I am from San Antonio, Texas with deep roots in Southern Illinois. Sorry, but I do not have any George's or James's in my line or any ancestor's in Indiana.

Donald,

I wonder where you are from? I came across a Donald Mathis in Kentucky. I am planning on writing to him. Could this be you?
Trying to track down George Mathis, no dates but would probably be early to middle 1800's, who lived in Kentucky. A son James T. moved from Spencer County, Ky. to Edinburgh, Johnson County, In., a second son W. Aymer is buried in Taylorsville, Ky., and two more sons are unaccounted for. I wonder if one could have moved to Union County, Il. They would probably be your Marvin's grandfather's age.
Do any of these names sound familiar to you?

I am looking for Mathis' that settled in or around Alto Pass, IL. Specifically looking for anyone that has info on Benjamin Mathis born 1861 in Alto Pass. He married Mary Presley around 1880. They had three children: George Washington Mathis, Peter Harrison Mathis, and Jacob Wilson Mathis. Benjamin died in 1899 and Mary in 1889.
Thanks!

Joseph Valentine Mathis born about 1850, at one time said that he was born in Alto Pass. He said that he had a brother Benjamin and a younger brother named Samuel. Samuel had a son George. I am wondering if your Benjamin and my Joseph V. were brothers. If so, I might have some ideas. Are you certain about his birth date?

Sounds promising. I think I got the birth date from a relative. I am not sure how sound it is. I know that Benjamin married a Mary Presley and she died at 24. She died the same year her son Jacob was born. Ben had George, Peter, and Jacob. I have little on Benjamin except this the Alto Pass info. Seems like this Mathis family stayed in that area.

I know this post is 10 years old. Benjamin is my great grandfather-- Bobbie M is my niece (she posted the original question in 2000) This has to be the same family-- from Alto pass. What information do you have regarding this family? My grandfather, Benjamin's son jacob, was very poor and knew very little about his grandparents, other than their names and the very little that Bobbie M provided . I'd love to know more about this.
