Surnames: Mathewson, Wood, Cole
My Gr-grandfather was James W Mathewson, b.1860. He married Martha Jane Wood, b.1863. Her mother was Sarah Ann Cole.
James and Martha ended up in Vanceburg, Kentucky, with several children.
I believe the Woods lived in Loogootee.
If you have any information on any of these folks I would surely appreciate it.
Thanks!

Otis was my grandmother's brother, middle name Wood. Almost certainly, James was her brother known as Wilford. The others I don't recognize.
More interested in learnig about their background in Indiana and beyond.
Correct spelling has only one T.

I have names and dates, but no spouses or descendants, for all James Stephen's other children. All the locations given are across the river in Martin Co.

Do you know anything about where old Moses came from?

Hello, a bit off subject, but I was wondering if you know anything of Mary Alice McKinney b. 19 Oct 1855 d. 01 Dec 1929 Martin Co., IN. She married John Bernard Seal 22 Oct 1873 I believe in Loogootee, certainly Martin Co. and was the mother of Bernard Waldo Seal. I know she had one sibling with a daughter Carlie Spalding, not sure if that's maiden or married name, a niece that Alice left her diamond ring.

I'm also interested in your Mary Charlotte Padgett. I too have a Mary Charlotte, but mine was born Oct 1871 married 1915 to Peter Joseph Schneider. She was daug of William Zachariah and Phebe Halbert. I know it's a different person but would like to know who were the parents of your Mary Charlotte? I believe I have her as Charlotta, dau of Benedict Joseph Padgett Sr. and Eliza Gates and aunt to my Mary Charlotte. I have her b. abt 1836 and d. 1911 in Loogootee.
