Hamilton Matthews family

Looking for the Hamilton Matthews family in Stewart Co. He was married to Nancy Nicholson. They are on the 1840 and 1850 censuses in Stewart. He supposedly dies in 1860, but I cannot find a death or burial. I do not have a death date for her.

The whole family (several children on census in 1860) disappears from the census record in 1870. The ones who were still alive appear in various other places by 1880 census. But i cannot find ONE family member from the 1860 census on an 1870 census anywhere.

They might have been in the lumber, or related, industries.

One daughter was Mary Ann Narcissus Matthews, who married DJ Dossey and went first to Webster Co., then Texas, then Oklahoma, then California before dying in 1927.

Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
