Do you know anything at all about the two Matherly's who married Sammons in Decatur Co., IN
Susanna married Spencer Sammons, Aug 29, 1832
Elizabeth married James Sammons, May 30, 1850
I also have from another source that a William Matherly married Margaret Sammons. I cannot confirm this. I did not find them in Decatur Co., IN marriage records.
All the census records indicated that Susanna was born in VA and Elizabeth in Indiana. I did not find a Matherly family living in Decatur Co., IN in 1820, 1830 or 1840 census.
Louis Sammons was born about 1802 in NC His wife Margaret Todd was born about 1805 in KY making me think they were married in KY
James Sammons b. 1827 inKY may have been the son of Louis Sammons b. 1802 in NC. He was a couple of entries before Louis in the 1850 census Elizabeth was born 1829 in IN
Spencer Sammons was born about 1805 in KY Susanna (Matherly) was born about1795 in VA Their daughter Susan was born in IN 1835 so they were in IN before then. Looking at their ages and marriage date...I am inclined to think each was married before.
Susanna may have been the mother of Elizabeth and William Matherly.
I would really like to sort these families out. Most of the Matherly's in Indiana seem to be in the Vigo area.
Anything you could give me would help.
