I have some additional details if you want to email me, including a brief writeup about the Matthias/Nixons.I'd be very interested in any data you or others have to share on the Matthias family of the 1700s/early 1800s in Pennsylvania.
I have two Howard Matthias's.One is William Howard M. born Phila., 11 Dec. 1872, the grandson of Charles (above) and son of Charles (Jr.).His son is Wilson Howard M. born 1900.
