. He did have a son whom he named William Thomas Matherly. A coincidence of Levi's son. Does the T stand For Thomas? On my great grandfathers enlistment he said he was born in Sumner County., TN. I found the 1850 census but only one entry for a Matherly family (Levi). My gr grandfather died in 1933 in Sheridan OR. His death certif listed his mother as no record and his father as William.
