Re: Descendants of Moses MATHEWS VA.to GA.
I am not sure.John Mathews had one son that I know of, William Mathews, b. 1791 Edgefield Dist., SC, d. 1847 Crawford Co., GA.He married Sarah Ann Nutival in 1815, in SC.They had 4 children; Samuel, b. SC, killed in the Mexican War; Nancy Ann, b. SC, married a Patterson; Martha E., b. SC, married Orris Q. S. Harris in Crawford Co., GA,23 Apr 1844; and James Madison, b. 10 Oct 1816, SC, d. 24 Jun 1884, Echo, Dale Co., AL.I am descended further from James and wife Mary Jane Preston's oldest son, William Eldridge Mathews.
It's conceivable that John had more than one child; also that John had other siblings, as well.
I have found in Roberta, Crawford Co., GA, a grouping of Mathews graves.It would seem that families migrated together.
What part of GA do your people come from?
