Houston Co., AL Mathis'
I've just started researching the Houston County, AL Mathis'. These Mathis started "sorta" in Sampson/Dublin County, NC. They moved to Washington Co., GA, Baker County, GA, Calhoun County, GA before moving to Houston County, AL. A Logan Mathis did lived in Henry Co., AL also.
One daughter was a Keel before marrying into the Mathis family.
What is so interesting is this family comes from the Edmond Mathis of Sampson/Dublin County, NC. Edmond was the son of Ezekial of Wales to Jamestown, VA. Edmond moved to Sampson about 1745. He had 17 children.
If this sounds like it may be your family to you too let me know. We are really working hard on it right now. My brother and a man in NM have come up with matching DNA Y Chromosone. Our line is out of NC to TN. His line is out of Sampson County, NC to Houston and Lee Counties in AL.
