I am searching for parents of my (2nd) great grand father, MARTIN MATHIS (1774-1839). Some researcher have said his father was William. I have listed NEHEMIA MATHIS JR., born 1748 in Litle Egg Harbor N.J.,(married Susan PETTERSON),who died early in life leaving 7 children in the care of their uncle, who took the children and went West. I have no information on Susan, (who may have died during child birth). William WOOL(L)EY (born in 1750), s/o William WOOLEY Sr. and Loretta BROWER, maried Sophia MATHIS (sister of) Nehemia MATHIS Jr. My questions: Are Nehemia MATHIS Jr. and Susan PETERSON, the parents of Martin MATHIS? Is William WOOLEY the uncle that raised the children of Nehemia Jr? Is this why the name WILLIAM is reported by some researchers as the name of the father of MARTIN MATHIS? I have the book "Mathis of Little Egg Harbor N.J.", but it is of no help in this matter. Any help is greatly appreciated.
