Re: Richard Matthews - Johnson Co. AR 1800s
Just learned that my Mathis line is connected to a Matthews line in Johnson County, AR. The man's name was John Thomas Matthews. He died in Johnson Co., AR in 1870. He was born in 1821 in Matthews Cove, Jackson Co., AR. This connection is YDNA, so it's absolutely a bloodline connection. My Mathis' lived in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, TN. We have Mathis' that did live in Jackson Co., AL. In fact, my dad's grandmother's family was from Jackson County, AL.
