Hi Kathleen, I am also a decendant of John Mathias born in Guntersblum, Germany/France to Joseph and Jeanne Mathis. His youngest son Aurthur Eugene moved to Oklahoma and had children there. His eldest son, Charles Milford is my ggrandfather. His eldest child is Eugene Mathias of Tulare California, my grandfather. His eldest child his Bruce Eugene Mathias b 1952 in Tulare, is my father. His eldest child is me, Brian Charles Mathias born in Santa Cruz California. I saw in my extensive family records that the Sallee branch of the Mathias family had lots of kids. I am extremeley interested in sharing genealogical info!
Sincereley, Brian Mathias, 21, Aptos California p.s The martha j in your post is Martha Jane Calvert
