I don't have an exact birth date for Matthew, but I suspect it was very near 1800. I know his son Thomas was born in 1837, so that would make them both about the right age for the 1860 census. Matthew also had a son named Joseph, but I don't have a birth date for him. I believe he was older than Thomas. Thomas was my gggf. Any other tidbits of info? I'd be happy to share what I have if anyone wants it.
