Solomon Mathis/Mathews

Classification: Query
Surnames: Mathis, Mathews, Matthews,
I need help with Solomon Mathis born about 1832-1834 GA

I will start with asking about Meshack Matthews of Bienville Parish, LA

In 1840 I find Meshack Matthews and his son Meshack JR living Claiborne, LA. I assume this is the same Meshack Matthews of 1850 Bienville, LA

1850 United States Federal Census
Western District, Bienville, Louisiana
Name: Meshack Matthews
Age: 63
Estimated birth year: abt 1787
Birth place: Georgia
Gender: Male

Wills: Index of Wills 1850 to 1932; Bienville Parih, La.
Meshack Matthews 07 Jan 1851 Page 7

Dose any one have any information on Meshack Matthews or this Son Meshack JR?

Now about Solomon Mathis. Does anyone have any information on the following man?

Database: Louisiana Land Records--Land Patents
Name Land Office Acres Date
SOLOMON MATHIS NATCHITOCHES 40.21 April 02, 1860
SOLOMON MATHIS NATCHITOCHES 80.42 April 06, 1861

Civil War Service Records
Name: Solomon L. Mathis

I assume the following 1870 family is Solomon L. Mathis’ wife and his son.

Database: 1870 United States Federal Census Bienville, LA
Ella Matthews Born abt 1828 South Carolina White
Soloman Matthews Born abt 1860 Louisiana White

I assume this is the same Solomon Matthews found on the 1870 and 1880 census

To confuse matters I have Solomon also living in Mississippi. The Solomon Mathis of Choctaw Co, MS is the man I truly search for.

Can anyone please help with my search for Solomon Mathis?
