I am trying to determine who the parents of Henry and Eve Mattice were, and where they came from!
It is well documented that Henry Mattice (b: Abt 1822, d: May 3, 1877) and Eve Sophia Stata, (b: Mar. 5, 1825, d: Jan. 20, 1890), both of Williamsburg, Ontario, married on Oct 3rd, 1843, witnessed by Levi Ouderkirk & Mary Anne Sullivan. Ontario vital records also show the subsequent birth of their two sons, Reuben (b: Nov 5, 1845) and Levi (b: Jan 18, 1852), and the family is shown in Census reports of 1851, 1861 and 1871.
(Several of the old documents show Mattice spelled with one “T”, i.e: Matice, but most official records use two “T”s.) I would appreciate any information showing Henry’s ancestry … did he, like myself, descend from Hendrick Matheys and the Schoharie NY Mattice clan??
