Just this last year I met Robert Matheny, he is also into gen. He told me about Hope Plantation. It was in Virginia. He told me, that is where the original Matheny's came to,when they came from France.In the 1700's.but I have not confirmed this.Have you always heard they came from France? or elsewhere?(he also said it is no longer in existance).Please reply.
